The Shift Towards As-a-Service

A hands-on approach to data protection is something many companies still look for, and there will likely always be a strong case for fully self-managed backups. However, there has also been a notable shift in the growing preference for as-a-Service models. In fact, in our own Veeam Data Protection Trends Report for 2024, 88% of enterprises were either very likely or almost certain to use a Backup as-a-Service (BaaS) or Disaster Recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS) for at least some of their production servers. Veeam is not only keeping pace with customer demand through Veeam Data Cloud but is providing customers with more deployment and management options than ever before.

Veeam Data Cloud Overview

Microsoft 365 and Azure support many organizations’ most valuable data, and most organizations know they have a gap in their strategies — but they don’t always have the skills on staff to make necessary changes. This is where Veeam Data Cloud takes transformation from aspiration to action.

Veeam Data Cloud delivers confidence without complexity. Its cloud-native design provides the best SaaS-based protection for your Microsoft 365 and Azure data, and it’s ready out–of–the-box with policy-driven simplicity. It’s also based on a secure, zero-trust architecture that’s continuously versioned and maintained for you, keeping backups safe, secure, and always ready for fast recovery. Lastly, it’s an all-in-one service that includes backup software, infrastructure, and storage, keeping costs low and predictable to stay on budget.

Customer Freedom and Choice

At Veeam, we believe that you should be able to work with and trust a single backup vendor, regardless of how your backup strategy exists today or how it might change in the future. Unfortunately, most backup vendors today have an “our way is the best way” approach to deployment and management, not allowing customers to tailor to their own specific business needs.

Veeam Data Cloud exemplifies customer freedom by becoming our twin offering to Veeam Data Platform. It now provides more options for customers with a menu of backup service products alongside our variety of self-managed products. We anticipate supporting many more applications through Veeam Data Cloud in the future. So, whether you want to leverage a backup service, utilize backup software, or offload backups via managed services — Veeam has you covered!
