Veeam Backup & Replication support for Windows Server Hyper-V brings unprecedented speed and efficiency to Windows Server Hyper-V data protection. Major first-to-market capabilities include:

  • 2-in-1: backup and replication: Provides image-based backup and near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) in a single solution.
  • Built-in deduplication and compression: Included at no extra charge, these capabilities minimize consumption of network bandwidth and backup storage.
  • Changed block tracking for Windows Server Hyper-V: Exclusive Veeam technology enables fast, frequent and efficient backup and replication of all VMs, including those running on Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV).
  • Additional differentiators for Windows Server Hyper-V include:
  • Agentless: There are no agents to license, deploy, maintain, or monitor.
  • Forever incremental: Eliminates the need for full periodic backups by creating new full backups from incremental backups. This is essential when backing up large VMs or over a WAN.
  • Instant file-level recovery: Restore Windows guest files directly from an image-level backup.
