Leveraged data
Using backup data to create an exact copy of your production environment

Veeam Backup & Replication mitigates the risks associated with application deployment by putting your backups and replicas to work in a production-like environment prior to any production rollout.

  • Create a Virtual Lab without provisioning additional resources to run your applications from Veeam backups and replicas.
  • Test or troubleshoot an application in one or more VMs from an On-Demand Sandbox™ without affecting production workloads.

We had two options: we could spend more than half the workweek managing and worrying about VM backup and replication, or we could put Veeam in place and forget about it.
