The new Veeam Cloud Connect, now with replication services

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!

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.
