New Veeam® Backup & Replication™ 9.5 helps you achieve Hyper-Availability for ALL your virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads. With a single console, you can manage fast, flexible and reliable backup, recovery and replication of all your applications and data.
Veeam Backup & Replication is a software product developed by Veeam Software to back up, restore and replicate data on virtual machines (VMs). It was first released in 2008 and is part of the Veeam Availability Suite.
Veeam was among the first vendors to develop backup software tailored to VMs. Before Veeam, backup applications failed to recognize the difference between protecting physical and virtual machines.
Veeam Backup & Replication software is compatible with a variety of backup targets and can be used with VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. The product works on the virtualization layer layer and is agentless. According to the vendor, the software has a recovery time objective of less than 15 minutes for all applications and uses built-in WAN acceleration to replicate data off-site up to 50 times faster than a raw data transfer.
Backups are image-based, and can be created from snapshots on Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, NetApp and Nimble Storage arrays.
