Introducing Veeam Agent for Linux: 

Free Backup and Recovery Solution for Your Linux Systems

Veeam Agent for Linux is a powerful backup and recovery solution that helps you protect your Linux systems, whether running on physical servers, virtual machines, or in the cloud. With its user-friendly interface and advanced features, Veeam Agent for Linux makes creating and managing backups of your important data easy. One of the great things about Veeam Agent for Linux is that it is entirely free to use. That means you can protect your Linux systems without spending a penny on expensive backup software. 

With Veeam Agent for Linux, you can back up your entire system, including your operating system, applications, and data, and restore it quickly and easily during a disaster. Veeam Agent for Linux is easy to use, even if you have little experience with backup and recovery software. The user interface is intuitive and straightforward, and you can quickly create a backup job and start protecting your data.


With Veeam Agent for Linux, you can choose between two backup modes: 

standalone and managed. The standalone way is ideal for smaller environments with only a few Linux systems to protect. In standalone mode, you work the backup jobs directly on the Linux system you want to save. Conversely, the managed method is ideal for larger environments where you have multiple Linux systems to protect. In managed mode, you use Veeam Backup & Replication to manage your backups centrally, making monitoring and managing backups across your entire environment easy. 

Whether you choose the standalone or managed mode, Veeam Agent for Linux gives you a wide range of backup Linux options. For example, you can create a complete backup of your entire system, incremental backups that only backup changes made since the last backup, or differential backups that back up changes made since the previous full backup. In addition to traditional backup options, Veeam Agent for Linux also offers advanced backup features like file-level backup, which allows you to selectively back up individual files and folders, and granular restore, which will enable you to restore individual files and folders from a backup without having to restore the entire system.
