Veeam DataLabs™ Provides Isolated Instances of Any Production Environment for DevTest, DevOps and DevSecOps to Accelerate Innovation and Reduce Risk

VeeamON -- Veeam® Software, the leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise™, today unveiled a new, key component of Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform - Veeam DataLabs™. A form of copy data management, Veeam DataLabs allows organizations to easily create new instances of their production environments on-demand. This capability enables use cases beyond typical data protection scenarios, such as DevTest, DevOps, and DevSecOps, and including security and forensics testing, and on-demand sandboxes for IT operations – delivering value to the business in the form of accelerating innovation, improving operational efficiencies, reducing risk and optimizing resources.

Veeam DataLabs takes the functionality of Veeam’s Virtual Labs—enabling production-like instances of virtual environments on-demand—and expands on it with additional use cases and business value. These isolated “sandboxes” leverage existing data to accelerate innovation and to reduce risk. Veeam DataLabs takes the core components of backup and replication from being a reactive insurance policy to a proactive value-added service for the enterprise. Efficiencies are gained by capturing data once by way of the data protection process, and then repurposing that data on demand for new use cases, potentially by new users, to unlock the potential value of that data.

“Managing data is the Achilles heel of IT when it comes to delivering what end customers demand,” says Danny Allan Vice President, Product Strategy at Veeam. “However, in delivering on these demands, enterprises are under pressure to rapidly accelerate innovation while ensuring zero impact on the user’s experience. These rarely go hand-in-hand. With Veeam DataLabs, you can mitigate the risks associated with application deployment and configuration changes by testing them in a secure and trusted, production-like environment. Customers can accelerate innovation and time-to-market by leveraging an isolated, virtual sandbox for rapid application development and testing.”

Veeam DataLabs enables a self-service method for developers to dynamically spin up instances of the production environment as they design new features. This provides a way to accelerate the pace of digital service delivery and ensures that teams are developing and testing with the most recent copies of data. Veeam DataLabs also provides sandbox environments for IT Operations to test new patches and updates before they are rolled out across the company. The Security and Forensics team may use copies of the data to test for security vulnerabilities without disrupting the production systems, or for performing forensics on an event that was picked up through their security incident and event management platform. Finally, Compliance and Analysis groups can examine and classify data for capacity planning purposes, and to help comply with regulations such as GDPR. Veeam DataLabs enables all of these scenarios without disrupting production systems or requiring more infrastructure.

“Veeam DataLabs with On-Demand Sandbox capabilities allows us to rapidly re-create our production environment in a totally isolated instance so that we can perform non-disruptive DR testing and prove that we can meet application availability SLAs,” said Jeff Martinson, Director of Information Technology at Ameritas. “With these features, we are much more confident in our ability to exceed audit requirements through systemic demonstration of success.”

In addition, Veeam DataLabs leverages the Universal Storage APIs to integrate with Veeam’s storage partners. The same snapshot integrations enabled through these APIs, which also accelerate data protection capabilities, can be leveraged with storage partners like Cisco, HPE, IBM, NetApp, Pure Storage and others to provide an even more efficient way to deliver this added value.

“Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform is the only way to enable faster reaction times to any business need, reach multifold improvements in efficiencies and deliver the agility to meet evolving customer demands; Veeam DataLabs is a perfect example of how we are expanding our data management capabilities, going beyond Availability and innovating to meet the needs of the Hyper-Available Enterprise,” added Allan.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
