Veeam 9.5 RTM should be available soon!

Windows Server 2016 became generally available last week, meaning many of you probably have the same question around its support by Veeam. More information about Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 here and on Veeam portal.

In the word from Gostev, with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5, the goal is to sign off RTM build before the end of this month. Veeam did have some delay, mainly because the Windows Server 2016 RTM build appeared to have a number of show stoppers around Hyper-V 2016 backup. Veeam worked closely with Microsoft to investigate those, and Gostev said that most of them have now been resolved with the update to Windows Server 2016 RTM build. This update will be pushed normally through Windows Update, and if you’re a Microsoft partner – look for “Update 9D” package on Connect.

Top 15 easy performance optimizations (Veeam)

Today there is the Microsoft experiences’16 event in Paris about Digital Transformation, Scott Guthrie (Executive Vice President, Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group) has just announced 2 datacenters in France (Azure regions) in 2017 will be located near Paris and in South of France! It’s a good new for Veeam France because the second feature announcement of new Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 brings the full integration of the previously released stand-alone feature, Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure. This new, fully integrated feature provides businesses with the ability to optimize resource allocation to drive scalability and minimize cost — to efficiently extend Availability to the hybrid cloud. A user will be able to restore or migrate anything (Windows- and Linux-based VMs, physical servers or endpoints) to Microsoft Azure directly from within the Veeam Backup & Replication server on-premises.

I wish to take this opportunity to share a great video published by Rasmus Haslund and Anthony Spiteri (a Veeam Vanguard mate).
