Greetings friends, for all of you who are using Veeam Enterprise Manager, many of you will already know that there was a plugin for vCenter that allowed us to see at a glance the status of our Veeam copies, repositories, etc. It was something similar to this but Veeam has given it a complete redesign: With the new vSphere 6.7, where the HTML5 client is now GA, and the latest update of Veeam with its v9.5 U3a version, we will find a plugin that has been rewritten from scratch by Veeam to work seamlessly with the new HTML5 client, and not only that, but we will also find integration for VeeamONE and more, we will see how to update or install it step by step.
Greetings friends, in previous posts about Nutanix I showed you how to launch Nutanix Community Edition on VMware vSphere using the.img image that Nutanix offered us:

Greetings friends, sometimes we overlook some features that the products include, such as Veeam Enterprise Manager, and all the features that this allows us. Today I come to talk to you about a wonderful hidden and little-known feature, DataLabs on demand using Veeam Enterprise Manager.
Diagram with the use caseThe first thing I want to show you is the technical diagram of where this solution can be a good practice, let's imagine:
- There are several technical groups in an Infrastructure
- The developers group does not have access to the VMware, Veeam and/or production network infrastructure, only a VPN that gives them access only to the DataLabs Proxy Appliance
- This group of developers must be able to create DataLabs with a group of applications when they need them on demand from Enterprise Manager
Greetings friends, today I bring you a very interesting blog post for Service Providers, but not limited to these. Today I bring you a step further, and it's about taking advantage of the functionality of being able to launch Backups from cPanel users to a Cloud Connect Provider that includes Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0, each backup assigned to its tenant, etc.. As this Blog post has been a little long for me, I leave you the menu so that you can jump to where it is more interesting for you:
- 1.- Topology and brief explanation of the Infrastructure
- 2.- Installing Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0
- 3.- Quick overview of Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0 CLI commands
- 4.- Add the different tenants of Cloud Provider for each tenant
- 5.- Creation of the pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts with cPanel Backup
- 6.- Creating and programming the copy jobs of Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0
- 7.- Launch the copy jobs of Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0
- 8.- Checking as Service Provider that the Backups have been executed
- 9.- Access as tenant to the Backup files using Veeam Agent FLR Linux (File-level-recovery)
1.- Topology and brief explanation of the InfrastructureAs always, I would like to leave you with a diagram of how this Infrastructure and the data flow between cPanel, Veeam Cloud Connect and the tenants will look like: To make this whole environment work we'll have to have the following:
- A cPanel WHM license, and root access to shell. (We could also extra polarize this to a LAMP server with multiple workloads, etc, but it would be more manual)
- Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0 Server Edition - We will use the Server version as we want to create multitasks, one for each tenant, and of course make use of the pre-freeze and post-shaw scripts that will generate the backup of each tenant.
- A provider, or Veeam Cloud Connect providers, you can have a look at the list here - https://www.veeam.com/find-a-veeam-cloud-provider.html
Greetings friends, I have already told you about my recent migration to Microsoft Office 365, after many years in other technologies the truth is that moving to Microsoft Office 365 is a breath of fresh air, today I want to show you those features that have surprised me for good and I am sure you will love if you migrate.
Start Menu - Quick access to AppsThe small welcome dashboard is greatly appreciated once you log in to Microsoft Office 365, with all the applications there, with the latest files edited and uploaded to OneDrive, the ability to upload new ones, and above all the ability to install desktop applications from here. Not only that, from any online application, we can click on the top left corner, where the 9 little squares, and we can see the shortcuts to all the applications too, it goes without saying that I use this every day.
Greetings friends, I continue with this very interesting series about Veeam and Microsoft Azure, we have already seen practically all the steps: from interconnecting Microsoft Azure with our Datacenter, deploying the VBR in Azure, launching the copy job jobs, and of course restoring Microsoft Azure, today I bring you how to bring those VM in Azure back to our Datacenter, as you can see in this illustration:
Greetings friends, we saw the other day how to configure Veeam Locations in our virtualization environment, Cloud providers and in our Backup elements. Today I bring you the next step, to be able to show you a report of all this that we have configured in a granular and simple way, and in PDF!
Veeam ONE Reporter - Data Sovereignty OverviewThe first thing we will do is to go to the URL of our Veeam ONE Reporter, remember https://veeamonefqdn:1239/ if we are in the Veeam ONE itself via RDP we will see an icon for quick access:
Greetings friends, with the upcoming launch of GDPR, many of the companies that use Veeam or service providers using Veeam are facing many new challenges, in this Blog I will not discuss all the challenges that a regulation like GDPR has, but how Veeam can help. Since the release of Veeam Backup & Replication v9.5 U3, Veeam has included a new feature called Locations, which will help us with the task of marking infrastructure elements and backup elements, so that we can visualize all this later. When we are performing Veeam tasks once we have the Locations configured, we will be able to see a warning in the jobs that will allow us to check if we are not sending backups to sites where the new regulation does not allow. The elements that we can assign Locations are the following:
- Elements in Virtual infrastructure: vCenter Servers, datacenters, clusters and hosts.
- Backup infrastructure elements: backup repositories, scale-out backup repositories, tape libraries and tape vaults.
- Elements in Agent management: protection groups.
- Veeam Cloud Connect for service providers: cloud repositories and hardware plans.
Configuring Veeam Locations in Veeam Backup & Replication v9.5 U3As mentioned before, we will need Veeam Backup & Replication v9.5 U3 or higher to configure the Locations. We will go to Home - Inventory and click on Locations:
Greetings friends, I continue with the series of blogs about how to move workloads from our Datacenter to Microsoft Azure, what we are going to see today is how to recover those backups that we have released in the previous series, using directly the functionality called Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure:
Greetings, I continue with the series on Veeam and Microsoft Azure, let's remember the diagram of the introduction where we presented the workflow. What I'm going to show you today, step by step, is the configuration in our Veeam Backup & Replication Server of our datacenter.
