How important is your virtual infrastructure and how important are your data? What if you lose all of you infrastructure tomorrow?

How important is your virtual infrastructure and how important are your data? What if you lose all of you infrastructure tomorrow? Are you prepared to recover efficiently? If your answer is "No" , or "I don’t know" it’s time to get some clues

The probability of a disk to fail one day or another is literally 100%. The question is not "Is there a risk that I lose my data ?" The question is "When will I lose data ?" and "Which are the data I can’t afford to lose ?"

Of course, all data don't have the same value, and all the backup solutions don't have the same cost. Continuous replication is a wonderful solution, but maybe it's not the solution you need. The only thing you need to be convinced right now, is that you must be prepared for a data loss.

How to choose your solution ?

o protect your XenServer infrastructure, solutions are numerous. Full backup, incremental delta backup, Continuous replication and even file level recovery tools... Xen Orchestra is providing a whole range of backups solutions. And you may wonder the one you really need for your company and how to choose it. Answer to the following questions will give you a big hint about the solution you really need.

How quickly do you need to recover from an IT disaster? Can you afford days of downtime? An hours? Few minutes?

What are the amount of data you are prepared to lose? Days worth? One day worth? Nothing more than an hour?

Are you prepared to handle what you need? The financial cost? The bandwidth cost? The storage cost?

Which Solution for which needs?

Now that you have answered the three previous questions, you should find the best option for you in the following features.

Downtime is not a major issue and I'm ready to lose potentially days (or more) of data. The biggest consideration is the cost. And backup storage space or speed is less important.

Your solution is Full backup.

Subscribe to Xen Orchestra is invest in the one tool you need to optimize your XenServer or XCP-ng infrastructure and here are the reasons why

Xen Orchestra is a user friendly all in one administration tool. It allows you to effectively reduce the administration time for your infrastructure, easily delegate access to your teams and provide a complete range of backup solutions.

All in one tool

reduce your administration time

All the administration, management, backup and Cloud related features you need are regrouped into one unique solution: Xen Orchestra. It's the one tool you need to subscribe to and learn in order to manage your entire infrastructure from A to Z.

Delegate access easily

With ACLs and Self-Service features, it's easy to provide the right access to specific persons in your team.

The Access Control List feature allows you to delegate existing resources in your infrastructure so users can access it on their own, without interfering with your global XenServer/XCP-ng infrastructure.

On the other hand, with self-service, you can define a limited set of resources your users can access to create VMs and use them when they need it.

Access your infrastructure from anywhere

Xen Orchestra is a web-ui. It means that as long as you have an internet connection, you can connect to your XenServer/XCP-ng infrastructure and manage it from any device, from anywhere and at any moment!

And as a web interface, you no longer need to rely on a desktop with a Windows OS.

Easy to learn interface

Xen Orchestra has been designed to be a user-friendly interface and comes with complete documentation, live chat assistance and our pro support ticket services.

It should not take long for you to become an expert!


Because we are using NodeJS and asynchronous technologies, our architecture is able to manage from 1 to more than 4000+ VMs. Xen Orchestra is much faster and reliable than XenCenter!

Even if you only take into account loading time, you will already save a lot of time.

Backup your VMS and save money

Did you know that the estimated cost of a lost file is around $154 USD and that every week in the US, 140,000 Hard Drives fail?

Xen Orchestra provides a complete range of backup features for XenServer and XCP-ng that will help you to backup your entire infrastructure and VMs. Protect your data the right way, it's invaluable.

Note: Even if you need to change your entire infrastructure, as long as you have your backup stored in a remote, you just need to deploy a brand new XO appliance to recover everything. Xen Orchestra backs up your infrastructure to remote stores automatically!

Health monitoring to prevent bottlenecks

Xen Orchestra is not only an administration tool that helps you to solve your issues when they occur, it's also a solution that will help you to prevent issues before they happen.

With a global vision of your infrastructure and a complete dashboard of statistics, you will be able to detect bottlenecks before they start to create trouble in your environment.

You can also get regular reports directly to your email, Slack or Mattermost channel.

Multi hypervisor support

Xen Orchestra is optimized to run on both Citrix XenServer and XCP-ng hypervisors.

XCP-ng is a Citrix XenServer based hypervisor - an open source project powered by the community and delivering high performance for any type of user, from homelab to world-class datacenters. While the XCP-ng hypervisor itself is entirely free with no license restrictions, you can still subscribe to pro support in order to always be covered by our experts.
