request compression capabilities for free endpoint backup

Post by dcm-ebb » Nov 17, 2016 3:24 pm

I am using the free endpoint backup for a few key users. I am looking to get a compression capability, similar to what is available in Backup & Recovery.

Are there any plans to roll this out? I love the ability to integrate the free endpoint backup with the repository for B & R. Willing to pay for compression feature if that is what is necessary.

Any plans for a paid version of endpoint backup that will give additional capabilities?

Hi Ed,
Welcome to community! Compression is enabled by default in VEB but it works per job.

Sure. We will have a new Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0 (former Veeam Endpoint Backup) in Free, Workstation and Server modes with different sets of features.

I see what I was doing wrong with the backup. I had some extra drives on a few of the VMs so it looked like the backups were not compressing, when in reality they were filled with more data than needed. I did a fresh volume level backup and am getting same compression rates as with the machines I am backing up using Backup & Replication. I am a very satisfied customer, very much looking forward to see what comes in the next iteration.
