Veeam Backup Free Edition v8

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.

Full VMs
Restore a virtual machine back into your production environment by running it directly from the backup file.

Active Directory objects
Restore individual Active Directory (AD) objects quickly and export AD objects directly from an image-level backup for use with the LDIFDE utility.

VM files
Look inside the VM and restore individual guest files. IFLR is available for 17 file systems from Windows, Linux, Unix, BSD, Mac, Solaris and Novell—for VMs on vSphere and Hyper-V.

Exchange items
Get instant visibility into Exchange 2010 and 2013 backups, advanced search capabilities and quick recovery of individual Exchange items (emails, contacts, notes, etc.), Online Archive mailboxes and hard-deleted items.

SharePoint items
Browse SharePoint 2010 and 2013 backups and databases, search for specific files and quickly recover them.

SQL files
Save time and restore SQL databases without having to search for individual database files.


The must-have tool for virtualization
