One of the most exciting features of the Veeam suite version 10, which was released in February, is undoubtedly the Veeam v10 enhanced NAS backup; or what Veeam preferred to called it: “seriously powerful NAS backup.” NAS backups are something that Veeam announced back in 2017, and that finally, with this latest version, is here.
NAS strategies are getting more popular than ever and have been extensively used, not only for SOHO and SMB but for enterprise businesses as well. NAS systems have led the storage industry to deal with a set of workloads such as enterprise applications, virtualization (and similar technologies), and large unstructured data sets. These industry requirements, at the same time, are a hurdle for backups and data availability strategies. It is a challenge to process petabytes unstructured data, scale the components, do a fast-incremental file-level backup, provide data consistency, and finally, make backup inexpensive. Veeam started recognizing these critical challenges in the NAS backup industry, so come out with the “serious powerful NAS backup” feature.
