Veam Backup and VMware
Posted on 2014-02-11
Looking for some feedback on Veam. Currently we have a test server setup with ESXi free version and it's ready for deployment. This is a small shop and will be the only server.
My understanding is Veam is prefered by a number of users for vmware backup. I also understand you have to have a paid version of vmware to use veam.
I'm looking ot get VMware essentials, their basic and cheapest entry.
I would then get Veam's business essentials so i can do Active directory.along with the basics of instance snapshots and brick backup of files.
If we add a standalone server later, my understanding is veam only works for virtualized environments. What do you do in this situation? Virtualize the standalone even though it only has one client installed on it? Or do you use another backup solution for it?
Any suggestions, feedback etc. would be greatly appreciated.
