Most organizations today rely on virtualized IT infrastructures. Veeam® helps them to provide and increase availability of critical workloads running on their systems. Due to various factors, including complex hardware configurations and compliance regulations, some workloads cannot be virtualized, along with endpoints that might not be protectable in their entirety by leveraging back-up solutions built for virtualized systems. Thus, everyday occurrences such as lapses in connectivity, hardware failures, file corruption, ransomware or even theft can leave an organization’s data at risk.
Veeam Agents solve these issues by closing the gap that some enterprises face with large, heterogeneous environments and further enabling workload mobility by delivering availability for cloud-based workloads. Of course, Veeam Agents can also handle virtual machines and applications that do not support a hypervisor snapshot, or for any other reason cannot be protected on the virtualization layer.
This paper describes the main concepts behind Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, how agents can be managed centrally by integration into Veeam Backup & Replication, and more.
