Veeam Endpoint Backup Now Available for Free

Endpoint backup, while a necessary step toward business continuity and disaster recovery planning, is one that is easy to mishandle. With that in mind, the research and development team has gone out of their way in order to introduce their newest product, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE. Meant to serve as a simplified yet comprehensive solution to enterprise endpoint backup, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE is provided as a special gift to the IT community. As its name implies, the software is available completely free of charge. Moreover, there are no extraneous applications or purchases required in order to make the most of Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE.

Doug Hazelman, vice president of product strategy with Veeam, explained the need for Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, as he was quoted as saying: “Even in today’s highly virtualized environments, most endpoints remain physical and they need to be backed up. It’s no small problem. With more than 330 million Windows-based devices being shipped last year, that’s a lot of endpoints to protect. While availability solutions have evolved exponentially for the virtualized data center, endpoint protection has been somewhat ignored. With Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, IT professionals now have a simple solution for backing up endpoints. Plus, if the IT organization still has a few physical servers left in their data center, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE can help fill that gap.”

A number of industry professionals agree with the sentiments expressed by Hazelman, including Liz Conner, research manager with IDC. She was quoted as saying: ““Endpoint backup has been a difficult task for SMBs and individuals. With this new free tool, Veeam has introduced an interesting and elegant solution for both individuals looking to back up their own personal machines, or as protection for a small number of enterprise endpoints or even a few physical servers.”

Offering an incredibly straightforward approach, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE is the ideal solution for small companies with little to no capital funding, startup companies who are just making their presence known, datacenter managers and even individuals who wish to secure the data from their personal devices. Moreover, given the fact that the software was tested by nearly 20,000 beta users, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE offers the same amount of dependability, accessibility and reliability as Veeam’s own paid products.

Additional Free Products From Veeam

While Veeam’s Endpoint Backup FREE is certainly making headlines around the industry, it’s not the only software suite that is offered by the company at no cost. In fact, Veeam Backup Free Edition, which supports Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint and file snapshots from HP and NetApp, has been available to consumers for quite some time now. Other free applications include Veeam ONE Free Edition and Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V, though the last two programs have limited appeal to the average computer user.
