What a milestone! Veeam Backup & Replication v11 is here and loaded with capabilities to help you accelerate your Digital Transformation journey. This is arguably the largest monumental release at Veeam. In addition to our flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication, this launch delivers more updates, such as Veeam ONE v11, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure v2, Veeam Service Provider Console v5 and a newly rebranded Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator v4.
Let’s start by highlighting the 5 most exciting capabilities within Veeam Backup & Replication v11:
1. Continuous Data Protection
Veeam will disrupt the market by completely democratizing recovery point objectives (RPOs) for VMware environments. Veeam’s Continuous Data Protection (CDP) will provide great resiliency for critical workloads with ultra-low RPOs, minimizing data loss and recovering to the latest state or point in time. Coupled with an easy deployment, Veeam customers and partners will embrace this technology for its flexibility, affordability and because it’s included in a product so many organizations already use. Not only is CDP included with Veeam Backup & Replication, but also integrated in Veeam ONE and Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator.
2. Reliable Ransomware Protection
There are many threats to your data. Within the past year, we have all witnessed a massive increase in ransomware attacks, cyberthreats and malware events, and we expect this to continue. At Veeam, we have long advocated having at least one copy of backup data on an immutable, air-gapped or offline copy as part of our 3-2-1 Rule, and we’re proud to have delivered several options for which to protect against ransomware. The latest innovation in ransomware protection within V11 provides yet another way to keep your data safe. This capability allows the Hardened Linux Repository to provide an immutable copy on any Linux system, in any location, on premises or in the cloud. This will keep backups safe, preventing malicious encryption and deletion, and is yet another tool in your security arsenal.
3. Archive to the Cloud
V11 will allow our customers to reduce the cost of long-term storage and replace tape infrastructure with a modern solution by over 20x. AWS S3 Glacier or Azure Blob Archive cold storage is a great addition to the policy-based management within the intelligent storage tiers of Veeam’s Scale-out Backup Repository: Performance, Capacity and now Archive. Automate your data lifecycle management.
4. Instant Recovery
V11 builds on one of the hallmark Veeam capabilities, Instant Recovery. Now, Veeam customers can achieve the lowest recovery time objectives (RTOs) with production-ready Instant Recovery for SQL, Oracle and NAS file shares with incredible ease of use! This latest release also includes the ability to instantly restore ANY backup to as a Hyper-V VM, adding incredible restore flexibility.
5. Veeam-powered BaaS & DRaaS
Veeam has long had many ways to consume our products as a service. Whether it is off-site backup, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), on-premises Backup as a Service (BaaS), Infrastructure as a Service protected by Veeam and other offerings; there is a service to meet the needs of the market. V11 incorporates the BaaS and DRaaS as top-level customer benefits in conjunction with the release of the Veeam Service Provider Console v5.
Over 150 new and enhanced capabilities
Those top capabilities get all of the headlines, but the reality is that there is so much more to this major release. Besides having over 150 new and enhanced capabilities, V11 brings in major updates to other products, as well:
