Countdown to v7 – Built-in WAN Acceleration

Posted by Doug Hazelman (VMDoug)

Today we announced 2 disruptive innovations that will be available in Veeam Backup & Replication v7: Built-in WAN Acceleration and Backup from Storage Snapshots.

Over the past few months, you may have seen our announcements regarding the 7 new market-leading features coming in v7; if not, you can check them out here: http://go.veeam.com/v7.

There is tremendous interest in v7, and I wanted to offer some additional explanation here about our Built-in WAN Acceleration.

Built-in WAN Acceleration

Yes, we’re going to be including WAN acceleration in Veeam Backup & Replication v7. This is not a “general purpose” WAN accelerator, but functionality specifically tuned for Veeam data transfers across the WAN. The major benefit to start is that if you need to “copy” your backups ...

InfoGraphic–Veeam at VMworld

Posted by Rick Vanover

VMworld is right around the corner! Ready or not, it’s almost here. We at Veeam have been working hard to prepare for the event. We thought we’d also make a nice way to get an “at-a-glance'” view of the event, so we’ve created this handy InfoGraphic to view all the Veeam activities at VMworld.

Want to re-use this InfoGraphic? The raw image is here: http://vee.am/vmworldinfographic2012

Availability, performance and intelligence by proxy

Posted by Rick Vanover

When version 6 of Veeam Backup & Replication was released, there were scores of new and improved features! In fact, I had a blog post last year enumerating 72 of them! We are now on version 6.1, and while the features keep rolling in, an astute user pointed something out to me at a recent Veeam User Group Meeting in Chicago related to proxy configuration for both backup and replication jobs.

Introducing V-index

Posted by Doug Hazelman (VMDoug)

Today marks the launch of Veeam’s latest community effort, the V-index. I’m very excited about this new offering as it gives the virtualization community access to a number of data points on the growth and adoption of virtualization. All of the research is conducted by Vanson Bourne, an independent company that Veeam has contracted to do the virtualization surveys. Please understand that the survey results are not those of just Veeam customers, Vanson Bourne has their own contact list of companies that they use for these surveys.

From the site:
