Backup in virtual environments should already be a basic element. Since virtualization became more common, backup solutions for only virtual environments also emerged. Today the virtual backup can be easily done with the traditional backup solutions. Most of them enable also a user friendly work load transfer from platform to another or to public could. Accordingly it is also possible to backup cloud workload and restore it in own virtual environment or another cloud service. In this way it is possible to utilize the backup environment for managing data, the most valuable asset of a company and also get ready for different business continuity issues.
