Veeam and PernixData: vPower on steroids!

I’ve always been a fan of PernixData since the day I first learned about them at Storage Field Day 3 more than a year ago. I’ve always been in touch with them afterwards, visited their offices in San Jose, and I was also accepted into their PernixPro program. Thanks to the program, I got the opportunity to test with some advance the new release of PernixData FVP 2.0, and a couple of new enhancements seemed to me like a perfect fit for an integration with Veeam Backup & Replication.

Change all your Veeam backup jobs to the new forward forever-incremental

When you upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication to V8, you have available the new Forward forever-incremental mode for your backups. This is the default method for all newly created jobs, but the already existing backup jobs are not changed, because we do not want to change the user experience or create issues to I/O profiles, backup windows and such.
This great powershell script will take all your existing forward incremental backup jobs and reconfigure them to use the new forward forever-incremental mode.
