How to Videos

The Veeam® How-To Video Series is designed to help users better understand Veeam products and how to use them most effectively when it comes to achieving comprehensive data protection for ALL workloads  virtual, physical and/or cloud-based.  

Want to know how to launch a specific Veeam function? How to make a certain type of restore? Or how to modify some settings? These 5 to 15-minute videos will give you a brief but technical deep dive into these and many other topics, as the videos are based on users’ most frequent and actual needs.

Topics range from Veeam Backup & Replication™ to solutions for protecting your Microsoft Office 365 data to cloud integrations to monitoring and reporting capabilities and much more.

  • Core Backup
  • Advanced Backup
What Backup type do you need?

Before you implement your backup plan, it's important to determine which level of backup you want to achieve: image-level, volume-level or file-level. Veeam provides solutions for all these levels of backup with its products: Veeam Backup & Replication for image-level backup, and Veeam Agents for Windows, Linux, IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris for volume-level or file-level backup.


How to perform Instant VM Recovery

The ability to recover data quickly is one of the most critical areas of a successful data protection plan and for business continuity. Veeam has a built-in functionality — Instant VM Recovery® — which helps to quickly recover data from a backup file within minutes.

In this quick demo, you can learn how to adjust and perform Instant VM Recovery with Veeam.


How to perform Full VM recovery

One of the most critical areas when it comes to successful backup implementation is the ability to recover data in a timely manner. Veeam provides their clients with the capability to perform a successful and quick Full VM recovery in a simple manner.

In this video, you will learn how to initiate a full VM restore, what options you have available for full VM restores and much more.


What is Data Replication?

Veeam has a built-in replication function, which does much more than just replicating backup data to another storage target. In fact, Veeam replication functionality takes a source workload and generates a fully functioning copy at a remote location.

In this video you will take a deep-dive into how Veeam exactly does replication and much more.


All you need to know about Transport Modes

There is a misconception that says that transport mode is somehow synonymous with the storage integration functionality. This is not true. In fact, transport mode deals with how Veeam does the reading and writing of data during backup and replication and other job types. Watch this video to explore pros and cons of different transport modes, how transport mode differs from storage integration and more.


Deduplication, Compression & Encryption — What's the difference?

When you plan your backup implementation, one of the questions that will come up is how much space do you need? Veeam has two built-in capabilities that help make the data stream more efficient in the form of compression and deduplication.

Watch this demo video to explore where to modify compression and deduplication settings, how to enable encryption and more.


What is quick backup? 

One of the most common questions from users is “what is quick backup?” What’s the difference between a traditional backup job and a replication job? Quick backup allows you to create an on-demand restore point on one or multiple virtual machines without the need to go in there, modify the job or create a new job.
Watch this demo video to learn how to do a quick backup job and to what the conditions are for realizing a quick backup.


How to perform Instant file-level recovery 

Instant file-level recovery is a great feature of Veeam Backup & Replication. It allows you to perform restores of files or folders from both VMware, Hyper-V or multiple guest OSs, without having to stage the backup itself.
In this demo, you can learn how to adjust and perform Instant file-level Recovery with Veeam.


Why shall you use Native Tape support?  

LTO tapes are still alive and here to stay for some time in the future. Native tape support for Veeam Availability Suite allows you to better deal with tapes and the functions that you may have for them going forward. Watch this demo to learn about 3 greatest functions of native tape support and how to:

  • Create a media vault
  • Set up GFS media pools
  • Set up parallel processing


Modernize your Data Center with Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV

Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV is an easy to use prism-like interface that gives you a possibility to look at snapshot jobs, do restores and recoveries, see job errors and more. Watch this video, which will walk you through the menu and interface, and get acquainted with all the functions and features of it.


What is VeeamZIP and when can you leverage it? 

VeeamZIP is a utility that is used to create full VM backups without any complexity or the need to pause a virtual machine. Today it’s a part of Veeam Community Edition, Standard Enterprise edition and Enterprise Plus edition.
Watch this video to understand the scenarios of where VeeamZIP can be used and to take a deep dive into the software to see how it works.


How to perform virtual disk and VM file restore 

Veeam provides various ways that enable users to restore data. They can essentially be classified in the three key levels: Image-level, Application item-level and File-level. But what if you don’t need to restore the entire VM and all the disks? What if you only need to restore a single drive within the VM like a data disk, like drive D? Fortunately for you, Veeam offers these granular choices.
Watch this video to know how you can leverage the V-disk restore and the supporting VM-file recovery too.


How will WAN Acceleration help your network? 

WAN Acceleration is a technology that is built within Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Plus edition. It enables you to optimize the data transfer going from the source side to the target side. Watch this video to know how to set up and configure WAN Acceleration and to learn the potential benefits from using it.


Tips and tricks on using Veeam Self-Service portal

The Veeam Self-Service portal is a tool that allows vSphere users to manage their delegated VMs protection, including VM restore and far restore. These operations do not require access to the Veeam backup management console. For backup and restore operations, users can access the self-service web portal.
Watch this video to learn how to launch the self-service portal, how to navigate within it and how to manage it.


Insights on adjusting Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository

Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository is a layer between the backup job and your repositories. It allows you to use multiple storage locations and view them as a single repository in the interface, which helps to reduce the complexity of job management. Watch this demo video to reveal the insights on how to adjust Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository.


Top reasons for using storage latency control

Veeam Backup & Replication has a built-in safety net called storage latency control, which is also known as storage IO control. It monitors the latency at the data-store level. Watch this video to know where to configure it, what options are available and why it’s so beneficial to enable it in all of your deployments.
