Veeam® Backup Enterprise Manager

Enterprise Manager is an optional component that is installed on the Microsoft Windows server in the environment. This can be either a physical server or a virtual one, and the Enterprise Manager component can be installed on a Veeam backup server or as a dedicated server.

When an Enterprise Manager is installed, it acts as a federated view for all connected Veeam backup servers, centralizing the management of jobs and reporting. It also enables the indexing of files inside Microsoft Windows guest OS backups, making it possible to search for files in all current and archived backups regardless of media type and location.


The license level governs how much data Enterprise Manager retains. If you have the Standard license, Enterprise Manager will only keep an index of those backups that are currently stored in backup repositories. If Enterprise or Enterprise Plus licenses are in use, it will also keep track of files on an archived medium, such as tape.
