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!

Ensuring data Availability in IT infrastructures spread across remote and branch offices (ROBOs) used to be a common challenge for enterprises. ROBO environments can include hundreds and thousands of sites distributed across different time zones. Often remote and branch offices run critical business workloads locally. The large number of sites in play combined with on-premises business applications create an Availability challenge for ROBOs.

The three pillars of the Modern Data Center — virtualization, modern storage and cloud technology — become the gateway to enhanced Availability for ROBOs. Companies with remote and branch offices don’t have to settle for less when it comes to their Availability requirements. By combining modern data center technologies with Veeam® Availability Suite™, enterprises can easily ensure Availability and enable their Always-On Business™.

This FREE white paper discusses how you can leverage Veeam Availability Suite to build an efficient Availability strategy for your remote and branch offices. You’ll learn how to balance the on-site and off-site data protection options for ROBOs, how to design a ROBO configuration from a Veeam perspective and how to use restore delegation features in Veeam Availability Suite.

Higher education is an industry that’s in a constant state of digital transformation. Even though educational institutions continue to face budget cuts, along with increasing statutory, regulatory and sub-regulatory requirements, customers, faculty members and investors continue to expect access to their data from anywhere, at any time and on every available device type. In addition, with new cybercrime threats, IT teams are often struggle to keep up and remain Always-On.

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

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.

Every day we are challenged to run our workloads with the resources at hand. The constant growth of data and the need to keep it available at all times is one of the bigger reasons why storage is a necessary and valuable asset. Veeam offers a flexible solution that allows you to use your available storage space as much as possible.

By using different techniques separately, all together they will allow you to maximize your investment in the available storage and let it be managed freely according to your needs at the moment.

If you have access to lots of storage but using it irrationally will lead to high costs, this document will go through all of the options within Veeam to optimize your storage usage.

As data keeps on growing everywhere, virtualization has established itself as the new standard for saving space, power consumption and cooling in data centers, along with the help of ever more powerful CPUs, allowing to reach better consolidation ratios and VM density on hypervisors.

However all of this data has to be backed up and depending on the desired retention, it can quickly require lots of storage space, which in turn translates into more room utilized by backup storage in data centers.

To address this in a cost-effective way, Veeam Availability Suite combines with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Apollo Server Series to help you build a powerful backup infrastructure with density-optimized backups targets
