If you need to create an ad-hoc VM backup with minimal time and effort, or you’re looking for an effective way of copying virtual machines within one or between different VMware infrastructures, select Protect and Restore - VM Copy Tool.
Unlike competitive solutions, VM Copy Tool fully encapsulates the target VM, including its current state, all available snapshots, and connected external devices. It still does the job even if you don’t use clusters or shared storage and your VMware license doesn’t allow utilizing vMotion technology. By leveraging the native VMware NFC (Network File Copy) and Paragon’s data transfer technology Paragon Protect and Restore - VM Copy Tool is able to deploy a bunch of virtual machines or individual files from one ESX(i) host or vCenter to another in one simple action.
Paragon VM Copy Tool is ideal if you need to create a full backup of a Linux or Windows virtual machine resided on any version of ESX(i) or vCenter from 4.1 update 3 up to 6.5, including its current state, all available snapshots, and connected external devices. As backup location you can choose a mounted local or network disk available in the system. To minimize network traffic and the target storage requirements, contents of the target machine are double compressed during the process: when creating data streams and then by archiving these streams into a .zip file. To avoid unauthorized access, all VM files are not exported as they are, but as a set of secured data containers with GUID names.

Of course, there are third-party tools on the market that can ease this pain, but if you are looking for a "real relief", try our free Paragon Protect and Restore VM Copy Tool.
