On Feb. 14, Veeam and their Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners launched an unprecedented offer in the history of the company. This offer gave each of Veeam’s eligible US and Canada customers an opportunity to put $1,000 towards extending Availability to the cloud or expanding their existing usage of cloud backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). The good news for US and Canada customers who have not yet registered for this offer — the deadline to register has now been extended to June 30 by popular demand!

In addition to this extension, Veeam has now expanded this FREE cloud services offer to additional global regions! This offer is now available in: EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands and Latin America. We encourage customers to register as soon as they can since they only have until Sept. 30 to utilize their FREE services. Registering is an easy three-step process:

  1. Register to receive your unique activation code
  2. Identify a trusted VCSP partner together with your reseller
  3. After some quick configurations, you’ll be sending your data to the cloud.

The response to this offer from the Veeam customer base has been extremely positive, and many customers who had been thinking of cloud-powered data protection only needed an extra reason to give it a try — and this offer was just that reason. There are currently 60,000 Veeam customers eligible for this offer in North America, and many of them have already taken advantage of the opportunity to extend Availability to the cloud. Veeam anticipates that by extending and expanding this offer to more regions, even more customers will be able to discover this offer and make cloud backup or DRaaS a part of their arsenal for data protection.

Why Veeam Cloud Connect?

While this FREE cloud services offer has been a great starting point for many organizations wanting to protect data in the cloud, many more might be asking themselves why they should try Veeam’s cloud solutions. As a leader in the virtualization market, Veeam has always strived to make seemingly complex technology feats possible through simplicity. This theme of simplicity is also echoed in their approach to cloud. Veeam Cloud Connect is one of the easiest ways in the market for a business to activate cloud backup and DRaaS, all without the cost and complexity of building or managing an off-site infrastructure.

Veeam Cloud Connect provides the ability to easily select a trusted VCSP partner directly from the backup and replication console and configure off-site backup repositories to which virtual machine backups or replicas can be sent across a secure internet connection. The great thing about Veeam Cloud Connect is that Veeam customers already have it — it’s built into Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication! In order to activate it, customers will only need to acquire a subscription to the appropriate computer and / or storage resources from a service provider of their choice. What better time to turn on Veeam Cloud Connect than now?!

The Veeam Cloud Connect technology has some clear advantages over similar cloud solutions in the market:

  • WAN acceleration
  • No VPN management necessary
  • Multiple granular retention policies
  • Cloud backup and replication in one product
  • Hardware agnostic — no dedicated staging server or physical gateway server necessary
  • Data locality — utilize a service provider in your country, state or even city
