Cisco HyperFlex delivers complete hyperconvergence. It combines the software-defined networking and computing power of Cisco UCS with the Cisco HyperFlex HX Data Platform. And it is designed for simplicity. HyperFlex brings increased operational efficiency and adaptability to more workloads in your data center.

Veeam delivers efficient VM backup and replication to dramatically lower the RTO & RPO for ALL applications and data. Veeam offers unique native snapshot integration with the HyperFlex platform, reducing the impact on production systems, enabling more frequent snapshots and lowering RPOs. The native snapshot integration dramatically improves backup performance for HyperFlex systems. Veeam replication between HyperFlex clusters, both local and distributed, provides site-level DR. Veeam also provides backup and recovery at the VM and item-level for instant recovery. Veeam-managed backups stored on secondary storage, cloud or tape, allow organizations to meet both internal and external data protection and recovery requirements.
