Veeam Backup for Salesforce v2 is out. Here's a quick look at the key new features and enhancements

Posted by Andrew Ogilvie in Extraordinary News

Salesforce Security and Compliance
Single sign-on (SSO) authentication for console users allows product administrators to provide users with easy access to the console as well as grant them roles appropriate for their scope of operations. Administrators also have the option to limit single sign-on to a specific Salesforce domain. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is supported if the option is enabled for an organisation. To further address compliance needs there is now an audit policy with configurable retention that will record all operator logins and operations.

Sandbox Seeding
Sandbox seeding allows the loading of data or replicating production data to a sandbox for troubleshooting or development purposes. A new restore wizard allows you to specify the source and the target Salesforce Org, with the option to seed data to a new sandbox in only a few clicks.

Additional Salesforce Business Apps
The new release now protects data and metadata for native applications like Salesforce Field Service, Person Account, CPQ, Education Cloud Architecture (EDA) or any unlocked packages, as well as user-generated data and custom metadata from managed packages on the Salesforce platform.

Enhanced Backup Performance
The backup engine has been revamped to measurably improve backup performance and as a result users should enjoy reduced API consumption overall. These improvements make Veeam for Salesforce even more capable of backup for all organisations and especially those with billions of records. File backups and restores have been extended to additional content types such as FeedAttachment, ContentNote, and ServiceReport, and backup schedules now include time zones.

Enhanced Restores
It is now possible to set alternate keys for objects during restores, to avoid running into duplication errors. Large file restores are available for files up to 2GB, and data filter validations in restore wizards have been improved when you need to specify several picklist values or have specific Salesforce IDs to filter.
