Yesterday there was the biggest product announcement in Veeam history: the new availability platform. A new set of products and tools that provide availability spanning the data center/private cloud and the hybrid cloud, both for managed clouds (service prodivers) or public clouds.

Veeam-Availability-Platform

A big news is the shift from the virtual workload only (typical from Backup & Replication, although was possible have a limited handle of some physical workloads) to a complete solution also for physical environments or workload running on other virtualization platform (not managed by Veeam Backup & Replication) or public clouds.

Windows and Linux Endpoint has been renamed in agents (maybe, in may opinion managed endpoint was better, but “agent” is a clear term in the backup and data protection world) and now can not only save on a Veeam repository but can also be managed from a central point.

In this event there was also the announce of new important products:

  • Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 (with a lot of scalability enhancements, FULL integration with Microsoft 2016 data center technologies and much more)
  • Veeam Availability Console (a cloud-enabled platform for service providers and distributed enterprise environments)
  • Veeam Availability Orchestrator (built specifically for the enterprise, equips organizations with a disaster recovery orchestration engine for enterprise-scale management and control of Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Availability Suite)
  • Veeam Backup for Office 365 (big news and first cloud specific backup solution from Veeam)
