Fast recovery with NetApp snapshots and Veeam

Posted by Michael Cade

Let’s face it, for an IT administrator, recovery is a big part of your world. Over the years, I’ve seen exhaustion and fatigue on the faces of IT staff struggling to recover their business applications and data after unplanned system disruptions. In the IT arena, ever-increasing demands and expectations are setting the bar higher, and fast recovery is a key to success.

Veeam’s deep integration with NetApp enables businesses to leverage storage snapshots to create application consistent backups to fast SAN/NAS based repositories. As a result, IT administrators avoid the pain, frustration and exhaustion often experienced when in “recovery mode.”

Veeam’s inflection point has arrived: YOU need to be there!

Posted by Rick Vanover

In mathematics, an inflection point is a point of a curve where a change in the direction of curvature occurs. In business, an inflection point is a time of significant change in a situation, a turning point. At Veeam, 2016 marks our inflection point. Join us on Aug. 23, when we will be making the biggest product announcement in Veeam history. This virtual event will also mark one of the first public appearances on behalf of Veeam from Peter McKay, our new President and Chief Operating Officer.

Veeam and Nimble Storage integration: First-hand configuration and recovery

Posted by Hal Yaman

Veeam is extending its storage integration offerings to the support of Nimble Storage arrays in the upcoming Veeam Availability Suite 9.5. The Beta is already available for testing, and I used this chance to get first-hand experience. In this post, I’ll share insights from my experience and review the functional use cases delivered by this Veeam-Nimble Integration.

The Veeam-Nimble integration follows the same approach as Veeam’s existing integration capabilities with other enterprise storage solutions. It’s all about leveraging the underlying storage hardware and snapshot capability. The Veeam-Nimble integration offers the benefits of minimum impact on the virtual infrastructure during the backup process, RTPO of less than 15 minutes and verified recoverability.

Encryption Trojans, ransomware and more: Get protection & availability NOW!

Posted by Marco Horstmann

Media coverage on the various versions of encryption Trojans are coming fast and furious. These threats are meant to extort money out of the infected and are otherwise known as ransomware.

Trojan malware like Locky, TeslaCrypt and CryptoLocker are the variations currently used to attack companies. The breach gateways are often security loopholes in web browsers and their plugins or inadvertently opened email attachments. Once inside the company, the ransomware can spread at breakneck speeds and begin to encrypt valuable data. The FBI recommends companies implement a solid ransomware backup and recovery strategy for effective protection against data loss caused by CryptoLocker or any other Trojan.

Backup Server placement and configuration: VMware backup best practices (Part 1)

Posted by Rick Vanover

When it comes to deciding what are can be considered “BEST” practices, a lot can be up for interpretation. One thing that we do know for sure is that when Gostev presented VT-466 VMware Backup Best Practices: 2015 Edition there was something for everyone to learn. This was without a doubt one of the most popular sessions from VeeamON 2014 and 2015, and I can’t wait to see what the 2017 edition will look like!

That being said, we’ve decided to release a few key points here in a blog series from this session from last year, to share the knowledge and ramp up for VeeamON 2017.

Veeam Management Pack data in Microsoft Operations Manager Suite (Part 3)

Posted by Mike Resseler

In the first part of this series, we looked at OMS and whether it is a replacement of OpsMgr or if the two solutions can complement each other. We created the integration between the two solutions and after that we started part two of this series and worked with streamed alert data. We created custom queries, extracted data out of custom fields and finally used PowerBI to create some nice visualizations to understand what is happening in the environment.

Today, we are going to continue on that path but now with performance data.

Get centralized, off-site backup and replication with Veeam Cloud Connect for the Enterprise

Posted by Clint Wyckoff

It’s a problem that’s continuing to plague organizations around the globe. For example, a large global organization was faced with recent outages of their end-user-facing, retail-sales application costing the company thousands of dollars. A mandate from the CIO placed the IT team in a position where they HAD to figure out how to centrally protect the applications and services at their remote office/branch offices (ROBOs), as well as their headquarters (HQ) datacenter.

It’s unfortunate, but this challenge is becoming more and more commonplace in the today’s virtualized datacenter. Senior executives are now demanding centralized, off-site backup AND replication of their many remote offices and datacenters to the HQ datacenter, or in some cases, to the public cloud.
