Veeam Software, a provider of email hosting and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, has recently unveiled the latest version of its Veeam Backup & Replication solution, which will be available in Q4 2012.
In a statement, Veeam President and CEO Ratmir Timashev said, “Veeam’s agentless backup and replication solution is specifically built for virtualization. It was once considered niche, but now is the mainstream as virtualization itself.”
Version 6.5 of the Veeam Backup & Replication offering encompasses new restore capabilities for Microsoft Exchange, HP StoreVirtual VSA and LeftHand snapshots.
It also features Veeam Explorer for Exchange, which allows VM admins to look inside Exchange backups to find and retrieve individual Exchange items without an agent. Some of the other capabilities of the offering include browsing Exchange databases directly from a compressed backup file, searching for specific items across multiple Exchange mailbox databases and object types, and exporting items to a PST file or MSG files or sending them as an attachment.
Further, Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots helps admins to quickly restore any or all of a VM directly from SAN snapshots and enables short recovery point objectives for the most common recovery scenarios. The other new functionality found within Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 is its advanced monitoring and reporting. By using the new Veeam ONE 6.5, this feature successfully integrates monitoring, reporting, and capacity planning for Veeam Backup & Replication into a single console.
The robust solution fully supports VMware vSphere 5.1 and Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V.
