Veeam Availability Suite v10 gets general release

The new platform from Veeam will feature over 150 new features, including updated Network Attached Storage (NAS) support, Multi-VM Instant Recovery for automated disaster recovery, and improved ransomware protection.

Also included are capabilities for increasing availability, portability and extensibility in the cloud.

The release comes following a recent report by the software company that found that 73% of companies are unable to provide uninterrupted access to applications and data often enough to meet customer demand.

“v10 is the biggest release in the history of Veeam, and the enhancements we’ve made take data protection to the next level, creating the simplest, most flexible, and most reliable solution for hybrid-cloud environments,” said Danny Allan, chief technology officer and senior vice-president of product strategy at Veeam. “As the market leader in cloud data management, we have made it a priority to focus on innovative, best-in-class solutions and align our products with customers’ needs.

“The new Veeam Availability Suite v10 stays true to these ideals, helping businesses of all sizes ensure that their data is always available, portable, and protected across any cloud or platform, so they can intelligently use that data to accelerate their business success now, as well as plan for future needs.”

The updated solution’s release will see a continuation of support for Microsoft Cloud, including integration with Veeam Availability Suite, as well as Veeam Backup for Office 365 and Veeam Backup for Azure.

Tad Brockway, Microsoft’s corporate vice-president for Azure, storage, media and edge, said: “The support for Cloud Copy mode to Azure Blob storage in Veeam Availability Suite v10 makes it easy for customers to eliminate the need for on-premises storage, reduce costs, and more quickly achieve the 3-2-1 rule for data protection by instantly copying data to off-site storage in Azure.”

Veeam’s backup solution series began with the release of Veeam Backup & Replication in 2008.
