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.

Discovering monitoring – vSphere, vCloud, and Veeam

To launch the Veeam ONE programs after installation, you use the icons on the desktop:

Figure 9.16 – Veeam ONE icons

The icons launch the respective programs installed with Veeam ONE:

  • Veeam ONE Monitor – Launches the Monitor console where you configure and monitor your virtual infrastructure, vCloud Director, Veeam Backup & Replication, and configure alarms.
  • Veeam ONE Reporter – This launches your web browser and takes you to the dashboards, workspace, and configurations.

When you first launch the Veeam ONE Monitor client, a small wizard comes up asking for both SMTP (email) and SNMP settings. The following is the initial screen showing the different tabs you can fill out to complete this wizard or you can click Cancel to skip this. You can configure the email and SNMP settings later in the console.
