I don't believe there's a specific date just yet, but it's still being said Q3 of this year.

It's late Q3 for RTM now, so probably early Q4 for GA. We have decided to provide our partners with the RTM code a few weeks before GA, to let them prepare.

Same here, file to tape makes the product unusable. Need to go back to BE?

Happy to share these results I have just received from a beta tester.

Backing up the same folder:

v7 took 91 hours 47 minutes 36 seconds to process:
5250 directories and 96066 files backed up successfully (total size 65.5 GB)

v8 took 2 hours 10 minutes 50 seconds to process:
5733 directories and 95980 files backed up successfully (total size 67.7 GB)

Which makes v8 over 40 times faster than v7 processing when processing a bunch of small files ;)

Holy smokes has it improved! Works beautifully for my couple hundred thousand files (in v8).

Thanks Veeam!

Kudos to our R&D team for working hard to enhance our files to tape backup engine. The current version should work much faster with multiple small files, indeed. Thank you for confirming that!

Nice to read tape jobs in v8 seems to work speedier than in v7.
I'm downloading the v8 and I will install it soon.
I will give you feed back ASAP.

FXE,
How did it go? We recognized real improvements, for instance: In v7 we had a file to tape job, that took 7 days to complete and in v8 it takes 17 hours. :D

Hello,
I've not tested files backup to tape yet.
In fact, following the v7 to v8 migration many issues appeared (install issue, Veeam ONE issues, Catalog replication issue, ...). The Veeam support is working to resolve them.
As soon as my issues will be resolved, I will going to test backup to tape.

Hi all,
Most issues impacted my Veeam environment are now resolved.
And I can appreciate the speed of "files to tape" backup. But even if the files seems to be correctly backed up, an error message appears for several files :
"Task full_file_path failed: Transaction (Process ID 51) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction."

It seems to be a SQL error message. What about that ?
Should I open a case for this ?
Thank you.

Hi, it is not a know issue at this point, so yes - please open a support case for investigation. Thanks!

It's not bye bye Symantec until you pass your compliance period of Symantec backup and totally relying on Veeam with successful restoration of your backup. :D
