The Alike Appliance (A2) is a purpose built backup and DR solution which can be run as a VM on any major hypervisor, or can be installed directly on bare metal.

Minimum System Requirements (A2)
16GB System disk
Backup Storage for data--Local Disk, CIFS/SMB, NFS, or GlusterFS
Additional RAM can help with larger load/environments. 

See Backend Tuning for more information on scaling.

  • Citrix Hypervisor (XenServer) 6.5 - 8.2
  • XCP-ng
  • Microsoft Hyper-V 2008R2 - 2016

Other platforms may work, but have not yet been tested for compatibility.
