Veeam launches Backup & Replication v7

22 Aug 2013

Veeam Software has announced the immediate availability of Veeam Backup & Replication v7, in a bid to take Modern Data Protection to the next level.

The backup solutions provider says the solution introduces two disruptive innovations, Built-in WAN Acceleration and Backup from Storage Snapshots.

“More than 73,000 companies already rely on Veeam Backup & Replication, and in this new version, we’re setting the highest standard for Modern Data Protection,” says Ratmir Timashev, president and CEO, Veeam.

“Feedback drives our innovation and the response from users has been extremely gratifying.

"From reports of much faster offsite backup to improved RPOs to a host of benefits from other new features, Veeam Backup & Replication is once again answering market needs like no other solution.”

Developed by Veeam and optimised specifically for Veeam backups, Built-in WAN Acceleration copies data to offsite locations up to 50x faster than a regular file copy.

It also eliminates the need to purchase and deploy a general purpose WAN acceleration appliance or acquire additional network bandwidth for offsite backups.

“Even many of the enterprise-focused legacy backup solutions don't offer WAN acceleration embedded in their product,” says Rachel Dines, senior analyst, Forrester Research.

“Most organisations need to get copies of backups off site. The new feature Veeam is announcing makes that process much more efficient.”1

Developed in partnership with HP, Veeam says backup from storage snapshots dramatically improves recovery point objectives (RPO) and greatly reduces stress on the virtual infrastructure.

As a result, IT admins can make backups as often as they wish, even for I/O intensive virtual machines, working with HP StoreVirtual VSA, HP StoreVirtual (LeftHand, P4000) and HP StoreServ (3PAR) also.

The solution also introduces 7 additional market-leading features and more than 75 other new features/enhancements, including Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint, VMware vCloud Director Integration, Self-Service Recovery of VMs and Guest Files, and Native Tape Support.

Veeam Backup & Replication v7 pricing is available through Veeam’s distribution partners.
