Standalone and Managed Operations Modes

Depending on the available infrastructure, some Veeam Plug-ins can operate in either of two modes to optimize database protection. Based on the operation mode, Veeam Plug-ins have different functionality and limitations.

Standalone Mode

In this mode, you must manually install Veeam Plug-in that supports standalone mode directly on the computer whose databases you want to protect.

For Veeam Plug-ins operating in the standalone mode, data protection, disaster recovery and administration tasks are performed by the user on the computer with Veeam Plug-in installed.

You can use Veeam Plug-in operating in the standalone mode with Veeam Backup & Replication. In this scenario, you can use backup repositories managed by Veeam Backup & Replication as a target location for backups and use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to perform a number of tasks with backup jobs and backups.

Managed Mode

In this mode, you can automate management of Veeam Plug-ins on multiple computers in your infrastructure in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. You can configure application backup policies and perform other data protection and administration tasks on remote computers. To use Veeam Plug-in operating in the managed mode, you must install Veeam Backup & Replication on the Veeam backup server and deploy the Veeam Plug-in using the Veeam Backup & Replication console. To learn more about managed Veeam Plug-in deployment, see Computer Discovery and Veeam Plug-in Deployment.

For Veeam Plug-in managed by Veeam Backup & Replication, data protection, data restore and administration tasks are performed by a backup administrator in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. To learn about managed Veeam Plug-ins, see Veeam Plug-in Management.
