Click to Tweet: Veeam Backup & Replication is First to Support both vSphere 5.5 and Windows Server 2012 R2 for data protection

Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced that its flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication, is the first data protection solution to support the most recent hypervisor releases from both VMware and Microsoft. This sets Veeam apart as the first vendor to support the latest versions of both platforms.

Now available via Veeam Backup & Replication v7 R2, this update delivers additional features and functionality described below.

For VMware, support for:

  • vSphere 5.5, including support for 62TB virtual disks; and
  • vCloud Director 5.5.

For Microsoft, support for:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and free Hyper-V Server 2012 R2, including support for Generation 2 virtual machines;
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 as guest virtual machines (VMs);
  • System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager (VMM); and
  • The installation of Veeam Backup & Replication and its components on Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.

With this update, Veeam now provides enterprises using the latest releases of these leading hypervisors with all the disruptive features and innovations of Veeam Backup and Replication v7, including Built-In WAN Acceleration, Backup from Storage Snapshots for VMware, Virtual Lab for Hyper-V and more than 75 additional enhancements and updates.

Since it was released on August 15, the reception for Veeam Backup & Replication v7 has been tremendous. As of November 1, 32% of Veeam’s customer base had already upgraded to v7, and the vast majority of socket licenses (71%) have been for the Enterprise or Enterprise Plus editions.

“Veeam has a reputation for innovation and consistently being the first data protection software company to provide support for new hypervisor releases,” said Veeam’s President and CEO, Ratmir Timashev. “We believe that enterprises who have invested in a modern datacenter shouldn’t have to wait for their backup vendor to catch up to them. With Veeam, IT professionals will always be able to count on having modern data protection that is Built for Virtualization™ and the latest version of their hypervisor of choice.”

“Our role in helping organizations leverage virtualization includes making sure they can take advantage of the latest in data protection and disaster recovery strategies for VMware and Hyper-V technologies,” said Randy Weis, Consulting Architect at GreenPages Technology Solutions, a Veeam Gold ProPartner. “Veeam has always been on the leading edge of providing powerful new capabilities to our customers, so it’s no surprise they’re a leader yet again when it comes to supporting the latest hypervisor releases. Furthermore, the ease of use and excellent support and documentation are among the biggest drivers and most frequently mentioned advantages in the high adoption rate of this technology.”
