Virtualization

Amazon Web Services

Replicate Instances from AWS to AWS

You can replicate instances (VMs) from an AWS source account to an AWS destination site. The destination site can be in the same region and zone, or in a different region or zone.

You can replicate from streaming backups, perform planned or unplanned failovers, and perform failbacks after a failover.

You can configure replication using the Command Center.

For more information, see Replication for Virtual Machines (Command Center).

Microsoft Azure

For VM Backups, Use Changed Block Tracking with Azure Managed Disks

You can use Changed Block Tracking with Azure managed disks.

Changed Block Tracking (CBT) is a mechanism that enhances the backup performance of Azure virtual disks. It is enabled by default. With CBT, Azure API detects the changed blocks (changed page range information) on Azure virtual disks by comparing the binary large object (BLOB) snapshots. With this comparison, CBT for Azure provides better backup performance than traditional cyclic redundancy check (CRC) backups.

This option is available from the Command Center or from the CommCell Console, for incremental backup jobs and backup copy jobs.

Restore Virtual Machines to a Specific Region

You can designate a specific region to which the virtual machine will be restored.

You can restore cross regionally during full virtual machine restore, Live Sync, and conversion operations.

This option is available from the Command Center or from the CommCell Console, for both streaming and IntelliSnap backup jobs.

For more information, see the following pages:

For full virtual machine restore operations:

For VM conversion operations:

For Live Sync/Replication operations:

OpenStack

Perform Failbacks for OpenStack Replication

You can perform failbacks to return OpenStack instances to a primary site after a failover.

For more information, see Cross-Platform Feature Support.

vCloud Director

For VMware or vCloud Director hypervisors, you can back up and restore virtual machines running in vCloud Director 9.7.

This support is available in the Command Center and in the CommCell Console, for Service Pack 15 and more recent service packs.

VMware

Commvault Plug-In for vSphere Web Client (HTML5 Version)

The Commvault plug-in provides recovery of virtual machines and files from within the vSphere Web Client (HTML5 version). vSphere users can manage and restore virtual machines or files using the Commvault Command Center inside the vSphere Web Client.

You can use the Commvault plug-in with vSphere 6.5.x or vSphere 6.7.x, when the vCenter is running on a Windows or Linux machine.

For more information, see Commvault Plug-In for vSphere Web Client (HTML5 Version).

Virtual Machine Conversion (Cross-Hypervisor Restores)

Convert Virtual Machines from Azure to Hyper-V (Cross-Hypervisor Restore)

When restoring a virtual machine from a backup for Azure Resource Manager, you can convert the VM to Hyper-V.

This feature can be used to migrate workloads to Hyper-V, or to recover VMs in Hyper-V if the Azure Resource Manager deployment is unavailable.

This option is available from the Command Center or from the CommCell Console, using streaming backups or IntelliSnap backup copies.
