So now, we have the official date for Veeam v11 release.
I'd love to know what are your expectations about this version.
Is there some feature that someone would like to highlight?
Any concern about that? Just let me know!

For me, the continuous data protection is the big ticket item that I’m most excited about, with Veeam for Mac as a close second. But I’d also like to highlight the change to Windows permissions in v11, Gostev discussed here the intent to remove admin privileges as a requirement for using the fat Veeam B&R client. A few years ago a review of the requirements of malware to successfully execute was investigated and approximately 90% of all malware required admin rights to deploy, so this is a huge leap forward in security.
I know immutability will get a lot of love here but my one caution I’d still like to echo is that immutability of an on-prem device managed by the same IT that manage the rest of the infrastructure doesn’t prevent insider threats, as it’s an OS level protection it doesn’t stop someone physically removing/damaging disks to break a RAID array, nor stopping someone booting other media to damage/destroy the “immutable” data and as a result it’s still no substitute for cloud connect or S3 service providers with immutability for S3 or insider threat protection for cloud connect.
