Announcing Veeam Backup™ for Linux

Veeam announced Veeam Backup™ for Linux on Tuesday October 27 at VeeamON.

Veeam Backup for Linux is a FREE standalone agent that delivers backup and recovery for Linux servers running in the public cloud, or on premises.  It is only targeted for those type of Linux servers as on premise virtual Linux machines are already fully supported by Veeam Backup & Replication.

Below is a graphic depicting how you can backup from physical or cloud Linux and the capabilities:
