Veeam Backup & Replication question
I'm trialling Veeam to backup out Hyper-V servers, and I have a question. Is it actually backing up the whole server? Because it is incredibly quick, and a worlds difference from Altaro, which religiously backed up the entire VHD and took up a mountain of space.
I've attached a screenshot from a test backup - could I restore those servers to another host from that backup? It's so small, but is it just intelligent enough not to backup free space? Also plenty of compression and dedupe by the looks of ii.
If all is ok then I'm very happy :)
