Veeam Backup & Replication is built specifically for VMware vSphere to provide fast backup and recovery for ESX(i) virtual machines. Only Veeam Backup & Replication lets you recover an entire VM or an individual object from any application or file system—all from the same image-level backup. There are no agents to manage, no need to babysit backup jobs, and for the first time you can verify the recoverability of every backup.
It’s no wonder Veeam Backup & Replication v5 was chosen as “Best of Show” at VMworld 2010 and why more than 15,000 customers use Veeam to protect their mission-critical VMs.
Veeam Backup & Replication does more than just support your virtual environment: it leverages that environment to provide a whole new level of protection for your virtualized applications, services and data. We call it Virtualization-Powered Data Protection™—or vPower™ for short.
With vPower, you can meet your recovery time and recovery point objectives (RTOs and RPOs) for less: less time, effort, cost and risk.
2-in-1 Backup and Replication
Veeam Backup & Replication also provides image-based replication of VMs across local and wide area networks (LANs and WANs). It provides near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) for a fraction of the cost of traditional CDP. You can replicate on-site for high availability, or off-site for disaster recovery with JetStor iSCSI RAIDunits.
Hosts: • ESX 4.x and 3.x • ESXi 4.x and 3.x (including replication to ESXi)
Software: • vCenter Server 4.x (optional) • Virtual Center 2.x (optional)
Virtual Machines: • All operating systems supported by VMware • Any application • Any file system
vPower is Veeam's vision for data protection in the virtual world and the Veeam technology that makes that vision a reality. vPower leverages the virtual environment and Veeam innovation to take data protection to the next level and do things never before possible.
vPower eliminates the fundamental shortcomings of traditional backup to reduce the cost, ensure the reliability and increase the value of data protection and disaster recovery. vPower includes the ability to:
Publish a compressed and deduplicated backup as a regular VMDK file
Run a VM directly from a backup — without modifying the backup in any way
Automatically create an isolated environment for application-item recovery, recovery verification and testing/troubleshooting
You must be able to rely on your backups. That means ensuring backups complete on time, every time. It means properly quiescing applications before a hot backup. And it means verifying not just the integrity of the backup file, but your ability to recover from it. SureBackup provides 100% reliability with capabilities like:
Recovery verification patent-pending
Automatically verify the recoverability of EVERY backup, of EVERY virtual machine, EVERY time. Veeam Backup & Replication automates the recovery verification process, using available resources in your existing production or test environment. It creates a VM in an isolated environment and runs it directly from the backup file. It starts the VM, boots the OS and confirms that everything is running normally.
With Veeam Backup & Replication you can quickly restore exactly what you need...whether that's the entire VM, a particular VMDK file, or specific application or user data. InstantRestore capabilities include:
Instant VM Recovery patent-pending
Run a VM directly from a compressed and deduplicated backup file on regular backup storage. This eliminates the need to extract the backup and copy it to production storage — you simply start the VM from the backup. So if a VM goes down, you can restart it on any host in a matter of minutes. It's like having a "temporary spare" for your VMs.
Recover individual objects from any virtualized application, on any OS by running the application from a backup in an isolated environment. It's a brand-new solution to the age-old problem of what to do when users accidentally delete important emails or scripts incorrectly update records.
Instant File-Level Recovery (IFLR)
Quickly recover an individual file from a regular image-level backup. You can restore individual files in seconds from a backup or from a replica to the latest state or any point in time. IFLR is available for any virtualized file system.
With virtualization, you can implement near-continuous data protection for a fraction of the cost of traditional CDP. And you can further reduce costs with 2-in-1 backup and replication from Veeam.
5-minute RTO and RPO
Veeam Backup & Replication leverages the latest technological advancements in VMware vSphere 4 and vStorage — including Changed Block Tracking and thin-provisioned disks — to deliver unprecedented replication speed. You can capture changes and update VM images as often as every few minutes. If a VM goes down, you can immediately fail over to a ready-to-start replica. With Veeam, you can:
Replicate on-site for high availability, off-site for disaster recovery
Replicate and fail over individual VMs — a big improvement over traditional CDP
Roll back to a previous replica, thus providing protection against hardware and software failures
