Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 to be released in a couple of weeks

Veeam is currently working on a new release of Veeam Backup & Replication. The new release (5.0.2) will mostly have bugfixes and not many additional features.

However, one interesting new feature seems to be added and it has something to do with virtual labs. Virtual labs is used for the SureBackup technology. Virtual machine backups are started in an isolated network to verify if they can be booted and if the application is running. One of the functions which can be used by using virtual labs and running virtual machines from backup is On-demand sandbox. Using on-demand sandbox virtual machines can be run from backup to test hotfixes, application updates etc.

The 5.0.2 release is expected in a couple of weeks.
