Creating a Veeam Linux Hardened repository is both simple and easy, but read this document to understand exactly what it involves and not just how to do it. A Great in-depth read.
Oracle and Veeam. A Modern Data Protection Strategy for Enterprises
Author: 2023 Ali Salman V1.0
It is mission critical for an organisation to have a proper disaster recovery strategy for an Oracle Database, in case of a disaster the database must be capable of a restore with minimal effort and without any delays.
Protecting Google Cloud VMware engine with Veeam
Author: Patricio Cerda 2022 V1.0
Many companies are planning or are already in the process of migrating at least a part of their workloads to the cloud. There are multiple strategies to accomplish this and one of those strategies is running VMware workloads natively in a cloud provider.
Google Cloud VMware Engine is one of the options that you have, to run VMware workloads natively in a public cloud, in this case in Google Cloud, and leverage all the benefits of a cloud infrastructure.
Of course, as with any other environment, you need to protect your workloads running in Google Cloud VMware Engine (GCVE). The goal of this document is to provide recommendations and best practices to protect GCVE workloads using Veeam solutions.
Veeam Backup for Azure (Azure Private Deployments)
Author: David Bewernick 2023 V1.0
Microsoft Azure is more than ever one of the preferred choices when it comes to public cloud computing. Customers and partners know that protecting the workloads in the cloud matter for various reasons. This is underlined by the Shared Responsibility Model, which defined that from the OS system onward or the data kept in PaaS and SaaS the customer is responsible for the data protection.
To protect their data from outsiders, customers are more frequently setting up isolated or restricted networks within Azure. Such environments are also called private deployments and are often seen in hardened environments based on the Microsoft Cloud Adaption Framework (CAF).
This document should give backup and Azure security administrators some guidance steps on running Veeam Backup for Azure in an environment where public access should be avoided.
Veeam Backup & Replication V12 Enhanced security and scalability with object storage Secure Mode
Author: Luca Dell’Oca 2023 v1.0
One of the most anticipated features of Veeam Backup & Replication v12 is the ability to write backups directly to Object Storage (also referred to as “Direct to Object” or D2O in short). This capability unlocks all the powerful use cases that involve object storage as now it can be used as a primary target for any backup and restore activity in Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Agents and Veeam Cloud Connect.
Support for block storage is not going away, but the possibility to choose between Block and Object adds even more design possibilities to Veeam architects.
In this document, while describing the design and use cases of D2O, we will focus on some advanced capabilities of Object Storage, specifically the multi-tenancy options. On AWS and S3-compatible storage Veeam Backup & Replication v12 can leverage IAM and STS. On Microsoft Azure we will leverage SAS. In the paper we will refer to these as “Secure Mode”. We’ll explain what it is, the benefits, security implications, and how it can be used in both end users and service provider environments.
Designing a Kubernetes Disaster Recovery strategy
Author: Patricio Cerda 2023 v1.0
Applications have been quickly evolving from monolithic and virtualized approaches to microservice-based architectures, where Kubernetes has emerged to become the de-facto container orchestration platform.
Regardless the application’s architecture, data is always going to be the most important asset in any company, so protecting it is paramount. Therefore, as with any other approach, when using microservices with Kubernetes it is key to have a proper Data Protection strategy, including a proper Disaster Recovery Plan.
This whitepaper provides some recommendations and best practices to create a Disaster Recovery Strategy for a Kubernetes infrastructure, and all the applications running on it, by using Kasten by Veeam. These recommendations include the use of automation tools, which make i–t easier to design of the Kubernetes Disaster Recovery strategy in a DevOps context
