Nearly 70%* of organizations state that IT has become more complex over the last two years.
Exponential data growth combined with the need to integrate hybrid cloud technologies are two of the primary culprits for this increased complexity.
At NetApp Insight, Veeam VP of Global Alliance Architecture, Ken Ringdahl, and NetApp VP of Product and Solutions Marketing, Bharat Badrinath, discussed on theCUBE how Veeam and NetApp are helping to deliver increased IT simplicity across on-premise and multi-cloud environments to help businesses simplify data management and application Availability while easing the transition to hybrid cloud computing.
“…what makes it simple is when it is comprehensive and integrated,” said Badrinath. “When the two companies’ engineering teams work together to drive that integration, that results in simplicity.”
Indeed, the simplicity of Veeam combined with NetApp Data Fabric solutions is making IT backup and recovery teams 56% more efficient and delivering nearly a 300% ROI according to IDC.
Simplifying IT and automating the processes around application and data Availability is a critically important first step towards enabling IT organizations to spend less time on day-to-day operational management and more time helping the business innovate and compete in the digital economy.
Veeam’s integration with NetApp’s flagship ONTAP solution offerings, like All-Flash FAS, provide a foundational platform for enabling businesses to move, manage, protect and share application workloads anywhere the business demands — in the data center, in remote office locations or in the public cloud.
In the video, Badrinath also mentions Veeam’s soon-to-be-available integration with NetApp HCI/SolidFire solutions, to give organizations a single management framework for delivering Hyper-Availability and data protection for traditional and next generation data center workloads; whether they reside on ONTAP or NetApp HCI.
In short, NetApp and Veeam deliver the IT simplicity needed to help businesses safeguard and harness their data for maximum advantage across hybrid cloud computing environments.
