VCSP Important Notice: 9.5 Update 3 RTM Is Out…With Insider Protection and more!

Earlier this week, Veeam made available to our VCSP partners the RTM of Update 3 for Backup & Replication 9.5 (Build 9.5.0.1335). Update 3 is what we term a breaking update, meaning that if a Cloud Connect tenant upgrades from any previous 9.5 version before VCSPs this will break backup or replication functionality. With that in mind the RTM has been made available for our VCSP partners to ensure it is installed and tested before being pushed out to production before the GA release. Veeam Backup & Replication releases from 8.0 (build 8.0.0.2084) can write backups to a cloud repository on 9.5 Update 3, and any release from 9.0 (build 9.0.0.902) can write replicas to a cloud host on 9.5 Update 3.

Update 3 is a very significant update and contains a number of enhancements and known issue fixes with a lot of those enhancements aimed at improving the scalability of the Backup & Replication platform that VCSPs can take advantage of. One important note is around new licensing for Cloud Connect Backup that all VCSPs should be aware of. There is a detailed post in the VCSP Forums and there will be emails sent to explains the changes.

We have also pushed out a number new features for our VCSPs with two of them highlighted below. One of which is the new Insider Protection feature or Recycle Bin for Cloud Connect Backups and the other is the a long awaited ask from our providers in the Maintenance Mode for Cloud Connect.

  • Insider protection: Option to hold backups deleted from a tenant’s cloud repository in a “recycle bin” folder for a designated period of time. For more information, see this post in the VCSP forum.

    • Maintenance Mode: Allows you to temporarily stop tenant backup and backup copy tasks from writing to cloud repositories. Already running tenant tasks are allowed to finish, but new tenant tasks fail with an error message indicating that the service provider infrastructure is undergoing maintenance. This is supported at the tenant end in 9.5 Update 3 GA, Agent for Windows 2.1 and Agent for Linux 2.0.

There has also been a lot of work to improve and enhance scalability in the Backup & Replication Cloud Connect functionality to accomodate the increasing usage of Veeam Agent for Windows of which there is a new version (2.1) coming in early December and prepare for the release of Veeam Agent for Linux (2.0) that will include support for backups to be sent to Cloud Connect repositories. For the recently released Veeam Availability Console, Update 3 is 100% compatible with the 2.0 GA (Build 2.0.1.1319) released last week and is good from Update 2 or later.

Conclusion:

Once again, Update 3 for Veeam Backup & Replication is an important update to apply for VCSPs running Cloud Connect services in preparation for the GA release which will happen in about two weeks. Once released I’ll link to the VeeamKB for a detailed look at the fixes but for the moment, if you have the ability to download the update do so and have it applied to your instances. For more info in the RTM, head to the VCSP Forum post here.

Veeam Availability Console – What’s in it for Service Providers

Today, the Veeam Availability Console was made GA meaning that after a long wait our new multi-tenant service provider management and reporting platform is available for download. VAC is an significant evolution of the Managed Backup Portal that was released in 2016 and acts as a central portal for Veeam Cloud and Service Providers to remotely manage and monitor customer instances of Backup & Replication including the ability to monitor Cloud Connect Backup and Replication jobs and failover plans. It also is the central mechanism to deploy and manage (Windows) agents which includes the ability to install agents onto on-premises machines and apply policies to those agents once deployed.

Veeam® Availability Console is a cloud-enabled platform built specifically for Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners and resellers looking to launch a managed services business. Through its ability to remotely provision, manage and monitor virtual, physical and cloud-based Veeam environments without any special connectivity requirements, Veeam Availability Console enables you to increase revenue and add value to all your customers.

  • Simplified Setup – now allowing on-premises installs
  • Remote backup agent management and monitoring
  • Remote discovery and deployment with enhanced support for Veeam Cloud Connect
  • Web-based multi-tenant portal
  • Native billing and RESTful APIs
Cloud Connect Requirement:

The Cloud Connect Gateway is central to how the Veeam Availability Console operates and all management traffic is tunneled through the Cloud Connect Gateways. If you are a current VCSP offering Cloud Connect services then you already have the infrastructure in place to facilitate VAC, however if you are not a Cloud Connect partner you can apply for a special key that will enable you to deploy a Gateway without the need for specific Cloud Connect backup or Replication licenses.

For a deeper look at VAC architecture for Service Providers, head to Luca Dell’Oca’s VAC series here.

Designed for Service Providers First:

The Veeam Availability Console was designed from the ground up for Service Providers (there is an Enterprise version available) and contains a rich set of APIs that can be consumed for automation and provisioning purposes. There is also a three tier multi-tenancy design allowing VCSPs the ability to create restricted accounts for their partners or resellers from which in turn, another level of accounts can be created for their customers or tenants.

The multi-tenancy aspect means that partners/resellers and customers can control their own backups centrally from the console. Reporting on backup jobs can be viewed and a mechanism to control those jobs is available allowing retry/stop/start tasks against those jobs. If that’s not enough control or more troubleshooting on failed jobs needs to be done the Remote Console feature introduced in Veeam Backup & Replication Update 2 has been integrated into the console.

VAC also includes built in reporting and billing functionality which enables VCSPs who don’t have the capability for automated reporting and billing to offer that to their customers. The reporting can be accessed via the API meaning that if an existing billing engine is being used there is the possibility to have that interface with VAC to pull out key data points.

The Service Provider Opportunity:

Over the past year I’ve talked a lot about the opportunity that exists for Veeam’s Cloud and Service Providers to take advantage of the opportunity that exists with Veeam’s Agents to capture backups for workloads that previously were out of reach. VAC is central to this and opens up the ability to backup instances that live on-premises (physical or virtual) or in any public cloud hyper-scaler or otherwise.

If you are a reseller looking to cash in on the growing data availability market then you should be looking at how VAC can help you get started by leveraging the features mentioned above . Secondly, if you a reseller and not running Cloud Connect Backup or Replication then the time is right to start looking at getting Cloud Connect deployed and start generating revenue around backup and replication services.

For those existing VCSPs that are offering Cloud Connect services, adding VAC into the mix will allow you to take advantage of the agent opportunity that exists as shown above while also adding value to your existing Managed Backup and Cloud Connect services.

Awarded vExpert Cloud – A New vExpert Sub Program

Last week Corey Romero announced the inaugural members of the vExpert Cloud sub-program. This is the third vExpert sub-program following the vSAN and NSX programs announced last year. There are 135 initial vExpert Cloud members who have been awarded the title. As it so happens I am now a member of all three which reflects on the focus I’ve had and still have around VMware’s cloud, storage and networking products leading up to and after my move to Veeam last year.

Even with my move, that hasn’t stopped me working around these VMware vertices as Veeam works closely with VMware to offer supportability and integration with vCloud Director as well as being certified with vSAN for data protection. And more recently as it pertains specifically to the vExpert Cloud program, we are going to be supporting vCloud
Director in v10 of Backup & Replication for Cloud Connect Replication and also at VMworld 2017 we where announced as a launch partner for data protection for VMware Cloud on AWS.

For those wondering what does it take to be a part of the vExpert Cloud program:

We are looking for vExperts who are evangelizing VMware Cloud and delivering on the principles of the multi-cloud world being the new normal. Specificity we are looking for community activities which follow the same format as the vExpert program (blogs, books, videos, public speaking, VMUG Leadership, conference sessions speaking and so on).

And in terms of the focus of the vExpert Cloud program:

The program is focused on VMware Cloud influencer activities, VMware, AWS and other cloud environments and use of the products and services in way that delivers the VMware Cloud reality of consistency across multi-cloud environments.

Again, thank you to Corey and team for the award and I look forward to continuing to spread the community messaging around Cloud, NSX and vSAN.

VeeamON 2017 Wrap

VeeamON 2017 has come and gone and even though I left New Orleans on Friday afternoon, I just arrived back home…54 hours of travel, transit and delays has meant that my VeeamOFF continued longer than most! What an amazing week it was though for Veeam, our partners and our customers…The announcements that we made over the course of the event have been extremely well received and it’s clear to me that the Availability Platform vision that we first talked about last year is in full execution mode.

The TPM team executed brilliantly and along with the core team and the other 300 Veeam employee’s that where in New Orleans it was great to see all the hard work pay off. The Technical Evangelist’s main stage live demo’s all went off (if not for some dodgy HDMI) without a hitch and we all felt privileged to be able to demo some of the key announcements. On a personal note, It was a career highlight to be able to present to approximately 2000 people and be part of a brand new product launch for Veeam with Veeam PN.

From a networking point of view it was great to meet so many new people and put faces to Twitter handles. It was also great to see the strong Veeam Vanguard representation at the event and even though I couldn’t party with the group like previous years, it looked like they got a lot out of week, both from a Veeam technical point of view and without doubt on the social front…I was living vicariously through them as they where partying hard in New Orleans.

VeeamON Key Announcements:

Availability Suit 10

  • Built-in Management for Veeam Agent for Linux and Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows
  • Scale-Out Backup Repository — Archive Tier
  • NAS Backup Support for SMB and NFS Shares
  • Veeam CDP (Continuous Data Protection)
  • Primary Storage Integrations — Universal Storage Integration API
  • DRaaS Enhancements (for service providers)
  • Additional enterprise scalability enhancements

For me, the above list shows our ongoing commitment to the Enterprise but more importantly for me working on enhancing our platform so that our Veeam Cloud and Service Providers can continue to leverage our technology to create and offer cloud based Disaster Recovery and Backup services.

Product Announcements and Releases:

I have been lucky enough to work as the TPM lead on Veeam PN and I was extremely excited to be able to demo it for the first time to the world. I’ve written a blog post here that goes into some more detail around Veeam PN and if you want to view the main stage demo I’ve linked to the video in the last section…I start the demo at the 29th minute mark if you want to skip through.

vCloud Director Cloud Connect Enhancements:

As mentioned above we have enhanced core capabilities in v10 when it comes to Cloud Connect Replication and Cloud Connect Backup. Obviously, the announcement that we will be supporting vCloud Director is significant and one that a lot of our Cloud and Service Providers are extremely happy with. It just makes the DRaaS experience that much more complete and when you add that to the CDP features in the core platform which will allow for sub minute RPO’s for replica’s it firmly places Cloud Connect as the market leader in Replication as a Service technologies.

We also announced backup to tape features for Cloud Connect Backup which will allow Cloud and Service Providers to offload long term backup files to cheaper storage. Note that this isn’t limited to tape if used in conjunction with a Virtual Tape Library. Hopefully our VCSP’s can create revenue generating service offerings around this feature as well.

VCSP Council Meeting:

On Thursday, our R&D leads met with a select group of our top Cloud and Service Provider partners over a three hour lunch meeting which could have gone all day if time permitted. It was great to be on the other side of the fence for the first time and hear all the great feedback, advice and suggestions from the group. It’s encouraging to hear about how Veeam Backup & Replication had become the central platform for IaaS, Cloud Replication an Backup offerings and with the v10 enhancements I expect that to be even more the case moving forward.

Main Stage Recordings:

Wednesday and Thursday morning both saw main stage general sessions where we announced our new products and features along with keynotes from Sanjay Poonen and Mark Russinovich as well as co-CEO Peter McKay and co-founder Ratmir Timashev. They are worth a look and I’ve posted links to the video recordings below. Note that they are unedited and contain all change overs and wait times.

Press Releases:

Veeam DRaaS v10 Enhancements: vCloud Director Support!

Today at VeeamON 2017 we announced two very important enhancements to our DRaaS capabilities around Cloud Connect Replication and Tape Backup for our Veeam Cloud and Service Provider partners that help customer minimize the cost and reduce recovery times during a disaster. The press release can be found here, however as you could imagine I wanted to talk a little bit about the vCloud Director support.

A lot of service providers have been asking us to support vCloud Director in Veeam Cloud Connect Replication and I’m very happy to write that today we announced that v10 of Backup & Replication will have support for replica’s to be replicated and brought up into at service providers vCloud Director environment.

This is a significant enhancement to Cloud Connect replication end even with it being somewhat of a no brainer I am still sure it will make many VCSP people happy. With vCloud Director support in v10 tenants can now replace existing hardware plans with vCloud Director Virtual Datacenter resources. A tenant can either leverage an existing virtual datacenter or have the service provider create a dedicated one for the purpose of replication.

While Cloud Connect Replication was a strong product already with industry leading networking and ease of use, the flexibility that can be harnessed by tenants (and service providers) through the vCD platform means that there is even more control when a failover takes place. Look out for more information on our vCD integration as the v10 release gets closer…again for me, this is huge and bring’s together two of the best platforms for cloud based services even closer!

VCSP Important Notice: 9.5 Update 2 RTM Is Out…With Remote Access and more!

Last Friday, Veeam made available to our VCSP partners the RTM of Update 2 for Backup & Replication 9.5 (Build 9.5.0.1038). Update 2 for Backup & Replication is what we term a breaking update, meaning that if a Cloud Connect client upgrades from the 9.5 GA (9.5.0.711) or Update 1 (9.5.0.823) this will break backup or replication functionality. With that in mind the RTM has been made available for our VCSP partners to ensure it is installed and tested before being pushed out to production before the GA release. Veeam Backup & Replication releases from 8.0 (build 8.0.0.817) can write backups to a cloud repository on 9.5 Update 2, and any release from 9.0 (build 9.0.0.902) can write replicas to a cloud host on 9.5 Update 2.

Update 2 is a fairly significant update and contains a number of enhancements and bug fixes with a lot of those enhancements aimed at improving the scalability of the Backup & Replication platform that VCSPs can take advantage of. The biggest and most anticipated update is for the support of the upcoming Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, but we also pushed out an awesome feature for our VCSPs to help manage their client or tenant Cloud Connect jobs or in fact manage their remote Veeam Backup & Replication instances with Remote Access.

VCSP and Cloud Connect Features and Enhancements:

Below are the main VCSP related features and enhancements included in Update 2. For a full list, head to the Veeam Cloud and Service Provider channels of the Veeam forum. For VCSPs with more than 300 connections there is a post regarding tweaks for improving performance at scale.

Core

  • Veeam Backup Remote Access: Full remote management of Veeam Backup & Replication installations at customer sites with a Veeam backup console or Microsoft RDP client over the existing Cloud Connect tunnel.
  • Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows integration: Full support for Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0, including direct backup to a cloud repository backed by Veeam Cloud Connect. This includes the introduction of separate workstation and server counters for Cloud Connect Backup
  • Usage reporting enhancements: Usage reports are now saved in two formats, CSV and PDF.

Cloud Connect

  • Major scalability improvements: In light of support for direct agent backups, numerous optimizations to the Cloud Connect framework on both the service provider and the tenant sides have been introduced to significantly increase its scalability (including number of concurrent tenant jobs per Cloud Connect server) and reliability large at scale. The release was tested with 1000 concurrent agent backups per single Cloud Connect instance. Reaching this number may require applying additional tweaks, please refer to this post for more information.
  • Improved reporting and monitoring: Better visibility from the service provider side into Cloud Connect tenant jobs, including current job activity and statistics such as current rate and amount of data sent and received.

Cloud Connect Replication

  • Improved failback performance: Failback to the original location can now optionally leverage VMware changed block tracking information, instead of scanning the entire VM disks to determine the difference, improving failback performance up to 20 times.
  • Hardware plan enhancements: Added the ability to increase a number of networks assigned to the Hardware Plan after it has been created.

Important Note for Veeam One Users:

As mentioned in the VCSP forum digest this week, there is a patch available for Veeam One which enables compatibility with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 2. This hotfix must be deployed to any Veeam ONE server that is monitoring Cloud Connect services…it doesn’t need to be installed on instances not monitoring Cloud Connect services.

Conclusion:

Once again, this is an important update to apply for VCSPs running Cloud Connect services in preparation for the GA release which will happen in about two weeks. Once released I’ll link to the VeeamKB for a detailed look at the fixes but for the moment, if you have the ability to download the update do so and have it applied to your instances.

Veeam Cloud Connect Backup: What are Subtenant’s?

When Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 was released, there where a lot of significant features added to enhance Veeam Cloud Connect Backup and Replication. One of the lesser known features that came out in 9.5 was the addition of Cloud Connect Subtenants. This in effect was a pre-seeded feature for our Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows that went into public beta earlier in the year and is set to GA sometime in Q2 of 2017.

Subtenants can be configured by either the VCSP or by the tenant consuming a Cloud Connect Backup service. Subtenants are used to carve up and assign a subset of the parent tenant storage quota. This allows individual agents to authenticate against the Cloud Connect service with a unique login allowing backups to Cloud Repositories that can be managed and monitored from the Backup & Replication console.

End users on the tenant side can connect to the SP and create backups on the cloud repository under the tenant account. However, it is recommended to provide every tenant-side user with a separate subtenant account. In this case, the tenant or SP can allocate storage resources on the cloud repository individually for every subtenant so that subtenants’ data is stored in the cloud in an isolated and segregated way

Note that a subtenant account can not be used to connect directly to a Cloud Connect Service Provider from the Backup & Replication console and is only intended for use with the agents. If you try to do that you will see the error below:

As a Veeam Cloud Service Provider offering Cloud Connect Backup services it’s important that if not done so already…start wrapping your heads around the subtenant construct and how it works with Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows (currently in beta) as you want to be in a position to take advantage of them for when Veeam Agent for Windows does go GA.

Stay tuned to veeam.com for more blog posts around the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows ability to backup to Cloud Connect repositories using subtenants and also keep an eye out on my fellow team member, Clint Wyckoff’s blog cdubhub.us for some great upcoming content around all things Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows.

World Backup Day …We should be thinking Availability #WAD

Yesterday (30th of March) was Veeam’s World Availability Day. This is a day that Veeam has declared to make people aware about how availability plays a part in all organizations as an extension of Backup and Replication. In it’s self, WAD is a marketing initiative from us here at Veeam that backs onto World Backup Day…which is happening today (31st of March).

Veeam celebrates World Availability Day in recognition of the fact that for modern businesses and service providers, it’s not only about having backups of data anymore, it’s about being Available. Veeam helps organizations of any size and shape to achieve Availability for both their virtual and physical infrastructures, as well as provide data protection solutions in the cloud, whether private, public or hybrid.

World Backup Day focuses around Backup but you can’t forget that replication plays a critical roll in organizations ensuring they are covered for disaster with low recovery times via RaaS and DraaS service offerings. Cloud Connect Replication offered by our Veeam Cloud and Service Providers offers industry leading replication platform and all Veeam customers can take advantage of Cloud Connect as it’s baked right into the core Backup & Replication product.

For those not aware, Veeam has a Find a Veeam Cloud Provider Directory that lets you search for any of our listed VCSPs based on criteria that is relevant to your backup or replication needs.

https://www.veeam.com/find-a-veeam-cloud-provider.html

More on Veeam Cloud Connect Replication:

Advanced image-based VM replication through Veeam Cloud Connect is simple to set up and easy to use through a VCSP and is as easy to setup as going to the Service Providers menu in the Veeam Backup & Replication console and choosing your service provider of choice. Once set up you have access to hardware plans that provide compute, storage and networking resources at the service provider end to which you can configure cloud replication jobs and manage failover scenarios by way of failover plans.

When looking at disaster recovery testing and failover, one of the biggest challenges is in the networking. Generally speaking, there is complexity that surrounds ensuring VM replicas that are brought up at a disaster recovery site have the right networking in order for their applications and services to work. With the Network Extension Appliance, the tenant has the ability to map the internal VM networks as well as configure and publish external services to ensures seamless transition to the VM replicas during a failover.

Data protection and disaster recovery tasks targeted at the cloud host are performed by tenants. Tenants can set up necessary replication jobs and perform failover operations on Veeam backup servers deployed on their side. Tenants can perform the following operations:

  • Replicate VMs to the cloud host
  • Perform failover tasks with VM replicas on the cloud host
  • Full site failover, when all critical production VMs fail over to their replicas on the cloud host in case the whole production site becomes unavailable
  • Partial site failover, when one or several VMs become corrupted and fail over to their replicas on the cloud host
  • Perform failback tasks with VM replicas on the cloud host.

Tasks associated with full site failover can be performed either by the tenant or by the service provider or through a Cloud Connect Portal hosted by the service provider that offers failover/failback operations. This flexibility allows the service provider to test the full site failover process and switch tenant’s production site to the cloud hosts upon request in the case that the tenant has no access to the backup infrastructure after a disaster. Ensuring that failover from the replica VM is successful is critically important, but there should also be a way back to access the on-premises infrastructure. Cloud Connect Replication features an option to easily failback to the primary infrastructure, by copying only data blocks changed while replica VMs were running on the service provider infrastructure.

Reminder: Veeam and its partners are giving away $200 MILLION in Cloud services ($1,000 USD per customer)!

Veeam and its VCSP partners are giving away $1,000 in FREE Cloud Services to each and every one of our +230K customers using Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup Essentials.

Because of this unprecedented offer, right now is the BEST TIME to try backup and DRaaS in the cloud. You can avoid the cost and complexity of building and maintaining your off-site infrastructure while meeting business and regulatory requirements for off-site backup and DR.

Visit the FREE Cloud services promo page to learn more about this offer.

Cloud Connect Replication Partial Failover – Example

Veeam Cloud Connect Replication has been part of Veeam’s Backup & Replication product since version 9 was released in early 2016 and like Cloud Connect Backup before it, Replication is starting to get traction in the market due to it’s ease of use, intuitive interface and best of breed disaster recovery networking technologies that are all baked into the core Backup & Replication product.

Without doubt one of the best/little known features of VCCR is the partial failover. Most disaster recovery scenarios focus on the total failure of all systems due to natural events or localised datacenter issues however the most common outage occurs at an virtual machine or instance level…this is generally an issue with the application or the operating system. With that, the ability to failover a single VM at a time is an often overlooked feature when looking into replication and disaster recovery platforms.

Veeam provides partial failovers within Cloud Connect Replication and once a VM has a replica copied up to the cloud provider you have the ability to perform a partial failover. I’ve created a video showing the process involved to initiate a partial failover which starts the VM replica up in the cloud providers hosting platform and then creates a L2 Tunnel via Network Extension Appliances that are deployed at the production and cloud ends. For an explanation of the Network Extension Appliance click here. Without diving into the specifics of what’s happening underneath the surface the NEAs talk to each other via the Cloud Connect Gateway and bridge the layer 2 network providing layer 3 access so that the replica VM that’s been partially failed over can communicate with VMs on the production network and vice versa.

This effectively means services and applications will be available over the internet without the need to employ expensive WAN connectivity mechanisms…the NEAs do all the work for you. In the demo video I am simulating the failure of a VM that hosts a WordPress site. That VM is brought up at the cloud providers end and, as can be seen in the video is shown to be running in a failed over state. From there I trigger a failback which replicates any changes made at the cloud end during the failover state back to the production site on premises. Once I am happy I commit the failback and the VM resumes normal operations on-premises.

The uptake of Cloud Connect Replication through Veeam’s VCSPs has been steady and we are seeing the number of replication VM licenses reported gather pace and grow month on month. As the Backup and Disaster Recovery markets mature I fully expect Cloud Connect to be a central part of our customers 3-2-1 rule of backup and availability with Cloud Connect Replication becoming the best of breed Replication/Disaster Recovery as a Service offering in the market.
