Veeam has announced the release of Backup & Replication 6.5, with new restore capabilities for Microsoft Exchange, HP StoreVirtual VSA and LeftHand snapshots.
The vendor says the new solution also makes Veeam the first company to support both new hypervisor platforms.
VM admins will be able to look inside Exchange backups to find and retrieve individual Exchange items, without an agent. The solution also features advanced monitoring and reporting with the new Veeam One 6.5, which is part of the newly released management suite.
“The new Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 extends Veeam’s leadership in the virtualisation data protection market. Veeam's agentless backup and replication solution specifically built for virtualisation was once considered niche, but now is the mainstream as virtualisation itself. According to Gartner as of mid-2012, more than 50% of x86 architecture workloads have been virtualised on servers and this number will grow to 75% by 2014. Organisations now run their most critical applications and services on VMs, making guaranteed quick recovery essential to ensure business continuity," says Ratmir Timashev, Veeam's president and CEO.
Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 will be available in Q4 2012. New Zealand pricing starts at $1099 NZD for the Standard Edition and $1725 NZD for the Enterprise Edition.
