The Next Big Thing from Veeam – Veeam Availability Platform!
So Veeam has been busy lately and today they showed us what they have been working on with their platform! With the upcoming release of Veeam availability suite 9.5 (Which I’ve blogged about previously here –> http://msandbu.org/veeam-backup-and-replication-9-5-with-azure-and-windows-server-2016-support/
Veeam B&R (or Availability suites) has always been aimed against virtualized environments, in order to become more agile against the move towards clouds, also with the introduction of cloud connect, direct restore to Azure, endpoint protection, it gets difficult to manage in a larger scale. Also having orchestrated disaster recovery options as well which makes management complex. Veeam has talked about the Orchestrator product which will fit nicely into the puzzle, the final piece is Veeam availability console which will allow for a centralized management of remote offices, clouds and virtual environments.
Veeam have also figured out that agents is needed to ensure compatibility and full featured backup across all platforms (virtual, physical, cloud)
So starting with Veeam 9.5 you can now have agents installed on any supported Windows or Linux operating system.
