Veeam is consistently building on its promise of delivering a true Cloud Data Management platform, and these releases are packed full of capabilities to help natively protect Microsoft Azure workloads.

Azure Files backup made easy!

It never ceases to amaze me how rapidly Microsoft Azure continues to bring capabilities to market, and the latest example of NFS 4.1 support for Azure Files is no exception.

Why we chose WireGuard® for Veeam PN v2

In 2017, Veeam PN was released as part of Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure.
