There have been many changes to the data center over the last 10 years, with one of the biggest being the introduction of virtualization. Consolidating hundreds of x86 servers, and running them on a small cluster, has become routine within data centers across the world. With these production environment changes, our backup environments have needed to transform as well. Traditional agent-based backup solutions don’t make sense within a highly virtualized modern data center, and neither do the traditional backup processes of having a nightly window and 24 hours’ worth of data loss as a result of an outage. Organizations no longer operate on the typical nine-to-five workday, and neither should the backup solutions they deploy. These factors are pushing businesses to migrate from backup and recovery to a true modernized availability solution.

This edition of VeeamUP is devoted to the increasingly popular topic of cloud-based Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). To reduce unplanned downtime to an absolute minimum and keep businesses operating smoothly, a secondary site for disaster recovery (DR) is vital. But, setting up and maintaining a separate DR site is expensive and time-consuming, which is why DRaaS presents such a compelling alternative.
Businesses now need to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every single day of the year. Services must be kept online or customers will be lost. In today’s global marketplace, it is critical for systems to always be available so companies can remain competitive and keep their users satisfied. High data-center availability can be achieved in several ways, but the most common and easiest is through the combination of server virtualization and failover clustering.

Despite the fact that all of the leading data-protection vendors now consider Veeam to be a primary competitor (and threat), the company continues to rack up impressive growth stats.
Based on our revenue estimates, Veeam appears to be on track to meet its goal of $1bn in revenue in 2018. However, although it's the top gun in VMware data protection, meeting that revenue goal will depend in large part on whether Veeam can maintain momentum in the Hyper-V backup/recovery market, as well as its ability to gain momentum in cloud-based data protection.

The VMware vSphere architecture offers many advantages for server backup and recovery. It changes the traditional techniques used to back up servers by leveraging virtualization features to streamline backup and recovery and makes it more efficient. It also provides more flexibility and options for performing backups, restoring VMs and implementing disaster recovery (DR).
In this white paper we will offer 10 best practices for assisting with implementing backup and recovery in a vSphere environment, including the proper methods, techniques and configuration so you can take your backups to the next level.
You’ll also find out how you can leverage the cloud as part of your data protection strategy and how you can keep critical VMs and data safe.
