A key benefit for using BackupSimple is its ability to provide you with the technical capability to deliver agentless backups across all of your virtualization platforms using shared disk technology. This includes on-premises hypervisors with SAN/NAS capability or your public cloud IaaS/PaaS tenant subscriptions. BackupSimple enables tagging to automate the backup for a server at the point of build, allowing your teams to focus on the application, and not how the infrastructure and application is being protected.
Agentless data backups offer some major advantages over agent-based backups. SoftwareONE recommends its use wherever possible, and it can be especially beneficial for VM backups. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of agentless backup, as opposed to traditional agent-based backup.
Automation and flexibility
Deploy your infrastructure through automated tools for consistency, with the confidence that all servers that are deployed will be backed up as needed without having to deploy agents or add agents manually into the backup plans.
This is a big one as more organizations turn to cloud environments. Agentless allows you to have a single agent that monitors and controls the backup of all VMs deployed without having to install an agent on each VM.
Ease of administration & control
Because agentless lets you have a single point of management across the environment, restoration of data is easier as there is a single place to monitor the data from
Because it’s agentless, BackupSimple provides the ability to restore VMs across the platform, changing their size and name as needed, giving your business the flexibility it requires to host or recover the service as needed
