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:

In those days, there is the VeeamON 2018 event, from May 14 to 16, 2018 at the McCormick Place, Chicago. For sure will be a huge and successful event, as usual… considering also how the Veeam product’s portfolio has grow.

Veeam has started an interesting collaboration with Pure Storage some years ago, but probably the most notable collaboration was during the last Pure Storage Accelerate at San Francisco where both the companies have provided a compelling solution for businesses that are undergoing a digital transformation. The main intent was to provide a storage integration between Veeam Backup & Replication and Pure Storage. This integration was planned to be available early 2018 to provide businesses with the ability to leverage storage snapshots for significantly improved RPO and reduced infrastructure impact.

Finally Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO) is GA after a long period of beta. Veeam® Availability Orchestrator is design to provide organizations with a disaster recovery (DR) orchestration engine for Veeam Backup & Replication™, in order to simplify the disaster recovery plans in place, documenting, testing and executions. With VAO you can automatically create, document and test DR plans, fully-prepared for C-level executive and stakeholder signoff, proving compliance with industry regulations and audits.

If you are planning to backup a Microsoft Hyper-V cluster with Veeam Backup & Replication you may have some issues during the configuration of your environment. Compared to VMware vSphere backup where are defined some Veeam proxy on Windows machines (virtual or physical), in a Hyper-V backup, each Hyper-V node act also as a Veeam proxy!

When you add a Veeam proxy to the Veeam Backup infrastructure, in some cases you can have an error message like this: “Failed to create persistent connection to ADMIN$” And the proxy is not added to the infrastructure. There can be different reason, but the most common case occour when you have proxyes that are “workgroup only” and when you are using dedicated local accounts, and not the “Administrator” one. And you have Windows Server 2012 or later.

Veeam licenses software in a variety of ways depending on the specific product and/or use case you are interested in. This includes licensing by the number of CPU sockets on a managed server (or host), as well as by the number of VMs, physical servers, workstations, cloud instances and/or users being managed. We can summarize the different options (not all are available, it also depends on the product):

Veeam has just released a lot of new versions of its products, providing the strategic Availability and data management platform for customers of any size. Veeam Availability Platform supports any workload — virtual, physical or cloud — in multi‑cloud environments comprised of private, public, Software as a Service (SaaS) or managed clouds. For some products is just an updated version, but Veeam has started (with VBR 9.5) a continuous integration of new features (and some anticipations of new features of v10), so this list of new products it’s very interesting:

VeeamON is the big event from Veeam (actually only in the US) and VeeamON Tour is usually a smallest (one day) event around the world. But, like happened in the past year, on December 5 there will be also a VeeamON Tour Virtual event: coming right to your desktop, an event on the future of Availability.

Veeam Software has announced, during the last Nutanix .NEXT event, an expanded partnership with Nutanix  in which Veeam becomes the Premier Availability solution provider for Nutanix virtualized environments. What does it mean? First that Nutanix adds Veeam as a Strategic Technology Partner within the Nutanix Elevate Alliance Partner Program. But more important that Veeam will deliver support for Nutanix’s Hypervisor, AHV (maybe later this year, more realist in the next year).

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…

There are several news at the VeeamON 2017 event: during the first general sessions new products have been announced, but also the new features of Veeam Availability Suite v10 that will drive business continuity and agility to new levels by extending the ‘Always on Cloud’ Availability Platform to manage and protect. With v10, Veeam offers a complete end-to-end Availability and cross-cloud data management platform for enterprise customers by supporting any workloads (virtual, physical or cloud) on any infrastructure in Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Cloud environments (private, public, managed or SaaS).
