Digital transformation is the new normal

The lightning-fast pace of technological innovation is forcing digital and physical worlds to collide — and it’s also transforming the way organizations operate in every industry. This digital transformation can either make or break your business. Because, in the digital world, customers expect 24.7.365 Availability.

"CEOs expect their digital revenue to increase by more than 80% by 2020"

The secret formula for success? 24.7.365 Availability

When almost all applications are critical to business operations, every enterprise lives or dies by its Availability. But legacy backup systems simply can’t keep up with demands for a growing number of applications to be up and running 24.7.365.

"75% of organizations’ applications are considered business-critical or mission-critical"

The cost of poor Availability can be catastrophic

Veeam® Global Availability Report, gathering insight from 1,140 senior IT decision makers reveals that 84% of CIOs can’t meet today’s demands for 24.7.365 Availability. With an average of 15 unplanned downtime events each year, the Availability Gap costs businesses an average $16 million annually. And on top of the financial damage, there’s often irreparable damage to brand reputation and customer confidence.

Lessons from global brands on becoming an Always-On Enterprise

Lessons from Volvo

Accelerating Availability at 70 dealerships

  • Rapid recovery

    Rapid recovery of what you want, the way you want it

  • High availability

    Guaranteed recovery of every file, application or virtual server, every time

  • Reduced costs

    No more expensive hardware refreshes and high operational costs

Veeam was the only solution we trusted to recover within four hours. Now dealers have peace of mind knowing their backups are offsite and readily available for fast recovery. They’ve greatly minimized their risk for data loss because Simac and Veeam will get them up and running quickly.

Marc Scheir
IT Project Manager, Volvo Car BeLux


With data volumes growing out of control, backing up to tape was becoming prohibitively expensive for Volvo dealers in Belgium and Luxembourg. On top of that, slow recovery times for the core management system put a handbrake on dealerships’ ability to trade effectively.


Volvo wanted their dealerships up and running 100% of the time, allowing them to focus on what they do best—selling and servicing Volvo cars. With Veeam Backup & Replication™, dealerships can now fire on all cylinders knowing data is securely backed up offsite with lightning-fast recovery times.


The Volvo dealer management system is now available 24.7.365, streamlining their IT and reducing operational costs. By investing in the only solution Volvo trusted to recover data within four hours, the global brand has greatly minimized their risk for data loss.

Udo Müller
Supervisor, Platform Operations, Telefonica Germany


Telefonica Germany is one the country’s biggest telecommunications providers — and it plans to grow even bigger. Previously, backup and recovery processes were unreliable and slow, placing Telefonica Germany’s growth and reputation at risk. The tech giant also sought to combine two data centres into one.


Telefonica Germany implemented Veeam Availability Suite™, which helps guarantee network Availability — keeping customers connected and providing a platform for its ambitious plans for business growth.


Today, Telefonica Germany offers a 24.7.365 network, delivering the highest level of customer satisfaction.
