Datanet has had great success backing up our customers’ Virtual Servers with Veeam® Cloud Connect. We are now very excited to announce that Veeam® has launched a new product called Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows which provides backup and recovery for physical workloads including:
- Desktops, laptops and tablets
- Physical servers running on-premises
- File-level backup to disk
So, what does this mean in real terms?
Well, now our customers will not only be able to backup their virtual servers via Veeam® Cloud Connect to our high-performance Dell EqualLogic storage directly, they will be able to backup all their physical workstations and servers too. If you are already using Veeam® Backup & Replication software you will be able to simply integrate the new Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows into your current configuration and start backing up your physical workloads in the same way using Veeam® Cloud Connect.
Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows is also designed to act as a standalone product so if you only have physical workloads to backup, you will be able to purchase Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows software (also available on subscription) then backup to Datanet’s high performance Dell EqualLogic storage via Veeam® Cloud Connect.
In much the same way as Veeam® Cloud Connect, after an initial full backup has completed, Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows can perform incremental backups (copying only new or changed data blocks since the last backup cycle)
Veeam® has also launched a Veeam® Agent for Linux which works in the same way as the Microsoft Windows version.
