Backup Jobs

In this article

    Veeam Backup for RHV creates image-level backups of VMs. Veeam Backup for RHV retrieves VM data from the RHV host at a block level, compresses and deduplicates it, and then forwards it to a backup repository in the Veeam proprietary format. You can use image-level backups to restore VMs and VM files.

    Veeam Backup & Replication does not install agent software inside the VM guest OS to retrieve VM data. To back up VMs, it leverages RHV checkpont capabilities. Backup is a job-driven process. To perform a backup, you need to configure a backup job. Backup job is a configuration unit with which you can specify VMs that you want to back up, select a backup repository, define schedule and other backup settings.
