What’s new in Veeam Availability Suite 9.5?
This latest release of Veeam Availability Suite offers customers the ability to manage and protect ALL workloads — virtual, physical, cloud — from a single Veeam pane of glass. It also features new strategic partnerships and storage integrations with IBM Spectrum Virtualize and Lenovo Storage V Series to lower RTOs and RPOs, plus new data management, analytics and compliance reporting for physical and cloud-based workloads.
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 9.5, you must be running 9.5 of both products.
Is there any difference in price between the VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V versions of Veeam Availability Suite?
No. Veeam maintains price parity across hypervisors, which also facilitates the ability 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.
What licensing and installation details are required to manage Linux-based and Windows-based Agents from Veeam Availability Suite?
Utilization of agent management functionality requires the installation of the redistributable package of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.1 or later, and/or Veeam Agent for Linux v2 or later, with Veeam Backup & Replication.
