AWESOME, “Veeam Backup Free Edition” is released

Yesterday “June 04, 2012”, “Veeam Software, Inc.” has released one new awesome product.
This product is based on newer version of their award-winning product, “Veeam Backup & Replication” with no host, physical socket or virtual machine limitation (Free Edition).

And here, just part of great news about “Free Edition”:

  • Backup & Recover VMs form Environments based on both hypervisor (VMware and Microsoft)
  • Support both managed and standalone hosts (VMware vCenter/Microsoft SCVMM).
  • Do Compression and Deduplication (included my own result in screen shot)
  • Recover file/files from VM
  • Recover file/files from guest OS inside VM
  • And now, it’s possible to “Migrate VMs between hosts and/or datastores

One other great thing about “Veeam Backup Free Edition” is the upgrade path (from administration point of view), there’s no need to uninstall/re-install this software if the license bought latter, just enter the license in the software and use same UI* and same system.
* Some features/options might not be shown in “Free Edition” but they would be shown as soon as software get proper license.  😉

New product got lots of improvement from new interface, Veeam ZIP, capability of migrating live VMs and lot more.
Bellow I’ve attached few screen shots from internally ran beta version on my lab but I highly recommend to get it yourself and work with it, sure you’d love it as well!
