Want fries with that hyper-converged infrastructure?

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.

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

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).
