We had the second slot on the Wednesday from 10am-12pm and presented around three main topics as well as a very quick re-introduction to Veeam and how we are doing in the market today.
Rick then took everyone through a Scale Out Backup Repository (SOBR) 101 and a quick recap of the Cloud Tier as it was released as part of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4. We actually could have level set a bit more at this point, but time was already short. With that I put together a quick post last week to further debunk some of the terminology we use when talking about SOBR and the Cloud Tier.
Following that, I went through two of the most anticipated features in our upcoming Veeam Backup & Replication v10 release. That is enhancements to the Cloud Tier by adding Copy Mode and Immutability for Amazon S3.
Michael Cade then took us through the v10 Enhanced NAS feature which is probably our most eagerly and long awaited/overdue feature in years. Michael does a great job of going through the differences between us and our competitors and also why we have waited this long to release backup for NAS… even though this is now much much more.
As an extra, Michael put out this video the next day further explaining how have implemented CRC into the feature for more efficient backup performance.
Finally, I had 15 minutes to race through a feature that is not coming as part of v10, but coming in 2020… CDP! It’s taken us a while, but as I said in the video, I believe we will have the most reliable and stable implementation of CDP. This isn’t something you want to mess around with, and I know all to well from experience the impact problematic CDP implementations can have.
