Windows Image-level Backups Overview

Windows image-level protection employs block acceleration to deliver lightning-fast backup performance for Windows servers, particularly those with millions of files. Because Windows assets are backed up at the disk and volume level, image-level protection yields faster backup performance than file-level protection. With this increased backup speed, you can snapshot more frequently to reduce data loss in the event of an outage.

NOTE  Image-level backups are not supported for virtual machines in these environments: Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Instead, use agent-based file-level and application backups.
