VMware Backup Features

2-in-1: backup and replication

Not only can you back up your VMs, but you can also perform image-based replication either on-site for high availability or offsite for disaster recovery (DR). With Veeam’s near-continuous data protection (near-CDP), if a VM goes down, you can immediately fail over to a standby VM.


There are no agents for you to license, deploy, manage or monitor on hosts or VMs.

Built-in WAN Acceleration

Increase the reliability of your data protection by copying backups offsite to remote storage. With built-in WAN Acceleration, you can get backups offsite 50x faster by utilizing caching, variable block length data fingerprinting and TCP/IP protocol optimizations.
Watch demo: Built-in WAN Acceleration

Backup from Storage Snapshots

Backup from Storage Snapshots gives you the ability to back up VMware VMs from HP and NetApp storage snapshots up to 20x faster and improve your DR protection by creating instant, secondary backups from NetApp snapshots. With Veeam, you can create image-based backups and replicas from storage snapshots as often as necessary, even during business hours with little-to-no impact to your production environment.
Watch demo: Backup from Storage Snapshots

Veeam Cloud Connect

Avoid the risk of catastrophic data loss through hosted backup repositories powered by Veeam Cloud Connect. It’s the easy, efficient way to get backups off site. With Veeam Cloud Connect, you can have fully-hosted offsite backups through an SSL connection and cloud gateway. You maintain complete visibility and control by easily accessing and recovering hosted data directly from your backup console. You can also leverage Built-in WAN Acceleration, Backup Copy jobs, forever incremental backups and more!

Native Tape Support

Easily meet compliance requirements and lengthy archiving policies with Native Tape Support. You can archive individual files or entire VM backups to tape and restore data from tape when needed.

EMC Data Domain Boost

EMC Data Domain Boost provides source-side data deduplication, yielding faster and more efficient backups that enable lower RPOs. Experience up to 50% faster backup performance, short backup windows with 10x faster synthetic full backup file creation and transformation, and Fibre Channel connectivity enabling LAN-free backup to Data Domain.

End-to-end Encryption

Secure your backups at the source, in-flight and at rest with end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption, without negative impact on WAN Acceleration and compression. Even if you lose a password, you can still recover data from encrypted backups without compromising security.
And it’s flexible—you can choose when and where to leverage encryption.


With compression and deduplication included at no extra charge, you can manage the large volumes of data generated by image-based backups. You will reduce backup storage consumption and the amount of data sent over the network. Combined with bandwidth throttling and scheduling capabilities, Veeam extends the protection of your VMware environment to an offsite location or into the cloud.

Centralized management

From a web-based console, you can monitor jobs across multiple backup servers, edit jobs on any server and search across all backups—all from a centralized location.

Enterprise scalability

Veeam Backup & Replication provides a distributed architecture to optimize performance in remote office/branch office (ROBO) and large-scale deployments.

Advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity planning

Upgrade to Veeam Availability Suite to combine Veeam Backup & Replication’s #1 VM Backup for VMware with the advanced monitoring, reporting, and capacity planning capabilities provided by Veeam ONE.

VMware Replication Features

New replication enhancements included in version 8

New replication enhancements in v8 help you avoid data loss and improve disaster recovery. Features such as WAN Acceleration improve offsite backup and recovery with up to 50x faster replication and up to 20x reduction in bandwidth consumption. You can also replicate from backup files without causing an impact on production.

Assisted failover and real failback

In the event of a failure, built-in orchestration enables 1-click site failover, as well as planned failover to facilitate data center migration with no data loss. You can choose to either failback to the production VM, a new location, or re-home a VM in the DR site.


SureReplica allows you to easily test every restore point in every VM replica for recoverability by validating data for consistency, checking replica configuration accuracy and testing it for reliability inside an isolated Virtual Lab.
* Currently available for VMware replication only

Offsite replication

Veeam makes vSphere replication over WAN or slow connections easy due to optimized traffic transmission and compressed replica traffic for improved replication performance.
