When people think of Veeam, they often think of our flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication. The truth of the matter is Veeam Backup & Replication does a lot more than just backup and replication. Veeam also has a number of other products that can help customers solve their most challenging business problems.
Today I want to take a look at some common challenges information security professionals face and how Veeam can help.
In Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2, we have two types of Orchestration Plans. First, the Failover Plan we all know and love, which quickly brings your replicas online.
With the introduction of Restore Plans, you can now orchestrate restores from backups with ease. This is a game changer as it means orchestrated DR isn’t just for enterprises or the most mission-critical of VMs — it’s for all organizations, all applications and all data. Using the same, simple wizard, building a Restore Plan is quick and easy. Let’s take a walk through that process.
When I first started working with Veeam Software before becoming a Veeam Vanguard and joining the Veeam Product Strategy Team, one of the things that was so appealing is that it's so easy to get started with and use.
Before I knew it, I was backing up and restoring virtual machines with ease. Now, I want to take a closer look at what makes Veeam products so approachable.
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.
