Scale your single Veeam Backup & Replication installation to protect thousands of servers and petabytes of data without adding complexity or compromising the performance of your backup jobs. Automatic Intelligent Load Balancing ensures high-performance backups within the Veeam Backup & Replication distributed architecture, while Backup I/O Control ensures that production workloads are not negatively impacted by backup jobs.
Off-site backup and recovery is a critical part of any disaster recovery (DR) plan. Improve your DR plan and avoid data loss with our powerful replication features available in Enterprise Plus editions of Veeam Availability Suite™, Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup Essentials™. Our replication features deliver:
Create image-based backups and replicas from storage snapshots as often as you need to — even during business hours — with little to no impact on your production environment. Veeam combines the best of both worlds, providing you with VMware vSphere snapshots for application-consistent backups and storage snapshots for low RPOs.
With Backup from Storage Snapshots you get:
Strengthen your disaster recovery strategy by copying your backups off site to remote storage. By utilizing caching, variable block length data fingerprinting and TCP/IP protocol optimizations, Built-in WAN Acceleration speeds up data transfer across the WAN up to 50x. Veeam’s Built-in WAN Acceleration does not require agents, special network setup requirements or the need to add bandwidth.
Get backups and replicas off site without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an off-site infrastructure. Veeam Cloud Connect provides a fully integrated, fast and secure way to backup, replicate and restore from the cloud.
Simply choose a service provider and point your VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V backups or replica jobs to the cloud. Cloud-based disaster recovery and off-site backup has never been so easy.
Now you can simplify backup job management and spend less on storage with Scale-out Backup Repository™. Veeam’s Scale-out Backup Repository provides an abstraction layer over individual storage devices to create a single virtual pool of backup storage to which to assign backups. It also offers the freedom to easily extend capacity, as needed, by simply adding additional storage devices to the pool.
This new feature delivers the following benefits:
Perform VMware backups faster and with reduced impact on your virtual environment by backing up directly from primary storage instead of retrieving VM data through the hosts. Direct Storage Access comes in two varieties, Direct SAN for Fibre Channel (FC) and iSCSI SAN, and Direct NFS Access for file-based (NFS) storage.
Meet your compliance requirements and lengthy archiving policies with native tape support. Archive multiple backup files to tape simultaneously to dramatically improve overall tape performance and increase retention, and save on tape consumption with built-in grandfather-father-son retention. You can archive entire VM backups or regular individual files to tape media and restore your data from tape when needed. Veeam Backup & Replication provides support for virtual tape libraries (VTLs), tape libraries and standalone drives and tracks on-tape files, VMs and restore points, and even support for tape devices without native Windows media changers.
Veeam’s BitLooker technology reduces backup file size and replication bandwidth usage by up to 20% or more, delivering lower backup storage costs and bandwidth usage.
The unique and advanced set of technologies included in BitLooker remove useless chunks of data that congest storage and network resources by excluding:
Veeam delivers powerful features designed for growing business environments without adding complexity, offering faster recovery times, added flexibility and scalability.
Veeam Backup & Replication is available as a standalone console that users can install on their workstations providing added convenience, ease-of-use, and forever eliminating RDP sessions to a backup server. Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) enhancements help growing enterprises improve backup and recovery times, while reducing WAN bandwidth consumption by keeping backup and restore activities local to remote sites.
Secure your backup data with end-to-end AES 256 encryption — at source (during backup), in-flight and at rest — all without any negative impact on built-in compression and WAN Acceleration. Even if the password is lost, you can still recover data from encrypted backup files without compromising security.
You also have flexibility over when and where you choose to leverage encryption. For example, you can leave local backups unencrypted for faster backup and restore performance, but encrypt backups that are copied to an off-site target or to tape. You can also protect different backups with different passwords, while actual encryption keys are generated randomly within each session for added security.
With Dell EMC Data Domain Boost you get source-side data deduplication, yielding faster, more efficient backups that enable lower RPO and lower exposure to data loss. The benefits of combining Veeam Backup & Replication with Dell EMC Data Domain Boost include:
With HPE StoreOnce Catalyst you get enhanced backup performance, reduced backup costs, and a simplified backup environment. Veeam and HPE StoreOnce Catalyst combine to deliver these benefits through the following:
Finally, thanks to this integration, you can expect general improved restore performance in all restore scenarios.
To decrease network traffic and disk space required for storing backup files, Veeam Backup & Replication includes compression and deduplication at no extra charge. Deduplication only transfers the data you need across the network. Veeam allows you to choose from four different options, based on VM size and type of backup target, so you can optimize backup size and job performance. Veeam also offers five levels of compression that allow you to find the right balance of storage consumption, job duration and backup proxy load — including dedupe-friendly compression designed for storage devices with built-in deduplication.
In addition to improvements for Dell EMC and HPE deduplication appliances, Veeam Backup & Replication now provides capabilities that will bring performance improvements to ANY deduplicating storage:
