Pure in Perspective

  • Simple, 5-minute deployment & setup as a VM appliance

  • No additional hardware or software costs

  • Optimized speed & minimum data transfer using Changed-Block-Tracking (CBT)

  • Ensured data integrity via backup verifications

  • Streamlined recovery of single VM, VMDK or single file

  • All-in-one, browser-based user interface

  • Scalability for virtual backup systems

  • Fully-featured, 90-day free trial

  • Cost-effective licensing at €500/physical host server

Focused on Essential Features

Archiware Pure is a powerful and lean solution. Incremental backups are performed using Changed-Block-Tracking (CBT) to optimize speed and minimize data transfer. Entire VMs, single VMDKs or simply single files can instantly be recovered from any backup cycle. Maximum data integrity is ensured through daily backup verifications.

Backup execution is fully automated. Flexible scheduling is enabled using backup windows. The round-robin method of rotating backup and verify jobs is intelligently designed. It ensures that even fully-scheduled backup windows allow time for verification of all completed backup jobs at regular intervals.

Easy Installation & Operation

Pure is quickly configured as a VMware® Virtual Appliance following a simple, 5-minute installation. The appliance resides on a VMware server with other virtual machines. There are no additional hardware costs for a physical backup server.

Separate configuration or supplementary software is also not required. The browser-based user interface allows Pure to be used on any platform or device.

Backing Up Virtual Machines with Pure

In the first phase of a backup run, all systems are saved incrementally. VMware® delivers the required information with which Pure is able to copy only modified data. This way, numerous virtual machines can be backed up in minutes.

In the second phase, Archiware Pure verifies that original and backed up data are identical. This second phase guarantees maximum data security and integrity.

Essentially, all systems are backed up first and then verified in the remaining time frame. If the available backup window cannot accommodate a verification of all machines, the next run will start with the systems that have previously not been verified after a backup of all VMs is completed.

Minimum Investment & Operating Costs

Pure Preistabelle EN

Archiware Pure licensing starts at €500 for backup and restore of all VMs on one physical host server. As user requirements change, virtual backup systems can easily be scaled to individual business needs.


Archiware Pure includes the first 12 months of software maintenance at no additional cost. The maintenance covers two major aspects: access to the latest software version and access to manufacturer support.
