After less than seven months since the launch of Backup 2.0, Veeam is ready to fire out a new major release.

Despite the company entered this segment very in late (March 2008) compared to some well-known competitors like Vizioncore, it worked really fast to fill any technology gap and establish itself as a market leader.

To demonstrate it, today Backup 3.0 introduces some remarkable new features (the first three of them are industry first):

  • the capability to backup ESX and ESXi (including the free edition) hypervisors without the need of VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB)
  • the capability to offer file-level restore from Linux/Unix/BSD/Mac OS virtual machines backup images
  • the support for Windows Server 2008 Volume Shadow Service
  • The capability to backup virtual machine templates
