Cost-effective long-term data retention

Reduce overall IT and storage costs with Veeam’s native object storage integration

Veeam Cloud Tier, included in NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, is the built-in automatic tiering feature of Scale-out Backup Repository™ that offloads older backup files to more affordable storage, such as cloud or on-premises object storage. You can:

  • Leverage the lower cost, simplicity and elasticity of object storage including Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, IBM Cloud Object Storage, S3-compatible service providers or on-premises storage offerings.
  • Store data in the cloud without any double charges unlike with other backup providers who impose a “cloud tax” on top of the cloud provider’s storage cost.
  • Avoid vendor lock-in associated with secondary storage appliances.
