Backing Up Physical Machines

To back up physical machines, Veeam Backup & Replication uses Veeam Agents: Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and Veeam Agent for Linux.

You do not need to install, set up and operate Veeam Agent on every machine whose data you want to protect. Instead, you can perform the whole set of deployment, administration, data protection and disaster recovery tasks on computers remotely from the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

How to back up physical machines

To back up physical machines using Veeam Backup & Replication, you must do the following:

  1. Create a protection group

When you create a protection group, you add individual machines or Active Directory containers to the protection group. Veeam Backup & Replication automatically installs agents and other required components on the machines included in the protection group.

  1. Create an Agent backup job

In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, create an agent job that will back up machines included in the protection group.
