Comprehensive Proxmox Backup Support with Catalogic DPX
Catalogic DPX integrates efficiently with Proxmox Virtual Environment (VE), an open-source server management platform that combines KVM hypervisor and LXC with software-defined storage and networking on a single platform. As a comprehensive data protection solution, DPX vPlus enables agentless Proxmox backup and recovery, ensuring that your virtual machines (VMs) and containers are secure and recoverable.

Challenges of Proxmox Backup

1. Complex Backup Management:

Managing backups in virtualized environments can be complex, especially with agent-based solutions that require installing, updating, and managing backup agents on each virtual machine.

2. Inefficient Snapshot Management:

Manually managing hypervisor snapshots, including their schedules and retention policies, can be time-consuming and may not ensure optimal system performance or data protection.

3. Large Backup Windows and High Storage Needs:

Traditional backup methods can lead to large backup windows and excessive storage requirements by backing up all data, regardless of whether it has changed since the last backup.

4. Inclusion of Unnecessary Data in Backups:

Backing up temporary or non-essential data consumes valuable backup storage space and resources, making the backup process less efficient.

5. Balancing Comprehensive Protection with Efficient Resource Use:

Ensuring comprehensive data protection while efficiently managing backup storage and minimizing system resource impact can be a significant challenge.

Key Features for Proxmox Backup

Streamlined Integration with Proxmox VE
Catalogic DPX vPlus integrates with Proxmox VE to enable agentless backup and recovery, providing a streamlined approach to protecting your virtual infrastructure without the need for installing agents on each VM.
Hypervisor Snapshot Management
DPX vPlus offers hypervisor snapshot management, allowing for efficient backup and recovery processes. This feature supports a range of hypervisors, including Proxmox, and manages snapshot schedules and retention times.
Efficient Backups with full and incremental backup
For Proxmox VE, DPX vPlus provides incremental backups, minimizing backup windows and reducing storage requirements. This method ensures that only the changed data are backed up after the initial full backup.

Disk-Exclusion Option for Backups
DPX vPlus allows users to exclude specific VM disks from backups, optimizing backup storage by omitting disks that store temporary or non-essential data. This feature is particularly useful for environments with large temp files.
Full Image and Incremental Backup
DPX vPlus supports full image backup with native hypervisor integration and incremental backup for Proxmox VE, ensuring comprehensive data protection and efficient use of backup storage.
