Feature Request - Central Management Console

Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

Hi again.

Restores should be possible from the endpoint. When it comes for a restore, it's usually a single item restore. Users could do this themselves with administrative privileges on the computer. For bare-metal or volume restores, an IT guy should do it anyways, so I agree on that.

Summarizing, I don't see the need of a restore utility directly from the console. It should only be for backups. At least at the first version launch.

regards.

Yes, seems like we are on the same page regarding capabilities for the first launch. Thanks!

+1 for Central Management Console

What I would like:

- deploy/update endpoint agents from Veeam B&R console
- start backups/restores from Veeam B&R console

Please don't develop a web console... i really love the Veeam B&R console

Cheers

I would like to put in my vote for a Central Management Console (and many of the other feature already posted by others).
And while console integration to VB&R console could be an option, I believe it would benefit from it having a separate console as to be available for those who don't have VB&R, thus positioning it as a desktop / laptop / SMB physical server B&R Solution.
And for me personally I think a Cloud based console would be excellent, and to be totally awesome, have the ability to be multi-tennant.

Great product with great potential.

Thanks

I'd like to have the possibility to backup a USB-drive.
I do my backups to a NAS device, but would like to be able to backup my externally connected USB disk to my laptop.

Tim,

This can be done perfectly today by choosing "local storage"

Thanks

Mike, you can only choose 'local storage' as a Destination for a backup.
I want to backup my USB drive, so as a source.

Aaahh... Sorry Tim,

Misread that. I thought you meant as a target. Yes, indeed, as of today, you can't protect your USB devices.

But we take your vote :-)

Cheers

Waiting on this and I will completely abandon the mess that has become Acronis. Very important though, ability to backup multiple computers with a single job. This way I can easily manage jobs be departement, or frequency.

Hi Zac,

Thanks for the feedback and your feature request, though one thing is not quite clear to me. Do you want to backup multiple computers remotely within one job?

Would be a nice idea, so we can get only one notification email for similar computers, for instance "Purchase" department

Yes, I understand that, but in order to use backup installed in the guest OS, the backup job has to be configured in each guest. Remote backup is possible when you "virtualize" your computers :)

I know, I'm talking about Veeam Endpoint Backup 2.0 that will be fully customizable and manageable from a Central Console :D

Marco,

FYI, two days ago we announced a plugin for LabTech to remotely manage, deploy and configure VEB: http://www.veeam.com/blog/centralized-management-for-veeam-endpoint-backup-with-veeam-endpoint-for-labtech.html
