"We are not changing the way we do backups one bit," said Hazelman. "But we are now giving you the capability to verify after you've done a backup, that yes, the backup is good. And when it comes time to recover that virtual machine, it will start up, it won't have errors, and the applications will be responsive. If it doesn't work, you can rerun the backup to get a snapshot at a different point in time."
Existing Veeam backup users will be happy to know that this functionality will also be backward compatible with version 4.0 backup files being created today. Veeam Backup & Replication version 5.0 with SureBackup technology is expected to be released at the beginning of Q3.
