Experience Availability – Happy World Availability Day!

It is a well-known and accepted fact that data rules our modern lives – we feed on it (email, calendar, maps, newsfeeds), we travel with it (Uber, train schedules, any airline) and we sleep with it (ALL fitness trackers available in the market monitor sleep patterns).

Therefore, it comes as no surprise when we at Veeam evangelize the importance of data Availability 24.7.365 because to put it quite simply, it’s our survival. Not only as individuals but as part of an organization, part of the economy, part of our “global village.” The ramifications of not meeting these expectations run deeper than just merely an inconvenience, but can cause the kind of issues that keep everyone from the IT Pro to ...

Predictions: 2017 will be the year of the data center

Looking back, it’s clear that 2016 highlighted the importance of Availability. As we start a new year, increasing customer and partner demands have caused Availability to continue to gain momentum. Over the last 12 months, massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks brought many services to their knees, interrupting business operations and harming reputations for some of the world’s biggest brands. Moving into 2017, data centers will take center stage and dominate IT, as businesses look to harness information and provide tailored services for customers and partners. Availability will soon become a requirement, and not just “nice to have” for businesses looking to succeed and meet customer demands. Customers will no longer tolerate downtime in the coming year. Bottom line? ... Read more

Veeam celebrates turning a decade old — A look back at the last ten years and forward to the next ten

We recently turned ten, and while some of our teams across the globe celebrated with cupcakes and balloons, others celebrated our company’s birthday during the grand opening of their new, official offices. In light of all these celebrations, I took some time to ponder my history at Veeam since I joined in December 2007 as employee number 8, outside of Russia.

Veeam has been fortunate to not only survive, but thrive, during one of the most turbulent and interesting periods in IT history. New technologies have emerged that have changed the way businesses think about IT, while ubiquitous connectivity has driven fundamental shifts in how we live and work. The company was founded when cloud was in its infancy and many ... Read more

The 3-2-1-0 Rule to High Availability

Reliable backup is one of the foundations of availability.  When things go wrong, data can be lost.  The more data that is lost, the greater the potential business impact. Part of getting back up and running quickly is being able to restore operations to where they were before the problem started.  Sometimes, however, problems are not limited to a single occurrence.  Compounding of problems can put your backups at risk as well.

Introducing Backup I/O Control in Veeam Backup & Replication

When we released Veeam Backup & Replication version 6, one of the big “what’s new” items was our enterprise scalability through our distributed architecture and automatic intelligent load balancing. The move to the proxy/repository architecture was a big one for us because previously all backup activities ran through a single backup server. There were several reasons for moving to this architecture…

Distribute backup processing across multiple proxy servers to make it easier for you to scale your B&R deploymentAchieve higher availability and redundancy: if a proxy goes down, another one can still complete the task – no more single point of failureReduce impact from backups on production infrastructure through intelligent load balancingDramatically simplify job scheduling (by automatically controlling the desired tasks ...

Do I need to be worried about the SSL Heartbleed vulnerability?

I am sure that many of you by now heard or read about the Heartbleed bug that has been in the IT news for a few days now. The Heartbleed bug is a serious vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This is a very popular used network software that many companies and services on the internet use for encrypting their services. Websites & online services such as Facebook, Tumblr, Google, Yahoo, Gmail, Yahoo mail,  Amazon web services, GoDaddy and many more use the affected OpenSSL version and therefore are sensitive for this bug.

Luckily it seems that the bug was discovered by security teams before malicious hackers were able to exploit this but the consensus remains that you ... Read more
