This technical brief provides an overview of the disaster and data recovery solutions that Veeam® offers for VMware and Hyper-V environments and Veeam’s unique feature set.

As Federal agencies add all kinds of workloads — including their most important tier 1 applications — to their virtual environment, they’ll need high-end scalability, reliability and Availability to address 24x7 workload needs. Virtualization and many servers result in gigantic data volumes, and using the best tool to back up VMs is imperative. With features that set it apart in the VM backup market, Veeam Software offers the added value that is needed to enable Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™.

One highlight is Veeam’s ability to restore a server and its services to users in just two minutes, plus the time for the operating system to start — regardless of the VM size. This feature has been part of Veeam Backup & Replication™ for more than five years.

Specifically, this white paper:

  • Illustrates the challenges that big virtualization systems bring and how Veeam addresses those with market-unique features
  • Documents why VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V API-based backups are “not the same” across multiple backup vendors
  • Demonstrates why it’s important to enhance those APIs for better performance and virtualization support

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!
