The upcoming Veeam Availability Suite v9, among many new and exciting features, will bring more enhancements for Enterprise environments. Learn more about Guest Interaction Proxy, Mount Server, Standalone Console, and all the enhancements coming for tapes.
Last year, together with the release of the new Veeam Cloud Connect, I wrote and published its Reference Architecture. The paper had a great success with 1500 people downloading it. Because of the new additions in Veeam Backup & Replication v8 Update 2, it was time to upgrade the document.
The upcoming Veeam Availability Suite v9 has tons of enhancements and new features, but improvements around primary and backup storage will surely be one of the biggest parts of our next release.
We already announced a new addition in our list of supported storage arrays for our storage snapshots integration (EMC VNX/VNXe), but this isn’t the only storage news—on the contrary, there are plenty of them, and I’ll cover some of them in this post.
Last year, Veeam released Veeam Cloud Connect, a new technology that allows the easy creation and consumption of offsite backup repositories. It was the first solution specifically designed around Service Providers, both from a technical and business point of view. Its extreme ease of use and capabilities made it an instant success, and as of today several hundreds of service providers are offering offsite backup services based on Cloud Connect.
As a first generation technology, everyone was expecting additional capabilities in the following versions, and the most common request has always been “are you going to add replication capabilities?”.
As you can guess from the title of this post, that’s exactly what is coming in the next version!
As I promised few months ago, I was planning to repeat the Service Providers tour in other regions. Well, time has come, and has you are writing this post, I’m flying over Asia and the Indian Ocean towards Auckland, my first stop. We will hit also Melbourne and Sydney.
I’ve published a new whitepaper for Veeam, regarding Veeam Backup & Replication v8 and data protection for Oracle Environments.
