Veeam Announces Veeam Backup & Replication v7 with Built-in WAN Acceleration

Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced Veeam Backup & Replication™ v7, taking Modern Data Protection™ to the next level with 2 disruptive innovations: Built-in WAN Acceleration and Backup from Storage Snapshots.

Up to 50x Faster Offsite Backup with Built-in WAN Acceleration

Built-in WAN Acceleration, which was developed by Veeam and optimized specifically for Veeam backups, copies data to offsite locations up to 50 times faster than a regular file copy.

This removes the need to purchase and deploy a general purpose WAN acceleration appliance or acquire additional network bandwidth for offsite backups.

Backup from Storage Snapshots with HP to Dramatically Improve RPO

The second groundbreaking new capability, Backup from Storage Snapshots, has been developed in partnership with HP and works with HP StoreVirtual VSA, HP StoreVirtual (LeftHand, P4000) and HP StoreServ (3PAR) to dramatically improve recovery point objectives (RPOs) while greatly reducing stress on the virtual infrastructure. As a result, IT admins can make backups as often as they want throughout the day, even for I/O intensive virtual machines (VMs). For more details, read the companion news release.
