In my last post, I outlined a number of new enterprise scalability features: Backup acceleration technologies, full VM restore acceleration technologies and core engine enhancements. Part of the announcement for 9.5 was about the new advanced ReFS integration, which I’ll cover in this post as it is a significant technology for Veeam. Let’s dig in!

Advanced ReFS integration

The final 9.5 feature I will cover today is arguably the most amazing feature of 9.5: Advanced ReFS integration. Resilient File System (ReFS) is a new file system of Windows Server operating systems, and the Windows Server 2016 version brings new capabilities that Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 leverages in order to provide some truly incredible benefits.

The advanced ReFS integration supports ReFS volumes on internal, direct-attached storage (DAS) and Storage Spaces — both classic and Storage Spaces Direct (S2D). The benefits (explained below) will provide significantly faster synthetic full backup creation and transformation performance, as well as reduce storage requirements and improve reliability. Even more importantly, this functionality improves Availability of backup storage by significantly reducing its load — which results in improved backup and restore performance and enables customers to do much more with virtual labs running off of backup storage. This is a big deal, so let’s explore more.
