Reading Time: 6 minutes PHD Virtual has released the new PHD Virtual Backup 6.2 with a cloud feature called Cloud Hook that permit to save the backup also on some public cloud provider (like Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles, Google Cloud Storage, or any local provider that supports OpenStack/Swift cloud storage). The product is still available both for VMware vSphere and also for Citrix XenServer (and probably is the main professional backup solution for this hypervisor). I’ve tested the product beta for VMware (on vSphere 5.1) to verify the cloud features.
