Veeam Agent for Linux is now Available
Even though Veeam has made a name for itself with industry-leading, agentless backup solutions for virtualized environments, we are still constantly asked about backing up non-virtualized systems. Based on feedback and as a growth opportunity, we decided to launch Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows (formerly known as Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE). Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will be available soon and it includes many top-requested features! We were also constantly asked about Linux systems, so we finally announced Veeam Agent for Linux and launched a beta.
Today, we are excited to announce that Veeam Agent for Linux is generally available!
Before we dive into the product itself, let’s discuss why a company like Veeam that makes agentless backups, decided to start making agent-based products. As you may know, not every workload can be virtualized due to hardware dependencies, heavy loads on servers or for other reasons. Then there are the Linux machines in the public cloud that need an agent to interact with them.
Long story short, agentless backups are superior for virtualized environments, but when it comes down to a physical server, agents are preferred.
