Veeam releases free version of Endpoint Backup

Endpoint backup has long been a tedious task that everyone knows they should be doing.

Endpoint backup has long been a tedious task that everyone knows they should be doing.

Today, IT professionals now have another option for backing up endpoints, which has long been a major data protection headache.

Veeam has released a new free tool that requires no additional software or purchases, called Veeam Endpoint Backup.

The solution joins Veeam’s family of free edition tools that also includes Veeam Backup, Veeam ONE and Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V.

“Even in today’s highly virtualised environments, most endpoints remain physical and they need to be backed up,” says Doug Hazelman, vice president of product strategy, Veeam.

“It’s no small problem. With more than 330 million Windows-based devices being shipped last year, that’s a lot of endpoints to protect.

“While availability solutions have evolved exponentially for the virtualised data centre, endpoint protection has been somewhat ignored.

“With Veeam Endpoint Backup free, IT professionals now have a simple solution for backing up endpoints. Plus, if the IT organisation still has a few physical servers left in their data center, Veeam Endpoint Backup free can help fill that gap.”

Key backup features include the ability to do image-based volume and file-level backups, with flexible configuration including multiple scheduling options.

Recovery is also flexible and effortless with several easy-to-use options all from the same image-based backup, including bare-metal recovery to the same or dissimilar hardware, volume and file-level restores.

“Endpoint backup has been a difficult task for SMBs and individuals,” adds Liz Conner, Research Manager, IDC.

“With this new free tool, Veeam has introduced an interesting and elegant solution for both individuals looking to back up their own personal machines, or as protection for a small number of enterprise endpoints or even a few physical servers.”
