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.

My adventures with Ceph Storage. Part 10: Upgrade the cluster

As any existing software, Ceph is subject to minor and major releases. My entire series of posts has been realized using version Giant (0.87), but by the time I completed the series, Hammer (0.94) was released. Note that Ceph, as other linux softwares, uses a major release naming scheme based on the letter of the alphabet, so Giant is the 7th major release. Ceph releases both minor and major versions of the software, so it’s important to know how to upgrade it.
