I was on vacation last week and received the great news that Veeam had delivered the patch for Veeam Backup and Replication version 7 that will extend support for VMware vSphere 5.5, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows 8.1. At least those are the ones that I am looking forward to. I want to give a big SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to the Veeam Support Team for working tirelessly to deliver support for the latest platforms. I have to say that every time I call Veeam for support I get very informative and knowledgable support technicians who handle my incidents with great attention to detail and solutions. I love the follow-up emails to ensure that I am good to go. I always sell the support with Veeam Backup and Replication for my clients because they release patches like this one to keep my clients as up-to-date as they want to be and whenever I run into an issue I know I will have a good experience getting it resolved. So, thank you Veeam!
So, if you are running Veeam I highly recommend staying up-to-date to be ready for your clients infrastructure when it is time to update them to VMware vSphere 5.5, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows 8.1. First ensure you are on version 22.214.171.1240 or 126.96.36.1995 and then install the patch linked below to be on version 188.8.131.524.
