We love Veeam but then again who doesn’t?

A new component which hooks into Veeam v8 is Veeam Endpoint Backup (currently Beta), with this product you can extend the Veeam backup solution used within your virtualised environment for use with Physical workstations and laptops. It’s not just cheap, it’s free, and what’s more you can hook it into your Cloudhelix Cloud Connect (BUaaS) repository so you have the added benefit of storing copies offsite, here’s an overview of how that might look;

  • Veeam 8 Backup Server (a trial will do for testing)
  • Veeam Backup & Replication v8 Patch
  • A physical Windows 7 or higher desktop/laptop
