Product Positioning

Product Positioning

This section describes positioning and values of the eBackup software in the public cloud backup scenario.


As the trend of cloud-based enterprise IT systems speeds up, an increasing number of enterprises deploy their service systems in cloud and virtual environments. Data protection in cloud and virtual environments includes:

  • Protection for massive data on Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs) and Elastic Volume Service (EVS) disks
  • Backup and restore of virtual machines (VMs)
  • Reduction of backup cost and the total cost of ownership (TCO) for IT systems

Enterprises and users are in urgent need for backup solutions that provide easy-to-operate and cost-effective protection for backup of massive data on ECSs and EVS disks.

Software Positioning

eBackup is virtual and cloud-oriented backup software developed by Huawei. Based on VM or disk snapshot, Changed Block Tracking (CBT), and snapshot comparison technologies, the software provides comprehensive protection for user data in public cloud and private cloud backup scenarios.

A public cloud refers to the cloud provided for common users. Public cloud services are free or cost-effective over the Internet. The core attribute of a public cloud is its shared resources.

In public cloud scenarios, eBackup backs up and restores data of ECSs and EVS disks for public cloud tenants and provides backup services for tenants.

Public Cloud Backup Solution

Huawei Public Cloud Solution provides diversified services for users, such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS). By using Huawei Public Cloud Solution, Huawei provides users with professional IT services in a timely manner.

Volume Backup Service (VBS) provides disk snapshot-based protection for local data on ECSs in public cloud environments.

Cloud Server Backup Service (CSBS) provides local data protection services for ECSs in public cloud environments.

Huawei Public Cloud Backup Solution consists of the following components:

  • Backup object

    Indicates a protected object. Huawei Public Cloud Backup Solution provides data protection for EVS disks and ECSs in Huawei public cloud environments.

  • eBackup software

    Provides underlying software functions for VBS and CSBS, and manages backup and restore jobs in a public cloud environment. The eBackup software can be deployed on either VMs or physical servers. The software cannot be deployed using a template and a software package at the same time in one eBackup system. Its performance can be expanded by adding Proxies.

  • Backup storage

    Simple Storage Service (S3) storage is supported.

  • Backup policy

    Protection policies can be created for one or multiple VM disks. Permanent incremental backup is supported to reduce the amount of data to be backed up.
