BDRSuite has leveled up with the release of version 7.0.0, introducing a host of new features to enhance your backup and recovery experience. From seamless integration with KVM Hypervisor to robust support for cloud platforms like Azure and AWS, this update brings versatility and efficiency to data protection.
Just wanted to drop a quick note about Microsoft’s latest move—they’re wrapping up support for Hyper-V Server 2019. Mainstream support waves goodbye on January 9, 2024, while extended support takes a bow on January 9, 2029. This version is officially the end of the line, and Microsoft is nudging everyone toward Azure Stack HCI.
Now, I know transitions can be a bit tricky. Many companies are scouting for alternatives, and one that’s catching some eyes is KVM. It seems like a pretty solid choice, and guess what? BDRsuite has been on my radar, and I’m really digging what I see. The cool part? Rest assured, in the event of a transition to an alternative platform, BDRsuite stands as a steadfast companion. Its compatibility extends seamlessly to various hypervisors, ensuring a smooth integration with your chosen infrastructure.
BDRSuite’s versatile support for different hypervisor platforms and cloud environments makes it a reliable data protection solution during infrastructure transitions. Its latest release enhances this multi-platform compatibility even further.
