Following up on our recent blog about instantaneous backup of virtual machines, Veeam recently announced its plans to deliver version 7 of its Backup & Replication solution in the third quarter of 2013. This new offering is said to offer a number of new, innovative features over version 6.5.
Veeam is emphasizing the new capability to perform backups from SAN snapshots supporting HP StoreVirtual Storage and HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage in version 7. This capability will dramatically improve recovery point objectives (RPOs) of VMware backup and also significantly reduce the impact of backup activities on the production environment.

Other new features and enhancements in Veeam’s Backup & Replication v7 solution include:
- Built-in WAN acceleration getting backups offsite up to 50x faster
- Native tape support expanding storage and restore options
- Enhanced backup and recovery for vCloud Director (vCD)
- Rapid search and restore from Microsoft SharePoint backups
- Self-service recovery
- vSphere Web Client plug-in
- Virtual Lab support for Hyper-V
- Virtual Lab for replicas
Built for virtualization, Veeam Backup & Replication solves three key problems often found in tools designed for physical backup and retrofitted for use with virtual machines: Missing capabilities, complexity and cost prohibitive. Version 7 will offer the robustness necessary for organizations to protect their data, but also offers the simplicity necessary for deployment, monitoring and maintenance – all at an affordable price point.
