See my list of Veeam extensions here:
In order to use the predefined tests (Heartbeat, Ping, Application) for a VM you must have VMware tools or Hyper-V integration services installed on the VM. You can also run custom scripts.
Veeam explorers datasheet here:
If you plan on using ‘extreme compression’ Veeam recommends using a proxy that has at least 6 modern CPU cores.
New compression settings are applied at the next run of a job. New deduplication setting are applied after a new active full backup is created.
WAN accelerators must be installed on 64 bit Windows machines with a recommended minimum 8GB of RAM.
SureBackup recovery verification configurations: Basic (one network) and Advanced (two or more networks) single host virtual lab.
SureReplica recovery verification configurations: Single host basic (one network) and advanced (two or more networks) virtual lab. Also advanced (one or more networks, must reside in one datacenter) multi-host virtual lab. (SureReplica is only available with VMware)
Veeam supports these de-duplicating storage appliances: EMC Data Domain, ExaGrid, HPE StoreOnce.
The five benefits of Veeam are:
- High-Speed Recovery
- Data Loss Avoidance
- Verified Recoverability
- Leveraged Data
- Complete Visibility
