VeeamON 2017 conference is jsut finished (remain the final big party, but the rest of the event is really finished). It was a great event in an interesting location (unusual for the IT conference), at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center at New Orleans (Louisiana) during May, 16-18 2017.

During those days there were several announces of new products and new features. I’ve already covered the news related with the v10 of the Availability Suite (that means Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE).

But there where also other news…

Veeam Availability for AWS

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is becoming a popular choice for customers of all sizes. However, it is customer’s responsibility to protect and recover their applications and data running in AWS. As more mission-critical applications are deployed in AWS the need for enterprise-class data protection and Availability solution is increasing.

Veeam Availability for AWS (delivered through a Veeam – N2WS strategic partnership) is the industry’s first cloud-native, agentless backup and Availability solution designed to protect and recover AWS applications and data helping enterprises reliably move to and manage a Multi-Cloud or Hybrid Cloud environment. This solution mitigates the risk of losing access to your applications and ensures protection of your AWS data against accidental deletion, malicious activity and outages.

Included in Veeam Availability for AWS:

  • Cloud-native, agentless backup and recovery using native AWS snapshots eliminating complexity and dramatically improving recovery SLAs;
  • Mitigate risk of downtime and data loss for your AWS workloads by decoupling data and storing backups independently from the underlying AWS infrastructure;
  • Take full advantage of powerful and reliable recovery technologies to achieve industry-leading RTOs including instant recovery, granular file and application recovery.

Actually during the show I’ve seen a demo of the N2W product, but will be interesting the final product and how will be integrated with Veeam products (the interface is totally different)

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, previously announced and being made generally available today at VeeamON 2017. This solution extends Veeam “Always-On Cloud” Availability Platform to public cloud and physical servers. It builds upon the success of Veeam Endpoint Backup — a product which has been downloaded over one million times since April 2015. This new solution offers features and capabilities designed to ensure Availability for Windows-based physical servers, workstations and endpoints, as well as Windows workloads running in public clouds including Microsoft Azure, AWS and other.

Not only the v1.5 has been announced, but also the future support for SharePoint docs and OneDrive for Business in v 2.0.

Veeam Cloud and Service Provider Directory

The Veeam Cloud and Service Provider Directory is a FREE online platform where Veeam customers and partners can find a cloud and service provider in their area who offers hosted services using Veeam products. The directory provides complete visibility and direct connections that can fuel revenue growth.
