How reliable are your virtual machine backups?
Every day you run your nightly backups and receive a successful message, but have you ever wondered if you can really restore from the backups?
You could test your backups on extra equipment you have around the office but this requires a lot of work to setup and you need to be very careful not to bring up a duplicate virtual machine in your production environment.
With Veeam SureBackup, you can bring up your backed-up virtual machines in an isolated lab environment on the same equipment as your production environment. SureBackup creates an isolated lab, powers on the backed up virtual machine on your backup appliance, runs canned or home grown test scripts on the virtual machine and then notifies you how the test went. After all the tests have completed, the lab is powered down or you can leave the virtual machines up and running to allow for performing additional tests. This whole process is easily automated and scheduled so you could perform a test every night, every week, or whatever meets your requirements.
