Click to Tweet: Veeam Backup & Replication Combines with NetApp Snapshot to make the always-on business a reality
Veeam® Software, innovative provider of Data Protection for the Modern Data Center™, today announced it is collaborating with NetApp® to create a new data protection solution for the modern data center to Enable the Always-on Business™. Through this partnership, Veeam will integrate its Backup & Replication solution with NetApp Snapshot™, SnapMirror® and SnapVault®.
Today, businesses require access to applications 24/7, from any place and any device, with no patience for outages or data loss. The result is the expectation and demand of an always-on, always-available business, challenging IT in an unprecedented way to provide non-stop services. The new Veeam and NetApp partnership marks yet another milestone in Veeam’s ongoing mission to enable the always-on business by providing data protection to the modern data center.
Veeam first took server virtualization, a key technology of the modern data center, beyond its initial application of server consolidation and turned it into a robust, transformative platform for data protection. Beginning with VMware and later with Hyper-V, Veeam provided data protection that “just works” – introducing capabilities such as Instant VM Recovery™, SureBackup™ automatic backup testing and recovery verification, and an On-Demand Sandbox™ that helps mitigating risks by providing a production-like environment for testing applications and updates before actual deployment into the data center.
Now, Veeam is transforming a second key enabling technology of the modern data center – the storage array with hardware based snapshot capabilities – to make the always-on business a reality. Storage snapshots allow backups to take place during business hours without affecting production virtual machines (VMs), permitting a very low recovery point objective (RPO). In addition, the snapshots themselves are small, taking up relatively little space. But storage snapshots alone are not sufficient to provide the level of data protection that the modern data center requires.
This integration will bring together the low RPO enabled by NetApp Snapshot, which lets enterprise IT back up the production environment to other storage every 15 minutes with no impact on performance, and the low recovery time objective (RTO) capability enabled by Veeam Backup & Replication, whose Explorer for Storage Snapshots provides quick and convenient item-level recovery from NetApp Snapshots, SnapMirror and SnapVault. Backups directly from storage snapshots can be completed 20 times faster than they can with competing solutions, and the integration provides an efficient means to meet the 3-2-1 best practice of data protection by instantly storing one of the backup copies in SnapVault.
When NetApp is combined with Veeam, the integrated solution provides an unprecedented level of data protection, matching the requirements of the always-on business. The combination of these two leading technologies includes two key capabilities:
- Backup from Storage Snapshots: Executes backup much faster with no disruption to the production environment, resulting in dramatically improved RPOs. Available in the Enterprise Plus edition of Veeam Backup & Replication.
- Explorer for Storage Snapshots: Enables recovery ranging from entire VMs to individual files and application items directly from snapshots in production storage. Available in all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication, including the Free Edition.
Data protection in the modern data center is beginning to depend on further integration of the key technology of the modern data center: virtualization. This solution provides customers with a deeper level of protection and availability.
“In an effort to control data protection costs, and to get more value out of their backup data, customers are increasingly looking at snapshots to increase their storage efficiency. NetApp is pleased that Veeam is working with us to bring greater value to our joint customers,” said AJ Mahajan, Senior Director, NetApp Product Management.
“Together, the collaboration creates an important milestone and a disruptive advance in modern data protection,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “Veeam was founded to leverage the core attributes of virtualization and yet again, we’re now transforming a key enabling technology for the modern data center, bringing additional value and capabilities to ensure that the most-critical services of our 100,000 customers remain always on and always available.”
The integration with NetApp Snapshot, SnapMirror and SnapVault will be included in Veeam Backup & Replication v8, which will be generally available in the second half of this year.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducte...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
