Veeam is one of the best backup applications for virtualization products in the world, and has been using virtualization structures as the best product for backing up for several years. Using the Veeam Backup & Replication software, you can easily restore, restore, and recover data or software in virtualization environments with speed and flexibility as well as high reliability. This software provides you with integrated Backup and Recovery solutions and is very suitable for virtual environments like Hyper-V and vSphere.
Veeam released the latest update of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3a by providing a total of new support for the VMware platform. Have you ever had to install or upgrade VMware vSphere 6.5 or vSphere version 6.7 before? Be sure to update Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 before doing this. One of the great changes to this update is the use of the new HTML5 version in the vSphere Web Client for Veeam Backup & Replication. VMware vCloud Director 9.1 is also supported in this update. The platforms named below are supported in the new Veeam Backup & Replication update under the title 3a:
Platform Support for Veeam Backup & Replication Update 9.5 Update 3a:
- VMware vSphere 6.7: This update supports the new version of HTML5 in the vSphere Web Client plugin, and also supports NBD / NBDSSL to identify the type of transmission on the network with ESXi 6.7.
- VMware vSphere 6.5 U2: This update covers all compatibility issues with the U2 feature. However, there is a major problem with the ESXi 6.5 U2 code that does not support the vSphere API during large processing cycles on the CPU, which negatively affects the capabilities and performance of Veeam Backup & Replication. VMware is currently troubleshooting and is likely to release a new ESXi 6.5 U2 to fix this.
- VMware vCloud Director 9.1: Update version 3a provides compatibility with vCloud Director.
- VMware Cloud support on AWS version 3 and out-of-box introductory compatibility with new VMC features.
- Microsoft Windows Server 1803: Update 3a of Windows Server 1803 as a virtual machine for remote installation of Veeam Backup & Replication and also as a domain controller in Veeam Explorer.
- Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V 1803: Hyper-V update 180 supports Hyper-V 1803 as the HyperVisor host, and supports VMs with virtualization hardware version 3.
Also included in this update are some other improvements and support for the Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3a update, which we will describe below:
- In this update, direct access to direct memory (DirectSAN) and hot-box transfer (Hot Add) have been improved to take backup.
- Support for Direct Release in Microsoft Azure for environments with Rout Express or site-to-site VPNs that are associated with Azure; in this case, there may be proxies or IP addresses for private proxies.
Linux File Level Recovery
- In this update, support has been added to prevent “Copy To” operations of Linux SUIDs and SGIDs.
- Added support for existing Btrfs capacity on LVM.
Primary Storage Integrations
- No other installation of the Universal Storage API plug-in is required on any backup console (also a backup server).
- Cisco HyperFlex will not erase the contents of the Snapshot base to improve processing and performance and reduce the storage load.
- Improve the counting function in files for the task bar with a large number of files.
In this version of the Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3a, some bugs have also been resolved to allow Veeam cloud service and Veeam Availability Console to be better served and offered to users through this software.
Also, some support issues have been solved in the Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 3a update, which we will continue to review.
- The UI function for improved environments that includes VM search also reduces CPU utilization when searching for the history of work performed.
- Recovering files through the NFS transfer port no longer requires performing the removal of VMDKs on storage devices with the advanced NFS server.
- Doing a VeeamZIP operation no longer requires Licensing.
- To use incremental backup programs, you do not need to set ctkEnabled’s settings in the True mode, leading to some unwanted processes by vCenter Server.
- Otherwise, SATA X: 7 discs will not be ignored when backing up.
- Windows file level recovery (FLR) restores and restores NTFS files much faster than previous versions.
- Linux FLR in this version should have directories whose names are. And / has to process correctly.
- Direct download to Microsoft Azure in this release should be processed through Linux systems with the EFI boot, which is safer.
- Veeam Explorer supports this version of VMs located in LUNs larger than 16 TB for storing snapshots.
