Linux Server

You can add Linux server with local, directly attached storage or mounted NFS as a backup repository. The storage can be a local disk, directly attached disk-based storage (such as a USB hard drive), NFS share, or iSCSI/FC SAN LUN in case the server is connected into the SAN fabric.

Linux Backup Repository Deployment

To communicate with a Linux-based repository, Veeam Backup & Replication uses two Data Mover Services that are responsible for data processing and transfer:

  • Veeam Data Mover on the backup proxy
  • Veeam Data Mover on the Linux backup repository

Linux repository does not host the Veeam Data Mover permanently. When any task addresses a Linux repository, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys and starts the Veeam Data Mover on the backup repository.

The Data Mover Service establishes a connection with the source-side Data Mover Service on the backup proxy, enabling efficient data transfer over LAN or WAN.

Requirements for Linux Backup Repositories

A machine performing the role of a repository must meet the following requirements:

  • The role of the repository can be assigned to a Linux machine (physical or virtual).
  • You must add the machine to the Veeam Backup & Replication console as a managed server.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication uses the SSH protocol to communicate with Linux backup repositories and requires the SCP utility on Linux repositories. Make sure that the SSH daemon is properly configured and SCP utility is available on the Linux host.
