Yesterday, Veeam made some announcements about their strategy as well as their product portfolio. Veeam is gaining market share rapidly given its plethora of features offered.
The announcements include:
- Veeam Availability Console/Platform
- Veeam Agents
- Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 features
- Sneak peek of v10
- New Products
The Veeam Availability Platform will tie up all the great features and products that Veeam is introducing, including Orchestrator, Availability Console, Availability Suite, etc.
One of the great features introduced in my opinion, was in regards to ReFS support. This advanced ReFS integration will allow for faster and reliable backups, reducing the backup time dramatically. Synthetic full backups using ReFS, use pointers to the original blocks rather than copying the changed blocks, reducing both storage needed and time for backups to complete.
Veeam Availability Orchestrator: Introduces DR orchestration via DR plans, automated testing, and reporting capabilities.
Veeam Availability Console: Gives Cloud Providers and Enterprises the ability to manage remote offices from a single console.
Veeam Agents: Wait, What? Yes, Veeam introduced agents in order to fulfill one of the most requested features. Being able to backup PHYSICAL Windows and Linux endpoints, workstations, and servers. You can backup directly to your cloud provider or your datacenter.
Veeam ONE 9.5: Now includes a chargeback capability for enterprises and service providers. This feature is available for VMware vSphere, VMware vCloud Director, and Microsoft Hyper-V.
Last, but not least. My favorite addition. Veeam can backup your O365 email to your datacenter. Nuff said…
