Any closer to an ETA for Veeam v10 ?

Veeam Logoby SteeleTek » Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:41 pm

Greetings,

I read estimates of late 2017 or early 2018 for Veeam v10. Since we're now in Q4 2017, is there any "unofficial" ETA for v10?

Thanks!!

I wonder why there are no new infos about new features? With 9.5 the closer we got to release the more information about new features came out...

Hi, all

It is best not to think about v10 as a single huge release as we had historically, because we're in the process of switching to the new development model similar to the current Windows development model, with periodic feature rich updates. For example, we will deliver a big part of "v10" features in the upcoming 9.5 Update 3, then even more "v10" features in 9.5 Update 4, etc. So the build that will eventually carry "v10" version (if we even have versions still) may actually only add one or two remaining features, with the rest of the announced features already introduced in the previous updates.

The primary reason is that with the amount of features we're building at the same time these days (thanks to the development team size), it is really hard to time them to the given major release without having some features holding other for half a year or more due to varying feature complexity.

Another reason is that our legacy approach with fixed yearly release cycle really constrained our innovation and made it impossible to jump new cool ideas "on the fly". But the new approach will give us ability, for example, to add a few simple but very innovative features that we've just came up with recently, based on the feedback and some market shifts of the past months, right in the immediate updates.

Of course, we will see how is it going to work for us and our customers, and revise this new paradigm as needed. However, those of you who watched B&R development closely, probably noticed how we have been moving to this model in the past couple of years already, with every B&R update becoming more and more feature rich. This approach with periodic incremental enhancements was very well received by our customer base because it also helps from reliability perspective, by containing the introduced changes to only a part of the product functionality, by allowing us to quickly address pressing support issues with a public update, etc.

Thanks!

Aah Gostev, now you have me wondering when Update 3 is coming and what will be included.... haha,

There are some critical features in v10 which I really need, such as NAS backup and the Central Management for Physical backup (I mean the configure backup selections etc). Hence why I am ( and I am sure many others ) are really excited about.

So any bait you can feed us in terms of Update 3? I have heard of it, but not much about it, that I have seen

Centralized management for physical backup is in fact a part of Update 3... which is feature complete now and we're going through the remaining bugs, so we're talking just a few weeks until RTM now.

With this new "agile" Development cycle, will it affect the way certifications work and renewal of it (I'm thinking VMCE)?

There is going to be alot of features in 9.5 Update 4, that I didnt learn about on my 9.0 VMCE course....

Sounds very promising.
Hope the IBM Storwize integration, makes it into the earlier release.

Yes, IBM Storwize integration is also a part of Update 3. And remember that this integration is not limited to Storwize only - it works with any SVC-based storage, including Lenovo models and SVC installed on general-purpose servers from IBM HCL.

@Gostev, a thousand thank yous for making centralized management for physical backup a part of Update 3 - very much looking forward to it. :D

Are you able provide any status on Journaling, i.e. which update or release?

Just tossing my 2 cents in as well: very much looking forward to a proper NAS backup solution in v10. That's what's preventing us from fully dumping Commvault and going to Veeam. Looking forward to it!

+1 on this. I basically have an old Backup Exec sitting around just to handle our physicals and NAS storage.... But Ill take what I can for now :) Look forward to this release.

Failover cluster support is also a part of Update 3. Yep, it's going to be pretty huge release for an update :D
