Veeam is the leader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management. Veeam provides a single platform for modernizing backup, accelerating hybrid cloud and securing your data.


Veeam® Backup & Replication™ is Veeam’s powerful industry leading backup and recovery engine that provides simple, reliable and flexible protection of all your cloud, virtual and physical workloads and so much more. With many advanced backup, restore, replication and continuous data protection capabilities, Veeam Backup & Replication is your single solution for backing up your entire environment, on-premises, in the cloud or anywhere in between.

There are also several value-added bundles that build on top of Veeam Backup & Replication, including the following:

Veeam Availability Suite™ takes the proven powerful backup capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication and adds on the advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity-planning functionalities of Veeam ONE™ for added enterprise value.

Designed for small businesses, Veeam Backup Essentials™ offers the same functionalities as Veeam Availability Suite, but with packages and price points that are more appropriate for smaller businesses.

Designed for service providers, the Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) Rental program offers pay-as-you-grow pricing via an à-la-carte offering to build Veeam-powered BaaS & DRaaS.

  • Physical: Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac, IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris
  • Cloud: AWS instances and Microsoft Azure virtual machines (VMs)

  • Veeam Backup for AWS and for Microsoft Azure
  • Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV

Veeam Availability Suite is not a unique product. Instead it’s a value-added bundle that includes Veeam Backup & Replication plus the monitoring, analytics and reporting features of Veeam ONE. Since Veeam ONE is a common add-on to Veeam Backup & Replication, the Suite is the easiest and most effective way to consume Veeam ONE.
