Absolutely! Workloads running in the public cloud even natively still require the same level of data protection that you would extend to any other critical resource. Traditionally, public clouds provide availability over recovery, ensuring that your data is always available, which makes it hard when you have to meet a recovery point objective (RPO) that is more than a couple of weeks old. Unfortunately, many companies do not realize this until it’s time to recover some “barely old” data that is unable to be retrieved. Even with the cloud, you must keep in mind that what is lost is hard, and sometimes impossible, to regain — and ultimately, you are responsible for your data.
Companies that specialize in data protection and recovery, like Veeam®, make things easy with key capabilities to quickly migrate to the cloud and begin protecting your workloads and data natively in AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
As more and more businesses are focused on switching from a capex model to more of an opex model, they are making the shift from offline, physical tape to cold storage for long-term archival of data — primarily for compliance or worst-case scenario DR reasons. A major factor in this market dynamic is that with tape and other physical media, there is additional risk and cost associated with the usage, handling and storage of the media.
Considering that most of this archived data is intended as “write once, read never,” it is best kept on cheap storage. Many companies are now turning to new “cold” cloud storage solutions, as cold storage is typically pennies per gigabyte.
Veeam Backup & Replication™ helps to not only embrace this at every step of the journey, but to unblock and enable your journey to shifting to cold cloud storage for long-term archival with the automation to manage your backup data’s life cycle from creation to deletion.

Backup is a function every IT department must execute. But without critical and business-specific demands from the line of business, many IT departments look to offload some data protection duties to a service provider, including:
To deliver these “as a Service” offerings while meeting compliance and data sovereignty needs, Veeam partners with a network of cloud and managed service providers.
