NEW ORLEANS – Veeam Software opened its user conference with the launch of the latest version of its data protection software, moving deeper into cloud and physical device support.
Veeam Availability Suite v10 rolled out today at VeeamON adds continuous data protection, support for network-attached storage and native object storage. The object storage support includes data on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Veeam Availability Suite v10 frees up primary backup storage with policy-driven automated data management for long-term retention and compliance. The major upgrade to Veeam’s flagship product is in technical preview.
“V 10 takes [Veeam] to a multi-cloud world full speed,” said co-founder Ratmir Timashev. “V 10 is where everything comes together.”
Veeam Continuous Data Protection (CDP) replicates data to private or managed public clouds. The default recovery point objectives setting in Veeam Availability Suite v10 is 15 seconds. CDP is commonly found in data protection products, especially those emphasizing data recovery.
Other enhancements and features in Veeam Availability Suite include:
- Veeam Availability for AWS. Delivered through a partnership between Veeam and cloud backup and disaster recovery provider N2WS, the feature offers cloud-native, agentless backup and availability to protect and recover AWS applications and data. Availability for AWS is geared toward helping enterprises migrate to and manage a multi-cloud or hybrid cloud environment.
- Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. Veeam announced this feature in August, but it became generally available Wednesday. It is designed to provide availability for Windows-based physical servers, workstations and endpoints, as well as Windows workloads running in public clouds.
Veeam previously released its Agent for Linux, which provides availability for public cloud and physical workloads hosted by Linux-based servers and workstations running on premises or in the public cloud.
“You need an availability strategy that’s going to extend beyond your virtualized workloads,” John Metzger, vice president of product marketing, said during the general session at VeeamON Wednesday. “Protecting workloads is important, but ensuring availability of those workloads is critical.”
Veeam Availability Suite includes Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE.
General availability of Veeam Availability Suite v10 is projected for late 2017. Pricing is not available at this time.
Veeam earlier this week announced changes to its executive team.
