Several weeks ago Microsoft approached Veeam asking us if we would be supporting Hyper-V, especially their R2 release which RTM'ed just the other day. Of course Veeam's strategy is to support Hyper-V, we just hadn't announced it publicly yet. Micosoft was kind enough to allow me a guest blog spot on their virtualization blog to make the announcement. Veeam will be making additional announcements on this blog discussing our Hyper-V strategy in more detail in the coming weeks, we're very excited to be entering this new era of virtualization.
Veeam’s tagline is “listening to you, building the tools you need.” We’ve heard your requests and we’d like to announce now that Veeam is committed to fully supporting Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. While Veeam has continued to build some of the best software for data protection and management of VMware infrastructures, we realize that customers are now faced with more virtualization choices. By fully supporting Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, Veeam can help you manage heterogeneous hypervisor deployments and clouds with the innovative solutions you’ve come to expect from Veeam. The management and R&D teams at Veeam have a long history of working with Microsoft going back to the Aelita days, and we’re all excited to be working with Microsoft again.
