Concept of backing up HyperV-Hosts

Hello there at veeam,
I am still pretty new to this and am a bit dazzled with the many products and options available.

Our company runs 3 HyperV-Hosts on WinSRV 2012R2 (2 in an FailoverCluster / 1 as a HyperV-REPLICA-Host) All Hosts have DUAL-XEON-CPUs so I think we could use Backup Essentials to backup those 3 machines.

One thing that I don't understand here is the concept of backing up the physical hosts as well ... Is it possible to install both Backup Essentials(to take care of the VMs) and additionally install Veeam Backup Agent (Free or any of the paid versions) to backup the host-machines ?

Looking forward to your answers,

Hello Manfred,

Yes, you can do that. General approach is to protect VMs with Veeam Backup & Replication and physical hosts with Veeam Agents.

Setting up both solutions (VBR and VAW) at one machine is fully supported.
