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.

In this chapter, we looked at Instant Recovery and what backups you can use for this process. We reviewed the requirements and prerequisites for conducting an Instant Recovery and how the vPower NFS Service plays a crucial role in performing the tasks.

We also discussed and looked at the entire Instant Recovery process using the wizard. We touched on how you conduct a quick migration to move the VM into your production environment or stop publishing to cancel the restore overall, dismounting the VM and datastore. Finally, we took a look at the new features and enhancements of v11a to see what other instant recovery options are now available. After reading this chapter, you should now have a much deeper understanding of Instant Recovery and what it is. You should also understand the requirements and prerequisites for doing a recovery, including the vPower NFS Service.

And finally, you should understand how to migrate your VM to production or cancel and dismount both...
