Say goodbye to lost data

Most companies are horrified at the prospect of losing data. Irrevocable data loss can lead to major disruptions in business processes and cost companies money.

But with the right backup solutions, companies can keep the risk of data loss to a minimum. Different backup solutions are used for different files and programs. The more applications a company has, the harder it is to keep an eye on the network and the easier it is for a backup to be overlooked. Sysadmins must therefore take all the necessary precautions to ensure they always stay informed of the status of backups.



Back up your VMs with Veeam

For many companies, virtual machines have long become an indispensable part of their IT infrastructure. These companies make use of solutions such as VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V for their virtualization environments. Veeam is ideal for backing up the virtual machines of manufacturers such as VMware and Microsoft (Hyper-V). Thanks to Veeam Backup & Replication, you can back up all the VMs in your network and restore them as needed.

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager is a management & reporting console that provides an overview of all the backups created with Veeam Backup & Replication. However, many admins find its built-in reporting feature to be lacking and the data delivered by Veeam to be somewhat thin.


Monitor all your Veeam backups with PRTG

PRTG Network Monitor is a powerful and user-friendly monitoring tool that lets you keep a constant eye on all your Veeam backups. PRTG offers an immediate overview of all the backup tasks in Veeam Backup Enterprise Monitor over the previous 24 hours. It also displays the number of successful jobs, failed jobs, and pending jobs, and jobs flagged with a warning.

PRTG comes with the preconfigured Veeam Backup Job Status Sensor, which allows you to set up your Veeam backup monitoring with just a few clicks and immediately see if your backups require action.

Thanks to PRTG, you no longer have to sift through every single email notification regarding your backups. Instead, you get a clear and simple overview that makes your job as a sysadmin all the easier.

The sensor Veeam Backup Job Status Advanced monitors the status of a specific backup running on Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager and allows a detailed look into individual backups.


 i How PRTG defines sensors

In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
