Backup is nothing without recovery. From a single image-based backup, Veeam® Backup & Replication™ provides a wide range of capabilities that can help you tackle virtually any recovery scenario. Best of all, Veeam ensures you get exactly what you need—virtual machine (VM), file-level and application-item recovery, and e-discovery—when you need it through its agentless, easy-to-use and wizard-driven UI.
With Instant VM Recovery™ you can run any virtualized application on VMware vSphere or Microsoft 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, Hyper-V Live Migration 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 equal. 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.

E-discovery and granular recovery
Application-item recovery just got a lot faster and easier. Zero in on exactly what you need to recover and restore individual items directly from your backups with Veeam Explorers™ for:
Microsoft Active Directory: Search and restore all Active Directory (AD) object types, such as users, groups, computer accounts and contacts—even user and computer passwords
Microsoft SQL: Get fast transaction-level recovery of SQL databases, including agentless transaction log backup and replay, so you can restore your SQL databases to a precise point in time and achieve low recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™).
ENHANCED! Microsoft Exchange: Get instant visibility into Exchange 2010 and 2013 backups, advanced search capabilities, and quick recovery of individual Exchange items (emails, contacts, notes, etc.) and Online Archive mailboxes—even hard-deleted items
Microsoft SharePoint: Browse SharePoint 2010 and 2013 backups, search for specific SharePoint files and quickly recover items directly to their original SharePoint server or send them as an email attachment
Storage Snapshots: Leverage existing snapshot capabilities from HP and NetApp for recovery of single files or entire VMs from Storage Snapshots in 2 minutes or less—without staging or intermediate steps
The most common restore at our company is for items that users accidently delete in Microsoft Exchange. With Veeam, we search for the users’ mailboxes, find the items (usually emails), and restore them back to their mailboxes in minutes.

Instant File-Level Recovery
Recover files directly from a backup
Recover guest OS files and folders on the fly directly from an image-level backup—without the preliminary step of extracting virtual disks. Recover files from Windows and Linux VMs, or any of the 17 supported guest file systems.
The overall speed we get with Veeam Backup & Replication is amazing. VM backup speed increased by more than 50 percent … VM recovery takes less than five minutes … and single-item restore is 10 times faster.

U-AIR (Universal Application-Item Recovery)
Recover application items without agents
Recover items from ANY virtualized application without agents, additional backups or software tools. The U-AIR wizard helps you to start your applications from the backup recovery point and extract what you need with native application tools—no special backup agents or additional license fees required.
Veeam Enterprise Manager enables you to search for guest OS files in VM backups and restore them with one click. With this option selected, Veeam Backup & Replication creates an index of VM guest OS files and allows you to search for Windows guest files in the VM backups. Once you find the file you need, you can immediately restore it with one click, either to its original location or download it to a local machine.
Self-service VM and file recovery
New delegation options let IT departments safely empower business unit managers for recovery of their own files and VMs. In addition, delegated helpdesk personnel do not require additional permissions—they simply find and restore files back to their original location without having access to file contents.
Use 1-Click Restore self-service recovery of VMs and guest files—without the need for:
Direct network connection to the VM
User permissions on the host or VM
An agent in the VM
One of the features we like is 1-Click Restore. It lets us recover entire VMs and individual files, and we have the option of delegating restores to designated users
