Yesterday, Veeam released Veeam Agent for Linux! Veeam Agent for Linux is a tool that backs up physical Linux systems such as a workstation, a server or machines in the public cloud. This tool creates image-based backups that are stored in .VBK format, the same as in Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows (should be available early January). Veeam Agent for Linux comes with it’s own snapshot and “Change Block Tracking” (CBT) driver that allows for creating incremental backups without rescanning. Basically, I participated in a live webcast in french with Veeam France for presenting new Veeam Availability Platform and main features of Veeam B&R 9.5. The goal was also to introduce you new Veeam Agents for Linux and Windows.

Veeam Agent for Linux use requirements include:
Veeam Agent for Linux allows you to protect your on-premises Linux systems or the systems in the public cloud. It is a standalone product that doesn’t require Veeam Backup & Replication, although it can leverage its backup repositories.
