Find a single, affordable method of backing up VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.
In 2014, CoreTech expanded its business by offering cloud computing services to customers in Italy and the United Kingdom under the name Stellar. Advertised as a more affordable alternative to cloud providers Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google, Stellar provided virtual machines (VMs) with guaranteed performance for a monthly payment.
CoreTech marketed the service to developers, web agencies, system integrators, and managed service providers. One of the selling points, in addition to Stellar’s guaranteed performance, was reliable data protection via regular backups.
CoreTech needed a way to protect Stellar customers’ data by backing up their VMs. The solution also needed to be affordable, to suit Stellar’s low-price model. In addition, CoreTech’s employees needed to back up the VMs they used for testing purposes, which they had created using Microsoft Hyper-V.
