    Am sure the VMware guys will backup the statement that Veeam is pretty much #1 in the 'value' stakes when it comes to VMware based backup, well - its coming for Hyper-V too and from what we've seen so far, will almost certainly enter the market in a leading position - details here:

    Point taken :-) I guess we're still a small company and our focus has been on the software. Now we have a stable and successful product out there we'll be tweaking our look and feel over the coming months. Apologies if thats the impression we're giving. On the paypal front though, we find that this is the best way to give customers confidence in purchasing from us - you can use a CC and not register with paypal at all.

    Can you clarify that for me please?

    Thanks.

    Ben, we are based in the UK. We have priced the product in $ purely because this has been our largest market takeup so far. I'd be happy to take on board any feedback around the website marketing/pricing of the product.

    Thumbs up Hyperoo Rocks

    I am a week into using Hyperoo, and it is a solid product. After seeding my first backup, I was able to backup
    5 LIVE VHD's , about 328Gig of data in a little over 3 hours over an internet 10MBPS connection. The tech support is awesome, and the product is very solid. It is nice to have a standby server in a remote location, ready to go in case of an extended datacentre outage. It is worth your time to take this $79 program for a free test drive. It is licensed per server, so it does not matter how many VM' you have.

    PS.. I would like to see an address and phone number on the website. GFI woudl be my second selection, from what I can tell it is around $395 per server.

    Thumbs up

    Hyperoo pass the test, and we are using it in production with six machines to make remote internet backups.
    One thing to consider with any software that backups VM's, when you run a defrag and have not done so in a while, the VHD can change quite a bit and take a while to replicate. Below find my logs. The proof is in the puddin'. Take this software for a free test drive and you will not be sorry!

    Is that 15 hours to transfer 38GB of changed deltas?

    Yes, over a 6MBPS internet link, with encryption and compression.

    Well hyperoo saved my bacon today

    The hard drive in my hyper-v server containing my vhd's died over the weekend but due to implementing hyperoo as our vm backup solution the files were restored to an alternate location and the vm's recreated.

    i'm looking at this to use in our server 2012 enviro..... it sounded too good to be true..... so its great to see a you comment on this plexer..... we wanted to use backup exec but it lacks support for server 2012 (at the mo).

    we can't wait anylonger so it look like we'll give the trial a go...... can you add anything else before we take the leap of faith... anything i should know about?

    Cheers

    Maybe better we move this onto email so it doesn't look like we're spamming this forum? You can get me at martin [at] hyperoo dot net

    Thanks.

    Martin.
