Public Beta has not been distributed yet.
Don't worry you'll hear when it's available for sure, since now you registered. And our blog will have the announcement published the day it will be available.
After that date, this forum will be the main platform to discuss about it.

thanks,
Luca

Hi Folks,

Any news yet on Linux Endpoint? I think originally there was talk of mid April.

Thanks

Hi,

Yes, we've released internal alpha in April.
Public beta will be available in June.

Thanks!

Hi,

64-bit and 32-bit OS with kernel version 2.6.32 or later:
• RedHat and derivatives (CentOS etc.)
• Debian and derivatives (Ubuntu etc.)

You can backup all major filesystems.

Thanks.

What is the expected date for the GA for Veeam Endpoint Linux to be release for customer to test it out?

We are current customer who run veeam backup vmware.

The GA date depends on the results of the beta we're releasing next month (as PTide says above), it would be more clear on the date closer to the actual release.

Has any testing been done on SUSE linux at all?

I'd love a clean way to backup our vCenter server appliance that integrated into the rest of our Veeam ecosystem

Yes, some testing has been done on SUSE, however not as extensive as on RedHat and Debain distros, that is, Veeam Backup for Linux should work on SUSE but is not officially supported in Beta.

Thanks

Also, in regards to VCSA, as a virtual machine it can be protected by using VBR, Dave why are you looking at Veeam Backup for Linux for this task?

We run our vCenter and it's dependencies (SQL, a dedicated DC/GC etc) on a dedicated server which we'd rather not have to license the CPU's in for Veeam. This was a legacy decision based around the fact that this vCenter covers a number of sites and we didn't want a failure at our main site to kill vCenter for the entire organisation. But it's hard to justify 2 CPU licenses for 3 or 4 VM's. It's unlikely when the machine itself comes up for renewal that we'll continue this tradition as with Veeam we have so many more ways to protect these systems on our main cluster than we ever did with Backup Exec. But for now, it's what I'm stuck with.
