Outline's Favorite Feature

Veeam One

Veeam Backup Essentials, in large part to the Veeam One management tool, offers users a highly interactive and configurable view of their backup strategy.


Outline loves being able to see a breakdown of storage repositories based on location and available space. We’re confident businesses that prioritize granular control over their backups will appreciate Veeam’s detailed configurations and ability to maximize storage costs.
