By: Chris Childerhose

Overview of this book

Veeam is one of the leading modern data protection solutions, making it a necessary skill for anyone responsible for securing virtual environments. This revised second edition of Mastering Veeam Backup & Replication is updated to cover Veeam version 11. The book guides you through implementing modern data protection solutions for your cloud and virtual infrastructure with Veeam, all while helping you master advanced concepts such as Continuous Data Protection (CDP), extended object storage support, Veeam ONE enhancements, and Orchestrator. Starting with Veeam essentials, including installation, best practices, and optimizations for Veeam Backup & Replication, you'll get to grips with the 3-2-1-1-0 rule to safeguard data. You'll understand how to set up a backup server, proxies, repositories, and more and then advance to cover a powerful feature of Veeam 11 – CDP. As you progress, you'll learn about immutability (also known as hardened repositories) and discover the best practices for creating them. Finally, you'll explore the new proxy option available in Linux and become well-versed with advanced topics such as extended object storage support, Veeam ONE enhancements, and Orchestrator. By the end of this Veeam book, you'll be able to implement Veeam Backup & Replication for securing your environment and enabling disaster recovery.

Understanding how the latest enhancements can help your organization

With all the newest enhancements, you may be wondering how these can help you in your backup environment. The following sections will look at the improvements from the previous section, Understanding Linux proxy enhancements and what's new in v11a.

A Linux proxy server can be physical or virtual

With the proxy transport modes changing, you can now have the Linux proxy server as either a physical server or a VM within your virtual infrastructure. By deploying a Linux proxy in your virtual infrastructure, you will save the cost of physical hardware, maintenance, and support. Instead, it becomes part of your virtual environment, allowing for easier maintenance, updating, and so on. However, if you choose a physical server, this allows for storage integration with iSCSI or Fiber Channel and faster network backups when using a 10 GB network or higher. There is added cost for physical hardware to replace failed...
