Bridging the availability gap

Achieving non-stop service and continuous protection is costly – requiring investments in server virtualization, modern storage applications and cloudbased services that most small businesses can rarely afford. While businesses are experiencing data growth between 30-50% each year and users are demanding access to data 24/7 with little tolerance for downtime, legacy backup solutions are causing an availability gap between the requirements of an Always-On BusinessTM and ITs ability to consistently meet these needs. Veeam bridges this gap by by providing modern data centers consistent availability. As a result, recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of <15 minutes for ALL applications are within reach.

Delivering enterprise-level availability for an affordable price

Veeam Backup Essentials™ delivers the same reliable benefits of Veeam Availability Suite™ but is specially priced for small businesses with savings of up to 60% or more, providing, enterprise-level data protection for small businesses with virtual environments of 2, 4 or 6 sockets.

Veeam understands that small and remote office VMware deployments need reliable, cost-effective management tools that are packed with innovative features at an affordable price. That's why we offer the Veeam Backup Essentials bundle—the perfect companion to VMware vSphere Essentials that includes our most popular products for small and midsize business (SMB) at a savings of up to 64%.

With VMware vSphere Essentials and Veeam Backup Essentials, you can deploy, manage and protect your virtual infrastructure at an affordable price. This powerful combination addresses the needs of IT organizations in SMBs to provide:

  • Powerful capabilities on a budget
  • Streamlined deployment and operations
  • High value at a low price

Veeam Backup Essentials is designed for customers using VMware vSphere Essentials and includes licensing for 2 CPU sockets of each product in the bundle. (Veeam Backup Management Suite is available for customers with larger environments.)

There are two editions of Veeam Backup Essentials: Veeam Backup Essentials Enterprise Edition and Veeam Backup Essentials Standard Edition. The Enterprise Edition includes Veeam ONE and the Enterprise Edition of Veeam Backup & Replication, while the Standard Edition includes Veeam ONE and the Standard Edition of Veeam Backup & Replication. You can use either edition of Veeam Backup Essentials with either edition of VMware vSphere Essentials — the editions don't have to match. For example, you can use Veeam Backup Essentials Enterprise Edition with VMware vSphere Essentials or VMware vSphere Essentials Plus.

What is VMware vSphere Essentials Plus?

VMware vSphere Essentials Plus Edition is an integrated virtualization solution designed to meet the needs of small and growing organizations. By adopting VMware vSphere Essentials Plus, customers can use server, network and storage resources dynamically and more effectively, as a single pool or "private cloud" to protect business-critical applications and data. The result is an always-on IT environment that is more cost-effective, resilient and responsive to changing business needs.

Key Features and Components

VMware vSphere Essentials Plus includes the following key features and components:

  • VMware ESXi™ and VMware ESX hypervisor architectures provide a robust, production-proven, high-performance virtualization layer that allows multiple virtual machines to share hardware resources with record-breaking performance that can match and in some cases exceed native throughput.
  • VMware vCenter™ Server for Essentials provides centralized management and performance monitoring for all virtual machines and vSphere hosts with built-in physical-to-virtual (P2V) machine conversion and rapid provisioning, using virtual machine templates.
  • VMware Virtual SMP enables the use of ultra-powerful virtual machines that possess up to four virtual CPUs.
  • VMware vStorage Virtual Machine File System (VMFS) allows virtual machines to access shared storage devices (FibreChanel, iSCSI, etc.), and is a key enabling technology for other vSphere components such as Storage vMotion.
  • VMware vStorage Thin Provisioning provides dynamic allocation of shared storage capacity, allowing IT organizations to implement a tiered storage strategy while reducing storage spending by up to 50 percent.
  • VMware vStorage APIs provide integration with supported third-party data protection.
  • VMware vCenter Update Manager automates tracking, patching and updating for vSphere hosts as well as applications and operating systems running in VMware virtual machines.
  • VMware vCenter Converter allows IT administrators to rapidly convert physical servers and third-party virtual machines into VMware virtual machines.
  • VMware VMsafe™ APIs enable the use of security products that work in conjunction with the virtualization layer to provide higher levels of security to virtual machines than even physical servers.
  • Hardware compatibility is possible with the broadest range of 32- and 64-bit servers and operating systems, storage and networking equipment, and enterprise management tools.
  • VMware vMotion™ eliminates the need to schedule application downtime due to scheduled server maintenance through live migration of virtual machines across servers, with no disruption to users or loss of service.
  • VMware High Availability provides cost-effective, automated restart within minutes for all applications in the event of hardware or operating system failures.
  • VMware Data Recovery provides simple, cost-effective, agentless backup and recovery for virtual machines, in smaller environments.
