Hyper-V Isn’t Sexy, but it’s Free and it Just Works!

Posted by

Hyper-V has quietly moved into the hypervisor marketplace. I think the reason for the lack of pomp and circumstance around Hyper-V is that it doesn’t introduce some grand new sexy feature set that no one else in the market place has ever seen. Instead Microsoft gives every IT Pro and CIO what they really want, a free product that just works!

How is Hyper-V Free?

Windows Server 2012 R2 comes in a couple of different flavors, specifically Standard and Data Center Editions. There is NO functional difference between the editions! They both do the same things. The operating system, roles and features are exactly the same in each edition. They have the same feature sets, capabilities, options, everything. The only difference between ...

Announcing: Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE

Posted by

At Veeam, we believe the Modern Datacenter is based on virtualization. While we still see that some companies have a few remaining physical servers left, the majority are virtualized. However, a modern datacenter will still have certain physical devices. Most companies use physical workstations or laptops for their end-users to do their work and those devices have data on it that needs to be protected.

Because of that, we just announced a new product at our VeeamON conference today. Welcome Veeam Endpoint Backup Free!

Veeam Endpoint Backup Free is Veeam's new backup solution for Windows-based computers (desktops & laptops). It is a standalone product and is not part of Veeam Backup & Replication nor the Veeam Availability Suite.

VeeamON 2014 Day 1 Recap

Posted by

Many eyes in the technology world are on Veeam’s Premier Data Center Availability Event, VeeamON 2014, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada this week.

October 6, the first day of the conference, was dedicated to partners, and I’d say it was deeply nerdy and user-friendly at the same time. Personally, the energetic atmosphere was very different from other conferences I’ve ever attended. And the information was definitely interesting.

Making a long story short, there were three key takeaways from Day 1 I wanted to share with you today.

The art of the Active Full backup, made awesome with Data Domain Boost!

Posted by

When I heard that Data Domain Boost was coming in Veeam Backup & Replication v8, part of Veeam Availability Suite, I initially didn’t think much of it. After using the beta for a while now, I am very surprised how much the Active Full backup benefits from Data Domain Boost! Let’s dig into what I’m so excited about and how it works.

There are a number of new features I mentioned when I blogged about the new feature in June, but I use the Active Full backup a lot myself, and let’s explain how this works. It is true source side deduplication when data is coming into the Data Domain appliance. Blocks from the virtual disks of VMs that are ...
