You probably heard about Windows Nano Server already … but what is it exactly, and how do you get started with it? What value will it bring to your environment?

Nano Server is a headless, 64-bit only deployment option for Windows Server 2016. Microsoft created this component specifically with key scenarios in mind: Nano Server was created to serve as cloud fabric and infrastructure (Hyper-V host, clustering, networking, storage) and as a deployment option for applications that are, as they call it, born in the cloud (Platform as a Service v2 and ASP.NET v5 applications).

Download this FREE white paper, All You Need To Know About Microsoft Nano Server by Veeam® Microsoft Evangelist Mike Resseler and learn all you need to get started with Windows Nano Server, including:

  • Deployment options
  • Remote management
  • Troubleshooting tips and tricks
  • And much more!

Business continuity is necessary for companies to operate 24.7.365, and it dictates the need to stay compliant with standards and regulations on data security management. For companies positioning themselves as Always-On Enterprises™, IT compliance is a certificate of trust, which guarantees their reliability and continuous business operations.

IT compliance is a hot topic today, as many IT departments struggle to meet regulation requirements and overcome challenges associated with documenting compliance. To present themselves as security compliant and resilient against threats, IT service providers and organizations follow the recommendations of international certifications, such as ISO 27000, which is a part of the Information Security Management Systems family.

An integral component of information security management is disaster recovery (DR) planning. In order to meet the compliance audit for DR planning, organizations must have a plan that includes information on the backed up data, backup recoverability, risk-oriented restores and the ability of IT to meet the defined RTO and RPO values, which is where Veeam® Availability Suite™ comes into play. Unifying backup and DR capabilities with monitoring, reporting and capacity planning for virtual and Veeam backup infrastructures helps companies stay compliant with internal and external IT regulations.

This white paper describes how Veeam can help customers meet IT compliance in the areas of backup and DR. You will learn how to master a reliable DR plan and achieve ISO 27000 compliance with Veeam Availability Suite, which provides:

  • Risk-oriented restores
  • Disaster recovery tests
  • Backup reporting
  • And more!

IT teams are under extreme pressure to improve backup, disaster recovery and data protection to eliminate downtime and facilitate digital transformation. Many IT leaders are embracing modern Availability solutions to implement the 3-2-1 data protection rule as a best practice. This paper describes how organizations can leverage the combination of storage snapshots, Availability software and hybrid cloud to cost-efficiently modernize data protection and recovery to enable the Always-On Enterprise™.

IT teams continue to embrace virtualization and flash storage to improve agility and maintain predictable performance across business-critical applications. In virtualized environments, however, Availability and recoverability are key issues that expose the limitations of legacy Availability solutions. This is especially true when all-flash storage arrays are introduced.

To meet the 24/7 Availability needs of today’s enterprise business, IT needs a new model. By adopting an innovative approach to Availability, organizations can dramatically improve backup and recovery times — all while maintaining VM (virtual machine) performance. Read this white paper to learn how.

The healthcare industry faces constant pressure today. While costs should be reduced, SLAs (service level agreements) must also be met. Moreover, consumers rely on private data, which means it is vital that it be kept safe and well-managed. The goal to digitize data and make it available 24/7 has become increasingly crucial today.

Read this new IDGE white paper to learn how healthcare organizations are digitally transforming their infrastructures, and find out which key guidelines they’re using to enable 24.7.365 Availability.

When deploying Tier-1 business applications, most administrators choose to go virtual for many reasons, including reducing hardware dependency, consolidating workloads, portability and the ability to improve application performance. Going virtual also means having the right recovery tools to let your critical business applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SharePoint and SQL Server be available 24/7 with no data loss.

An application-consistent backup tool is beneficial when it comes to applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server and Active Directory. These data sources can become quite large, and since they are critical to running an organization, they need to remain online when being backed up and in select restore situations. The data sources don’t necessarily need to be recovered in their entirety, and if fully restored, could potentially lead to downtime and data loss. Item-level recovery gives administrators the option to restore one or more items from the backup without going offline.

That is why for every admin, item-level recovery might be the first resort, instead of restoring the whole Tier-1 application workload which is very time consuming and in most cases unnecessary. To fulfill the Tier-1 recovery demand, Veeam® offers application-specific Explorers allowing you to restore individual items from applications in the form of their native database types.

Read this white paper to learn details on specific application workloads and how you can utilize Veeam to perform item-level recovery. You’ll also read about:

  • 47 restore scenarios Veeam provides
  • Methods for item-level restores for Tier-1 applications
  • Data loss avoidance
  • And more!
