ESG Lab Report: Veeam Backup & Replicationby Veeam Software
Published on: 07/08/2011
Organizations have enthusiastically adopted server virtualization and continue to expand their implementations beyond test and development into production and mission-critical applications.

Virtualizing tier-1 applications magnifies the importance of enabling quick recovery of virtual machines (VMs).
