VeeamOn 2017 – The unofficial recap of the official recap!

#VeeamON 2017

NEW Veeam Availability Suite v10 drives business continuity and agility to new levels:

Built-in Management for Veeam Agent for Linux and Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

Reduce management complexity and improve usability through the direct integration of agent management, enabling users to manage virtual and physical infrastructures through the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

NAS Backup Support for SMB and NFS Shares

Maintain Availability through the expansion of Veeam’s protected data footprint with file-level backup support for Network Attached Storage (NAS) for SMB and NFS shares. Support includes scalable SMB/NFS backups, flexible data protection through short and long-term retention policies and out-of-place restore to easily restore SMB/NFS files to any target.

Scale-Out Backup Repository — Archive Tier

Save primary backup repository space and minimize costs while maintaining compliance with the addition of an archive tier for Scale-Out Backup Repository™. The new archive tier will deliver storage-agnostic support by enabling the archiving of backups to any storage or media, deliver backup data management by automatically moving the oldest backup files from primary storage to archive extents and provide broad cloud object storage support.

Veeam CDP (Continuous Data Protection)

Preserve critical data during a disaster and ensure the Availability of tier-1 VMs with VMware-certified continuous data protection to reduce RPOs from minutes to seconds, as well as leverage VMware’s VAIO framework to reliably intercept and redirect VM I/O to the replica without a need to create standard VM snapshots.

Additional enterprise scalability enhancements

To save businesses valuable time and improve overall scalability, v10 will additionally feature several enterprise scalability enhancements including role-based access control to establish self-service backup and restore functionality for VMware workloads based on vCenter Server permissions and Oracle RMAN integration, allowing users to seamlessly stream RMAN backups into Veeam repositories and easily perform UI-driven restores from backups using a Veeam console.

Primary Storage Integrations — Universal Storage Integration API

Extend Availability and improve recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) through primary storage integrations with leading storage providers through a universal plug-in framework enabling select partners to build integrations with Veeam Backup & Replication. New integrated storage solutions based on the API include IBM Spectrum Virtualize (IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) and the IBM Storwize family), Lenovo Storage V Series and INFINIDAT.

DRaaS Enhancements (for service providers)

Service providers can help tenants minimize costs and reduce recovery times during a disaster with new Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) enhancements including vCloud Director integration for Veeam Cloud Connect Replication and Tape as a Service (TaaS) for Veeam Cloud Connect Backups.

Plus much more!
