Achieve High Availability through a combination of Veeam Backup & Replication™ and the world’s leading storage providers. Create true backups and replicas from snapshots as often as you’d like — even during business hours.
Modernize and simplify the protection of unstructured file data at scale with powerful capabilities that bring flexibility to NAS data protection and recovery, greatly reducing storage costs while improving recovery times.
Easily federate your Windows, Linux and deduplication storage into logical backup repositories. Scale infinitely to the cloud. Select between higher-performance local targets or longer-term object storage in the Capacity Tier to meet your recovery and cost objectives.
Veeam provides customers with an ecosystem of industry-leading Alliance partners, allowing enterprises to unlock more value for their business. The VTAP ecosystem, including our Veeam Ready partners, provides a platform to address customer requirements for these primary use cases:
Traditionally, NAS data was protected by performing data dumps with NDMP, which was created in 1996 and reached end of development in 2010. Standard NDMP data protection operations are commonly limited to full backup and recovery and often have recovery location restrictions, even down to the model of NAS that can accept the recovery.
Veeam® NAS backup redefines data protection for the world of massive file data with flexible support for SMB, NFS, Windows and Linux file servers without the hassle or restrictions of NDMP backup and recovery.
Veeam provides a unique change file tracking engine that ensures fast incremental backups take place and that only the changes since the last backup are captured. In addition, this methodology provides understanding for what has changed since the last backup in an extremely fast and efficient way.
Not at all! Backups can be written on any storage that the parent system can see and has access to for writing data. While there are options for purpose-built backup appliances, they are not necessary, considering the wide array of virtualization and primary storage options available in today’s market.
It is, however, best practice to dedicate storage just for your backups and choose which storage works best for your recovery needs.
Solutions like the Scale-out Backup Repository™ from Veeam provide flexibility, which allows you to add any disparate storage to create logical extents for backup. Include cloud storage into the mix to take advantage of backup life cycle management from your on-premises high-performance storage all the way to archive in the cloud.
Storage systems of all types from many vendors on the market today possess the ability to create snapshots of their data. Snapshots minimize both the data traffic and the load required to create them compared to a backup. Commonly, a storage snapshot is a point-in-time image-level view of data. Like a photograph, it is a recording of what was where at that specific moment.
A storage snapshot does not consume any space by default when it is created. They are created instantly and ready to use within seconds. Storage snapshots are often commonly used to get recovery point objectives (RPOs) down to minutes.
Storage snapshots enable implementing short-term data protection with very low RPO and impact on your production system, which greatly complements classic data protection with a solution like Veeam Backup & Replication™. Veeam leverages storage snapshot operations from many vendors to orchestrate application-consistent snapshots, ensuring that applications and OS files are quiesced and ready for protection at the time of backup.
