Andreas Lesslhumer looks at Veeam’s efforts to become as renown in the physical server space as they are in the virtual one. With the Veeam Agent products for Windows and Linux, Andreas sees them making significant strides. The Windows Agent allows users to restore backups directly to Hyper-V or Azure, has source-side encryption, and full support for Windows Server 2016. Andreas gave it a spin, and so far it’s proven easy to install and as capable as you’d expect from Veeam.
Andreas is a PernixPro and five-time vExpert (2012-2016). Currently he is working for the IT subsidiary of an Austrian banking group as a virtualization architect. During his spare time he volunteers as a VMUG Leader in Austria and blogs at Running-System.com.
