VMware Backup Features

2-in-1: backup and replication™

Not only can you backup your VMs, but you can also perform image-based replication either on-site for high availability or offsite for disaster recovery. 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

Get backups offsite 50x faster. Remove the hurdles to offsite storage with automated, agent-free backup copy jobs and built-in WAN acceleration.
Watch demo: Built-in WAN Acceleration

Backup from Storage Snapshots

Storage snapshots by themselves are not enough. In the event of a SAN failure, you will need true backups to restore from – and until now, there haven’t been any convenient, robust tools you could use to make backups using storage snapshots. Backup from Storage Snapshots gives you the opportunity to put your production storage capabilities to work and dramatically improve your recovery point objectives (RPOs) with no impact to your production VMs.
Watch demo: Backup from Storage Snapshots


With compression and deduplication included at no extra charge, you can manage the large volumes of data generated by image-based backups. 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 backups servers, edit jobs on any server, and search across all backups — all from a centralized location.
Watch demo: Enhanced Enterprise Manager

Back up to the cloud

Turn any public storage cloud into easy-to-use data repositories for your backups. Automatically copy your backups to Amazon, Azure or any one of 19 leading public clouds and add offsite archiving to your local recovery capabilities. Only available with Veeam Backup & Replication Cloud Edition.

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 the Veeam Backup Management Suite™ and get real-time monitoring of your backup infrastructure, identification of unprotected VMs, resource analysis, and more.

VMware Replication Features

Assisted failover and real failback

Failover to a VM replica immediately in case your production VM goes down, and choose either to failback to the production VM, to a new location or re-home a VM in the DR site.


SureReplica lets you automatically verify every restore point in every Veeam replica and makes your vSphere replication always reliable.
* Currently available for VMware replication only

Offsite replication

vSphere replication over WAN or slow connections is easy with Veeam Backup & Replication due to optimized traffic transmission and compressed replica traffic for improved replication performance.
