Veeam Backup & Replication 7 released
Posted on 21 August 2013.
Veeam Software announced Veeam Backup & Replication 7, which introduces built-in WAN acceleration and backup from storage snapshots.

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.

Developed in partnership with HP, 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. The solution works with HP StoreVirtual VSA, HP StoreVirtual (LeftHand, P4000) and HP StoreServ (3PAR).

Veeam Backup & Replication 7 also introduces 7 additional 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.

“We’re required to backup to tape once a month, so we copy from our backup target to tape, which takes a long time,” said Judica Kluit, Senior Systems Administrator, City of Lelystad. “With Veeam, we plan to archive backups to tape automatically and save about eight hours each month.”
