Citrix XenServer Backup

SEP offers advanced backup and disaster recovery features for Citrix XenServer. SEP displays the XenServer infrastructure in the management interface, showing available VMs and simplifying the planning and execution of automated backup processes. No additional effort is required to back up and protect any XenServer environment.

Changed Block Tracking (CBT) allows SEP software to free up disk space and creates the option to perform Full, Differential and Incremental backups.

The software communicates directly with the Citrix XenServer API to back up snapshot images of VMs without the need for clients/agents. You simply enter your XenCenter username and password and a list of all Citrix hosts and VMs auto-populates. VMs can be dragged and dropped VMs into any backup group schedule.

SEP also includes Activation Loss Prevention by keeping the same MAC Address and UID so you don’t have to re-enter Windows Key Codes or re-activate third party software.
