Veeam Data Platform: Proxmos VE support

Sometime between July and September 2024, Veeam Data Platform will start to support Proxmox Virtual Environment (Proxmox VE).

Why is Proxmox VE support important?

The Proxmox VE support within Veeam Data Platform allows organizations to protect, manage, and recover data across even more platforms. This strategic move has been highly anticipated by small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers and service providers. After the recent inclusion of Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager, this integration further expands the versatility of the Veeam Data Platform.

 

Key Features of Proxmox VE support in Veeam Data Platform

  • Immutable Backups: The Proxmox VE VMs are protected against ransomware attacks through the use of storage-based immutability, which safeguards the backups.
  • Enhanced Backup Performance: The integration of advanced Changed Block Tracking (CBT) and the hot add backup mode ensures that VM backups are performed efficiently, enhancing overall performance.
  • Veeam BitLooker: This feature optimizes backup performance and reduces storage requirements by intelligently excluding unused disk blocks, such as those from deleted guest OS files.
  • Storage Flexibility: Proxmox VE support includes compatibility with a wide range of backup repository types, allowing users to meet their Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) according to their specific needs and budget.
  • Full VM Recovery: The platform provides the capability to restore virtual machines across various virtualization platforms and clouds, which is crucial for maintaining business continuity.
  • Granular Recovery Capabilities: In the event of data loss or disruption, such as from a ransomware attack, Proxmox VE support enables the quick recovery of altered or deleted files, ensuring the resilience of operations.
