2-in-1: backup and replication™

Not only can you back up your virtual machines (VMs), but you can also perform image-based replication either on site for high Availability or off site for disaster recovery (DR). With Veeam’s 2-in-1: backup and replication for VMware vSphere, if a VM goes down, you can immediately fail over to a standby VM.

Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) enhancementsNEW also help growing enterprises improve backup and recovery times, while reducing WAN bandwidth consumption, by keeping backup and restore activities local to remote sites.

Direct Storage AccessENHANCED

Perform VMware backups faster and with reduced impact on your virtual environment by backing up directly from primary storage. Direct Storage Access comes in two varieties:

  • Direct SAN Access allows you to transport VM data directly from fibre channel and iSCSI storage over the SAN. Veeam Backup & Replication leverages VMware VADP to transfer the data over the SAN, allowing you to bypass the virtual environment which provides the fastest data transfer speed without producing a load on the production network
  • Direct NFS AccessNEW allows you to transport VM data directly from file-based (NFS) storage using Veeam’s proprietary NFS client, providing faster backups and with no impact on the virtual environment.
Read this blog to learn more about Direct NFS Access
End-to-end Encryption

Secure your VMware backups at the source, in-flight and at rest without negative impact on WAN Acceleration and compression using end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption. Even if you lose a password, you can still recover data from encrypted backups without compromising security. And it’s flexible — you can choose when and where to leverage encryption.

Native Tape SupportENHANCED

With Native Tape Support you can archive individual files or entire VM backups to tape and restore data from tape when needed. Advanced features include parallel processing between multiple tape drives to improve archiving performance, a global media pool to provide highly concurrent tape archiving and automatic failover from non-operation libraries, and native Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) retention to increase retention and save on tape consumption, plus more!

Veeam Cloud Connect Replication

Veeam Cloud Connect offers built-in, affordable and efficient cloud-based Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) for businesses of all sizes. You can send image-based virtual machine (VM) replicas off site to a trusted service provider without having to build and maintain a secondary site for your VM replicas. Veeam Cloud Connect makes advanced VM replication simple and allows you to failover an entire site or selected VMs from anywhere with just a few clicks. Traffic encryption securely protects all replicated data in flight and on the service-provider side. With no complex configurations, Veeam Cloud Connect enables a transparent, easy to set up and use DRaaS platform.

Assisted failover

Veeam’s replication helps avoid data loss and achieve extremely low recovery time and point objectives (RTPO) of <15 minutes for ALL applications and data. In the event of a failure, you can immediately failover to a ready-to-use VM replica and continue your operations running on a disaster recovery (DR) site until the issue is resolved. Veeam Backup & Replication maintains a configurable number of restore points for each VM replica. So, for example, if your latest replica point is corrupted due to a software malfunction, , you have the option to roll back to a previous valid restore point.

Planned failover

Planned failover allows you to run your site migration or data center maintenance smoothly with minimum impact on operations. Planned failover shuts down the source VM, replicates any changes to the target VM and starts the VM — all with no data loss and little downtime. Perform your software upgrades and planned maintenance smoothly and with minimal interruptions in operation!

Failover plans

Failover plans provide you with built-in orchestration enabling easy 1-click site failover. To maintain the Availability of interdependent applications, you can create a failover plan in advance for a group of replicated VMs arranged in the right order and initiate it when needed in just one click. Add VMs from replicas, arrange them in a boot order and set a delay for each VM so that they don’t start before a previous one starts up. It’s simple!

Real failback

Restore your normal operations after performing a failover in a few minutes by failing back to the original VM. During a failback operation, changes in replicas are automatically synchronized with the original VM, eliminating data loss. You can choose either to fail back to the production VM, to a new location or simply make the replica VM your new production VM.


SureReplica allows you to automatically test every restore point in every VM replica for recoverability. This technology validates data for consistency, checks replica configuration accuracy and tests it for reliability inside an isolated virtual lab.

* Currently available for VMware replication only
Fast off-site replication

Built-in WAN Acceleration from Veeam speeds up vSphere replication over the WAN or slow connections up to 50 times, while reducing bandwidth consumption 20 times, compared to copying raw data. Featuring replication from a backup and compressed replica traffic, Veeam Backup & Replication helps you improve replication performance and optimize replication traffic transmission.

Application-aware image processing

Veeam Backup & Replication supports application-aware image processing to help you overcome challenges with data consistency, especially when replicating critical VMs with applications like Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft SharePoint. You get reliable, transactionally consistent replicas without any unfinished database transactions or incomplete application files.
