About Veeam Backup & Replication
Veeam Backup & Replication is a comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery solution. With Veeam Backup & Replication, you can create image-level backups of virtual, physical and cloud machines and restore from them. Technology used in the product optimizes data transfer and resource consumption, which helps to minimize storage costs and the recovery time in case of a disaster.
Veeam Backup & Replication provides a centralized console for administering backup, restore and replication operations in all supported platforms (virtual, physical, cloud). Also, the console allows you to automate and schedule routine data protection operations and integrate with solutions for alerting and generating compliance reports.
The main advantages of having Veeam Backup & Replication deployed in the cloud AWS environment are:
- Disaster recovery (DR) in the cloud: Deploying a Veeam management server in AWS to restore from Veeam Cloud Tier copies into EC2 or VMC.
- Protection of EC2 instances, potentially alongside Veeam Backup for AWS3, for enhanced restore options and data mobility as well as potential application restore integrations.
- Protection of VMware cloud on AWS (VMC): Keeping the Veeam repository (and potentially also the management server) outside of VMC is an essential part of the 3-2-1 Rule.
