10 Reasons to love Veeam for WS 2016 and Hyper-V
Microsoft has a new Windows Server 2016 and Veeam has a new Veeam Availability Suite 9.5. The release dates of these two great products are too close to be a coincidence. In fact, I know that many of the features of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 were built specifically for Windows Server 2016. Many of our competitors in the Availability marketplace will claim that they have “support” for Windows Server 2016, which in most cases just means that they can back up an instance of Windows Server 2016 if the conditions are right. At Veeam, we don’t just support Windows Server 2016. Instead, we actually built in a deep integration with the innovative features and functions that make the latest Windows Server platform great! The following are my top 10 reasons why I think you will love Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 for Windows Server 2016 and Hyper-V!
#10: Support for 2016 data center applications!
Veeam fully supports Windows Server 2016! Backup, replication, monitoring and recovery are ALL best-of-breed! Instant VM Recovery, Instant File-Level Recovery and the ability to reach into the most current database workloads — like new Microsoft Active Directory, SQL, Exchange, SharePoint and Oracle — and do granular recovery are ALL fully supported on Windows Server 2016. Veeam even supports new features like Nano Server, Storage Spaces Direct, Advanced Resilient File System (ReFs) and Resilient Change Tracking.
#9: Storage Spaces Direct data integrity streams
Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) is a state-of-the-art, software-defined storage system. It can be configured in Windows Server 2016 in either a converged or hyper-converged scenario on hardware of the customers’ choice — even something as inexpensive as JBOD. S2D can be used as the storage platform for Hyper-V and, you guessed it, it is fully supported by Veeam!
