Veeam Backup & Replication for Linux

Post by kalleanka »

From FAQ:
> Q: Is Veeam Backup & Replication available as a Linux-based virtual appliance?
> A: No.Veeam Backup & Replication must be installed on Microsoft Windows.

Will there ever be a Veeam Backup & Replication for Linux?

Thank you.

Do you mean the ability to install Veeam B&R on Linux? Since Linux VMs can be backed up just fine.

[MERGED] How about to build Veeam Backup Appliance (Linux Ba

Post by Kas_Tigar »

If something like Veeam Backup Appliance (linux based) would exist, we will have no concern about ransomeware and backups.

Have Veeam ever think about such thing?

Think - yes, plan - no. Regarding your ransomware concern, you can use Linux-based backup repository, though, keep in mind that there are plenty of Linux ransomware as well, so the safest solution is still using air-gapped backups.

[MERGED] Is running B&R on Linux anywhere in the future?

Post by bunger »

Having setup Veeam against a Linux immutable repository recently, it seems it would be more efficient if B&R could run directly on a Linux box instead of having to push data across a network connection for backups.

Is such functionality anywhere on the roadmap?

Hi,

Not in a short-term for sure.

What do you mean by "it would be more efficient if B&R could run directly on a Linux box instead of having to push data across a network connection for backups."?

Unless you assign repo/gateway/proxy role to you backup server, most of VMs' backup data is transferred between hosts where the datamovers reside (source/target proxies, repos/gateways, WAN accelerators) while VBR basically orchestrates the process. Or do you want to have 100% all-in-one design?

Please elaborate,

Thanks

Ideally, 100% all-in-one design as most of our installs are all on the same box currently...

With Veeam, backups are direct to target (proxy>repository or agent>repository). No backup data flows through the backup server, so it makes no difference where it is installed.

This seems like a very old thread on this topic anyway, there is a newer one with more comments, so I'm locking this one down to prevent duplicate discussions.
