Veeam Managed Backup

The Backup as a Service solution for your VMs

Avoid data loss and back up your VMs with ease!

As a Service and in one click

Fully automate backups by simply right-clicking on each VM.

Choose the VMs you want to protect to fit in with your strategy.

Enable solution

To get the solution, you just need to enable the option in your control panel. Then, you can manage your different backups directly from vSphere, by right-clicking on the virtual machines.

Veeam Backup is available with vSphere 4.1 / 5.0 / 5.1 / 5.5 / 6.0 and 6.5.

Additional information

The solution requires the creation of a virtual machine based on Windows, which will be:
Included if you have a Windows Datacenter licence with OVH
Charged (from £17.00 ex. VAT) if you do not have any Windows Datacenter licences with OVH.

You need to activate HA and DRS services to create the Windows VM. This VM will then follow the DRS affinity rules defined by you.

For stability reasons we recommend that you do not back up VMs whose volume is higher than 2 TB.
If you have over 15 VMs backed up, you might need to create an additional proxy backup to ensure that your backups will be performed successfully.

Automatic, transparent and with no impact on available space

The OVH Veeam Server creates daily managed backups on selected VMs. The management VLAN in your infrastructure transmits your data to your Repository, which is mounted in RAID and entirely managed by the OVH teams. With this additional storage, you can continue to benefit from the useful space in your datastores!
