VMware vSAN File Services and Veeam

In February 2020, Veeam introduced enhanced NAS backup with the launch of Veeam Availability Suite v10. NAS functionality has increased in popularity as amounts of unstructured data (e.g. videos, photos, presentations, webpages) have increased. Managing disparate NAS devices and the vast amount of data residing on them has brought additional challenges for businesses, especially when you take into consideration the size of files from data sources such as surveillance video, medical records and barcode images. A major consideration for Veeam when deciding how to provide customers the best possible backup and recovery capabilities was not only how to support the uses cases for NAS today, but also what these large unstructured datasets might look like in the future.
