Veeam releases new availability suite to help support cloud adoption

Veeam has released a new version of its availability suite to help support enterprises aiming to run their businesses uninterrupted as they adopt virtualised, cloud-first technologies.

Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 has more than 175 new features and has been designed to deliver enhanced agility and flexibility.

The suite aims to ensure around-the-clock availability across all workloads and applications, regardless of whether they reside on-premise or in the cloud.

The Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 includes new enterprise scalability enhancements, and can be fully integrated with Microsoft 2016 data centre technologies such as Windows Server 2016 and Microsoft Hyper-V 2016.

The new suite also features Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure, which delivers cloud restore for Veeam backups. This allows users to optimise resource allocation and minimise cost, and lets users take Windows and other virtual machines from on-premise to the Azure cloud platform.

Another feature of the Veeam Availability Suite is Veeam ONE 9.5, which allows enterprises and service providers to leverage powerful chargeback and billing reports for virtual and backup infrastructures. This will help them calculate the cost of compute and storage resources within their organisations or service offerings, and charge individual departments or customers based on usage. 

“Veeam Availability Suite has always been at the leading-edge of innovation, and as enterprises embrace a more virtualised, cloud-first era, our approach to 24/7/365 availability is becoming the standard-bearer for the market,” said Peter McKay, president and COO at Veeam. “As the amount of data and number of cloud workloads continues to grow at exponential rates, I am proud that with Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 we are dramatically enhancing our enterprise scalability to protect tens of thousands of virtual machines and petabytes of data.”
