Free Tool
for VMware and Hyper-V Backup

Veeam Backup Free Edition

Ad hoc backup for your VMs

Are you on a budget or still experimenting with VM backup?
Veeam Backup Free Edition is the perfect solution because it’s:


Clone, copy, export and manage your VMs. Look inside the VM and restore individual items.


No complicated configuration, and no need to power off the VM. It just works!

Free forever.
Unlimited number of VMs

No expiration date and no limit on the number of hosts or VMs.


Veeam Backup Free Edition is packed with powerful utilities
for day-to-day VM management, including VeeamZIP

With VeeamZIP you can create ad-hoc backups of live VMs for operational, portability or archival purposes. VeeamZIP is similar to a full VM backup – it fully encapsulates the VM and compresses it into a compact, portable backup file. You can write the file to removable storage, network storage or cloud storage, and restore any or all of the VM wherever you need it.
