14 Jul 16

Veeam has an announcement and it's good news for Windows Server 2016 and Hyper- V technologies users.

The innovative provider of solutions has just announced that its Availability Suite 9.5 will offer easy integration between the two Microsoft releases.

Doug Hazelman, vice president of product strategy at Veeam, says it’s their goal to be one of the first Availability solutions to fully support the two. 

 “The latest version of Veeam Availability Suite will provide users with the ability to utilise the most current Microsoft technology and benefit from enterprise-grade security and reduced complexities,” says Hazelman.

"Veeam, working together with Microsoft, provides the right combination of virtualisation, and fast recovery to deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise,” he adds.

The new integration is part of approximately 100 new features and enhancements being introduced in Veeam Availability Suite 9.5. The company say it’s all part of a continuous effort.

Chris Van Wesep is Microsoft’s director of cloud platform marketing, he says thousands of businesses rely on Veeam for Hyper-V backup and protection.

“As such, we are pleased to extend our collaboration with Veeam to provide IT administrators new options for efficient backup operations, high-speed recovery, and the business continuity they need to keep businesses protected and productive anytime, anywhere,” states Wesep.

Complete integration in Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 includes:

  • Windows Server 2016 support for installing Veeam Backup & Replication™ components as well as support as a guest OS of protected VMs, including network-free communication with a guest via PowerShell Direct.
  •  Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V support, including integration with Resilient Change Tracking (RCT) for backups and restores, and Hyper-V hosts installed on Nano Server and Storage Spaces Direct (S2D).
  • Support for the most current versions of Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Active Directory, and SQL Server for application-aware processing and application item-level recoveries through Veeam Explorers™ for fast RTOs of less than 15 minutes. 

Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 is expected to be available later this year, close to general availability of Windows Server 2016.
