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.
