NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 is Available!
I am happy to announce that NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 is now generally available (GA) and ready for download! This latest version of our flagship product builds even further upon a number of enterprise enhancements introduced with v9 to help organizations meet today’s service-level objectives enabling the recovery of any IT service and related applications and data within seconds and minutes.
For a .5 release, 9.5 really stands out by adding a number of critical features designed to help enterprises scale more effectively and maintain Availability. To provide perspective on just how much new technology is being introduced, check out the What’s New in Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 and What’s New in Veeam ONE 9.5 documents for a complete list of each new feature with descriptions. For those of you who are just starting to familiarize yourself with 9.5, below is a list of blogs we have published to date on six of the more notable features being introduced:
Enhanced enterprise scalability
To help scale up backup and replication activities, as well as shorten backup windows while reducing impact on production environments, Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 introduces a whole new collection of enterprise scalability enhancements. Enhancements include accelerated backup performance, faster restores of larger VMs and reduced loads on primary and backup storage, as well as virtual infrastructure servers.
Additionally, to improve performance and capacity efficiencies for large-scale datasets, 9.5 is also introducing Advanced ReFS Integration, which in all honesty is my favorite new feature. Advanced ReFS Integration will help ensure backup data resiliency and the protection of critical apps through fast cloning of Veeam backups — creating and transforming synthetic full backup files up to 10x faster. This will shorten backup windows and lower backup storage load, as well as reduce backup storage capacity consumption with spaceless full backup technology, and ensure backup archive integrity by monitoring background data corruption.
