Planning a backup infrastructure deployment is more than just estimating the amount of required storage resources and bandwidth. Certain errors in your virtual infrastructure configuration can affect future backup performance or even result in failed backups and a lack of protection for your VMs.

Is your virtual infrastructure ready for backup? Read this white paper for a set of recommendations for assessing your virtual infrastructure readiness for Veeam® Backup & Replication™ and Veeam ONE™, both a part of Veeam Availability Suite™. With integrated visibility for both backup and virtual infrastructures, Veeam ONE fully addresses the challenges you face when designing a Veeam deployment and provides monitoring and reporting capabilities to prepare your infrastructure for backup.

Read the FREE white paper and you’ll also learn how to:

  • Detect misconfigurations in your virtual and backup infrastructures
  • Plan network and storage resources for Veeam backup
  • Ensure that your datastore performance is enough for backup processing
  • Use PowerShell scripts for backup automation
  • And much more!

Drastic changes in data center technologies and growing business demands dictate the need to transform data protection and disaster recovery. Traditional backup doesn't make sense within modern data centers that leverage virtualization, cloud and software-driven, scale-out storage. To enable Always-On™ operations, you need to make a shift from backup and recovery to Availability.

In this e-book, Mike Preston, IT pro and blogger, gives you a comprehensive guide to disaster recovery and data protection for modern data center environments that run on VMware vSphere and integrate with cloud infrastructures. You'll learn the drawbacks to backing up VMware environments with traditional tools and presents technologies that help companies to address the challenges of data growth and Always-On Availability for services.

Mike Preston proves that Availability software must leverage virtualization, storage and the cloud to their fullest while delivering advanced functionality for business continuity. In his VMware data protection e-book, Mike lists the imperative criteria of a modern Availability solution. He suggests Veeam Backup & Replication as an example of a true Availability solution, and explains how high-speed recovery, data loss avoidance, verified recoverability, leveraged data and complete visibility tied together enable applications and data Availability in VMware environments.

In this e-book, you'll learn about the components of a modern data center, and you will also see use cases for Veeam's value-add capabilities, including combining backup and replication for VMware disaster recovery and using replication for data center migration.

Read this FREE e-book to learn more about:

  • Creating application-consistent backups
  • Using modern snapshot methods
  • Choosing a backup storage
  • And more!

Microsoft has made it clear that the preferred way to manage Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 is with PowerShell. However, PowerShell management for Hyper-V tends to be non-intuitive and intimidating for beginners. Its usefulness is undeniable because it brings almost boundless possibilities for managing your Hyper-V directly through the underlying level of the OS.

With PowerShell management for Hyper-V, you can have access to all sorts of information about your environment by using this smart system of filtering that’s built right into the commands. And this access spans throughout your whole infrastructure: VMs, hosts and clusters.

Read this white paper by Microsoft’s MVP Brien Posey to understand this powerful tool and learn the basics of managing Hyper-V with PowerShell. Find out more about:

  • What’s changed since Hyper-V 2008 R2
  • Various queries against Hyper-V with PowerShell to create, manage and modify VMs
  • Techniques for allocating resources such as CPU cores, virtual network cards and memory to VMs
  • And much more!
