With Veeam Cloud Connect, it’s easy to maintain complete visibility and control.

Role-based access control portal for VMware vSphere

Today, IT environments continue to grow in complexity and budgets remain tight. Because of this, IT is challenged with maintaining aggressive service level agreements (SLAs) for response times to maintain Availability and ensure that employee downtime and data loss are minimized. Veeam’s role-based access control (RBAC) portal helps reduce the total cost of ownership and promote high-speed recovery by establishing the most comprehensive internal self-service backup and restore functionality for VMware vSphere environments.

Veeam’s RBAC portal helps free up IT resources by:

  • Delegating roles and privileges to users to easily create, restore and monitor assigned backup jobs using a simplified Enterprise Manager that pre-defines permission scopes managed by IT
  • Reducing the labor associated with IT change requests by easily synching permissions made in existing third-party delegation systems to vSphere permissions to provide select individuals within the same permission scope access to vSphere VMs
  • Leveraging individual accounts or security groups to control the backup storage location and quotas, define backup job settings per account and control or limit job scheduling to maintain Availability

Built-in WAN Acceleration

Achieve higher Availability by copying backups off site to remote storage. Built-in WAN Acceleration lets you get VMware backups off site 50 times faster through the use of caching, variable block length data fingerprinting and TCP/IP protocol optimizations.


Veeam BitLooker™ helps solve the challenge of shrinking backup repository space, which normally leads to an increase in backup storage costs. BitLooker technology reduces backup file size and replication bandwidth usage by up to 20%. This allows you to exclude deleted file blocks and useless files from backups and save backup storage and bandwidth usage.

Scale-out Backup Repository

Veeam’s Scale-out Backup Repository simplifies backup job management and delivers efficient use of backup storage by adding an abstraction layer over individual storage devices. You can create a single virtual pool of backup storage and get the freedom to extend capacity by adding more storage devices to the pool when needed.

Enterprise scalability for ROBO deployments

For enterprises with large-scale VMware deployments, Veeam delivers the capability of keeping backup and restore activities local to remote sites, improves recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) and reduces WAN bandwidth consumption for remote offices and branch offices (ROBO). In addition, Veeam Backup & Replication is now available as a standalone console that users can install on their workstations for convenience, ease-of-use and the ability to eliminate Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) sessions to a backup server.

End-to-end encryption

Secure your VMware backups at the source, in-flight and at rest without negative impact on your WAN by using end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption. Be flexible; choose when and where to leverage encryption to best meet your business objectives.

Veeam Cloud Connect replication

Veeam Cloud Connect offers a built-in, affordable and secure cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) through a service provider of your choice. You no longer need to maintain your own secondary site to have reliable, image-based, VMware VM replicas off site. With no complex configurations, Veeam Cloud Connect allows you to failover an entire site or selected VMs from anywhere with just a few clicks. Traffic encryption securely protects all replicated data, both in-flight and on the side of the service provider.

Planned failover

Planned failover allows you to run your site migration or data-center maintenance smoothly with minimal operational impact. Planned failover shuts down the source VMware VM, replicates any changes to the target VM and starts the VM. With no data loss and very little downtime, you can perform your software upgrades and planned maintenance easily!

Real failback

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

Fast off-site replication

Veeam's built-in WAN Acceleration for replication makes vSphere replication over the WAN or slow connections up to 50 times faster while reducing bandwidth consumption by up to 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.

Assisted failover

Assisted failover featured by Veeam helps avoid data loss and achieve RPOs of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. If your production VMware VM fails, you can immediately failover to its ready-to-use replica and continue normal 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 can roll back to a previous valid restore point.

Failover plans

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


SureReplica technology helps you automatically test every restore point in every VMware 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, SureReplica is available for VMware replication only.

Replication from backups

Veeam Backup & Replication supports replication from your existing backups. By utilizing VM backups as a source for replication, you can remove any impact on your production environment. The entire process is fully automated and no specific configurations or job settings are required. Replication from VM backups saves significant time and reduces the read I/O on the running production VMware VM.
