After what seems a long time waiting since the original Veeam EndPoint was released, back during VeeamON 2014 – we finally see two paid for versions hit the streets. For those of you who don’t know, the Veeam EndPoint Free version provides a simple solution for backing up physical Windows-based desktops and laptops. Released with no central management, it was still a very usable product for specific use cases.
No pricing has been announced for these Agents, but their expected capabilities have been described in the matrix below. Please note, Veeam B&R v9.5 or higher will be required in order to support these services.
- The Free version will always be available, and will always be Free.
- Workstation – Support for Cloud Connect integration, local backup cache support ‘mobile workers’
- Server – As Workstation plus Guest Files indexing, support for ‘local applications’ such as SQL
The Linux version is currently in Beta, with a full release targeted for November 2016…
