This feature allows you to backup the Physical Linux server to be backed up using the same backup software. If you have a mixed environments with Windows and Linux servers, this is the backup for you as it recently introduced the Windows Server backups.
The key note functionality is, Linux server backup can run in an application aware mode, where you can maintain the application consistency through out your backup operation.

Also, it reduces the backup footprints with the higher level of change block tracking.

The workstation backups are also important in a mission critical environment, it allows you to have a Windows 10 based workstations in a VHDX or VMDK formats to over come from a disaster and compliance purposes.

Basically, it comes with two options, either screenshot verification or boot verification. I have demonstrated the functionality with the beta releases and, it is obvious that the latest update comes more stability and functionality of the feature.
