Microsoft SharePoint is an invaluable tool used by organizations worldwide for data sharing and collaboration among teams. SharePoint provides businesses with a way to increase teamwork and productivity to streamline their processes and improve their business outcomes. There are several deployment options available for SharePoint, such as on-premises, online through Office 365 or a hybrid deployment. Each option has its own benefits, however, this blog post focuses on Veeam Explorer for SharePoint being used in an on premises deployment model of Microsoft SharePoint. If you’re using SharePoint online, Veeam Explorer is available to you as well through Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.
One of the most important components of Veeam Availability Orchestrator is the Failover Plan. The Failover Plan is an essential part of an organization’s disaster recovery plan. It contains the virtual machines to be protected, what steps to take during recovery, and other important information. Now, we are going to take a look at the step-by-step process to creating your disaster recovery plan with Veeam Availability Orchestrator.
If you haven’t come across the term “LAPS” before, you might wonder what it is. The acronym stands for the “Local Administrator Password Solution.” The idea behind LAPS is that it allows for a piece of software to generate a password for the local administrator and then store that password in plain text in an Active Directory (AD) attribute. In this guide, you'll learn how to deploy, configure and troubleshoot Microsoft LAPS.
Veeam and Huawei recently released new, integrated storage snapshot and orchestration capabilities for customers using Veeam and Huawei OceanStor storage. This new Veeam Plug-in is based on the Veeam Universal Storage API and allows Veeam solutions to deliver higher levels of backup and recovery efficiency when paired with the Huawei OceanStor storage infrastructure.
SysAdmin Day started (it can be traced to the year 2000) as a great way to give thanks to the professionals in the mix for the hard work that goes along with being a system administrator. Take this into context at the beginning of this century however. Things were harder then. There were more manual IT tasks, more equipment and less automation. This was an important time when the IT space was ripe for innovation, and platforms such as virtualization and the cloud were strictly a meteorological term.
In June 2017 we announced that we would be working on support for the Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) and shortly after in October we were able to show an alpha build of the code and demo what functionality would be arriving. Today we are excited and pleased to announce that our Hyper-Availability story is generally available for the entire Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform, allowing us to protect all virtualized workloads – VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV – in an application consistent state.
Microsoft Office 365 adoption is bigger than ever. When Veeam introduced Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 in November 2016, it became an immense success and Veeam has continued building on top of that. When we released version 1.5 in 2017, we added automation and scalability improvements which became a tremendous success for service providers and larger deployments. Today, Veeam is announcing v2 which takes our solution to a completely new level by adding support for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft OneDrive for Business.
When it comes to creating disaster recovery (DR) plans, Veeam Availability Orchestrator makes it easy to ensure data availability when disaster strikes. Beyond creating what we call a Failover Plan, we also ensure that our DR plans are tested successfully on a regular basis, with the documentation to prove it. Now, let's take a look at common terms we use when speaking about availability.
Long-term archival policies remain a consistent part of many enterprise infrastructures today. The need to maintain the 3-2-1 rule, ensure corporate standards, or provide regulatory compliance, keep liability of archival options out of the question. Convenient use of virtual tape libraries (VTL) enables enterprise businesses to extend their tape-based backups to virtual disks, or simply switch to newer operational methods without a long preparation as the staff is familiar with the terms already. While Veeam provides native tape support for backing up to virtual tape libraries, it’s now extending it with an option to leverage StarWind VTL for Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, enabling all users looking for cheap and reliable cloud storage to easily and securely store backups/files there.
