Protect your data, and simplify your life with Veeam Backup & Replication.

Experience complete data protection with Veeam’s reliable and efficient backup and replication solution

Veeam Backup & Replication is a software solution for data protection and disaster recovery for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads. It allows users to back up and replicate data to ensure business continuity during a system failure, data loss, or other unexpected events. The Veeam Backup & Replication is a must-have, free solution that includes host-based backup and replication for VMware and Hyper-V. 

In addition, AHV is an agent-based backup solution for Windows and Linux workstations and servers, whether on physical machines or in the cloud. It has a vast feature set and is far more potent than its predecessor (Veeam Backup Free Edition) or any other free backup software on the market. It’s even more powerful than several other providers’ premium backup solutions. You can use the Community Edition for whatever purpose you desire, whether for your home lab or your critical line of business applications in case of IT budget constraints.

Significant benefits for no cost:

The ability to schedule backups without a PowerShell script is a fantastic feature missing from the previous free offering. In addition, users may now plan their jobs to execute automatically based on a predetermined schedule using the wizard.

RTOs (recovery time objectives):

Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition customers can employ VM replication to achieve low recovery time objectives (RTOs) for their most essential VMs. You can have an exact copy of the VM in a ready-to-start state with replication. In addition, you don’t require the backup server to start replicas, which is crucial in a site-wide disaster! Instead, use the hypervisor’s native administration panel to turn them on.

Application awareness: 

Another significant Veeam feature included in the Community Edition is application awareness, an essential technology for reliable backup of enterprise applications. An application-aware backup ensures that your data is consistent and takes application-specific procedures during the backup process to ensure that the entire computer restore follows the program vendor’s instructions. Veeam Explorers for Microsoft applications (Active Directory, Exchange, SQL Server, and SharePoint) also allow users to rapidly locate and recover particular program components, avoiding restoring the complete machine image to the most recent restoration point.

Users of the Community Edition can also centrally deploy and manage Veeam Agents for Microsoft Windows and Linux on any computer in their environment, whether a physical or virtual system. That eliminates needing individual Veeam Agents installed, configured, updated, and managed on each plan. Instead, you may quickly deploy the agents from the Community Edition backup console to the actual computers in your environment that you wish to protect (with a limit of 10 instances per workstation and three instances per server).

Monitoring and reporting for Veeam Backup & Replication:

Protected VMs report from the Veeam Backup & Replication report bundle can help you determine which VMs are protected and which aren’t. This report lists all VMs with backups within a particular recovery point objective (RPO) and displays which VMs do not have backups. You can even look into why some VMs aren’t protected. For example, if you provisioned a new VM but failed to include it in the backup process, Veeam ONE will detect this and notify you via the Protected VMs report.
