Veeam Agent for Linux
Availability for public cloud and physical workloads
Sorry, this product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement.
As IT organizations look to run more Linux-based workloads in the public cloud, it is important to ensure they are backed up and can be recovered in order to avoid business disruption. However, backing up and recovering Linux instances is often cumbersome or expensive, requiring manual intervention and consuming an IT administrator’s valuable time.
Veeam® Agent for Linux delivers the tools and level of interaction needed to properly back up these Linux workloads and enables the same fast, intuitive and reliable recovery options you’ve come to expect from Veeam.
Fast and flexible Linux backups
Veeam Agent for Linux is the perfect solution for scheduling automatic backups for your Linux instances, regardless of if they are running on physical machines, in the public cloud or both.
Veeam Agent for Linux includes:
- Entire computer, volume-level and file-level backup
- Built-in snapshot and changed block tracking (CBT) drivers
- Support for multiple jobs
- Pre-freeze and post-thaw snapshot scripts
- Choice of a user-friendly UI or traditional Linux command line interface (CLI)
- Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication™
After an initial full backup has completed, Veeam Agent for Linux performs incremental backups — copying only new or changed data blocks since the last backup cycle. This means your backups will be fast and use as little storage as possible.
Veeam Agent for Linux is a simple backup agent that’s designed to ensure the Availability of your Linux installations, regardless of if they’re deployed in the public cloud or on-premises.
