Veeam Backup & Replication makes it easy to backup and restore virtual machines running on VMware vSphere or Hyper-V. Its 2-in-1 backup and replication provides the most comprehensive protection for your virtual infrastructure. With Veeam Backup & Replication you can deliver near continuous data protection, backup up to 5 times faster than native tools, restore files and data at a granular level and much more.
Backup Copy jobs
Best practices and common sense dictate keeping at least two copies of your backups, and new Backup Copy jobs let you implement proper backup and retention policies without requiring extra backups, copy scripts or capabilities like storage-based file replication. VM backups are automatically archived to the storage location of your choice, and validation and remediation make sure your copies are available and reliable.
Built-in WAN acceleration
Getting a copy of your backup offsite can be hard. Tapes are often difficult to manage, bandwidth is expensive and general purpose WAN accelerators are not workload-optimised. v7 overcomes these obstacles with built-in WAN acceleration. With caching, variable-length deduplication and optimisations for transferring Veeam backups across the WAN, it's up to 50x faster than a standard file copy and easy to use - there are no agents to install and no network setup.
Native tape support
v7 gives you more choices for archiving backups to disk, cloud and now tape. Support for virtual tape libraries (VTLs), tape libraries and standalone drives offers the flexibility you need to take advantage of the investment and policies you've already built around tape.
Backup from Storage Snapshots (VMware only)
With exclusive Veeam innovations, including the ability to leverage VMware Changed Block Tracking, you can create backups and replicas from storage snapshots as often as you like and whenever you like, from several times a day to once every 5 minutes, even during business hours. The result is near-CDP that doesn’t impact your production environment or running VMs.
Supports HP StoreVirtual VSA, HP StoreVirtual and HP StoreServ storage products.
Virtual Lab for Hyper-V
SureBackup eliminates risk by automatically verifying the recoverability of backups, U-AIR enables quick, agent-free recovery of objects from any virtualised application, and On-Demand Sandbox creates isolated environments for testing, troubleshooting and training. Requires Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V.
Enhanced support for VMware vCloud Director
Support for vCloud Director (vCD) goes deep with integrated visibility of the vCD infrastructure in the backup console. v7 also backs up metadata and attributes associated with vApps and VMs, and enables recovery of these items and fast-provisioned VMs directly back to vCD.
Virtual Lab for replicas (VMware only)
With new SureReplica, you can automatically verify every restore point in every replica. You can also put your standby replicas and DR infrastructure resources to work with U-AIR and On-Demand Sandbox.
VMware vSphere Web Client plug-in
Monitor your backup infrastructure directly from the vSphere Web Client, VMware¿s next-generation administrative interface for vSphere. The new plug-in delivers at-a-glance and detailed views of job status and backup resources, and also simplifies capacity planning and identification of unprotected VMs.
Self-service recovery of VMs and guest files
You can now restore VMs with enhanced 1-Click Restore, and powerful new delegation options let you safely put restore in the hands of business users, resulting in faster recovery times and decreased burden on IT staff.
Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint
Offering instant visibility, advanced search capabilities, and quick recovery of individual items, v7 disrupts the backup and recovery market for SharePoint. Built-in e-discovery and agentless recovery mean you don¿t have to spend time, effort and money on expensive add-on tools for granular recovery of SharePoint items.
Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange
Support for Microsoft Exchange 2013 is included in v7.
