This version is packed with groundbreaking features and was designed to revolutionise how organisations approach data backup. The update aims to ensure resilience against threats and simplify storage management.

Let’s look at the critical features of Veeam v12 and dive into the new update to the Veeam VMCE exam training available with Lumify Work in Australia.

Veeam Version 12's New Features

With the launch of Veeam’s new Backup and Replication v12 earlier this year, organisations have been keen to take full advantage of its new features through training courses. In a blog post, Veeam explains how the updates support improved backup architecture and optimised threat protection. A brief overview of the Veeam Version 12 new features includes the following.

Direct-to-Object Storage
A cornerstone innovation in Veeam v12 is the introduction of direct-to-object storage. This feature empowers organisations to augment their backup capabilities and seamlessly integrate with cloud-based solutions by storing backup data directly to object storage systems without redundant copies or archives. This enhancement is a game-changer for adhering to essential security requirements like the 3-2-1 rule, offering a fresh perspective on data backup strategy.

Enhanced Security
Considering how rampant cyber security threats have become, Veeam v12 strongly emphasises enhancing data defences.

VCD-to-VCD Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
One of the standout features introduced in Veeam v12 is the VCD-to-VCD Continuous Data Protection (CDP), a game-changing advancement for service providers leveraging VMware Cloud Director. This feature is designed to minimise downtime and mitigate the risk of data loss by enabling multi-tenant CDP within Cloud Director.

Veeam Backup & Replication v12 is at the forefront of data management and security, introducing transformative features catering to modern enterprises' dynamic needs. Direct-to-object storage and enhanced security measures redefine how organisations approach data backup, providing simplicity, flexibility, and robust protection against evolving threats.

For those responsible for configuring, managing, or supporting Veeam environments, embracing the power of v12 is not just an upgrade – it's a strategic leap towards a more secure and efficient data management future.

And to assist professionals in harnessing the full potential of Veeam's latest offering, Lumify Work has introduced the Veeam® Backup & Replication™ v12: Configure, Manage and Recover training course.
