Existing tools aren’t doing the job

Traditional backup● Agent in each VM● Full VM recovery is complex● Expensive● Does not guarantee recoverability

Typical VMware backup● Backup code runs on ESX(i) hosts● Significant storage requirements● Limited recovery options● Does not guarantee recoverability

Page 6: Veeam backup and replication

Breakthrough technology

Publishes the backup as a regular VMDK file● Compressed, deduplicated, incremental

Runs a VM directly from the backup file● Runs on regular backup storage● Does not make any changes to the backup file

Automatically manages an isolated virtual lab● Workflow engine manages requests● Proxy appliance provides access into the isolated environment

“This is why I love Veeam. They take all the virtualization technology pieces on the table and put them together into a functioning business solution.”

– Brett WestoverIT Administrator

Recovery verification

Verify the recoverability of every backup● Every virtual machine● Every restore point

Does not affect backup windows orrequire additional hardware and staff

Check all

Check some

Verification Job

How it works

Veeam Backup Server

Fenced-off Environment


Page 11: Veeam backup and replication

Feature Benefit

Recovery verification Patent-pending Keep your job

10x faster: vSphere and vStorage (including Changed Block Tracking)

Complete backups on time,back up more frequently

Advanced VSS integration and application awareness

Recover critical Windows applications(Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL Server, etc.)

Direct SAN access Achieve higher consolidation ratios by removing load on production hosts and LAN

SmartDedupe™ Reduce storage requirements—without sacrificing tape support orcreating a single point of failure

Page 13: Veeam backup and replication

Instant VM recovery

Fast: Start VM directly from backup file

Readily available: Uses existing backups and backup storage

Buys you time: Users keep working while you troubleshootthe problem

Page 14: Veeam backup and replication

Storage vMotion (or Veeam Backup & Replication)

Page 15: Veeam backup and replication


No application-specific agents to license

No additional products to buy

No special backups to create

Supports ANY virtualized application

Durable—not tied to application internals

Supports administrator- and user-directed recovery● Wizards for administrator-directed item recovery from

Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory and SQL Server● User-directed item recovery from ANY application or database

Maintains separation of permissions between backup administrators and application owners

Page 19: Veeam backup and replication

On-demand sandbox

Instantly start a group of production VMs in sandbox

Restore from any point (full or incremental backup)

Run directly from the backup file, with backup file remaining untouched

Can be used for:● Troubleshooting● Testing workarounds● Patch testing● Development or test lab

Leverage the investment you’ve made in backups—put your backups to work

Page 20: Veeam backup and replication

Feature Benefit

Instant VM recovery Patent-pending Best RTO and highest SLA for every VM

U-AIR Patent-pending(universal application-item recovery) Fast and simple file and application-item

recovery, lower IT costs, no additional backupsInstant file-level recovery

for any file system Patent-pending

Instant indexing NEW! Comply with requirements to document backup of Windows guest files without increasing backup time

Guest file search NEW! Find and recover Windows guest files faster to enhance service delivery

On-demand sandbox Patent-pending

Eliminate the cost of a dedicated test lab and the overhead of extra VM snapshots

Page 23: Veeam backup and replication

Feature Benefit

2-in-1: backup and replication Save money, reduce complexity,satisfy changing RTOs and RPOs, realize additional benefits from virtualization

On-site replication High availability

Off-site replication IMPROVED! Disaster recovery

Fraction of the cost of traditional CDP

No need to buy an expensive specialized product or duplicate storage hardware

Selective replication(specific VM versus entire LUN)

Better performance, lower bandwidth usage

Support for WAN accelerators Replicate over slow WAN links


Page 24: Veeam backup and replication

Centralized management

Federation of backup servers forunlimited scalability

Consolidated alerting and reporting

Enterprise-wide VM and file searching

Automation via SDK
