- SafeHaven Version: 5.0.0
- Release Date: December 29, 2017
New Features and Enhancements
New Use Case: Use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Disaster Recovery Site
One of the major feature's of this release is the capability to protect production servers on multiple hypervisors and failover to AWS. Examples of validated hypervisors are:
- VMware: including VMware based cloud platforms such as Lumen Cloud, Lumen Private Cloud on VMware Cloud Foundation (vCloud Director), etc.
- Hyper-V Generation 1
- Physical servers: all the available baremetal servers provided by CLC have been validated
NOTE: Please refer to SafeHaven-5.1-Use-Case-and-Support-Matrix for more information on all the use cases and support matrix.
Microsoft Virtual Shadow Copy (VSS) Enabled Checkpoints
Another major feature is the introduction of Microsoft Virtual Shadow Copy (VSS) enabled checkpoint for single Windows server protection groups.
NOTE:This feature is available for both recovery into AWS as well as Lumen Cloud (CLC).
Built-in network isolation capability via GUI
Introduced built-in network isolation capability via GUI for recovery servers running on the same subnet as the recovery SRN.
NOTE:This feature is ONLY available for Windows Production VMs when the recovery site is Lumen Cloud (CLC).
This is the first major release in the SafeHaven-5 product line and there is no upgrade path from any previous SafeHaven versions. Even the appliances (CMS/SRN) used in previous versions cannot be reused in SafeHaven-5 since it uses Ubuntu-16.04 as the base OS for the first time (in comparision, SafeHaven-4 uses Ubuntu-14.04 as the base OS).
NOTE: Upgrade from SafeHaven-4 to SafeHaven-5 will be a fresh new installation.
