Veeam has announced Veeam Backup & Replication v6, adding support for Microsoft Hyper-V and major enhancements for VMware vSphere in this version. The new version offers a single solution for fast, efficient, reliable, and affordable data protection of multi-hypervisor environments encompassing Windows Server Hyper-V and VMware vSphere. With Veeam, customers can now protect all virtual machines with a single product, from a single console.


Veeam Backup & Replication support for Windows Server Hyper-V brings unprecedented speed and efficiency to Windows Server Hyper-V data protection. Major first-to-market capabilities include: -- 2-in-1: backup and replication: Provides image-based backup and near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) in a single solution.

"New features of Veeam Backup & Replication v6 include:

"Built-in deduplication and compression: Included at no extra charge, these capabilities minimize consumption of network bandwidth and backup storage.

"Changed block tracking for Windows Server Hyper-V: Exclusive Veeam technology enables fast, frequent and efficient backup and replication of all VMs, including those running on Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV).

"Additional differentiators for Windows Server Hyper-V include: -- Agentless: There are no agents to license, deploy, maintain, or monitor.

"Forever incremental: Eliminates the need for full periodic backups by creating new full backups from incremental backups. This is essential when backing up large VMs or over a WAN.

"Instant file-level recovery: Restore Windows guest files directly from an image-level backup."
