VeeamZIP

    With Veeam Backup & Replication, you can quickly perform backup of one or several VMs with VeeamZIP.

    VeeamZIP is similar to a full VM backup. The VeeamZIP job always produces a full backup file (VBK) that acts as an independent restore point. You can store the backup file in a backup repository, in a local folder on the backup server or in a network share.

    When you perform backup with VeeamZIP, you do not have to configure a backup job and schedule it. Instead, you can start the backup process for selected VMs immediately. This type of a backup requires minimum settings — you should only select the backup destination, choose the necessary compression level and enable or disable encryption and application-aware processing if necessary.

    Backup files produced with VeeamZIP jobs are displayed in the Home view, under the Backups > Disk (VeeamZIP) node. To restore VM data from VeeamZIP backups, you can right-click it in the Home view and select the necessary restore option. You can also double-click the necessary VeeamZIP backup file on the machine where Veeam Backup & Replication is installed.

    Consider the following:

    • Veeam Backup & Replication does not enforce backup repository throttling rules during VeeamZIP jobs.
    • You cannot use a Veeam Cloud Connect repository as a target for VeeamZIP jobs.

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
