VeeamZIP for vCloud Director VMs

Veeam Backup Free Edition lets you create VeeamZIP files for separate vCloud Director VMs. When Veeam Backup Free Edition creates VeeamZIP files, it additionally captures vApp metadata. vApp metadata includes:

  • General information about the vApp where VMs reside, such as: vApp name, description, VM descriptions
  • Information about vApp networks and organization networks to which the vApp is connected
  • VMs startup options
  • User information
  • Lease
  • Quota
  • Storage template and so on

vApp metadata is stored together with the VM content in the VeeamZIP file. Capturing vApp metadata is extremely important for restore: without it, you will not be able to restore the VM back to vCloud Director.  

With Veeam Backup Free Edition, you can create VeeamZIP files for regular VMs and linked clone VMs.
