Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5

Backup

Veeam Backup & Replication produces image-level backups of VMs. It treats VMs as objects, not as a set of files. When you back up VMs, Veeam Backup & Replication copies a VM image as a whole, at a block level. Image-level backups can be used for different types of restore, including Instant VM Recovery, entire VM restore, VM file recovery, file-level recovery and so on.

The backup technology is typically used for VMs with lower RTOs. When the primary VM fails, you need some time to restore VM data from a compressed and deduplicated backup file.
