Easy to install and use

VM Explorer® is easily installed and ready to use within minutes. The download size of the software is less than 30 MB and just a few clicks complete the installation. No additional software or dedicated VM on your ESX, ESXi or Hyper-V servers are required.

Fair and simple pricing

VM Explorer® is licensed on the basis of an extremely simple pricing model – per installation and not per ESX/Hyper-V host or core. In most cases, only one license is required to back up your entire infrastructure.

Multi-hypervisor support

VM Explorer® integrates VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V into the same software.

Automated backup test

VM Explorer® offers the option to automatically test a backup. The automated test runs the backup in order to test the correct start of the VM. The email report contains a health status and screenshots of the test process. Currently, this feature is only available for ESX/ESXi.

Full and incremental backups

In addition to full backups, VM Explorer® supports Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for the creation of incremental backups – enabling you to restore your backups to any version in their history.

Replication for disaster recovery

With point-in-time replication, you can replicate any VM on another host, which can then be used for disaster recovery. The VM is automatically registered to your backup server and ready to run. If change tracking is enabled, VM Explorer® will replicate any changes on the new target host.
