Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure v2 adds the following new features and enhancements:
Unify Azure backup and recovery with other cloud, virtual and physical workloads in Veeam Backup & Replication™. This will allow you to backup, recover and migrate data across any cloud, virtual or physical environment for seamless data protection, portability and management.
The policy wizard has been completely reworked for more streamlined usage as well as supporting many new features, including:
Enhanced application consistency ensures zero data loss protection for Azure VMs by using custom pre- and post-scripts in-guest for Windows and Linux instances, and/or VSS for Windows instances.
Custom tags can now be applied to workers via the RESTful API. These tags will be applied to every deployed worker within the infrastructure.
A new repository wizard allows you to select your storage account, container, folder and hot or cool Azure Blob storage tiers.
Communication enhancements between the controller and worker means networking is no longer required, resulting in less configuration between vNets of different Azure regions.
A notification bell is included, informing you of important notifications such as when new updates are available.
A new updater is included, making updates incredibly easy while giving you an overview of everything new that’s included in the update.
The manual snapshot wizard is renewed and now includes the possibility to copy the source tags as well as add additional tags of your own.
The time zone of the appliance can now be changed easily through the UI.
