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.
Table of Contents (15 chapters)
Section 1: Installation – Best Practices and Optimizations
Section 2: CDP and Immutability – Hardened Repositories, Backups, and Object Storage
Section 3: Linux Proxy Enhancements, Instant Recovery, Veeam ONE, and Orchestrator


This chapter has reviewed the Linux servers as proxies. We took a look at what was new within v11a of Veeam Backup & Replication. We reviewed the enhancements made for the unique features of the Linux proxy. We then took a look at how these latest enhancements can play a significant role in your backup infrastructure. We discussed the persistent data mover used now on a Linux proxy, along with the enhanced security for this. Also discussed was how credentials get replaced with certificates for communication between the backup server and Linux proxy.

After reading this chapter, you should now have a much deeper understanding of the proxy enhancements and what's new in v11a. It would help if you also understood how many of these new features could help benefit your environment, from security to performance.

Hopefully, you will now have a better idea of Linux proxies. The next chapter will look at the newest enhancements for the recovery of SQL Server and Oracle...
