Veeam Backup and Replication v8, now also titled as Availability Suite v8, is scheduled for Q3/2014, more specific it is scheduled to be GA in September.

Veeam will follow it's traditional way and will reveil new features on a per-month base so you will get information on new features bit by bit.

For now, four new features are already known to be included with v8:

  • Support for NetApp/EMC snapshots. This will be a big thing within NetApp environments and can be seen as a real competitor to NetApps SnapManager Suite
  • Veeam Explorer for SQL. This will bring the ease of use you already know from the Explorer for Exchange and Sharepoint to SQL. A realy cool feature and will definetly make life easier for all SQL restores
  • Veeam Explorer for AD objects. As like the other explorers now restore of AD objects is also supported without the need for AIR
  • Replication enhancements. Now WAN acceleration can also be used for replicas and not only for backup copy jobs.

I'm very curious about v8 as v7 was already a milestone in the Veeam history and since v8 will include even more features than v7 this tool will probably be something you definetly want in your virtual environment.

Here is the official announcement from Veeam if you need further information:

At Veeam every launch is bigger and better than the one before – because we add more innovative features matched by no other vendor and we provide more customer value delivering 101,000 customers and counting. Our v8 launch coming in Q3 is no exception!

It is our biggest yet because in addition to features like Veeam Explorers, integration with NetApp and EMC, replication enhancements and more – all coming in v8 in Q3 – we’re introducing a whole new category of protection. We’re further separating Veeam from traditional Backup vendors, and other more expensive business continuity providers, by defining.

Availability for the Modern Data Center

Today’s business environment is changing. Connected customers, partners, suppliers, and employees demand access to information and applications at any time and from any device, with no tolerance for downtime or data loss. IT organizations must enable the Always-On Business™ by making data and applications available 24/7.

Being Always-On typically means significant investment in fully redundant systems with instant failover capabilities protecting only the most critical applications. Or, businesses settle for less expensive legacy backup solutions with recovery objectives (RPOs and RTOs) of several hours or days. Both options fail to meet the needs of the Always-On Business – creating an availability gap.

Veeam bridges the availability gap by leveraging the capabilities of the modern data center – including virtualization, new storage integration, and cloud capabilities – providing Recovery Time and Point Objective (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes. Veeam delivers Availability for the Modern Data Center™, including:

  • High Speed Recovery
  • Data Loss Avoidance
  • Verified Protection
  • Risk Mitigation
  • Complete Visibility

NEW Veeam Availability Suite™

RTPO <15 min. For ALL Applications.

How do customers get Availability for the Modern Data Center? Today – customers buy Veeam Backup & Replication™ or one of our Suites. With the launch of v8 in Q3 customers will buy our NEW Veeam Availability Suite™! This suite replaces Veeam Backup Management Suite™ – same price, same editions, same features – but with a new name aligned with our new messaging. (No changes to Veeam Backup & Replication™ and Veeam ONE SKUs – still are available)
