The VeeamON 2018 it’s in the books, but what’s happened during the event and which are the more exciting news?

First to all where is Veeam now? It was a leader for the SMB market, but now it’s a clear leader of the Enterprise market:

With 300.000 customers in May 2018!

Veeam has identified five stages on the journey to Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise:

  • Stage 1, Backup: Back up all workloads and ensure they are always recoverable in the event of outages, attack, loss, or theft.
  • Stage 2, Aggregation: Ensure protection and availability of data across multi-cloud environments to drive digital services and ensure the aggregated view of service level compliance.
  • Stage 3, Visibility: Improve management of data across multi-cloud environments with clear, unified visibility and control into usage, performance issues, and operations; data management begins to evolve from reactive to proactive, preventing any loss of data availability through advanced monitoring, resource optimization, capacity planning, and built-in intelligence.
  • Stage 4, Orchestration: Seamlessly move data to the best location across multi-cloud environments to ensure business continuity, compliance, security, and optimal use of resources for business operations. This requires an orchestration engine that enables enterprises to easily and non-disruptively execute, test, and document disaster recovery (DR) plans in a highly-automated fashion.
  • Stage 5, Automation: Data becomes self-managing by learning to back itself up, migrate to ideal locations based on business needs, secure itself during anomalous activity, and recover instantaneously. This stage brings new levels of automation to enterprise data management via a combination of data analysis, pattern recognition, and machine learning.

Veeam Backup & Replication v10

Probably not so much new news about it, considering that some features have already been implemented in v9.5. Will be interesting see when we will see the native AHV backup, and the NAS backup.

But there is something new, for example, Veeam DataLabs™ announce. Veeam DataLabs permit to use backup files or even replicas and run a copy of the instance in an isolated network to perform any task outside of the production environment. Also included, is the ability to leverage application-consistent storage snapshots from the many storage integrations vendors support today.

One of the big announcements at in case you missed it! Expanded AWS data protection with new DR and serverless options with

Considering also the last announce about the Agents for Unix and AIX, the support for Nutanix AHV, other specific backup for cloud services, this means 360° backup.
