Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 is an agentless software platform designed specifically for virtual server data protection.
Version 6.5 of Veeam Backup & Replication features the ability to search Microsoft Exchange backups to retrieve individual Exchange items, a dynamically distributed architecture designed to improve remote site backup performance, faster replication performance, and Web-based file restore direct to the original virtual machine (VM) without a network connection or guest agent.
This version also gives users the ability to restore individual VMs or items directly from HP StoreVirtual VSA and LeftHand snapshots, and adds a backup utility that creates a compressed, deduped version of a VM for archiving or portability. In addition, Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 offers a new user interface intended to improve integration with VMware and Hyper-V.
One of our judges said this version of Veeam "adds several good incremental features to an already feature-rich, quality backup product" and that "it sets the bar for virtual server backup and recovery."
The product has a history of leadership in the virtual server backup space, and continues to offer its core features such as vPower, which enables features like Instant VM Recovery, Universal Application-Item Recovery and SureBackup.
