Veeam and NetApp

Unprecedented availability for modern data centers

Veeam® and NetApp offer the right solution to deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™. Veeam’s integration with NetApp helps orchestrate Data ONTAP to create application-consistent backups and recovery from NetApp storage snapshots.

With Veeam, NetApp FAS and FlexArray V-Series customers can create image-based backups as often as needed ― even during business hours ― with little to no impact on production environments to deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO), or RTPO™ of 15 minutes for ALL applications and data, and for all applications in vSphere and Hyper-V environments.


Veeam helps reduce risk by providing much quicker backup than our legacy tool, Our backup window decreased by 63% with Veeam—from 24 hours to 9 hours. Faster backup lets us back up more frequently, allowing us to add 30% more backups for more recovery points. Read more
