Backup Hyper-V Server
Veeam Backup& replication offers complete integration with Hyper-V. It is therefore not necessary to install an agent to recover data from a VM. Backup is performed using Microsoft VSS Snapshot and checkpoint features. When the backup is launched, Veeam Backup requests that a snapshot of the VM be created. This copy becomes the data source for backup. During the first backup, a full backup is performed, thereafter these backups will be of incremental types.
