Ten years ago, on Feb. 26, Veeam Backup & Replication 1.0 was introduced at VMworld Europe 2008. Then it was made generally available on March 3, 2008.

Veeam Backup & Replication v1 was designed with functionalities that are still the main pillars of Veeam Backup & Replication, such as instant file-level recovery, built-in deduplication, synthetic full backups and replication multiple restore points.

Originated from the FastSCP free product, as an efficient way to save VM’s related files, Veeam Backup & Replication has represented the first commercial product of Veeam, and probably the start of a new generation of backup, data protection and availability products.

FastSCP was still present as the core engine of Veeam Backup & Replication 1.0:

But after that there was several new versions during the last 10 years, making Veeam is THE CLEAR MARKET LEADER:
