Today is a BIG DAY for our flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication. Nine years ago, on Feb. 26, Veeam Backup & Replication was first introduced at VMworld Europe 2008 and made generally available on March 3, 2008. Let's take a look at the journey we've been on for all these years!
New Orleans, Louisiana will be hosting VeeamON 2017, the world’s premier Availability event, from May 16 – 18. Not only will you get the latest in data Availability innovations, but you’ll have the chance to interact with industry leaders around the world, attend breakout sessions held by Veeam experts and listen to what industry-renowned speakers have to say. VeeamON 2017 will take place in a special location. New Orleans is a unique blend of cultures that has so much to offer. I hope you’ll plan your agenda in such a way that you’ll have the chance to enjoy the Big Easy. Today, I will share with you several attractions that will definitely make your stay in New Orleans unforgettable.

Veeam has a great relationship with Microsoft and, as a result, we have many industry-leading data protection options for Microsoft solutions. But what about heterogeneous environments? Many customers run a mixture of open source technologies and Microsoft technologies. Veeam Backup & Replication is agnostic as to the operating system running in a virtual machine, but specific features such as Application-aware Image Processing (AAIP) and File-Level Restore (FLR) must interact with the guest OS. That’s where our continued enhancements ensure that your environments are protected across a broad array of technologies.

With the release of Veeam Backup & Replication v8 in 2014, Veeam redefined the way in which businesses of all shapes and sizes could extend their system and data Availability strategies to consume backup offerings from trusted service providers, with the launch of Veeam Cloud Connect Backup. Veeam Cloud Connect was made available for all Veeam customers who now had the ability to engage with a number of Veeam Cloud & Service Provider partners worldwide directly from their Backup & Replication console and configure offsite backup repositories to which virtual machines could be sent to over a secure internet connection, redefining the 3-2-1 rule of backups (three copies of data, on two types of media, one of which is off-site).

It’s been a while since we published the last technical poster about Veeam technologies but please don’t be sad as I’m going to fix that right away!

Let me introduce you to a radical update to Veeam recovery scenarios technical poster. People constantly bugged me asking when we’ll have an update and I’m happy to report that the poster has been completely revised and now you can download its updated version, highlighting 57 recovery scenarios possible with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5.

I’ve heard about the "Ransomware as a Service" concept before and it was a big eye opener to me in regards to the real level of threat we could be facing soon. And last week, I found this blog post that went into detail about RaaS and new threats. Take some time to read it, because I think RaaS will change IT as we know it.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a very popular CRM application across many customers, both large and small. A critical workload application such as CRM must have a good backup strategy.

The good news is that you can protect your CRM infrastructure using Veeam backup, and setting up Veeam replication is an easy process. It is also very easy to deploy. When it comes time to recover, Veeam can offer several options, depending on the SLA in place.

Whether you’re planning to join the world of cloud computing or already taking advantage of its benefits, there are some great options available when it comes to being able to protect your data in the cloud. As you look into cloud data protection, it’s important to know exactly why it makes sense for so many organizations and be aware of the use cases of existing cloud users.

In “The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing,” Peter Mell and Timothy Grace point out that there are four types of clouds: Private, public, community, and a hybrid mix of at least two of these. If you are thinking “What is a community cloud?” then I encourage you to go back and read the NIST paper. It’s really short and succinct, and your personal cloud vocabulary will be better for it. The vast majority of business will end up using their own private clouds and interfacing with various public cloud offerings from their partners. Availability seems to fit just perfectly as a hybrid cloud opportunity.
