vCloud Director Support
Veeam Backup & Replication provides support for vCloud Director. Veeam Backup & Replication uses vCloud Director API to back up vApps and VMs and restore them directly to the vCloud Director hierarchy.
The main entity with which Veeam Backup & Replication works during backup is a vApp. A vApp is a virtual system that contains one or more individual VMs along with parameters that define operational details — vApp metadata. When Veeam Backup & Replication performs backup of VMs, it captures not only data of VMs being a part of vApps, but also vApp metadata. As a result, you can restore vCloud Director objects back to the vCloud Director hierarchy and do not need to perform any additional actions on import and VM configuration.
