Data Protection

In this article

    To protect your VM instances, you must create backup policies. A backup policy is a collection of settings that define the way backup operations are performed: what data to back up, where backups must be stored, when the backup process must start and so on. For more information, see Creating Backup Policies.

    After policies are created, you can manage them in the following ways: edit, disable, remove, start and stop. For more information, see Managing Backup Policies.

    Additional Data Protection Options

    Using the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you can also add an additional layer of protection for your infrastructure by creating backup copy jobs and backup to tape jobs for VM instances.

    The backup copy jobs allow you to create and keep multiple instances of the same backed-up data in different locations. For more information, see Creating Backup Copy Jobs for VM Instances.

    The backup to tape jobs allow you to keep backups of VM instances on tape devices. For more information, see Copying VM Instance Backups to Tapes.
