Backup … virtually simplified

MAX Backup provides fast, secure, and reliable backup of your Hyper-V environment with cloud-based backup and recovery of Hyper-V hosts, images and data. By using the cloud, MAX Backup ensures you can easily recover Virtual Machines (VMs) without relying on expensive, failure-prone on-premise hardware, delivering a successful recovery every time.

Backup features


Native VM Integration

Support for Hyper-V on Server 2008 and Server 2012 and utilization of Cluster Shared Volumes provides complete backup coverage of your virtual environment.


Hot VM Backups

Make hot backups of already running VMs for up to the minute protection of your data and virtual devices.


Granular Data Protection

Easily recover an entire VM, the host server, and even a single file within a Virtual Machine.



There’s no need to backup entire VM images. MAX Backup uses True Delta technology to identify changed data, giving you the fastest and smallest backup possible.


Wide Area Network (WAN) Optimization

VM backups are optimized using deduplication and compression prior to transmission, with bandwidth throttling and automatic reconnection ensuring even the largest VM image changes are quickly backed up to the cloud.


Hybrid-Cloud Backups

Backups are saved to the cloud and, optionally, automatically to local storage, giving you instant backup redundancy.


Centralized Monitoring and Reporting

Manage all your backups centrally from the cloud where you can live monitor and be alerted to the state of your backups, storage use, data backed up, and the success/failure of each job.


Recovery features


Centralized Recovery Management

Manage the backup and recovery of both Hyper-V, and physical servers and workstations from a single console.


Hybrid Recovery

You can always recover, even without access to the Internet, via synchronized backups in the cloud and on local storage.


Fastest Recovery Possible

MAX Backup automatically selects the source (either local or cloud storage) that will provide the quickest recovery.


Virtual Drive Access

When you only need to recover a few files out of a VM, with the Virtual Drive, you can navigate through a backup just like your local computer, without needing to restore an entire VM.


Direct VM Recovery

Because VM system configurations are preserved during backup, all volume and system configuration data accompanies restores, making recovery to an existing or alternate VM host a simple task.


Virtual Disaster Recovery

In the event your physical servers are unavailable or not functioning, you can easily recover a physical server as a VM to Hyper-V.


Disaster Recovery Testing

Take advantage of your virtual environment by testing the automated recovery of your physical servers to VM images, saving time and without interrupting production.
