    Veeam Backup for Red Hat Virtualization (Veeam Backup for RHV) is an additional component of Veeam Backup & Replication responsible for protection and disaster recovery tasks for Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) hosts. Veeam Backup for RHV integrates with Veeam Backup & Replication version 11a (starting from build 11.01.1261 and later) allowing you to back up RHV VMs to Veeam backup repositories.

    For integration with Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Backup for RHV uses agentless approach to back up RHV VMs and volume groups. The solution creates image-based backups of VMs at a specific point in time. Veeam Backup for RHV retrieves the VM data block by block, compresses, deduplicates it, and forwards it to a backup repository.

    With Veeam Backup for RHV, you can perform the following operations:

    • Create backups of RHV VMs and store them in Veeam Backup & Replication repositories.
    • Restore VMs from backups.
    • Restore VM disks from backups.
