Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Evaluator's Guide for VMware vSphere

Distributed Backup Infrastructure Management

For large geographically dispersed virtual environments with multiple Veeam backup servers, it is recommended to use Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager is an optional component in the backup infrastructure that federates Veeam backup servers and offers a consolidated view of these servers through a web console. You can centrally control and manage jobs configured on different Veeam backup servers through a single pane of glass, edit and clone jobs, monitor jobs state and get reporting data across all backup servers. Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager also enables you to search for Windows guest OS files in all current and archived backups across your backup infrastructure and restore these files in 1 click.

This section describes a set of exercises that you should perform to learn how to manage a distributed backup infrastructure using Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.
