    Storage Vendors can leverage the Universal Storage API SDK to build their own Storage Snapshot processing integration into Veeam Backup & Replication for VMware and physical Windows server (Backup from Storage Snapshot).
  • Veeam's own custom storage integrations for storage snapshot processing for VMware and physical Windows server (Backup from Storage Snapshot).
  • Veeam's own custom processing for Hyper-Converged Storage systems and hypervisor storage VM snapshot processing.
