Project for Today: Back Up Your VDI

By Julie Griffin, Contributing Writer

Stop procrastinating. You know it’s important. With the recent fires blazing across the West and tales of cyber sabotage spreading across offices with equal ferocity, one would think that now would be the time to tackle VDI back up and storage recovery. However, it’s a task that is often overlooked in lieu of some other project that is seemingly more pressing at the moment. SEP warns, “In today’s world that is just not smart.”

SEP has a theory. In a press release from Monday, the company suggests that VDI users are hesitant to back up virtual desktop infrastructure because they believe it to be a complicated and time-consuming task. Furthermore, VDI users are often misled to believe that everything involving VDI backup and service recovery has already been said. SEP is ready to clear the air and let everyone know, they are dead wrong.

1)      VDI Back Up and Disaster Recovery is Simple. SEP points out that DR technology has evolved immensely, and the task is completed in a matter of minutes or hours, not weeks. SEP Software is such a thorough solution, that you can perform backup tasks on both physical and virtual environments for practically every O/S and database. The server setup takes mere minutes and the results are data written to SAN, disk, library, etc. An additional perk of backing up data from LAN by writing it to SAN, is that you free up space and simultaneously resolve wireless backhaul issues.

2)      New Innovations in VDI Back Up. Before you think you’ve heard it all and prepare for a mental vacation, check out SEP Sesam, a software solution that completes the entire job from beginning to end. Citrix’sXen Servers are perhaps the most popular VDI systems, and SEP offers an example of their innovative recovery solutions designed for this system. SEP Software has a unique function that records the state of your server before it went down, so that reconfiguration and other tasks are not necessary in order to have everything exactly how it was upon re-activation of your system.
