Linux Support in Veeam Backup & Replication

Andrew Zhelezko, Veeam Technical Marketing Engineer

Published: February, 2016

The Linux operating system (OS) family has entered the lives of both end users and businesses around the world. Many corporate servers, cloud systems, routers, tablets and smartphones run on Linux. In fact, Linux is installed on about 95% of the world's fastest supercomputers and about 60% of servers, which demonstrates its performance, flexibility, reliability and low total cost of ownership (TCO).

We’ve supported Linux environments since our first version of software at Veeam®, and it has only improved since. Currently, Veeam Backup & Replication™ uses and supports Linux operating systems extensively. Certain Veeam components use Linux as their operating systems, and Veeam can protect any Linux virtual machine (VM).

This white paper will shed more light on the integration between Veeam Backup & Replication and Linux. You’ll learn more about:

  • Using Linux systems as a backup repository for Veeam
  • Running Linux as a guest OS in your VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V VMs
  • Enhancements for new Veeam Backup & Replication v9, including Veeam Explorer™ for Oracle
