Veeam will showcase this new data protection capability live for the first time during VeeamON 2024, taking place June 3-5, 2024, at the Diplomat Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and online.

Veeam Data Platform gives users even greater freedom of choice to best fit changing business needs for both virtualization and cloud. Key highlights of Veeam’s Proxmox VE support include:

  • Immutable backups: Keep on-premises and cloud backups of Proxmox VE VMs safe and protected from encryption by ransomware, accidental deletions, or malicious destruction during cyberattacks with storage-based immutability. Or, leverage native support for tape and for rotated drives to achieve true airgap at the lowest possible cost.
  • Uncompromised backup performance: Powered by advanced changed block tracking (CBT) integration and hot add backup mode, Proxmox VE users can now enjoy faster and more efficient virtual machine (VM) backups, minimizing disruptions from long-running backups and ensuring smooth day-to-day operations. 
  • Veeam BitLooker: By automatically excluding unused disk blocks, such as those belonging to deleted guest OS files, this intelligent feature significantly enhances backup performance while conserving valuable storage space.
  • Storage flexibility: Support for all Veeam Backup & Replication® backup repository types including hardened repositories and object storage, empowers customers to easily create backup repositories from any storage that suits their RTO/RPO requirements and budget. 
  • Freedom of full VM recovery: VMs from key virtualization platforms such as VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or public cloud can be promptly restored to Proxmox VE – and the other way around too, reducing downtime and maximizing productivity. 
  • Advanced granular recovery capabilities: Effortlessly identify and quickly recover all changed and deleted files, due to a ransomware attack for example, ensuring business continuity and peace of mind in the face of unexpected data loss or unplanned disruption.
