Installing Veeam Agent for Mac via Microsoft Intune

Where has the time gone? It was in 2015 when Veeam jumped in to enable endpoint protection for Microsoft Windows. In 2016, we expanded agent support to include Linux, and in 2020, provided application consistency for MySQL and PostgreSQL via the Veeam Agent for Linux. Now with the release of Veeam Backup & Replication v11, Veeam enables protection for macOS with Veeam Agent for Mac! Read more

91 recovery scenarios with Veeam Backup & Replication v11

Like many of you out there, I’m a visual person. Whenever it comes down to some technical information, whether it’s a software function description or a company virtual architecture planning proposal, I can catch myself getting lost after a minute (only if I’m not presented with a nice scheme of said material). Given that, I’ve always been helping develop lots of Veeam-related illustrations, icons and presentations throughout my career here. Read more

Azure Files backup made easy!

It never ceases to amaze me how rapidly Microsoft Azure continues to bring capabilities to market, and the latest example of NFS 4.1 support for Azure Files is no exception. An NFS file share in Azure supplements existing file share capabilities with SMB shares. Having an NFS file share at face value may seem like adding another storage protocol, but it has much more impact than that. Read more

Working from home? How about free backup!

I’m generally a work-in-the-office type of person, however, if you’re working from home, it may be time to assess the need for endpoint backups. I’m convinced it is important, and I’ll explain why in this blog.

The reality is when working arrangements change, data creating and sharing change too. This is rather important when you consider we’re used to working in the office with presumably more direct access to central resources and peers. If this changes, we should think about backing things up.

How to enable rapid patch testing with backups and Veeam DataLabs

Unfortunately, bad patches are something everyone has experienced at one point or another. Just take the most recent example of the Microsoft Windows October 2018 Update that impacted both desktop and server versions of Windows. Unfortunately, this update resulted in missing files for impacted systems, and has temporarily been paused as Microsoft investigates.

Because of incidents like this, organizations are often seldom to quickly adopt patches. This is one of the reasons the WannaCry ransomware was so impactful. Unpatched systems introduce risk into environments, as new exploits for old problems are on the rise. In order to patch a system, organizations must first do two things, back up the systems to be patched, and perform patch testing.
