Back up is the first step along the journey toward data Availability and backing up data is a day to day task many of us do without knowing it. The real value in those backups is achieving efficient and fast recovery to meet the crucial demands of the business. Over the years Veeam has become synonymous with data Availability and with the integration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) storage, users gain industry-leading recovery capabilities to minimize data loss. This integration allows storage snapshots to become more purposeful through Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots, Backup from Storage Snapshots and On-Demand Sandbox for Storage Snapshots.
Monitoring data center performance is an essential part of every IT administrator’s job that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Pre-built alarms included in Veeam ONE keep IT administrators up-to-date on the operations and issues occurring in their environment in real-time.
