Want fries with that hyper-converged infrastructure?

Posted by Andrew Lickly

Hyper-converged infrastructure environments are increasing in popularity for many reasons, especially for ROBO (Remote Office / Branch Office) environments. They are integrated software-defined systems that combine compute, network, storage and virtualization with a software layer that provides a single system of managed IT. Hyper-converged infrastructures are easy to deploy, manage and offer IT agility and flexibility as well as a decrease in operational costs and the resources needed to manage them.

Backup Copy Job – it can do more than just a copy!

Posted by Hannes Kasparick

Veeam's Backup Copy Job can provide more than its name suggests. The primary task of Backup Copy Job is to copy existing backup data to another disk system in order to restore it later or even to send backup data to an offsite location (see the 3-2-1 Rule).

Additionally, Backup Copy Job performs an integrity check of the backup data. Veeam saves a checksum for every data block in the backup file. Backup Copy Job verifies if the checksum fits and therefore, it can detect if the data has been changed (for example, to ensure there was no so-called “silent data corruption”, i.e. any overlooked errors).

Warning! New ransomware disguised as Windows Update screen

Posted by Mike Resseler

A few weeks ago, a new ransomware strain known as Fantom was identified. This ransomware is based on the open-source EDA2 ransomware project. Because Fantom uses a fake Windows Update screen, it has the potential to be a huge worldwide threat. A user can easily be tricked into believing that Windows is updating itself, when in reality, this particular ransomware is actually encrypting files in the background.

Veeam Cloud Connect Replication: More than just the cloud

Posted by Thomas Bartz

The Always-On Enterprise must ensure that its services comply with today’s new demands and challenges. Availability plays a central role here. In addition to common situations where a backup is needed (for example, when a user accidentally deletes data or a system cannot start after an update), more recent issues related to encryption-based Trojans also plague organizations today. While protecting backups against encryption-based Trojans was discussed earlier in this Veeam blog, many companies continue to look for solutions that deal, not only with backup protection, but also with disaster recovery (DR) scenarios.

Backup repositories: VMware backup best practices (Part 3)

Posted by Rick Vanover

I’m enjoying this series of blogs! This is a great way to share information about the best practices for the VMware backup experience. This post will now vary slightly from the other two and talk about the backup repository. This was another breakout session from Anton Gostev at VeeamON 2015 (those who attended were lucky to get the live experience) and will surely be a great one to catch in 2017 in New Orleans. This will be written in mind of Veeam Backup & Replication v9, but can be a starting point to making good changes in your environment.
