Veeam Upgrade from version 6.5 to 7

As you all know the pioneer in the Virtualization backup technology, has released their latest version Veeam Backup and Replication 7. This is a major release, there are lot of new features that I will discuss in my next blog. I have just done an upgrade for my client, to be very honest, I really saw the power of Veeam simplicity and easiness. From an administrator and organizational point this matters a lot. The amazing fact is, it took below 20 minutes to upgrade with few mouse clicks !!!

The Steps are given below;

1- Download the latest version, it is in ISO format extract or burn to a CD and mount. Just run the Setup program
