We are living in times when it’s hard to imagine our lives without technology. Our center of command is sitting in our pockets, and we are just a few taps away from booking a flight, checking our bank account or reading the news about our favorite football team. Our fast pace of life demands uninterrupted access to each application on any type of device from everywhere. Therefore, organizations need not only speed and versatility, they also need what we call Availability.
Here at Veeam, we understand how important your data is and how it can affect your organization if it’s unavailable. The link between IT systems and the success of each business, no matter the industry, is undoubtable. Unexpected disruptions come in many shapes and forms, from human error, to malicious attacks, to fire, floods or natural disasters. Having a strong Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plan can prove vital.

Having a clear picture of what VM snapshots and backups can do for you is critical when your data is at stake. To dispel any doubts, snapshots are NOT backups. They are two different processes designed to address different needs. Today, I’m going to explain the discrepancy between VM snapshots and backups and provide you with a few scenarios where each of them best fits.
While it is true that many Veeam products will use a snapshot as part of a backup — a snapshot by itself is not a backup. This logic applies to VMware VM snapshots, Hyper-V checkpoints and storage snapshots as well.
Monitoring data center performance is an essential part of every IT administrator’s job that shouldn’t be overlooked. There are many avenues you can go down when looking at a tool to help monitor performance, but with Veeam, you can do this with Veeam ONE. Veeam ONE has many capabilities, but one of the most important features is the alarm it triggers when part of your virtual environment isn’t working as it should. Pre-built alarms included in Veeam ONE keep IT administrators up-to-date on the operations and issues occurring in their environment in real-time.
This is the beginning of a series of blogs that will give you an in-depth how-to of the many new capabilities that are available in Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0.
If this is the first time you are hearing about our new product, I recommend you first review the following announcement blog post where I have previously provided an overview of the three editions of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and some of the new functionalities. In this blog post, we will take a deeper look at some of the top features this release brings.
The backup infrastructure is a primary target for attack because all relevant environment data is stored in that one single place. Second, if an attacker wants to destroy data, the backup environment is a good starting point because the backup server has access to pretty much every other important system, such as virtualization platform or storage systems.

System administrators don’t always get the appreciation they deserve, but today, we officially want to say thank you.
To celebrate this important day, we’ve prepared some cool assets for you, so keep reading!
