Seamless Integration With Public Cloud Platforms
As more businesses shift their workloads to public cloud environments, it’s imperative that managed service providers (MSPs) have tools that can adapt and extend their data protection reach these platforms. Since its inception back in 2016 as Veeam Backup Portal, Veeam Service Provider Console has continued to evolve with the needs of our cloud and service provider partners.
Veeam continues to focus on developing and integrating cloud and managed service operation capabilities so service providers can continue to be aware of and control workloads no matter where they are in the world.
On-premises and infrastructure backup service offerings are essential in creating recurring service revenue. It is also instrumental in being able to have complete awareness of all systems and services no matter what system they reside on. Beyond that, cloud and MSPs need to be able to control access and visibility to your workloads as well as give you the ability to report on them and bill their customers and resellers for their services.
