Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 New Features
Veeam are Beta testing the upcoming Update 3 for Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5.
I have been looking thru different medias like Forum, "Word for Gostev", and other, for information about the update. And I have compile a list of the new features, that it looks like will be a part of the update.
I have no release date for the update, but it will properly be in Q4 2017, properly end November.
Management for Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows
With the release of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3, there will also come a new version of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, that can be managed from the Veeam Backup & Replication Managment Console.
Including software distribution of the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows.
This new version will also support Microsoft Cluster with shared disk support.
Managment for Veeam Agent for Linux
I have not found any information about this, other then a statment in Veeam Forum from Gostev "Centralized management for physical backup is in fact a part of Update 3".
Support for New Microsoft Windows/SQL Versions
Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and Windows Server 2016 1607 and SQL Server 2017 will be supported.
Note: that Veeam has decided to temporarily disable fast cloning functionality (ReFS) when using repository on Windows Server 2016 1607 in Update 3.

VMware vCloud 9.0 will be supported.
There will be support for storage integration with IBM Storwize and SVC, also including Lenovo branded Storwize.
