Veeam verifies virtual machine recovery

Enhanced software tests recoverability of image level backups

Veeam Software this week expanded the capabilities of it Veeam Backup & Replication data protection package with the ability to test and verify the recoverability of virtual machines.

Veeam claims to have cracked VM backup problem

Called SureBackup, the technology solves one of the biggest problems in backing up virtual machines. Even though a virtual machine can be backed up without errors, there is no guarantee that the virtual machine and its operating system and applications can be recovered. Veeam SureBackup solves this problem.

Although organizations can test the recoverability of their virtual machines, it is often expensive, time-consuming and error-prone. The SureBackup technology allows a virtual machine to run directly from a compressed backup. By publishing the content of backup files directly to ESX hosts, Veeam eliminates the need to extract backup files, and the time and storage required to do so. The technology also includes automatic creation of an isolated test environment using available production, disaster recovery or lab resources. It supports any guest operating system and virtualized application.

In addition to SureBackup testing and verification, the new technology from Veeam enables other key capabilities, such as universal application-item recovery, and provides on-demand production replicas for system testing and troubleshooting.

The SureBackup technology is patent-pending and will be available in Version 5.0 of Veeam Backup & Replication in the third quarter of this year.
