What is Veeam Backup and Replication?
Veeam Backup and Replication is any software capable of restoring and replicating data on virtual machines (VMs). Veeam was among the first vendors to come up with backup software customized for VMs. Before the launch of Veeam, backup applications failed to understand the difference between protecting virtual and physical machines.
Veeam Backup and Replication software is well-matched for a wide range of backup targets and works on the virtualization layer and is agentless. The software is said to have a recovery time objective of less than 15 minutes for various applications and employs inbuilt WAN acceleration to imitate data off-site up to 50 times faster than a raw data transfer.
Veeam has thus been built for the modern, virtualized world and there are several key reasons why Veeam is a good solution for backups.
- Office 365 Support
- VMware Cloud Director
- Easy to install and configure
- Support Latest Platforms
- Easy Backup and Replication and Restore
- Veeam Availability Orchestrator Support

- No need for a dedicated resource to manage backups.
Key Benefits of Veeam Backup and Replication
Installing a backup agent on each virtual machine is no longer needed because Veeam lowers costs through less software licensing, component acquisition, and bandwidth use. The administration is also simplified as Veeam follows a centralized managed approach that permits the administrator to control every single VM from a central point. By leveraging agent-based backup across your VMs, your business becomes less scalable, less flexible, and less agile which are vital components to a successful business in today’s modern world.
- Instant VM recovery
By using patented technology, Veeam eliminates the need for extracting the backup and copying it. You just have to start the virtual machine from backup. In case your VM goes down, you can restart it on any host. Depending on the method, complete recovery can take place in the background leaving no impact on your business or users.
- Save money
One important reason why a company should turn to Veeam software is direct cost savings. For instance, two out of three customers currently spend 35% less time handling their infrastructure and environments, so that they can focus their time on more important business matters.
- Built for the virtual world
Veeam not only tolerates virtual environments but also embraces it. This proves that Veeam was designed for virtualization.
Network Medics believes in Veeam over other backup and replication products because it provides the most easy-to-use, powerful, and affordable backup and availability solution. To further enhance your understanding, we present to you a few key differences between Veeam backup and other legacy backup and disaster recovery providers.
- Leading VM backup
Unlike legacy solutions retrofitted for virtualization, Veeam Backup and Replication was developed specifically for virtualization.
- RTOs of < 15 minutes
Veeam customers experience 96% of recoveries within their RTO SLAs, compared to only 78% for legacy solutions.
- Granular recovery
You can recover individual records, emails, or objects from any file system or virtualized application and firmly delegate file and VM restores to help desk personnel.
- Instant VM recovery
You can avoid the need for extracting the backup and copying it to production storage. You can just start the VM from the backup. Veeam Backup and Replication also prevents the need for pulling huge amounts of information from a public cloud backup provider.
Veeam Backup and Replication has an innovative, patented technology that operates a VM directly from a compressed and duplicated backup file on regular backup storage.
No need to deploy, purchase, or maintain agents on hosts or VMs. Functionalities like centralized management, replication, and deduplication are available as part of the solution, eradicating the need to license extra components.
