Introducing Enhanced Capabilities with Veeam Backup & Replication v12.1: Accelerating the Evolution of Data Protection

Looking Ahead to a Future of Data Reusability

In the ever-evolving landscape of data management, it’s critical for service providers to harness the ingenuity woven into their DNA, pushing the boundaries of innovation to enhance customer experiences. As the Veeam Data Platform broadens its horizons, covering an expansive array of workloads across diverse platforms, it empowers Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners to craft and deliver services that not only protect workloads throughout their lifecycle — from on-premises systems to IaaS, public clouds, and SaaS platforms — but also unlock the latent value within the data they safeguard.

Imagine the potential when the data processed and stored is not just a static asset but a springboard for generative AI and other advanced data services. With Veeam, VCSP partners are perfectly positioned to tap into this potential, transforming the data they manage into a dynamic resource that fuels innovation, drives business intelligence, and creates new opportunities for data enrichment and service offerings. This is the future where data reusability becomes a key differentiator. Our partners are the architects of this transformation by leveraging the power of Veeam’s latest innovations to turn data into actionable insights and competitive advantages.
