v9 is HERE!

Posted by Doug Hazelman (VMDoug)

I am happy to announce that Veeam Availability Suite v9 is now generally available (GA) and ready for download! This latest version is packed with so many new features that it's difficult to talk about them all on this blog, but I highly recommend you check out the v9 What's New document because it's packed with details about all the new things we've up into v9 (read also What's New in Veeam ONE v9.)

Reliable backup is one of the foundations of availability.  When things go wrong, data can be lost.  The more data that is lost, the greater the potential business impact. Part of getting back up and running quickly is being able to restore operations to where they were before the problem started.  Sometimes, however, problems are not limited to a single occurrence.  Compounding of problems can put your backups at risk as well. 

2 weeks ago we proudly announced the general availability of Veeam Availability Suite v8.

An essential component of the suite designed to complement Veeam Backup & Replication is Veeam ONE.

Veeam ONE is a powerful monitoring, reporting and capacity planning tool for Veeam Backup & Replication, VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructures. It is a key component to helping maintain Availability for the Modern Data Center by providing complete visibility of your backup and virtual environments.

Today we are very pleased to announce the general availability of the Veeam Availability Suite v8! With this release we define the availability for the modern data center and bridge the availability gap known in many companies.

With focusing on 5 important pillars (High-speed recovery, Data loss avoidance, Verified protection, Leveraged data and Complete visibility) we deliver the next generation of data protection.

When we released Veeam Backup & Replication version 6, one of the big “what’s new” items was our enterprise scalability through our distributed architecture and automatic intelligent load balancing. The move to the proxy/repository architecture was a big one for us because previously all backup activities ran through a single backup server. There were several reasons for moving to this architecture…

Distribute backup processing across multiple proxy servers to make it easier for you to scale your B&R deploymentAchieve higher availability and redundancy: if a proxy goes down, another one can still complete the task – no more single point of failureReduce impact from backups on production infrastructure through intelligent load balancingDramatically simplify job scheduling (by automatically controlling the desired tasks ...

I am sure that many of you by now heard or read about the Heartbleed bug that has been in the IT news for a few days now. The Heartbleed bug is a serious vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This is a very popular used network software that many companies and services on the internet use for encrypting their services. Websites & online services such as Facebook, Tumblr, Google, Yahoo, Gmail, Yahoo mail,  Amazon web services, GoDaddy and many more use the affected OpenSSL version and therefore are sensitive for this bug.

Luckily it seems that the bug was discovered by security teams before malicious hackers were able to exploit this but the consensus remains that you ...

2013 is almost at an end and Veeam would like to take the opportunity to wish you the best holidays possible. We hope that you will have some time to enjoy these days with your loved ones and that you can charge your batteries for a new year that promises to be another exiting year in the IT world.

vSphere 5.5

If you’re registered on our forums then you’ve most likely seen the “Word from Gostev” that’s sent out every Sunday evening. A few weeks ago Anton pointed out an important requirement with vSphere 5.5. Starting with version 5.5, the vSphere API for Data ...
