Scale your Strategy for Cyber Resilience with Hitachi Vantara and Veeam

How do you deal with data dispersion? As your organization’s business-critical data continually experiences compound growth, you may find that maintaining a sense of control over that data is nearly impossible, especially in the age of ransomware.

The most recent found that 76% of organizations suffered at least one ransomware attack last year. As the threat of cyberattacks increases, now is the time to identify any potential weaknesses in your data protection strategy — most importantly, before bad actors find them. As mentioned before, a pervasive data estate can certainly be a weakness, so how do you adequately scale a data protection strategy that evolves with your business?

Hitachi Vantara and Veeam Partner for Resilient Hybrid Cloud Data Protection

Last week, Veeam announced a new strategic partnership with Hitachi Vantara. Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., provides data storage, resilient infrastructure systems, intelligent data management, and AI-ready hybrid cloud storage to many of the world’s leading organizations.

Together, Hitachi Vantara and Veeam can help you scale your strategy for cyber resilience. Our joint solutions provide end-to-end data security to protect your business-critical workloads and data, no matter where they reside in your hybrid cloud.

Our priority is ensuring your business can continue and recover quickly from potential disruptions like ransomware and other cyberthreats. With features like immutable backups and storage snapshots, we work jointly to ensure faster recovery and minimal downtime, so you can continue business as usual no matter what threats may come your way.

Hitachi Vantara and Veeam Solutions

So, what exactly do Hitachi Vantara and Veeam provide? The answer is twofold:

  1. Veeam Data Platform provides data protection for Hitachi Vantara production workloads and data whether they reside as block storage in Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform, NFS/SMB file storage in Hitachi NAS Platform, or object storage in Hitachi Content Platform/Hitachi Content Platform for Cloud Scale.
  2. Additionally, organizations can leverage Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform or Hitachi Content Platform as secondary storage for their Veeam backups. Both Veeam and Hitachi provide immutable storage for complete backup immutability and ultimate data security.

With these solutions, Hitachi Vantara and Veeam can help you scale your data protection strategy, control costs, and maintain compliance, all while ensuring your data is immutable, quickly recoverable, and always available — no matter what.

Key Features and Integrations

There are several stand-out features that come to mind when thinking of what differentiates the Hitachi Vantara and Veeam solutions:

  1. Direct-to-Object Storage: Leverage Hitachi Content Platform or Hitachi Content Platform for Cloud Scale as backup storage to easily scale with your business as your data grows. Object storage provides performant and immutable storage at a cost-effective price point.
  2. Veeam Hardened Repository: Keep your data safe with immutable and malware-safe storage repositories for your backups to prevent malicious encryption or deletion.
  3. Storage Snapshot Integration: Back up and recover faster with Veeam’s deep storage snapshot orchestration capabilities with Hitachi Vantara Virtual Storage Platform (VSP). Restore anything at any time with Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots. Use Veeam Explorers for granular item recovery from enterprise applications like Oracle, SQL Server, SharePoint, and Exchange.
  4. Object Storage Backup: Back up production object storage workloads on Hitachi Content Platform or Hitachi Content Platform for Cloud Scale. As more and more production applications like medical imaging systems (PACS) use object storage for production, Veeam Data Platform can provide these applications with robust data protection and recovery capabilities.

These features, among others, help provide you with flexibility to build an end-to-end data protection solution that meets the unique needs of your business.
