2-in-1: backup and replication™

Not only can you back up your virtual machines (VMs), but you can also perform image-based replication either on site for high Availability or off site for disaster recovery (DR). With Veeam’s 2-in-1: backup and replication for VMware vSphere, if a VM goes down, you can immediately fail over to a standby VM.

Backup from Storage SnapshotsENHANCED

Backup from Storage Snapshots gives you the ability to back up VMware VMs from EMCNEW, HPE, and NetApp storage snapshots up to 50x faster. Veeam allows you to create image-based backups and replicas from storage snapshots as often as necessary, even during business hours, with little to no impact to your production environment.

Veeam Cloud Connect BackupENHANCED

Veeam Cloud Connect helps users avoid the risk of catastrophic data loss through hosted backup repositories. It’s the easy, efficient way to get backups off site. You can send off-site backups through an SSL connection to a service provider and maintain complete visibility and control. Easily access and recover hosted data directly from your backup console. You can also leverage Built-in WAN Acceleration, Backup Copy jobs and forever incremental backups.

Deduplicating storage integrations

Veeam offers additional high-performance backup features for any deduplication appliance. Customers can get up to 10x faster backup performance with the new per-VM backup file chains option, which enables multiple write streams by leveraging parallel VM processing. Users can also improve local backup copy performance and reduce the load on deduplication appliances by eliminating data rehydration with new support for active full backups with backup copy jobs.

With compression and deduplication included at no extra charge, you can manage the large volumes of data generated by image-based backups. You will reduce backup storage consumption and the amount of data sent over the network. Combined with bandwidth throttling and scheduling capabilities, Veeam extends the protection of your VMware vSphere environment to an offsite location or into the cloud.

Built-in WAN Acceleration

Increase the reliability of your Availability solution by copying backups off site to remote storage. With built-in WAN Acceleration, you can get backups off site 50x faster by utilizing caching, variable block length data fingerprinting and TCP/IP protocol optimizations.

HPE StoreOnce CatalystENHANCED

Support for HPE StoreOnce CatalystNEW for HPE StoreOnce Backup deduplication systems, provides superior source-side data deduplication to enhance backup performance, reduce backup costs and simplify backup environments.

EMC Data Domain BoostENHANCED

EMC Data Domain Boost provides source-side data deduplication and data in-flight encryptionNEW over the WAN, yielding faster and more efficient backups that enable lower RPO.

EMC Data Domain Boost will also allow you to experience:

  • Up to 50% faster backup performance
  • Short backup windows with 10x faster synthetic full backup file creation and transformation
  • Fibre Channel connectivity enabling LAN-free backup to Data Domain

Scale-out Backup Repository

Veeam’s Scale-out Backup Repository™ simplifies backup job management and delivers more efficient use of backup storage by providing an abstraction layer over individual storage devices. This creates a single virtual pool of backup storage and offers users the freedom to easily extend capacity by simply adding more storage devices to the pool. Scale-out Backup Repository allows you to:

  • Leverage your storage investments
  • Simplify backup job management
  • Improve backup performance
Enterprise scalability for Remote Office/Branch Office deploymentsENHANCED

Veeam delivers powerful features designed for enterprises with large scale deployments. Veeam Backup & Replication is available as a standalone consoleNEW that users can install on their workstations, providing added convenience, ease-of-use and the ability to eliminate RDP sessions to a backup server. Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) enhancementsNEW also help growing enterprises improve backup and recovery times, while reducing WAN bandwidth consumption, by keeping backup and restore activities local to remote sites.

Direct Storage AccessENHANCED

Perform VMware backups faster and with reduced impact on your virtual environment by backing up directly from primary storage. Direct Storage Access comes in two varieties:

  • Direct SAN Access allows you to transport VM data directly from fibre channel and iSCSI storage over the SAN. Veeam Backup & Replication leverages VMware VADP to transfer the data over the SAN, allowing you to bypass the virtual environment which provides the fastest data transfer speed without producing a load on the production network
  • Direct NFS AccessNEW allows you to transport VM data directly from file-based (NFS) storage using Veeam’s proprietary NFS client, providing faster backups and with no impact on the virtual environment.

End-to-end Encryption

Secure your VMware backups at the source, in-flight and at rest without negative impact on WAN Acceleration and compression using end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption. Even if you lose a password, you can still recover data from encrypted backups without compromising security. And it’s flexible — you can choose when and where to leverage encryption.

Native Tape SupportENHANCED

With Native Tape Support you can archive individual files or entire VM backups to tape and restore data from tape when needed. Advanced features include parallel processing between multiple tape drives to improve archiving performance, a global media pool to provide highly concurrent tape archiving and automatic failover from non-operation libraries, and native Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) retention to increase retention and save on tape consumption, plus more!

Centralized management

Monitor jobs across multiple backup servers, edit jobs on any server and search across all backups — all from a centralized location using a web-based console.


There are no agents for you to license, deploy, manage or monitor on ESXi hosts or VMs.
