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
