Join VeeamON Virtual on November 20th 2019

Like in recent years, Veeam will kick off its VeeamON Virtual 2019 conference. It’ll take place on November 20th 2019 right on your desktop. Registration is free.

Agenda

Expect presentations by more than 20 speakers from the tracks Vision & Strategy, Implementation Best Practises, Cloud-Powered and Architecture & Design. More than 1000 Minutes of content that 5000+ visitors from all over the world can stream for 24 hours.

Ratmir Timashev (Co-Founder and Executive Vice President) and Dave Russell (Vice President, Enterprise Strategy) will open with their keynote with Veeam Predictions 2020.

Personally I’m very excited about technical sessions by Veeam’s leading technologists. They will give an outlook to the long exprected Veeam Version 10 and many more topics from the Veeam ecosphere.

Like last year and the year before ElasticSky.de will be official media partner of VeeamON Virtual and I will join the expert panel to answer questions about Veeam in the chat room.

Veeam Backup support for Server 2008 will end with next major release

Next major release of Veeam Backup & Replication will no longer support several Windows versions. That was announced by Anton Gostev in his weekly forum digest on Feb. 25th 2019.

Veeam Backup & Replication components will no longer support being installed on Windows Server 2008 SP2, Windows 8.0 and Windows 10 1507/1511. However, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (1607 or later) will continue to be supported. Also, Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 continues to be supported as before.

Server 2003 und XP guest OS affected

Application-aware processing and guest file system indexing will no longer support Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP virtual machines. However, crash-consistent backup of such VMs will of course still be supported – as generally speaking, we don’t care what’s inside those images we’re backing up (and whether there is any OS at all).

Curtains für vSphere 5.0 und 5.1

VMware vSphere 5.0 and 5.1 will no longer be supported. However, vSphere 5.5 will continue to be supported. Importantly, the new VeeamCDP functionality specifically will require vSphere 6.5 or later due to its platform dependencies.

VeeamCDP only for vSphere 6.5 and later

The long announced and postponed feature VeeamCDP will require vSphere 6.5 and later versions.
