Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Veeam® Backup & Replication™ 9.5, part of Veeam Availability Suite™, delivers Hyper-Availability for ALL your virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads — from a single management console. It provides Intelligent Data Management and meets the backup demands of the Hyper-Available Enterprise to reduce complexity and out-perform legacy backup. The following is a list of the new, major features and functionalities added in 9.5 and its sequential updates.
- VMware vSphere 6.7 support. Includes the new HTML5 version of vSphere Web Client plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication, and asynchronous NBD/NBDSSL support for improved read performance of network transport mode with ESXi 6.7.
- VMware vSphere 6.5 U2 preliminary support. This update addresses all outstanding U2-specific compatibility issues that can be managed from the Veeam side. However, there is a major regression in ESXi 6.5 U2 code that makes the vSphere API fail randomly during high host CPU load periods, consequently impacting a variety of Veeam Backup & Replication functionality. VMware is currently troubleshooting this bug, and fixing one will most likely require the new ESXi 6.5 U2 build issued.
