VeeamON is the big event from Veeam (actually only in the US) and VeeamON Tour is usually a smallest (one day) event around the world. But on November 22 there will be also a VeeamON Tour Virtual event: coming right to your desktop, an event on the future of Availability.

Veeam Backup & Replication v9.5 and Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 are finally in GA and available for the download!

During the last Veeam ON was announced a Veeam Backup for Linux systems (physical or virtual) with the main purpose to protect Linux workload on public cloud. But with the success of the Veeam Endopoint for Windows, this project has become a more general Veeam Backup program for all Linux workload (of course for virtual workload running on vSphere or Hyper-V you can simple use Veeam Backup & Replication).

Three months after the releasing of Veeam Backup & Replication v9, Veeam is start talking the next release, that seems to be v9.5 (so an intermediate version). Last week they have announced the first new major feature: a new storage integration with with Nimble Storage! This integration will complete the existing with EMC, HP and NetApp products (for primary storage) and confirm the rumor of a support not for a big name (at least not one of the biggest), but a promising new storage vendor.

Finally Veeam has released on the patches portal both Veeam Backup & Replication 9.0 Update 1 (build 9.0.0.1491) and Veeam ONE v9 Update 1 (build 9.0.0.2088). For Backup & Replication note that after installing the update, during the first start of the Veeam Backup Service, required modifications will be made to the configuration database automatically to optimize its performance. These modifications may take up to 10 minutes to complete. Please do not reboot the Veeam server, or attempt to stop the service during this operation.

Using Veeam Endpoint you learn a lot on how Microsoft VSS works and how you can solve problems when something stop or go wrong. Some months ago I’ve wrote about an issue in file exclusion (see Veeam Endpoint: unable to exclude files from shapshot). One week ago, Veeam Endpoint backup jobs goes in a yellow state again with this message: 05/01/2016 00:32:17 :: Unable to exclude files from snapshot: Shadow Copy Optimization Writer timed out (see Windows event log for more info).

Veeam Endpoint Backup 1.1.x may have an issue with Windows 10 machine updated with the latest big update. Windows 10 support has been introduced in version 1.1 and it works well, but after the Threshold 2 (or Fall Upgrade) some Veeam Endpoint Backup database files could be moved during the OS upgrade procedure. It’s not sure yet if all version are impacted or only Windows 10 coming from a previous major upgrade (Windows.old is normally used to keep a rollback for an in-place upgrade).
