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 Veeam ONE – installation and configuration

The installation of Veeam ONE is a pretty straightforward process, and you are required to have the ISO file, as noted in the Technical requirements section at the beginning of the chapter. Also, before installing, you need to check the following prerequisites:

  • Check the platform and system requirements – Ensure that your virtual platform is supported and the machine you are installing Veeam ONE on meets the hardware and software requirements. If using an advanced deployment with components on different servers, ensure they meet the needs too.
  • Check account permissions – Make sure the user account you will be using for the installation of Veeam ONE has sufficient rights.
  • Check ports – Make sure all required ports for communication between Veeam ONE components, virtual infrastructure servers, vCloud Director servers, and Veeam Backup & Replication servers are allowed.
