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
