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.

This chapter has reviewed object storage and the newest capacity tier supported by storage vendors. We took a look at the new archive tier that is now available within Veeam Backup & Replication v11a. We reviewed configuring and setting up the new capacity and archive tiers within the Veeam Backup & Replication console, including adding them to a SOBR for archiving. We then took a look at immutability within Amazon S3 Glacier and the new policy-based offloading. Finally, we looked at how the archive tier can be used for cost-optimized archiving and storage. After reading this chapter, you should now have a much deeper understanding of the new object storage capacity and archive tiers. You should also now understand how to configure them within Veeam Backup & Replication. Lastly, you know how to use immutability with Amazon S3 Glacier, how the policy-based offload engine works, and how the archive tier is optimized for cost savings.

Hopefully, you will now have...
