During our announcement on Aug. 23, one of the announced changes is that new versions of Veeam Endpoint Backup which will be renamed Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. Veeam Agent for Linux 1.0 was already available, and now, after the public beta period, finally, Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0 is now in GA.

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is built on the extremely successful Veeam Endpoint Backup™ FREE and includes two brand new editions — Workstation and Server — with additional features designed to ensure the Availability of your Windows workloads by providing backup and recovery for physical and cloud-based workloads, as well as endpoint devices that belong to remote users.

  • And much more!
