Countdown to Veeam V7 and news for Windows Server and Veeam MP
Veeam recently just announced that there are more awesome features that will be available in B&R Version 7 (Which is going to be available Q3 2013) Which are vPower and Virtual Lab. These features have been available for a while but just not for Hyper-V just Vmware, but it seems that Veeam sees that Hyper-V is become more and more popular.
* vPower (Is a feature that allows you to power up a vm directly from the backup repository ) This allows for VMs to be up and running in a short amount of time ( The picture below shows an illustration of how it works)
* Virtual Lab (Is an extension to vPower, which allows you to boot a vm directly into a closed environment, which is not connected to the regular corp network. Let’s think that you need to do a boot of a backup of Exchange, in that case you would need your domain controller as well, then you can boot both of them into a closed environment and fetch out the data you needed to restore (or you could use SureBackup, U-AIR or on demand sandbox
Also, Veeam just announced a new version of it’s managmenet pack for System Center Operations Manager in version 6.
