With this application you can get a single QNAP NAS to manage backups without purchasing a separate backup server and a storage server. This way you save money and you can offload the virtual infrastructure from backup tasks.

This solution allows to separate backup software and backup storage from the virtualized environment ensuring you can recover your data even if some of your VMware or Hyper-V servers are down.
