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.

Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator – What is it?

Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator is a separate program from the Veeam Availability Suite (the combination of Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE). It provides comprehensive DR orchestration using Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator allows automation of your DR processes to ensure that your mission-critical workloads are recoverable with near-zero Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).

Some of the critical capabilities of Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator include the following:

  • Automating DR testing: Allows you to create orchestration plans for DR testing to ensure recoverability.
  • Dynamically generating documentation: Allows the generation and creation of DR documents, ensuring readiness and compliance.
  • Avoiding RPO and RTO violations: By testing your DR plans, you can ensure that you will stay in compliance with company policy for RPO/RTO.
  • Resiliency with one...
