In my last post, I walked you through the upgrade process for going to Veeam v9. After having some time to work with the product and exploring the many new features, I have come up with my top 3 that I want to share with you. Let’s jump straight into it:
Stand-alone backup console
In v8 and previous releases of Veeam, I’d have to login directly to the backup server to manage any parts of my backup infrastructure. Many times this meant asking nicely (kicking off) if one of the other admins were still using the server so that I could login. No more!!! Now the console supports connecting to a remote Veeam backup server. You can install the client right on your workstation and connect just as if you were on the server itself. Also the new look of the console is great. Not that the other console wasn’t pleasant to look at but….the changes that were made are nice!
