Linux support in Veeam Backup & Replication

Linux support in Veeam Backup & Replication
The Linux OS family found its way into the life of both end users and businesses around the world.Corporate servers, cloud systems, routers, tablets, smartphones — many of these run on Linux. Linux isinstalled on about 95% of the world's fastest supercomputers and about 60% of servers, demonstratingits performance, flexibility, reliability and low total cost of ownership (TCO).A recent survey concluded that the feature set (74%), security (69%) and lower TCO (69%) are the topthree reasons why people use Linux. The executive suite's view of Linux remains consistently positive,with a steady 95% to 97% of executives viewing the platform as equally or more strategic to theorganization.

This information highlights the importance of Linux for all kinds of organizations.We began supporting Linux environments since the first version of our software at Veeam®, and thesituation has only improved since then. Currently Veeam Backup & Replication™ supports and usesLinux operating systems extensively. Veeam can protect any Linux virtual machine (VM), and differentVeeam components use Linux as their operating systems. For example, the multi-OS file level recoveryprocedure deploys a special file-level recovery (FLR) helper — that is a virtual appliance running astripped down Linux kernel that has a minimum set of components but all the needed modules torestore data from every existing Linux and Unix file system.

In this white paper, I’m going to shed more light on the integration between Veeam Backup &Replication and Linux. You’ll become familiar with the specifics of using Linux systems as a backuprepository for Veeam, and the specifics of running Linux as a guest OS in your VMware vSphere andMicrosoft Hyper-V VMs. I will also enlighten the enhancements for Linux that we’ve brought to the newVeeam Backup & Replication v9, including Veeam Explorer™ for Oracle.The intended audience for this white paper includes backup administrators and people who are familiar withVeeam Backup & Replication and Linux systems and want to expand their knowledge about Veeam products.
