VeeamON 2017 - Availability Suite v10 announced featuring backup of NASs and built-in Management for new Veeam Agent for Windows v2, unifying VM & PC backups

If you've read TinkerTry for a while, you'll know I've enjoyed relying on Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, right through version 1.5, to protect multiple physical PCs in my family. Several times a year, I'll do a full restore of important PCs to a VM, to be absolutely sure my backups are good. Occasionally, I'll go grab a single file out of a backup too.

Recently renamed, Veeam Agent for Windows v2 continues to offer a free version, but should add quite a bit of value add for folks that wish to manage physical and virtual machines centrally, including initial installation, and day 2 operations checking in on daily backups.


As a Veeam Vanguard, I had the opportunity to hang out with the many of the developers and team leaders who help create these products, right at VeeamON 2017 in New Orleans. I had some delightful discussions surrounding PC backup with many Veeam developers, which was really quite fun. Not just the usual hello for 30 seconds in a hallway, but enthusiastic and extended conversations with Veeam folks like Dima P., who I've "known" for years in the forums. One of the many advantages of smaller conferences, with about 2,500 in attendance. See also my recently published Open feedback for popular and free Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0 (RTM Pilot), and the photo gallery that includes Anton Gostev's tips at The VeeamON 2017 Experience.

I certainly look forward to kicking the tires on v10, and will let you know how it goes. But don't wait for me, for the Agent, you can get a free license of the workstation version now!

Veeam Vanguard Program., LLC is not a Veeam Pro Partner, but I am a Veeam Vanguard Program member who received travel assistance getting to VeeamOn 2017. Veeam has been an advertiser on many virtualization sites for years now, and Veeam is currently running a BuySellAds-purchased advertisement along the top of TinkerTry as well. All TinkerTry advertisement goes through third party BuySellAds. None of my articles are sponsored posts, and there are currently no affiliate links for Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, or any of their other products. There are no commissions for any Veeam products folks buy after reading one of my articles.

TinkerTry takes extreme care to protect visitors by using only one ad network, BuySellAds, which has never had a security issue to date, and is very commonly used in the virtualization blogger community. Their CEO seems to get what's going on with ad blockers, evident in his recent post. I regularly receive lucrative offers from various companies looking to have me inject JavaScript trackers into TinkerTry, which I of course turn down.

I reserve and exercise the right to freely write about topics that I choose, whenever I choose to, an essential part of what makes blogging about home virtualization labs, storage, and backup so much fun for me. I tend to feature articles about stuff I actually use.
