Veeam announced today that the storage plug-in for Pure Storage arrays has been made Generally Available (GA). I’ve been waiting for this for a while and am absolutely delighted that it has gone GA, and that it is the second of the storage plug-ins to make it to market. I decided that similar to the Infinidat article that I published a few weeks ago, it would be worth showing how to deploy this plug-in.
Step One is to download the software. In my case I’ve decided to go through https://my.veeam.com in order to accomplish this. Continue reading “Pure Storage Plug-in for Veeam”
As part of a discussion with a potential client I went through some of the benefits of using Veeam Enterprise Manager across their environment. After that discussion I thought it would be interesting to get some background on where EM can be used and why, and then go through the initial installation process.

Typically it is a first step in with Mail, and maybe as far as SharePoint and OneDrive. In a few advanced deployments this has included Dynamics Online as well.
I’ve seen Office365 deployments, and worked with a few as well however to continue with my home lab I decided to deploy an O365 Mail instance rather than Exchange On Premise.
The first step was to set up a free trial account with some users. This really couldn’t have been easier. After finding the registration link it was a case of adding the details where required and then I had a working email account and Admin portal. I added some additional users and I was done. For an admittedly small and simple deployment it took around 15 minutes to set up and have working. Continue reading “Protecting Office365 with Veeam”
Veeam has the ability to connect to numerous Cloud and Service Providers globally built right into the console. You can select an SP based on the type of service that you would like, either Backup-as-a-Service or Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), and how much you want to pay for that service. Once selected it as simple as the Service Provider giving you three items, a URL or IP address to connect too, and a username and password to access the Service.
