V11: Replication and IaaS management with Veeam + VMware Cloud Director

Veeam has always had a strong story with VMware Cloud Director. From releasing the first Self-Service Portal back in v7 of Veeam Backup & Replication through to the ability to have a VCD organization as a Cloud Connect Replication target site, Veeam has always offered value for our cloud and service providers using VCD. In V11, we have taken this a step further with the release of VCD-to-VCD replication and a fully supported HTML5 Tenant UI for deeper self-service. Read more

v10: The next iteration of Veeam Cloud Tier

With the release of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 in 2019, we introduced the Veeam Cloud Tier which enabled customers to take advantage of Object Storage.

Why we chose WireGuard® for Veeam PN v2

The Veeam PN use case went beyond the extending of Azure networks for workload recoverability and was quickly adopted by IT enthusiasts for use of remote connectivity to home labs and the connectivity of remote networks that could be spread out across cloud and on-premises platforms. Our development roadmap for Veeam PN had been locked in, however, we found that customers wanted more. Read more
