Hands On With Veeam v11 CDP

This post was originally published on this site

Anyone who is a Veeam user is likely well aware of Veeam’s “upcoming” CDP (Continuous Data Protection); it has been somewhat notorious as it was announced way back at VeeamON 2017 in New Orleans. Over the course of time, the release date has slipped a few times, but largely for good reason (e.g. stability or performance issues were deemed unsatisfactory by Veeam’s internal QA process). I most recently wrote about it again last year, when we got another preview of the tech at the Veeam Vanguard Summit.

Alas, with 2020 unfolding how it has, some welcome news is here: CDP will be a part of Veeam v11! Since I’ve been literally talking about this feature for years, I’m pretty excited to share what I’ve seen with it.


Please note that the experience below as well as the screenshots are based off of the version 11 beta 2 code. This will be visible in some spots as terms such as [TBD] may be visible. Additionally, there is the chance that some functionality may still change before GA.

I’ve previously covered the tech behind CDP, which leverages VMware’s VAIO (vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering), so I won’t get into
