Veeam Software today announced the immediate availability of Veeam Availability Suite (VAS) 9.5 Update 3 (U3), to extend comprehensive data management and ensure Availability for all workloads—virtual, physical, and cloud—centrally managed via a single Veeam “pane of glass.”. As Veeam unveils the industry’s most comprehensive data protection and availability solution, they prove yet again that they are the clear market leader.
With this release Veeam is also including its Universal Storage API, a new storage interface that will allow Veeam to more rapidly support new storage integrations going forward, leading to superior backup performance, lower risk of data loss, and more rapid recovery. As a result, in Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 3, the company is able to add integration with IBM Spectrum Virtualize, extending Veeam’s storage snapshot integration capabilities to IBM Storwize and any SAN Volume Controller based storage arrays, as well as to the Lenovo Storage V Series. This expansion of Veeam’s strategic partnership with IBM is in addition to current strategic partnerships with HPE, Cisco, and NetApp.
New capabilities in VAS 9.5 U3 include:
- Built-in management for Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.1 and Veeam Agent for Linux v2
- Support for VMware Cloud on AWS
- IBM Storage integration
- Lenovo Storage integration
- New analytics and monitoring capabilities in Veeam ONE
This release follows Veeam’s recently announced support for IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris, enabling protection of physical workloads in Unix environments. This new offering will not only support Veeam’s push into enterprise environments, but also the replacement of traditional legacy vendors with a solution that brings reliability and ease-of-use to all workloads – virtual, physical, and cloud. As Veeam expands its portfolio to meet the needs of enterprise customers, the support for physical workloads in Unix environments, in addition to Windows and Linux, enables the protection of mission-critical applications, systems, and data that exists in highly distributed enterprise environments.
