Veeam Backup & Replication Combines with NetApp Snapshot to Create Advanced Data Protection Solution to Enable the Always-On Business™
BAAR, Switzerland --(Business Wire)--
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
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
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, thesnapshots 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:
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.
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.
