I am currently testing the RTM of VAW 2.0 and very happy with the results so far. Especially pleased with backup direct to cloud repository and the ability to restore VAW 2.0 backups as vmware or hyper-v virtual disks. I have been able to perform several complete recoveries into VMWare and Hyper-v with minimal post recovery "tweaking".
I would like to be able to deploy VAW as a replacement for a competing product we use at several of our customer's sites; however, there seems to be no facility to create and schedule (2) different types of backups. The current product we use for physical servers allows the cloud backup job to not only backup directly to the cloud, but retain a local copy. Both the local copy and the cloud copy can have different retention policies. So far, with VAW 2.0, I am only able to configure a single job per server/workstation. I understand that I could use Veeam B&R installed locally as the backup repository, then use backup copy from B&R to copy to our Cloud Connect server, but this makes the solution more costly to the customer. Additionally, the competing product is "agentless" and thus can perform backups of the entire network from a "single pane of glass". Also, there is no charge for the agent that performs the backup.
Am I missing something? Is it possible to define and create more than one type of backup job with VAW 2.0? If not, any plans to accomodate this in the near future?
