Veeam has realesed the Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 Update 2b (see KB 2024) that add several performance improvements in the update 2 of the product.

Note that Veeam Backup & Replication checks for updates automatically once a week (unless you have disabled that). This means that everyone who had not updated yet should get a notification within the next 10 days or so.

B&R 8.0 Update 2a was officially released at the begin of June, but there where a new critical issue in VDDK 6.0 that forced Veeam to rebuild the update code again, now as Update 2b, adding a workaround for a single specif issue:

This isse it’s another a corner case, it may results in B&R quietly creating unrecoverable backups for certain VMs, which previous versions of VDDK had no issues processing (see KB2042 for more information).

For other issues with vSphere 6.0 see: Native backup issues in vSphere 6.0.
