Veeam Backup free

Veeam delivers powerful backup software for backup your virtual or psychical servers (veeam endpoint). The backup method for VMWare or Hyper-V virtual systems is agentless. There is no need to install something on the guest system. Veeam Connects to the Hypervisor layer, creates a snapshot, transports this snapshot to a backup repository and saves it. Veeam make use of the Hypervisor API to create a backup. When there is some application installed on the system there is a possibility to create a what they called application aware backup. The Veeam service connects with RPC to the virtual system and make use of the application VSS writers to create a consistent backup.

VEEAM Backup free features:

Veeam Backup psychical server, client or desktop

Veeam endpoint protection allows you to make use of a stand-alone Windows service for backup of your physical client or server. It does not require a dedicated server or repository’s. You just install the software on each server you want to protect. The windows server makes use of a little local MS SQL DB. It is possible to integrate Veeam endpoint with Veeam Backup and Replication software. This allows you to save your endpoint backup on a Veeam repository.
Note: Veeam Endpoint does not support Application VSS writers yet. So the backup is not Application consistent. But for many situations is a crash consistent enough.
