Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 3 was released just in time to put under the X-Mas tree of you IT staff. It’s a major release and they’ve gone above and beyond what’’ you’d expect from an update. Also read this post to see all the goodness it offers. It’s clear Veeam has the intent to become the backup provider for even more environments whether these are physical, virtual or containers and whether these are on-premises or in private, hybrid or public clouds. Read up on some details in this blog post by Rick Vanover on the Veeam web site.
As a Veeam Vanguard I did not waste time and downloaded the updates to test the deployment in the lab and that went fine. From there it went to the proving grounds (real life hardware & labs) before deploying it in production. All of these deployments went super smooth.
I’m happy to report Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 and Veeam One 9.5 Update 3 is running very well in production and I have not seen any issues yet. In case you’re wondering or nervous about it the SAN deployments with Off Host Proxies didn’t miss a beat. That’s the quality and smooth experience of Veeam that we have come to rely on. I’m still impressed, even after many updates, with how smooth it goes and how streamlined the update process is.
Two more things. You only have a few days left to enter for a chance to win a fully paid trip to a VeeamON 2018 Event in your region. So act now if you’d like to attend for free. You have 2 days left!
It’s also still possible to nominate your self or some one else for the Veeam Vanguard program. Don’t delay! You have until December 29th!
That’s it. Time for some down time for the end of year & new year festivities.
