Microsoft Azure cloud gives us today a lot of possibilities for running different services, which will rationalize companies. Mails, DBs, even linux operating systems can be run in Azure. Less popular feature is to copy Veeam backups to Azure and later restore it there as an Azure VM keeping all settings and features. Moreover, it doesn’t matter where such machines were originally running: VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, or are they backups of physical machines made by Veeam Endpoint Backup.

The procedure described in this whitepaper is based on completely free tools that are a part of Veeam portfolio. The only requirement is to have a Microsoft Azure subscription. These easy steps shows how you can use Microsoft Azure as a simple, disaster recovery center.

    In this whitepaper you will learn:

  • Preparation for the environment;;
  • How to send data to Microsoft Azure;;
  • How to restore the data as an Azure VM;;
  • And more!

The results are clear, this new Veeam-sponsored IDC white paper validated what Veeam customers have said for years: A combined Veeam and VMware environment is both symbiotic and beneficial for driving virtualization adoption. The study surveyed more than 1,200 Veeam customers worldwide and found:

  • Recovery time objectives (RTOs) using Veeam were more than 2x better in VMware environments without Veeam
  • The average RTO achieved when using Veeam routinely exceeded business SLAs
  • Recovery point objectives (RPOs) were 10x better with Veeam than with VMware alone
  • Veeam was a driver of increasing virtualization use by 75% of organizations surveyed

Learn how Veeam and VMware are better together in this IDC white paper.

Even though Microsoft Exchange Server and virtualization have both been around for a long time, Exchange virtualization is still highly debated. This is because best practices and recommendations for how to successfully virtualize Exchange from a hypervisor point-of-view do not necessarily match with those from Microsoft. As a result, administrators are often experience a void that leaves them wondering which approach is best.

In this white paper, the author tells you how to best virtualize Exchange, while also keeping track of your deployment’s supportability — regardless of the underlying platform. Although there are very good reasons not to virtualize here, it is important to remember that under the right conditions, Exchange is a perfect candidate for virtualization.

You’ll find out how to best virtualize Exchange 2016 from the application’s perspective, and read various recommendations and support statements, as well as why these recommendations are so important. Despite a potential for conflicting recommendations, there is ample room left for flexibility and so you can take advantage of the best features virtualization has to offer.

After reading this white paper, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand when and when not to virtualize
  • Correctly deploy a virtualized Exchange 2016 server, according to Microsoft's best practices
  • Understand how to protect data with Exchange's built-in capabilities and easily recover data using Veeam® Backup & Replication™.
