Foundational Questions

What type of VMware backup does Veeam provide?

Veeam Backup & Replication is built for virtual environments. It operates at the virtualization layer and uses an image-based approach for VM backup.

Veeam Backup & Replication does not install agent software inside the VM guest OS to retrieve VM data. To back up VMs, it leverages VMware vSphere snapshot capabilities. When you back up a VM, Veeam Backup & Replication requests VMware vSphere to create a VM snapshot. The VM snapshot can be thought of as a cohesive point-in-time copy of a VM including its configuration, OS, applications, associated data, system state and so on. Veeam Backup & Replication uses this point-in-time copy as a source of data for backup.

What type of VMware restore does Veeam provide?

Veeam Backup & Replication offers a number of recovery options for various disaster recovery scenarios:

  • Instant VM Recovery enables you to instantly start a VM directly from a backup file.
  • Instant VM Disk Recovery enables you to instantly restore a VM disk from a backup file.
  • Entire VM recovery enables you to recover a VM from a backup file to its original or another location.
  • VM files restore enables you to recover separate VM files (virtual disks, configuration files and so on).
  • Virtual disks restore enables you to recover a specific hard drive of a VM from the backup file, and attach it to the original VM or to a new VM.
  • Guest OS File Recovery enables you to recover individual guest OS files from Windows, Linux, Mac and other guest OS file systems.
What type of VMware replication does Veeam provide?
Veeam Backup & Replication lets you perform onsite replication for high availability (HA) scenarios and remote (offsite) replication for disaster recovery (DR) scenarios. To facilitate replication over the WAN or slow connections, Veeam Backup & Replication optimizes traffic transmission. It filters out unnecessary data blocks such as duplicate data blocks, zero data blocks, blocks of swap files and blocks of excluded VM guest OS files, and compresses replica traffic. Veeam Backup & Replication also allows you to use WAN accelerators and apply network throttling rules to prevent replication jobs from consuming the entire network bandwidth.
Does Veeam provide backup solution for VMware machines, deployed in a small business environment?
Veeam has been built for virtual environment and designed to fully support VMware also in a small business environment. Veeam backup for VMware vSphere allows you to backup on schedule and recover any data you need to recover, without the need to babysit your virtual backup.
