Veeam Software announced the general availability of new Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2. The latest version expands its powerful orchestration and automation capabilities to a broader set of applications and VMs, helping organizations address a variety of operational and disaster recovery (DR) and data migration scenarios. Never have organizations been so dependent on their data and yet DR used to only be achievable by the largest of enterprises or for only the most critical applications. With the unique and expanded capabilities within Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2, the Veeam Availability Platform brings comprehensive DR, operational recovery and platform migrations to any organization that is leveraging Veeam’s proven backup and replication capabilities.
“Our new version of Veeam Availability Orchestrator eliminates the challenges of manual processes by introducing reliable orchestrated recovery of production VMs, whether they’re protected by backups or replicas,” said Danny Allan, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. “This also includes the ability to quickly and efficiently leverage protection data to prove recoverability and compliance, whether standards are imposed internally or by governing regulations like HIPAA, SOX, GDPR and more.”
Other new features delivered in the release of Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 include the ability to:
- More easily prove — and proactively remediate where necessary — service level agreement (SLA) attainment for internal and external compliance regulations and audits with enhanced reporting and compliance capabilities.
- Automatically leverage both backup and replica protection data for use cases beyond recovery verification, such as DevOps, patch and upgrade testing, analytics and more.
- Empower business units, application owners and operations teams with their own secure access to orchestration planning and testing resources through advanced delegation and role-based access control (RBAC).
