Veeam Endpoint Backup for physical machines announced!
Veeam Endpoint Backup was announced today by Veeam during their conference VeeamON.
A simple and free standalone tool that enables users to back up Windows laptops/desktops to a hard drive, a NAS share or a Veeam backup repository.
This is huge! Now while it is not targeted at Physical Servers, personally I don’t think there will be any limitation that prevents that.
My favorite points on Veeam Endpoint Backup so far are:
#1 ITS FREE! Who has not previously had Veeam FastSCP in their toolkit? I will use Veeam Endpoint Backup everywhere now, my wifes laptop, my parents desktop etc.
#2 I can send data to a Veeam Backup & Replication Backup Repository!
#3 Its not just file restore – I can even perform bare-metal restores!
Make sure you go sign up for the Veeam Endpoint Backup public beta now: http://go.veeam.com/endpoint
