EOH Disaster Recovery as a Service:

Technical Details

High speed recovery

Instant VM Recovery

Recover a failed VM in less than two minutes.

With Instant VM Recovery, you can run any VM on VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V directly from the latest backup.

Veeam Explorers

The Veeam Explorers feature is integrated with several vendors’ software and hardware. This allows you to zero in on exactly what you need to recover and restore individual items directly from your backups.

Instant File-Level Recovery

Recover guest OS files and folders on the fly, directly from an image-level backup, without the preliminary step of extracting virtual disks. Recover files from Windows and Linux VMs, or any of the 17 supported guest file systems.

U-AIR (Universal Application-Item Recovery)

Recover items from ANY virtualised application without agents, additional backups or software tools. The U-AIR wizard helps you start our applications from the backup recovery point and extract what you need with native application tools — no special backup agents or additional licence fees required.

Guest OS File Indexing and Search

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager enables you to search for guest OS files in VM backups and restore them with one click. Veeam Backup & Replication™ creates an index of VM guest OS files and allows users to search for Windows guest files in the VM backups. Once you find the file you need, you can immediately restore it with one click, either to its original location or can download it to a local machine.

1-Click Restore

Simply find and restore files back to their original location without having access to file contents. You can use 1-Click Restore self-service recovery of VMs and guest files without the need for:

  • Direct network connection to the VM
  • User permissions on the host or VM
  • An agent in the VM

Backup and Recovery for vCloud Director (vCD)

Veeam extends support for vCD to include backups and restores of vCloud vApp and VM metadata and attributes using the VMware vCloud Director API. It also restores directly to the same or to a different vCloud Director deployment with support for fast-provisioning.

Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure

Veeam Restore to Microsoft Azure delivers cloud restore for Veeam backups to optimise resource allocation and minimize cost. The ability to restore backups directly to Microsoft Azure means you can optimise your resource allocation and leverage Microsoft Azure as an on-demand cloud data centre for DR, taking full advantage of Azure’s flexible and scalable cloud resources.

Data loss avoidance

Advanced Replication

Our replication features deliver:

  • Fast and secure cloud-based DRaaS.
  • Replication from backup files without impacting the production environment.
  • Failover plans for built-in orchestration that enable easy 1-click site failover.
  • Planned failover that facilitates data center migrations with zero data loss.

Built-in WAN Acceleration

Built-in WAN acceleration speeds up data transfer across the WAN up to 50x by utilising caching, variable block length data fingerprinting and TCP/IP protocol optimizations. Veeam’s built-in WAN acceleration does not require agents, special network setup requirements or the need to add bandwidth.

Veeam Cloud Connect

A fully integrated, fast and secure way to backup, replicate and restore from the cloud.

End-to-end Encryption

Backup data is secured with end-to-end AES 256 encryption — at source (during backup), in-flight and at rest — all without any negative impact on built-in compression and WAN acceleration. Even if you lose your password, you can still recover data from encrypted backup files without compromising security.

Verified Recoverability


Automatically test every restore point in every VM replica for recoverability. SureReplica validates data for consistency, checks replica configuration accuracy and tests it for complete reliability by running it to the required restore point in an isolated virtual lab.

Complete Visibility

Monitoring, Reporting and Capacity Planning

Veeam Availability Suite, provides complete visibility of the Veeam backup infrastructure and VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments through monitoring and alerting tools. You can discover and be alerted to issues and potential problems before they significantly impact operations.

This includes:

  • 24×7 real-time monitoring and alerting
  • Resource optimisation and configuration tracking
  • Capacity planning and forecasting
  • Chargeback and billing – complete visibility into IT costs

Enterprise Management

Veeam Enterprise Manager web client allows you to recover files and VMs quickly and easily, or delegate restore capabilities to empower select users to restore their own files and VMs.
