Simplified remote access for home labs and offices with Veeam PN

On January 2018, Veeam publicly announced the release of Veeam PN (powered network) version 1, a lightweight SDN appliance that was released completely FREE to use. And while Veeam PN was released as part of a greater solution focused on extending network Availability for Microsoft Azure, Veeam PN can also be deployed as a standalone tool via a downloadable OVA. Veeam PN has some key standalone use cases we’ll explore in this blog series.

Accelerate recovery with NetApp snapshots and Veeam

One of the key players in snapshot technology is NetApp, which gives storage snapshots added functionality through its SnapMirror and SnapVault. When you add Veeam into the mix, you gain a comprehensive Availability strategy that meets, not only RPOs, but also Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs). Data Availability today is more critical than ever before and being able to leverage storage snapshots is a real game-changer when it comes to meeting the demands of your business. Veeam and NetApp integration provides you with the ability to create faster backups, quicker restores and improved protection. Veeam integrates with NetApp FAS and AFF, FlexArray (V-Series), Data ONTAP Select and IBM N Series (NetApp FAS OEM).

New Snapshot Integration for Pure Storage now available for Veeam Backup & Replication

Today Veeam announces Pure Storage as the next storage vendor to arrive onto this integration framework. With more and more businesses moving toward and adopting all-flash storage solutions that help those businesses to deliver more predictable performance across an ever more demanding business workload, it goes without saying that there is no requirement change for Always-On Availability. In fact, this increases the requirements around RTO and RPO SLAs.

Instant VM Recovery considerations for modern data center – Part 2

A lot of discussion and thought goes into designing backup solutions for adequate capacity, performance at an affordable cost. Normally the focus is on the backups, but we also need to think about the restores. The faster the restore, the less down time and economical loss. Instant VM Recovery is there to achieve the fastest possible restore time. This works great, but at scale, you need to worry about the performance of those virtual machines you made available so quickly and how the operations involved impact your environment. Let's continue our discussion of some key design considerations to make Instant VM Recovery shine.

Why to attend VeeamON – seen from a partner’s or customer’s point of view
