VMworld 2012: Storage Takes Center Stage (Part 2)


Veeam Software demonstrated two new capabilities that the Baar, Switzerland-based company in the fourth quarter plans to add free-of-charge to its upcoming Veeam Backup & Replication v6.5, including the free edition.

The first, Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots, was developed in conjunction with Hewlett-Packard to help IT administrators recover virtual machines, guest files or individual Microsoft Exchange items directly from HP LeftHand and HP StoreVirtual VSA snapshots to enable short recovery point objectives (RPOs) for the most common recovery scenarios.

The second is Veeam Explorer for Exchange, which lets IT admins browse Exchange databases from a compressed backup file to search for specific items across multiple mailbox databases and object types and perform e-discovery and other Exchange recovery and archiving functions.
