Meet your backup windows

Veeam Backup & Replication creates lightning-fast VM backups while also giving you multiple backup options to meet your needs. Network mode (NBD) is available for any infrastructure configuration, but Veeam also provides Virtual Appliance (hot add) and Direct SAN Access modes that provide direct access to production storage, taking load off of your management network and hypervisor hosts, and maximizing backup performance. Plus, features such as source-side deduplication and compression, change block tracking, parallel processing, automatic load balancing and the exclusion of swap files ensure the fastest, most efficient backups possible.

The other backup products we evaluated just didn’t measure up to Veeam Backup & Replication. They were slow, expensive, and didn’t have all the capabilities that Veeam offers.

Recover a failed VM in less than 2 minutes!

With Instant VM Recovery™ you can run any virtualized application on vSphere or Hyper-V directly from the latest backup. Instead of making users wait while you provision storage, extract the backup and copy it to production, you can simply start a VM with Veeam’s patented vPower® technology. After that, use VMware Storage vMotion or Veeam’s proprietary Quick Migration to move VM back to production storage.

While many vendors claim to be able recover a VM quickly, not all VM recovery solutions are created equally. Veeam’s Instant VM Recovery:

  • Delivers first-to-market technology proven by tens of thousands of customers worldwide
  • Supports both vSphere and Hyper-V and is storage agnostic
  • Does not require additional VMware Storage vMotion licensing

Little did we know that Veeam’s Instant VM Recovery capability would later save the day after a fire at our Corby site in the UK.

Advanced VM Replication

Complement your VMware and Hyper-V backups with ready-to-use VM replicas to get near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) and enhance your business continuity. In case of virtualized application failure, you can immediately switch over to its exact copy and run it either on your main or remote site. Veeam’s replication allows you to:

  • Achieve less than 15 minutes RPOs for any virtualized application
  • Maintain image-based replicas either onsite for high-availability or offsite for disaster recovery
  • Simplify replica failover and failback with delta synchronization and automated IP re-addressing
Learn more about Replication

In the past we mirrored the VMs in our primary data centre to a SAN in our secondary data centre. Now we use Veeam for replication. It’s more flexible and user-friendly, and it is much more cost-effective.
