Get centralized, off-site backup and replication with Veeam Cloud Connect for the Enterprise

Posted by Clint Wyckoff

It’s a problem that’s continuing to plague organizations around the globe. For example, a large global organization was faced with recent outages of their end-user-facing, retail-sales application costing the company thousands of dollars. A mandate from the CIO placed the IT team in a position where they HAD to figure out how to centrally protect the applications and services at their remote office/branch offices (ROBOs), as well as their headquarters (HQ) datacenter.

It’s unfortunate, but this challenge is becoming more and more commonplace in the today’s virtualized datacenter. Senior executives are now demanding centralized, off-site backup AND replication of their many remote offices and datacenters to the HQ datacenter, or in some cases, to the public cloud.

Posted by Mike Resseler

In the previous post we discussed what the Microsoft Operations Manager Suite (OMS) is and how it can be used as a powerful extension for your Operations Manager solution on-premises. We already showed you how to connect them together and how to make sure that data from your Veeam Management Pack is being streamed to the OMS solution. Today we are going to look at alerts and use OMS to create some custom queries, use custom fields and experiment with the preview of PowerBI to create stunning visualization dashboards.

Veeam Management Pack data in Microsoft Operations Manager Suite (Part 1)

Posted by Mike Resseler

If you are a System Center Operations Manager (OpsMgr) user, you must have heard already about the Microsoft Operations Manager Suite (OMS). Whether you are at an event, watching a webinar or reading online about this solution, the most asked question we get around OMS is whether you should keep investing in OpsMgr or start moving to OMS. Before I get to that point, let’s have a look at what OMS exactly is.

Leveraging Active Directory Recycle Bin: Best practices for AD protection (Part 4)

Posted by Andrew Zhelezko

This post is part four of a series where I discuss granular recovery of Active Directory objects and different scenarios and tools for such operations.

In the previous article, I described the cases where administrators worked with Domain Controllers running Active Directory off a functional level of Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. I detailed the steps they had to do in order to reanimate the tombstone objects using LDP and Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory utilities.

Today, I’m moving on to newer systems with the Active Directory recycle bin feature enabled.

In the lead up to Cisco Live in Las Vegas, I was reviewing my schedule when I realized just how deep the relationship between Veeam and Cisco has become.

So many things are happening on so many different fronts, it’s really quite impressive especially given the current age of “coopetition”. In Cisco, Veeam truly has a joint partner on so many levels.

Let me recap some of the good things with Cisco and Veeam together.

Veeam Agent for Linux Beta, Part 4: Working from the command line
