SAN DIEGO -- BakBone Software (Pink Sheets:BKBO), the leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, is answering customer demand for broader, more integrated virtualization data management solutions with new offerings that uniquely address current and future virtual data protection challenges and lay the foundation for long term, scalable data growth across virtual environments. BakBone today announced it is developing the essential building blocks for simplifying virtualization data protection and management including: support for multiple hypervisors and Windows and Linux guest virtual machines, advanced support of applications running within virtual machines, remote office data protection for virtual environments, and bare metal recovery enhancements optimized for virtual environments.

Leading the market with tightly integrated VMware support and script-free VCB backups, BakBone is one of the few backup vendors that has developed VMware data protection capabilities to fully comply with VMware’s program. Today, in a separate announcement, BakBone announced formal certification by VMware for NetVault®: Backup VMware Application Plugin Module™ (APM). Based on the technical innovation and development efforts of its VMware backup and recovery solution, BakBone was also recently awarded the VARBusiness Tech Innovator Company of the Year in the storage category.

As organizations increasingly turn to virtualization to reduce energy, hardware acquisition and floor space costs, they are enlisting BakBone to support the data protection needs of their virtual environments. “At First National Technology Solutions (FNTS), we are committed to giving our customers the best service possible with the highest level of security,” said Nick Britton, backup administrator, FNTS. “The functionality and power of NetVault: Backup are instrumental in helping us maintain the vast amount of data we protect every day.
