System Requirements

Veeam Backup & Replication provides different types of snapshot integrations and these integrations support different storage systems:

NOTE

[For VMware integration] You may encounter scenarios when Veeam Backup & Replication and the storage system support different versions of the virtual platform. In such cases, we recommend using versions supported by the storage system. If other versions are used, Veeam support will assist only with issues unrelated to version compatibility.

NAS integration is possible with the following built-in storage systems.
