Veeam® Backup & Replication™ is a data protection and disaster recovery solution for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments of any size and complexity. Veeam Backup & Replication serves to solve the most critical problems of virtualized infrastructure management and protect mission-critical VMs from hardware and software failures.
The solution can operate in two functionality modes: full mode and free mode.
- When you run Veeam Backup & Replication in the full functionality mode, you get a commercial version of the product that provides access to all Veeam Backup & Replication capabilities.
- When you run Veeam Backup & Replication in the free functionality mode, you get a free version of the product, Veeam Backup Free Edition, that provides limited capabilities. You can back up single VMs (create VeeamZIP™ files), recover VM data from VeeamZIP files, storage snapshots, perform file copy operations, migrate VMs and work with tape media.
