E’ Veeam 8 Patch2 is out! It contains several improvements (i.e.. for integrating Veeam Endpoints Free) and some interesting news (the most important is the support for vsphere6!). A note that I think it's interesting concerns the free version:
- Support in Free Edition. Start-VBRZip cmdlet is now enabled in Veeam Backup™ Free Edition, allowing users to schedule periodic VeeamZIP™ backups using external task schedulers, such as Windows Task Scheduler. This should make Veeam Backup Free Edition a viable alternative to ghettoVCB and other similar script-based free backup solutions.
You can then schedule ZIP jobs! So it is possible to schedule and backup even with the free version in a reliable way (Obviously with some limits)!
Go download it:
