What is Veeam Availability Suite v9?
Veeam® Availability Suite™ combines the industry leading backup, restore and replication capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication™ with the advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity planning functionality of Veeam ONE™. Veeam Availability Suite delivers everything you need to reliably protect and manage your VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.
What’s new in Veeam Availability Suite v9?
Veeam Availability Suite v9 adds hundreds of new features to deliver recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of <15 minutes for ALL applications and data by enabling high-speed recovery, data loss avoidance, verified recoverability, leveraged data and complete visibility.
Can I get advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity planning for backup without purchasing Veeam Availability Suite?
These features are available only in environments where version 6.5 or higher of both Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE are deployed. To take advantage of all the integrated features in v9, you must be running v9 of both products.
Is there any difference in price between the VMware and Hyper-V versions of Veeam Availability Suite?
No. Veeam maintains price parity across hypervisors, which also facilitates being able to swap licenses between hypervisors for free.
What if my virtual environment includes both vSphere and Hyper-V?
You can purchase licenses for any mix of hypervisors. For example, you may purchase 10 sockets of Veeam Availability Suite for Hyper-V and 12 sockets of Veeam Availability Suite for VMware. You may also swap licenses between hypervisors on an individual socket basis, should you change hypervisor platforms at some future time.
