Veeam provides additional software for VMware vSphere as a VMware technology alliance partner. In this article, we will show you the difference between the Veeam Essentials and Veeam Essentials Plus as well as the differences between the standard and enterprise licenses. Microsoft Hyper-V has been supported since version 6. You will find the functional differences between Veeam Backup for VMware and Veeam Backup for Hyper-V in our Veeam Backup & Replication V6 Wiki article.

You will find price information on the Veeam Backup for VMware Configurator page in the Thomas Krenn Webshop.

The Veeam Essentials packages are no longer connected with VMware Essentials as of February 1 2012. A Veeam Essentials package contains licenses for two CPU sockets, which can be used in connection with individual VMware licenses. A maximum of three Veeam Essentials packages can be combined for each company. Beyond that, the standard Veeam Management Suite must be used. Veeam Essentials includes Veeam Backup & Replicator and Veeam One. The two Veeam Monitor and Veeam Reporter products have been combined into Veeam One as of version 6.

U-AIR (Universal Application Item Recovery)

This system permits recovery of individual objects from any virtualized application under each operating system. To accomplish this, additional backups, agents or software utilities are not necessary. Advantage: Expensive specialty utilities become redundant and every application and user benefits from granular recovery.

On-demand Sandbox

The On-demand Sandbox assists with the creation of test virtual machines (VMs) at any time that has been backed up. Thus, problems can be resolved more easily, and workaround, software patches or new program code can be tested without building a separate test environment. In addition, the VMs will be freed from the otherwise standard additional VMware snapshots.
