      Comments about oreilly Learning Veeam® Backup & Replication for VMware vSphere:

      I've received this as a review title and it teaches the reader what you need to know and is very instructional and a great guide to start up a Veeam project.

      Starting of with a background understanding of backup concepts, from the start it seems to be a self teaching tutorial with walkthrough guides for the basic concepts and a great explanation for the more advanced topics, this book is a perfect match if you are starting up or investigating a backup solution for your virtual infrastructure.
      I've been working with Veeam for a bit the last couple of months and the book cleared a few concepts for me and also gave me ideas on how to make even more out of our current setup and what is needed of infrastructure to make this happen. Thumbs up to Christian Mohn for this title, which certainly will be near by when I'm messing around with the Veeam setup! :-)

          Comments about oreilly Learning Veeam® Backup & Replication for VMware vSphere:

          The target audience for the book is for vSphere administrators looking for an introduction to Veeam Backup & Replication v7. It's not intended to be a technical deep dive.

          When reading a technical book the logical flow from chapter to chapter is one of the key areas that I look for.

          The author starts with an introduction to Veeam including the architecture and components that make up the backup application. This leads onto configuring backups, restoring data, replicating virtual machines and finally other features.

          This logical flow makes the book enjoyable to read, and includes a couple of puns which placed a smile on my face!

          Throughout the book, the author gives common sense advice to his target audience, which includes:

          3-2-1 backup rule
          RPO/RTO definitions
          Backup Repository placement
          Considerations for installation/service accounts
          When to use incremental or reversed incremental backup types
          What happens when you restore a VM Guest file
          Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager use cases

          I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an introduction to Veeam Backup & Replication.
