New features and enhancements include Veeam Backup & Replication v11a, and cloud-native capabilities for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Veeam Software, a leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, has announced the new update to its flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication.

It has also announced multiple updates to its product portfolio that deliver enhanced cloud-native capabilities.

Veeam Backup & Replication v11a follows the release of V11 in Q1 2021. The most advanced data protection solution for cloud, virtual, physical, SaaS and Kubernetes workloads has been downloaded more than 300,000 times since its initial release.

Veeam continues to innovate and expand with the focus on furthering its ecosystem of integrations with Veeam Backup & Replication v11a. Veeam extends its platform increasing value for customers as they move to the cloud, including expanded native protection for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, Veeam backup repository integration for Kubernetes, and centralized management for IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris protection.

Veeam Backup & Replication v11a provides greater platform support, including Microsoft Windows Server 2022, as well as broader capabilities that help ensure that data is protected, no matter where it’s located.

Finally, enhanced Continuous Data Protection (CDP) provides enhanced support for VMware VSAN and VMware Virtual Volumes (vVOLs), enabling alignment to RPO, RTO and SLA goals with one integrated solution regardless of primary storage technology used.

“The cloud is not ‘new’ for most organizations,” said Danny Allan, CTO & SVP, Product Strategy at Veeam. “According to our recent Veeam Cloud Protection Trends Report, more than 40% of organizations have been using production services in the cloud for more than 24 months. Data is moving, IT platforms are changing, and Veeam continues to evolve to support these moves and deliver the most simple, flexible, reliable and powerful backup solutions. These latest product updates and enhancements will further enable our 400,000 plus customers to protect, recover and manage their data wherever it resides.”

John Annand, Research Director, Infrastructure and Operations, Info-Tech Research Group, said: “Many enterprises, either in the cloud or building a cloud adoption plan, realize they can’t fully rely on their cloud vendor to keep their data safe. What these enterprises need is a backup solution configurable to their specific data protection requirements, is flexible across multiple clouds and environments simultaneously and that doesn’t break the bank.

“With the recent product releases/enhancements included in the V11a release, Veeam continues to demonstrate its commitment to enabling organizations to accelerate their cloud adoption securely and efficiently through policy-based automation, ransomware protection and low storage cloud costs.”
