Veeam V7 Patch 4 – adds support for VSAN and SQL 2014

Just a heads up that Patch 4 for Veeam V7 was released the other day. Looks like it includes a bunch of patches and even a few new features too.

New features include:

  • VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) support: Added full VSAN support and enhanced the intelligent load-balancing engine to account for VSAN specifics, minimizing backup traffic on a VSAN cluster network, and thus reducing impact from backup activities on the production environment.
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014 support: Added support for SQL Server 2014 as the protected guest workload and the back-end database for backup and Enterprise Manager servers.
  • License key auto update: Added an automated license key update option to the license Information dialog. When enabled, backup server will start checking the Veeam licensing server for an updated license key periodically. Once the new key is available, it will be downloaded and installed automatically, eliminating the need for manual import.
