Veeam VM Backup to Cloud with Wasabi
Optimizing VM Backup and Recovery
VM backup and recovery are critical IT operations to ensure business continuity. Traditionally, IT departments have relied on purpose-built backup appliances and applications to safeguard against server, infrastructure, and security failures. However, with the increasing spread of VMs across production, development, and verification environments, expanding VM backup repositories has become a major challenge for system administrators.
To address the issue of large VM backup footprints, cloud storage is being increasingly utilized for VM backup. However, cloud storage may not match the performance level of on-premises storage for recovery operations. As a solution, cloud storage is often used as a tiered repository behind on-premises storage.
