What's New with Veeam Backup Essentials v9?

The demand for efficient and reliable data backup software is more urgent than ever. Business owners and IT professionals need to access their data and applications with minimal downtime, while also allowing for data growth. That’s where Veeam backup software comes in.

Veeam is one of the industry’s most trusted sources for backup software for small to mid-sized businesses. With the recent announcement of the new Veeam Availability Suite v9, now is the time for SMBs to consider Veeam for their virtualization backup solution. Here are a few of the reasons we recommend upgrading to Veeam Backup Essentials v9.

vPower Cache: The latest vPower cache will speed up all Instant VM Recovery reliant functionality by storing all recently accessed file blocks in the memory.

Improved Infrastructure Cache: This new user interface now uses caching locations such as Backup Job Wizards, which helps to remove lag time in loading virtual infrastructure objects. Users can even adjust the 15-minute default cache expiration.

Standalone Console: This feature in v9 allows users to manage Veeam Backup & Replication remotely without a remote desktop session providing more flexible management options.

New Backup Copy Parallel Processing: Version 9 allows users to process multiple VMs in parallel, similar to primary backup jobs. By allowing wide-ranging parallel processing, you can improve retention processing and backup copying for faster, more efficient results.

Scale-out Backup Repositories: Version 9 offers a single backup repository encompassing multiple storage devices allowing users to fully utilize current storage and reduce hardware costs in the long run.

Cloud Connect Replication: Based on the Cloud Connect Backup in v8, the new and improved Cloud Connect Replication feature in v9 offers partial or complete failover to a service provider cloud. It allows users to replicate and send virtual machines to cloud hosts with allocated resources ensuring that your data is both accessible and secure.
