Veeam Announces Back Up and Replication Support for Linux Machines

If you are a systems administrator and you are tasked with ensuring your systems have a backup and replication process, Veeam is likely in your arsenal of tools.
One of the biggest frustrations Veeam administrators encounter is the process of backing up, replicating and recovering a Linux virtual machine.
With Veeam, administrators can backup and replicate their virtual machines either on-premises or in the cloud. With never versions of Veeam, organizations can also use Veeam to perform tape backups which give businesses another location for their data backups.
“Backing up and recovering Linux servers is often a complicated and costly process, frequently needing manual intervention or consuming too much of an IT administrator’s time,” mentions Doug Hazelman, a Vice President of Product Strategy with Veeam.
“Moreover, as hybrid cloud increasingly becomes the industry standard and more enterprises look to run more workloads in the public cloud, it is important to ensure these public cloud server instances are backed up and can be recovered easily and quickly in order to ensure availability and avoid business disruption,” Hazelman concluded.
Veeam’s Support for Linux works by giving administrators the ability to deploy an agent. Once the agent is configured, the backup and recovery of your Linux virtual servers just became that much easier to accomplish. Veeam administrators can change settings on the backup and replication process from the Veeam console once the agent is connected.
Veeam says that beta versions will be available for users to evaluate. Many of these beta testing versions are limited so get your copy while they are still available.
The VeeamON conference just wrapped up in Las Vegas, NV. Over the course of the conference, several executives from Veeam and Veeam’s partners were asked to speak.
Veeam took the opportunity to announce additional backup and replication support for the Linux platform. Veeam also spoke at length about hot topics in IT such as cyber attacks, best practices for backups and more.
