Any Agent in the backup network can act as a final storage, or as a “staging” machine that further transfers the data to FTP, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV, Google Drive, Amazon S3, or other storage.

It is possible to back up and restore Hyper-V machines by two ways: internal and external.

  • The internal way requires installation of the Network Agent on the virtual machine. Using it for backing up and restoring is like using of any other Network Agent.
  • The external way allows to back up an entie virtual machine by using the Network Agent installed on the computer where the Hyper-V machine is running.

You can read more about backing up Hyper-V data in the related article.

Backing up VMware Using Server Network Backup

Handy Backup can save copies of VMware virtual machines. Handy Backup Server Network can copy an image of any VMware virtual machine from a remote server.

It is strongly recommended to perform backing up VMware machine in a cold mode, i.e., after stopping the VMware engine. Handy Backup allows to stop VMware automatically by using pre-actions and post-actions.

To stop VMware before creating a copy, user may set the pre-action of this format: call "c:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Server\vmware-cmd" "c:\PathToMyVirtualMachine\VMConfig.vmx" suspend And to start the machine again after the process of backup, use the post-action like this: call "c:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Server\vmware-cmd" "c:\PathToMyVirtualMachine\VMConfig.vmx" start It is also completely possible to install a copy of Network Agent on a virtual machine under the control of VMware engine and perform an internal backup, as described in the previous section.
