With the release of Veeam Availability Console v3 we have taken huge strides in delivering to VCSP partners a console that acts as the central place to manage all aspects of their backup offerings. Not only does it build on the previous releases, but also looks to place VAC as a critical component of any Veeam-powered service provider offering.

Harness the power of cloud storage for long-term retention with Veeam Cloud Tier

Data growth continues to accelerate at almost exponential speed and with that comes pain points of organizations trying to manage that growth. More data means more robust applications to handle larger data sets, which also means more infrastructure to handle applications and the data itself. While the cost and management of on-premises storage has come down as hardware and disk technologies improve, organizations still face significant overhead when maintaining their own hardware infrastructure.

Why our software-driven, hardware agnostic approach makes sense for backups

Having been hands-on in service provider land for the entirety of my career prior to joining Veeam, I understand the pain points that come with offering backup and recovery services. I’ve spent countless hours working on getting the best combination of hardware and software for those services. I also know firsthand the challenges that storage platforms pose for architecture, engineering and operations teams who design, implement and manage these platforms.

Bringing Clarity to Veeam’s vSphere client plug-in

With the release of vSphere 6.5, VMware introduced a supported version of the HTML5 vSphere Client that was bundled as part of the vCenter Server Appliance. Built upon VMware’s Clarity UI Framework, the move to the new HTML5 client had begun. The 6.5 release had partial functionality compared to the Flash-based Web Client, however, with the release of vSphere 6.7 in April, the HTML5 vSphere Client was brought up to feature parity and is now the preferred way to configure and manage vSphere environments.

Simplifying cloud to cloud connectivity with Veeam PN

In this blog post, I’ll be covering a very real-world solution with Veeam PN where it will be used to easily connect geographically disparate cloud hosting zones, enabling you to achieve High Availability for applications and provide cross cloud application and services access. This is probably the most exciting of the three use cases I will cover in this blog series on Veeam PN, and with multi-cloud adoption in full swing, this is a very timely and useful capability.

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.

Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure featuring Veeam PN now available!

Networking has always been one of the most complex parts of any IT solution, and whether you are connecting into a remote site, connecting branch offices together or extending on-premises networks to the cloud, there is traditionally a high level of complexity and cost that's involved in establishing a reliable networking solution. When it comes to networking during a disaster, the level of complexity and margin for error is magnified. In relative terms, it has become easy to back up, replicate and then recover workloads, but getting access to those recovered systems remains a cumbersome process.

Plugging into vSphere 6.5 enhancements to increase Availability

It's been nearly a year since VMware released vSphere 6.5 which marked the 12th major release of VMware's hypervisor and hypervisor management product suite. And while VMware has been focusing on more recent products like vSAN and NSX, it shouldn't be forgotten that vSphere still remains at the core of the virtualization platform on top of which all other products are consumed. Veeam has a strong history of working with and supporting vSphere features, and the 6.5 release is no different.
