SEP also offers methodology to set up fast and stable backup and recovery for Xen.
Xen creates para-virtualized guest-systems that can be captured and restored by SEP sesam in the event of a system interruption or failure. These do not have respective interfaces like other virtualization solutions for backups and restores. Therefore, SEP sesam uses the snapshot method (LVM) to back up the guest-systems.
Through the integrated generation of snapshots from the defined backup tasks of SEP sesam, no additional planning and observation is required. Data required to restore a running Xen virtual machine, can be found in the data base maintained by the SEP central administration and configuration interface.
- Snapshot backup via LVM
- Administration and Reporting in SEP sesam Management Interface
- Highest performance
