Veeam heeft een nieuwe versie van Backup uitgebracht, dat zich richt op gevirtualiseerde omgevingen met behulp van VMware Infrastructure 3. Naast de normale backup- en restore-functies is het ook mogelijk om replicaties uit te voeren. Voor meer informatie verwijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina. Het versienummer van deze verse uitgave is vastgesteld op 220.127.116.11 en voorzien van de volgende aankondiging:
WHAT’S NEW IN VEEAM BACKUP 3.0
Veeam Backup 3.0 is a major update to Veeam’s leading-edge disaster recovery solution for VMware Infrastructure that combines backup and replication in a single product. As a result of ongoing research and development efforts, and in response to customer feedback, version 3.0 includes a markedly expanded range of features and enhancements, most not available from any other vendor. Improvements in version 3.0 have been made in the following areas:
- Support for ESXi and ESXi Free
Last summer Veeam was the first to introduce ESXi backup through VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) framework. Now, Veeam Backup 3.0 is the only VMware backup solution to offer ESXi backup without VCB. This makes Veeam Backup the ideal solution for mixed environments where ESX, ESXi and ESXi free are in use - only Veeam Backup can back up and recover them all.
- Linux File-Level Recovery
Another industry first: only Veeam Backup now offers fast file‐level recovery for Linux guests. You can restore individual files from image‐level backups of virtual machines running Linux, Unix, BSD, Mac and other operating systems in addition to Windows file‐level restore available since version 1.0.
- Windows 2008 VSS Support
Veeam Backup 3.0 is currently the only VMware backup solution that provides application‐level quiescing for Windows 2008 guests to ensure consistent backups and replicas of the applications running within your Windows 2008 virtual machines. Both 32‐bit and 64‐bit guest OS and applications are fully supported. And Veeam Backup is still the only solution on the market to provide complete VSS support by implementing the custom shadow copy restore logic required for certain applications by Microsoft to ensure successful application recovery. To learn more, refer to the following white paper.
- VM Templates Backup
Leave no data behind with the new templates backup functionality. Now virtual machine templates are protected along with regular virtual machines and can be easily restored in case of a disaster.
- Improved Performance
Backup performance has been further improved with network traffic compression and an enhanced compression engine.
Numerous additional enhancements requested by our customers are also included to make Veeam Backup even easier and more convenient to use:
- Automatic and manual retry of failed jobs. During the retry cycle, only VMs failed durinthe main backup cycle are processed. In case of agentless network backup retry, alternate data access mechanism featuring granular block-level retry is leveraged, allowing you to perform network backup over unreliable network connections.
- Disk exclusion. You can exclude certain VM disks from being processed with the backupThis functionality may be useful if you are performing an application’s backup using legacy agents, and thus only want to perform VM’s system drive backup, or in similar scenarios.
- New scheduling engine. Built‐in job scheduling and its user interface have been reworked to better suit most common backup and replication scheduling use casesreceived from our customers.
- Better restore progress indication. Restore operations progress is now shown in a separate window that lists current operation, performance statistics and estimated time remaining.
- Remote SQL support. Veeam Backup configuration can now be stored on a remote Microsoft SQL Server database to better protect your Veeam Backup deployment from disasters.
- Restore VM files. The ability to restore VM files (VMDK, VMX) to a custom location has been added to allow restoring specific files only as opposed to the full VM.
- Backup results. Veeam Backup can optionally update backup information in VM’s Notesattribute upon successful backup. Information includes backup date and time, backup console name, and path to the backup file containing the specific VM.
