A backup of a Virtual Machine can be a lengthy process. But in xackup tool entire VM machine with a few simple clicks. Xackup is designed to be an easy to use light weight solution to backing up your XenServer virtual machines.
You can also schedule your xackup tool to get back up from your XenServer in a given date, time, and frequency. After completion, the task xackup sends you a report of the task on your registered email, which keeps informing you all the time about your backup status.
Xackup tool doesn't use any propriety storage format; your backup is stored in compressed archives format, and to do all this work standard XenServer method is used by the xackup tool. There requirement of any dedicated server for this tool.

Quite a few years ago, both of us had made decent livings writing code. Some of the projects were rather substantial and were used in highly regulated industries, while others were a bit more modest.
Regardless of the scope, we both found it important to ensure there was an understanding of the solution being delivered. Where confusion over the project would arise, it was always imperative to provide answers to any questions posed. After all, user expectations go a long way to follow on sales and greater adoption.
Unfortunately for XenServer, there is a bit of inherent confusion out there. For years, we both have heard people who want XenServer, but refer to it as “Xen” and occasionally as “a Xen Server.”
While some of those people aren’t in a technical position, when they need answers to a burning question, it’s important to get them the right answer quickly.
As an example, if someone is working on a project that they want to integrate with XenServer, it does them no good to look at resources describing how “Xen” works.
While the two technologies are definitely related, the right answer for “Xen” might be the wrong answer for “XenServer,” and knowing the difference between these is key for any XenServer administrator.
Sure, we now know that “XenServer is a pre-packaged Xen-based virtualization solution” built around the Xen Project, but this is merely the beginning, as now we need to explain what Xen is, what it does, and how it forms the complete XenServer solution for which you will be responsible.
