How Veeam Backup and Replication Works with Lyve Cloud
Veeam backup technology syncs with Seagate Lyve Cloud to increase scalability, affordability, and security.
What is Veeam Backup & Replication?
Veeam Backup & Replication is a suite of tools that provide modern data protection and disaster recovery, offering:
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to create image-level backups of virtual, physical, and cloud data, and also to restore them. You can do all this on a single platform with one portable license for all workloads.
Veeam Backup & Replication optimizes data transfer and resource consumption, allowing you to restore quickly and with minimal storage costs.
You can use Veeam Backup & Replication’s centralized console to administer backup, restore, and replication operations. It also allows you to automate and schedule data protection operations.
What Are the Functions of Veeam Backup and Replication?
Veeam Backup & Replication provides a variety of ways to backup and restore data. Let’s look at the main functions performed by Veeam Backup & Replication.
What Can You Back Up and Restore Using Veeam Backup & Replication?
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to restore the following objects:
How Do Seagate and Veeam Work Together to Back Data Up?
By itself, Veeam backup technology has data limitations (only 0.5GB per block), which can dramatically increase costs if you are storing significant amounts of data or scaling as an enterprise operation. Veeam’s suite of backup and replication technology reduces the complexity of backing up vital data while Seagate Lyve Cloud offers greater scalability at a low cost alongside enhanced security features such as ransomware protection, multifactor authentication, and object immutability.
When combined, Seagate and Veeam offer an efficient disaster recovery solution for enterprises. Seagate follows global compliance to ensure data remains in line with international data privacy standards while keeping data readily accessible for recovery and business continuity.
Together, Seagate Lyve Cloud and Veeam Backup & Replication can save from 25%–80% of total spend on data storage and recovery within the first year.
How To Use Veeam Backup & Replication
How to Backup Using Veeam
To back up virtual machines using Veeam, you must first configure a backup job. The backup job determines how, where, and when to back up VM data. One job can be used to process one or more virtual machines. Jobs can be run manually or scheduled to run automatically at specific times.
To create a new backup task, use the New Backup Task Wizard. Specify the name and description of the job and select the virtual machine for which you want to backup. You can also exclude some objects from the backup, choose the order of the backup VMs, and specify additional settings. Finally, decide on a work schedule.
How to Configure Veeam Backup
You can configure Veeam Backup & Replication to automatically backup according to a schedule.
To schedule a configuration backup:
How to Move Veeam Backup Files to New Repository
To move the backup files to the new repository, copy them manually to the new repository. You need to include the metadata file (.vbm), full backup files (.vbk), and any additional files (.vib or .vrb).
Then, rescan the new repository and edit the backup task to list the new repository. If the backup job lists the new repository, then the mapping is complete.
How to restore a Veeam Backup
To restore the entire virtual machine to its original location, follow these steps:
In the inventory panel, select the Backups > Disk node. Deploy a backup job to the workspace, right-click on a virtual machine in the backup job, and select Restore Entire Virtual Machine to start the Full Restore Virtual Machine wizard.
Then, select the virtual machine and the restore point.
Veeam Backup & Replication will get the data blocks needed to roll back the VM to an earlier point in time and restore only those data blocks from the backup.
When secure recovery is enabled, Veeam Backup & Replication uses antivirus software to scan machine data before restoring the machine to production.
How to Restore Veeam Backup to Another Host
If you want to move Veeam Backup & Replication to another server, follow these steps:
Use Seagate Lyve Cloud with Veeam Backup & Replication and enjoy the benefits of efficiently storing, managing, and securing large amounts of data.
