Overview of Veeam
3. About Veeam
Veeam Software develops innovative productsfor virtual infrastructure managementand data protection.
Reduce costs, mitigate risk, and fully realize the promise of virtualization with Veeam.
4. Agenda
Scale is needed for data protection of VMs
Things are easy for small virtual environments
Explain modes available and where they fit
Explain job types and where they fit
Explanation of why each of the top 5 are important
Interactive demos for select points
Questions and answers
Drawing and wrap-up
5. Veeam Backup & Replication
6. vPower
7. Scale and storage
Level-Set: One backup server may not be able do it all
Scale Friendly: Licensing permits multiple Veeam Backup & Replication Servers
Job and Type can be more important of a choice than criteria in-job.
Optimization option
Specifies a block-size for job algorithm
Local, LAN or WAN targets
8. Enterprise Manager
Rollup view of all jobs on multiple servers
Doesnt currently edit or create jobs
Virtual lab request workflow engine
Approve or deny portal
Guest file search features
Utilizes Microsoft Search Server
9. Modes
Virtual appliance
Host needs to have access to all of the shared storage (LUNS)
One or more Veeam Backup & Replication Server per cluster
Direct SAN
iSCSI Storage Easier to provision Veeam Backup & Replication Server to storage processor
FC Physical, direct attached to SAN
Offload processing from virtual infrastructure
Network mode
Only use if dedicated network available and storage access by Veeam Backup & Replication
10. Job type selection
Reversed incremental (retained for v4 jobs)
Most disk I/O intensive
General purpose to disk backups
Ready-to-restore options on disk
Incremental with synthetic full
Scale: VMs and jobs per Veeam Backup Server higher with this type
Optimized to move to tape as a whole
Transform backup chains
Option with incremental
Higher I/O requirement
5 TB or less per job iteration
Takes longer than synthetic full
Saves space
Important decision for scale
