VeeamZIP

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

VeeamZIP is similar to 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 to a backup repository, to a local folder on the backup server or to 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 backup requires minimum settings — you should only select the backup destination, choose the necessary compression level and enable or disable application-aware processing if necessary.

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

VeeamZIP Important!
