What's new?

Amazon EFS support

Amazon Elastic File Systems (Amazon EFS) can be protected using flexible policy-based scheduling and lightning-fast recovery to an exact point-in-time in just seconds to the original location or to a new location. Benefit from backup copies across AWS accounts and regions and protect yourself against outages caused by failures and disasters that affect the availability of file systems that are in the same location.
 

Amazon S3 Glacier and S3 Glacier Deep Archive Storage Class support

Backup administrators can now automatically tier Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) backups to Amazon S3 Glacier and S3 Glacier Deep Archive Storage for the most cost-effective long-term retention and compliance of AWS data.
 

AWS KMS support

Starting from this version, backup administrators can now use the AWS Key Management Service to encrypt backed-up data. This improves security and control over the keys and passwords used by the backup policies.
 

Standalone AMI deployment

Veeam Backup for AWS can now be installed using the AMI deployment method. By utilizing either automatic or manual installation mode, you can customize the installation to your company's needs. This feature is also fully supported via the RESTful API, making it easy to automate the deployment.
 

Other Enhancements

UI and UX

  • Updated login screen — The updated login screen modernizes the look and feel of the solution.
  • Full page wizards — Some wizards were updated to full-screen size to optimize the process of settings configuration.
  • Improved wording of error messages and notifications — Updated texts should help users better understand the potential reasons for issues or misconfigurations in order to resolve them without contacting technical support.
  • Add to policy — Speed up policy configuration by easily adding missing resources to existing policies straight from the resources view.
  • Export missing permissions — Export any missing IAM role permissions to JSON format when using custom IAM roles to ensure everything will work as required.

Backup and Recovery

  • Support for multiple security groups — It is now possible to restore multiple security groups at once while restoring Amazon EC2 or Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) instances.
  • Preserve the original private IP for Amazon EC2 instances — While restoring an Amazon EC2 instance to the original location, it is now possible to preserve the original private IP.
  • Restore Amazon EC2 instances without public IP — Starting from this version, it is possible to restore any Amazon EC2 instance to a new location without a public IP.

Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication

(Requires Veeam Backup & Replication v11a plug-in.)

  • Visibility into new workloads — Amazon EFS policies are now also visible in the backup console. This allows backup administrators to have a single data protection view across on-premises and public cloud infrastructures.
  • Backup appliance update — Backup administrators now have the ability to update managed appliances remotely. This enables better management and better security for the entire infrastructure.
  • Improved logging — Technical support logs have been enhanced to streamline the support experience for Veeam users.
