I wrote another book! This time, about Veeam Availabiliy Console

If you are subscribed to this blog via RSS, you may have noticed that May and June have been two empty months in terms of writing, and tobe honest the entire 2019 has not been so prolific as usual. This is because I worked, and I’m still working, on some large projects that took a big chunk of my time. I’m still writing these days, but the outcome is coming out in big pieces instead of weekly posts. The first one is this, about Veeam Availability Console.

Veeam Availability Console series #1: Installation and initial configuration

As Veeam is soon to release the final version of a new solution, called Veeam Availability Console, I started to study this software, since it’s a key component of Veeam strategy for Service Providers, which is my main focus as a Veeam employee. In this series of posts, I will explore the software, its architecture, how it works, and what can be done with it. In this first post, we’ll start with a bit of theory, and we’ll see how to install and configure it.

Scale-Out Backup Repository is coming in Veeam Availability Suite v9

A new species of Backup Repository is coming from Veeam: Scale-Out Backup Repository. With it, users will be able to simplify backup job management, improve backup performance, and spend less on backup storage. Veeam’s new Scale-out Backup Repository delivers these benefits by providing an abstraction layer over individual storage devices, effectively creating a single virtual pool of backup storage to which you can assign backup jobs, and offering the freedom to easily extend capacity as needed by simply adding additional storage devices into the existing pool.

Veeam Availability Suite v9, how many Storage Enhancements!

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.
