While there was definitively a trend of remote work/working from home, in the last 12 months this has accelerated dramatically. According to 451 Research, a majority of enterprises state that at least 3/4 of their workforce can now effectively work from home. This increases the reliance on multi-cloud strategies while at the same time making data harder to manage and protect. While the pandemic seems to be winding down, hopefully, remote work and the possible issues it creates seem like it is here to stay. One of the big things in Veeam Backup & Replication v11 is security and ransomware protection that fends off increasing risks of cyberthreats.

New features in Veeam Backup & Replication v11 include:

  • Disaster Recovery with Veeam Continuous Data Protection (CDP): Eliminate downtime and minimize data loss for Tier-1 VMware workloads with built-in CDP and achieve immediate recoveries to the latest state or desired point in time providing the best recovery point objectives (RPOs).
  • Reliable Ransomware Protection: Keep backups safe with immutable, hardened Linux repositories compliant with SEC 17a-4(f), FINRA 4511(c) and CFTC 1.31(c)-(d) regulations, preventing encryption by ransomware, accidental or malicious deletions; based on general-purpose servers, without any hardware lock-in.
  • Amazon S3 Glacier and Microsoft Azure Archive Storage: Reduce the costs of long-term data archival and retention by up to 20 times and replace manual tape management with new native support for Amazon S3 Glacier (including Glacier Deep Archive) and Microsoft Azure Archive Storage through end-to-end backup life cycle management with Veeam Scale-out Backup Repository Archive Tier.
  • Google Cloud Storage: New support for Google Cloud Storage for Veeam Scale-out Backup Repository Capacity Tier, providing a greater choice of hot cloud object storage targets.
  • Expanded Instant Recovery: Achieve the lowest recovery time objectives (RTOs) with powerful instant recovery for Microsoft SQL, Oracle databases, and NAS file shares from the pioneer of Instant VM Recovery.
  • NEW Veeam Agent for Mac: Delivers end-user data backup for any macOS device, joining existing Veeam Agents for Microsoft Windows, Linux, IBM AIX, and Oracle Solaris.
  • Veeam-powered BaaS and DRaaS: Leverage the services, solutions, and expertise needed to maximize the value of V11 by teaming up with Veeam-powered service providers for a fully managed backup experience.

Looking at the last point, the Veeam Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) are brought to the market in 180 countries thanks to their partnerships with leading cloud and managed service providers. These services are seamlessly integrated into V11 through the use of the new Veeam Service Provider Console v5, a web-based platform for centralized management, monitoring, and customer self-service access of data protection operations. The newest version features expanded backup management for Linux and Mac. Console v5 also has monitoring and reporting of cloud-native AWS and Azure backups and enhanced security with multi-factor authentication.

With the new Veeam Availability Suite v11, we see the combination of the backup capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication v11 with the monitoring capabilities of Veeam ONE v11. This is the best of both worlds with both data protection and visibility across all the environments. Veeam Availability Suite v11 also includes Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator for site recovery automation and DR testing to ensure business continuity.
