Accelerate innovation and improve operational efficiencies
A gold mine of data, valuable to your organization, is wrapped up in your backups and replicas. Copies of your production data are sitting idle, collecting dust. Did you know you can leverage this data for use cases well beyond traditional backup, including faster application deployment, rolling out new upgrades and patches with less risk, DevOps, DevTest, and even security and compliance verification?
Adding to a longstanding ability to deliver confidence in the verification and recoverability of backups, Veeam® DataLabs™ goes beyond Availability allowing users to do much more with their data to:
Accelerate the pace of innovation and your agile delivery strategy with a more iterative approach, enabled by rapid testing and feature rollouts in virtual environments.
Developers can utilize this self-service method to spin up instances of a production environment as new features are designed, tested and rolled out. Continuously design new features simultaneously without disrupting the network or requiring more storage.
Ensure successful updates and the continuous improvement of your IT infrastructure while deploying saved resources on new features and app development.
With Veeam DataLabs you can test new patches and updates in a sandbox environment before they go Live, to minimize negative impact on production, accelerate testing, and update rollouts more efficiently.
Proactively use copy data to avoid future security issues and address security incidents without unplanned downtime.
Utilize copies of data to test for vulnerabilities or perform forensic testing on flagged events or security incidents. With Secure Restore, users can perform anti-virus scans on all backup files planned for a restore, to verify the data is virus free.
Users can utilize copy data to evaluate compliance and proactively ensure GDPR mandates. With this, you can ensure compliance while minimizing the impact on your environment and reducing workloads.
With Staged Restore, users can streamline the GDPR data (right to be forgotten) removal process with custom scripts and automation and then immediately test and migrate the data to production.
Need to change the production environment, test a patch, research a security incident, upgrade a system or deploy a new application?
With On-Demand Sandbox™, you can easily start a copy of your production environment at any time for a variety of testing, security, training or troubleshooting purposes, including the following:
On-Demand Sandbox for Storage Snapshots combines Veeam’s trusted and time-tested, On-Demand Sandbox capability with our storage snapshot integration, giving you another way to leverage your primary storage investment.
Available for VMware vSphere and the world’s leading storage providers, On-Demand Sandbox for Storage Snapshots can be used to provision a complete isolated copy of your production environment in just a few clicks by running copies of production VMs directly from storage snapshots. This allows you to test updates or troubleshoot your production environment — plus a variety of other similar use cases — at the full speed of production storage and while never impacting production.
With SureBackup®, you can improve backup-related operational efficiencies by automatically verifying the recoverability of every backup, every VM (virtual machine), every time. SureBackup automatically starts VMs in an isolated environment, performs a set of tests and sends a status report to your mailbox, so you know if your VMs are recoverable at any time.
To verify if a VM backup is recoverable, SureBackup:
All access to the VM backup is read-only and changes are discarded when the process is complete.
With Veeam DataLabs, you can also automatically test every restore point in every VM replica for recoverability. SureReplica helps improve operational efficiencies by validating data for consistency, checking replica configuration accuracy and testing it for complete reliability by running it to the required restore point in an isolated lab.
Since a VM replica is essentially an exact copy of a VM with a set of restore points, the testing process is different than testing VM backups. SureReplica:
