Overview

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication lets you deploy and manage the following Veeam Agents on computers in your infrastructure:

    • Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows
    • Veeam Agent for Linux
    • Veeam Agent for IBM AIX
    • Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris
    • Veeam Agent for Mac

    You do not need to install, set up and operate Veeam Agent on every computer whose data you want to protect. Instead, you can perform the whole set of deployment, administration, data protection and disaster recovery tasks on Veeam Agent computers remotely from the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

    Veeam Backup & Replication offers the following Veeam Agent management capabilities:

    • Automated deployment and management of Veeam Agents. You can set up Veeam Backup & Replication to automatically discover computers that you want to protect with Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and Veeam Agent for Linux. You can also manually deploy all supported Veeam Agents on computers you want to protect. Once Veeam Agent is deployed on protected computers, you can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to administrate Veeam Agent on multiple computers.
    • Centralized configuration and management of Veeam Agent backup jobs on protected computers. You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to create and manage Veeam Agent backup jobs on computers in your infrastructure whose data you want to protect.
    • Centralized management of backups created by Veeam Agent backup jobs. If you choose to create Veeam Agent backups on a backup repository managed by the Veeam backup server, you can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to restore data from these backups.
