Greetings friends, as many of you know Veeam includes for free Veeam Enterprise Manager in the Enterprise or Enterprise Plus editions. Veeam Enterprise Manager is a web portal that administrators, or delegated users, can access to perform different recovery operations, or for example create DataLabs requests as well. I decided to create this Blog to cover all the operations we can do from Enterprise Manager, since it has so many that it really looks like a Swiss Army Knife, let's go!
Administration, management and execution of the Works of VeeamOnce we connect to our Veeam Enterprise Manager, we can see the option called JOBS, from here we can perform several operations, let's see them all.
Start, stop, retry and advanced options of Veeam jobs.From here we will be able to launch the works of Copy, or Replica, or SureBackup, etc. Also stop them and retry them:
Greetings friends, I haven't written much about Veeam Availability Orchestrator yet, and that's going to change soon, today I start with an advanced entry and later we'll come back with the basics. One of the amazing things Veeam Availability Orchestrator allows us is to include additional steps in our Disaster Recovery plan. Talking to a customer I said to him if he would like to receive Slack notifications when a job is running, and have a brief summary in Slack too once the job finishes, of course he loved the idea, today we'll see the steps necessary to get it up and running.

Greetings friends, I have been lucky enough to attend two of the three NimbleStorage Connect User Groups that have been held in the UK, the three cities chosen were Manchester, Bristol and London, in my case I have attended and presented in Bristol and Manchester. I have to thank the HPE people for inviting Veeam to these User Groups to have the opportunity to talk about the integration of Veeam and Nimble Storage, especially Nick Dyer, a fireproof Nimble Storage since its inception.
Some images of the NimbleStorage Connect User GroupsIn this tweet we can see the room in Bristol, with a full house and a luxurious location, we had the opportunity to see many interesting presentations, Roadmap of NimbleStorage and live demos of InfoSight: https://twitter.com/Nick_Dyer_/status/1052173364155035648 In London we had a massive attendance, with another absolute full room, in which I was lucky to see that 90% of attendees were already using Veeam together with Nimble Storage, so my presentation was more about good practices: https://twitter.com/jorgedlcruz/status/1052849995601326081
Greetings everyone, a few weeks ago Nick Furnell and myself did a live session about everything you want to know about Backup in 60 Minutes or less. Having a data backup and recovery plan is important to the overall success of your business. Without one, your business can suffer from permanent data loss, massive downtime, and unnecessary expenses. Even if you think your data is safe, a tragedy can strike at any time. Watch this recording of the whiteboard and learn everything you always wanted to know about backup. I hope you find it interesting, and feedback it is always welcome.
Greetings friends, for years the question of whether we can use our QNAP as Linux repositories in Veeam has been formulated on numerous occasions, in forums, in person, exhibitions, etc.: This process is not officially supported by Veeam, since Veeam recommends in the different KB certified with QNAP, to use CIFS or iSCSI with QNAP:

How to install the Perl module in QNAP using the App CenterQNAP includes the Perl module since a long time ago inside its App Center, if you don't have it, make sure you are running the latest QNAP Firmware:
Greetings, a few months ago I had the chance to present a Veeam webinar around Veeam SureBackup, which mentions all the benefits of the DataLabs and the power of this technology, you can watch now this one hour webinar and learn much more about SureBackup. Applications like SQL, Active Directory and Exchange are driving our business nowadays. So, keeping critical applications available is a crucial part of DR planning for companies. But how can we ensure that our backups are tested and our recovery plan will work?
- Why are you backing up your data
- How are you sure a backup is good and recoverable
- How to set up automated backup testing with Veeam® SureBackup®
- And much, much more!
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
