· · The capabilities of Veeam Backup Free Edition address tasks that VM admins deal with every day:
o o VeeamZIP™: Ad-hoc backup of a running VM for operational, archival or portability purposes. For example, admins can now back up a VM before applying patches, create an archive copy of a VM, or copy a VM to a remote test lab—without powering off the production VM.
o o Instant File-Level Recovery: Restore individual guest files directly from an image-level backup.
o o File Manager: Easily manage VM and host files.
o o Quick Migration for VMware: Migrate a running VM to any host or datastore—even if you don’t use clusters or shared storage.
· · Also now available is Veeam Backup & Replication 6.1 with new capabilities:
o vPower® and Instant VM Recovery for Hyper-V: Enables IT to boot and run a VM directly from a compressed, deduped backup file, in a matter of minutes, so business can continue undisrupted during the restore of the VM back into the production environment.
o SCVMM 2012 Support: Extends support for System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 to System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager. SCVMM support streamlines discovery and ensures protection of VMs managed by SCVMM.
o Updated UI and Additional Enhancements: Designed based on user requests and Veeam R&D innovation. The updated UI is an evolution, not a complete re-design. Current users will still be able to use all of their existing jobs, settings and the workflow for the wizards has not changed.
