Veeam Backup for Linux, a free tool that’s backing up soon

By

Veeam’s new Backup for Linux is coming soon to deliver availability for Linux Servers in the Cloud and On Premises, and it’ll be free.

Veeam Software, the enterprise availability company, has announced Veeam Backup for Linux, a free standalone agent that delivers backup and recovery for Linux servers running in the public cloud, as well as for a few remaining physical Linux servers running on premises.

The company’s customers can use this tool to back up individual cloud instances and restore them on premises, or back up on premises and restore in the cloud. Linux remains the go-to choice for the cloud, with 75% of enterprises reporting they use Linux as their primary cloud platform - according to the Enterprise End User Trends Report, the Linux Foundation in partnership with Yeoman Technology Group; December 3, 2014.

Veeam explained that ‘existing solutions often require a manual process to execute or are complex and expensive, which means the availability of many of these Linux servers is at risk.’ Doug Hazelman, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam said: “Backing up and recovering Linux servers is often a complicated and costly process, frequently needing manual intervention or consuming too much of an IT administrator’s time.

“Moreover, as hybrid cloud increasingly becomes the industry standard and more enterprises look to run more workloads in the public cloud, it is important to ensure that these public cloud server instances are backed up and can be recovered easily and quickly in order to ensure availability and avoid business disruption.

“The Veeam community has asked us for an easy to use tool to ensure the availability of their Linux cloud instances and restore them anywhere. We are not only meeting this need for them, but are also adding it to the Veeam portfolio of free tools for the IT community that solve real challenges.”

Veeam says its new standalone Backup for Linux tool offers the following benefits:

  • Backup anywhere: Back up Linux instances running in the cloud or on premises.
  • Flexible recovery: Perform on-premises restores from backups of individual cloud instances, or cloud restores of on-premises backups.
  • Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication v9: Take full advantage of Veeam backup repositories as target locations; leverage existing Veeam Backup & Replication capabilities for granular recovery.

A closed beta version of Veeam Backup for Linux will be available in the first half of 2016 on a first come, first serve basis.

If you want to be one of the first to get access to the beta code, you can sign up here.
