Veeam and Microsoft Extend Storage Alliance to Deliver Unprecedented Availability for the Always-On Cloud

Today, Veeam Software, the innovative provider of solutions that delivers Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, announces new capabilities enabling any business to deliver the Digital Life experience users expect by protecting applications and data running in Hybrid Cloud leveraging backup and disaster recovery based on Microsoft Azure and Veeam “Always-On Cloud” Availability Platform.

According to Gartner: “From 2016 through 2020, the use of either DRaaS or IaaS to support the failover of production applications will grow by more than 200 percent.” Thus, the need for a simple and powerful solution for cloud backup and disaster recovery is growing exponentially, as cloud with its elasticity and pay-as-you-go model represents the best platform for on-demand disaster recovery and availability.i

Today’s news builds on a long-standing alliance between Veeam and Microsoft, and allows customers to benefit from:

  • Non-Stop Business Continuity – leveraging cloud backup and disaster recovery (DR) based on Veeam “Always-On Cloud” Availability Platform and Azure
  • Digital Transformation Agility – through easy, secure and reliable Veeam-powered cross-cloud data management and migration to leverage Azure’s agility and flexibility
  • Reduce cost by utilizing Veeam’s flexible platform and Azure consumption model

Delivering a Simple and Powerful On-Demand Disaster Recovery (DR) in Azure

When a disaster strikes, businesses of all sizes need a reliable solution for on-demand DR in the cloud. The cloud makes DR affordable for businesses of any size, but many of them still struggle to properly manage the complex DR process, including data restore and network setup and configuration for seamless user experience.

  • NEW Veeam Disaster Recovery in Microsoft Azure simplifies and automates a disaster recovery in Azure, helping businesses maintain business continuity and availability of critical workloads with all-encompassing on-demand DR in Azure. Veeam DR in Azure combines Veeam Direct Restore and NEW Veeam PN (Veeam Powered Network).
  • NEW Veeam PN for Microsoft Azure is a powerful solution designed to simplify and automate the setup of a DR site in Azure using lightweight software-defined networking (SDN). It helps maintain business continuity and availability by eliminating the complexity of VPN deployments and is designed for businesses of all sizes and service providers.

Native Support for Cloud Object Storage (Azure Blob) in NEW Veeam Availability Suite v10

Veeam announced a new Scale Out Backup Repository (SOBR) support for cloud object storage as an Archive Tier extent. This new functionality, arriving with Veeam Availability Suite v10, enables customers to archive Veeam backups to Azure Blob storage. This native support helps customers to leverage Azure to reduce long-term data archival, retention and compliance costs.

NEW Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows (previously announced)

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, previously announced and being made generally available at VeeamON 2017. This solution extends Veeam “Always-On Cloud” Availability Platform to public cloud and physical servers. This new solution offers features and capabilities designed to ensure Availability for Windows-based physical servers, workstations and endpoints, as well as Windows workloads running in Azure.

Increased Disk Size Capacity in Azure

Microsoft announced that it will enable all Azure customers to access and use disks in Azure up to 4TB in size (previously 1TB). This enhancement means Veeam customers can fully realize a more cost-effective solution using a Veeam virtual appliance to back up four times as much data in Azure Storage. This feature will be available mid-2017.

NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 with Multi-Tenancy

Today, Veeam also announces an update to its SaaS Availability solution, Veeam Backup for Office 365, which more than 11,000 organizations are already using, just four months after release. In this update, a multi-tenant architecture enables protecting larger Office 365 deployments with a single installation, while empowering Veeam Cloud and Service Providers (VCSPs) to deliver Office 365 backup services.

Further to this news, Veeam has introduced enhanced automation options via RESTful API and PowerShell SDK to minimize management overheads, improve recovery times and reduce costs. And looking ahead, the next version of Veeam Backup for Office 365 is already in development which will include much-requested support for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

Veeam’s Co-CEO and President, Peter McKay, and Azure CTO, Mark Russinovich, announced the new functionality during VeeamON 2017, the world’s Premier Hybrid Cloud Availability Event, taking place now in New Orleans, LA.
