Sometimes, it is the small things that make life as an IT-Professional easier!
Anybody who had to move and restore huge virtual disks knows what I am talking about. There are quite often two types of data on a disk: Unimportant data, easily restorable or always included in a base image, and important data, which normally is the business data for the user.
In the past one could not separate this data easily, but was forced to go with the heavy lifting on virtual disk level.
Selective Disk Backup, exactly will help us out here, giving us a finer level of control on what to backup and restore.
What makes it interesting is that:
- You can save a lot of storage space, as business data normally is much smaller
- Restore times are shortened significantly due to the smaller volume
As stated in headline, the service is in preview!
Just the right time to take for a test drive! 🙂
