Trilead VM Explorer isn't new to my regular readers. Product that allows to backup VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V VMs with industry unique licensing, there are not many on the market. In fact it's only Trilead which allows to buy single license for your virtual environment to backup all your VMs. Trilead VM Explorer 5.0 New Features were announced during VMworld 2013.
Trilead allows backing up VMs but also does offer replication. It's a solid product which gets updated on regular basis with every release of vSphere. For VMware and Hyper-V users, the Trilead's pricing model offers quite unbeatable value. Upcoming enterprise version (in 2014) will allow remote execution of backed up VMs in a sandbox environment which can be useful for testing application updates or installing Microsoft patches, and then testing before pushing into production environments.
I have wrote about the Beta release of Trilead here. During my visit VMworld I passed by Trilead's booth and it was first time I've met those guys. Trilead is a Suiss based company.
The Trilead VM Explorer 5.0 will be announced after VMworld:
- Web based interface (without needing Flash) allowing manage the product remotely via web browser or tablet
- Automatic Backup verification with
- vSphere 5.5 Support
- Roadmap for 2014 allows remote execution of backups, testing patches in a sandbox.
