Virtual Machine Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication is a powerful, easy-to-use and affordable backup and availability solution. It provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualised applications and data, bringing VM (virtual machine) backup and replication together in a single software solution.



Continuous Data Protection Technology

CDP technology starts by taking a full snapshot of your data. After the initial replica is created, Server Backup Manager continuously monitors changes to your data and saves only those bits of information that have changed. Since you’re not constantly running full, performance-killing backups, your system’s I/O operations aren’t taxed in any way, keeping those critical resources free to serve your clients’ needs.



Remote storage space accessible via FTP, RSYNC, SFTP and NFS

Backups can be taken nightly, weekly and monthly and stored as required. Backup storage space is supplied at remote sites over 100 geographical miles from the datacentre your server is located. If you opt for our Level 3 Server Management or above and choose this backup method your backups will be monitored by UK Servers.

Backups stored within your server
