Veeam Explorer is an application that extends the functionality of Veeam Backup & Replication allowing you to view and recover application items from within the application VM backup or replica. You don’t have to install Veaam Explorer separately as it comes along with the Veeam Backup & Replication tool. The most popular applications supported by Veeam Explorer include Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SharePoint, SQL Server and Oracle.
With Veeam Explorers you do not need to fully restore and start the virtual machine that hosts the application server when performing item-level recovery. Instead, Veeam will mount the file system of the backed up application VM to the corresponding server, creating a mount point to it. Application databases are then detected and the corresponding Veeam Explorer displays their content in the navigation tree having the convenient hierarchical representation. Then a user can locate necessary items and restore them using desired scenarios depending on the situation.
