Support for Universal Storage API v2, which enables the following additional functionality:
Snapshot replication orchestration – allows backup jobs to leverage existing Pure Storage FlashArray Replication relationships to create storage-based snapshot replicas as additional restore points. This also enables performing backup from secondary storage arrays, to avoid any load from backup activities on the primary storage array.
Snapshot archiving orchestration – allows backup jobs to manage the offload of volume snapshots to a different type of storage device via Pure Storage FlashArray Offload functionality and track them there as additional available restore points.
Synchronous replication support – allows backup jobs to create coordinated storage snapshots and track them as additional available restore points and perform backup from volumes on both sides on dual Pure Storage FlashArray ActiveCluster configurations that serve the same production volume from multiple storage management backends.
Also, processing of snapshot deletion attempts on arrays with SafeMode enabled no longer produces job warnings and doesn't lead to an increased Veeam Backup & Replication service load.
