Veeam introduces free backup for VMware and Hyper-V with “the new FastSCP”


News Facts:

Veeam Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, introduces the successor to its widely used free FastSCPTM tool: Veeam BackupTM Free Edition. (How did it all begin? Read the blog post about the history of FastSCP at The new free product, released in conjunction with Veeam Backup & ReplicationTM 6.1, offers ad-hoc backups of VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs).

• The capabilities of Veeam Backup Free Edition address tasks that VM admins deal with every day:
  o VeeamZIP™: Ad-hoc backup of a running VM for operational, archival or portability purposes. For example, admins can now back up a VM before applying patches, create an archive copy of a VM, or copy a VM to a remote test lab—without powering off the production VM.

  o Instant File-Level Recovery: Restore individual guest files directly from an image-level backup.

  o File Manager: Easily manage VM and host files.

  o Quick Migration for VMware: Migrate a running VM to any host or datastore—even if you don’t use clusters or shared storage.

• Also now available is Veeam Backup & Replication 6.1 with new capabilities:

  o vPower® and Instant VM Recovery for Hyper-V: Enables IT to boot and run a VM directly from a compressed, deduped backup file, in a matter of minutes, so business can continue undisrupted during the restore of the VM back into the production environment.

  o SCVMM 2012 Support: Extends support for System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 to System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager. SCVMM support streamlines discovery and ensures protection of VMs managed by SCVMM.

  o Updated UI and Additional Enhancements: Designed based on user requests and Veeam R&D innovation. The updated UI is an evolution, not a complete re-design. Current users will still be able to use all of their existing jobs, settings and the workflow for the wizards has not changed.
