#1 Backup and Recovery for Microsoft Windows Server

Due to various factors, including complex hardware configurations and regulatory compliance requirements, some physical servers and workstations cannot be virtualized. And everyday occurrences such as lapses in connectivity, hardware failures, file corruption — even ransomware or theft — can leave an organization’s data at risk.

NEW Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows — a key component of the Veeam Availability Platform™ — is a comprehensive solution to backup and restore Windows-based workstations, physical servers and cloud instances that allows enterprises of any size to protect their environment from a single management console and minimize interruptions to their business.

Back up and restore Windows-based workloads with ease

Protect Any Non-virtualized Workloads

Your environment is diverse. While you may be mostly virtualized, most organizations have hybrid environments that contain physical servers (Windows, Linux, IBM AIX or Oracle Solaris) or cloud instances that cannot be virtualized. With Veeam Agents, you can manage your workloads from a single management console and maintain low RTOs and RPOs, while reducing interruptions to your business.

Physical and cloud-based Windows workloads

  • Synthetic full backups: Eliminate the need for a periodic full Windows Server backup by creating forever-incremental backups that save time and storage
  • Application-aware processing1: Create application-consistent backups with advanced application-aware processing (including transaction log truncation)
  • Application-item recovery2: Use Veeam Explorers™ for Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server and Oracle to restore application items directly from backup files
  • Instant recovery to Microsoft Hyper-V VM2: Quickly restore service to users by starting a VM directly from an agent backup file
  • Network management: Ensure successful backups by restricting network usage for VPN or metered connections

Mobile endpoints

  • USB backup: Incrementally back up USB hard drives to ensure your workstations and their critical data are protected
  • CryptoLocker protection for USB devices: Protect backup files residing on USB-based backup storage from potential CryptoLocker-type threats by automatically ejecting the backup storage immediately after a successful backup is completed
  • Endpoint protection for mobile users: Back up to a local cache when the target is not available and sync with your cached backups once the connection has been re-established
  • Daily schedule and backup events: Protect laptops and desktops daily or based on user activity via backup events

Built on Proven Veeam Technologies

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows Server edition adds the same proven guest processing engine found in Veeam Backup & Replication™, which helps bring the power and flexibility you need to ensure Availability for your physical Windows servers and workstations through:
  • Changed Block Tracking (CBT) driver1: Improve backup performance and decrease the backup window for server workloads, in comparison to existing driver-less change tracking, to meet more stringent business requirements for mission-critical applications and high transactional workloads
  • Multiple jobs support functionality: Save time and resources by simultaneously managing multiple backup jobs
  • Server-specific scheduling and retention1: Advanced scheduling options and server-based retention logic to protect most critical server applications, including Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, Oracle and file servers
  • File indexing and search1,2: A catalog of files enables effortless search of individual files, so you can find and restore a file without knowing its precise location or when it was deleted
  • Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication: Take full advantage of Veeam backup repositories as target locations for your Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows backup jobs
  • Transaction log backup for databases1: Achieve low RPOs for Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle databases

Leverage the hybrid cloud

While more and more organizations are hosting workloads and backups data in the public cloud — including hyperscale public clouds like Microsoft Azure and AWS — there is still a need for a Windows server backup and recovery tool that easily integrates with multiple cloud offerings, has the power and features you need and is easy to use and fits within your budget.

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows delivers on all of these with:
