As diamond sponsors of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Summit, and 39 other AWS Summits globally, Veeam is serious about our commitment to working with AWS and delivering Cloud Data Management solutions for on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments to government, education, and nonprofit customers. In fact, Veeam was recently accepted into the AWS Public Sector Partner Program — another advancement on our AWS partnership journey.
What is it and what’s the big deal?
The AWS Public Sector Partner Program provides opportunities to Veeam as a select, qualified partner to offer solutions on AWS delivering specific value to public sector organizations.
This means Veeam will be working even more closely with the AWS team to enhance our data management solutions to help government, education, and nonprofits to innovate on their Digital Transformation journey. As part of the AWS public sector ecosystem, Veeam is better positioned to serve our customers, and we look forward to the additional market exposure, opportunities, and industry-leading tools that AWS provides.
Earlier this year, we delivered the Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 with several major capabilities, but it was the addition of Veeam Cloud Tier with support for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) that received the most attention from our customers and partners. Cloud Tier provides unlimited capacity for long-term data retention by using native, cost-effective object storage integrations with Amazon S3.
The need for proven data protection, including cost-effective long-term storage, continues to grow in the public sector as organizations of all types generate massive amounts of data as they transform how they provide services.
Customer Story: British Columbia Forest Practices Board
A recent example of how Veeam is working to address data management challenges for the government industry is with the British Columbia Forest Practices Board. The Forest Practices Board is a government customer who was looking for a reliable backup and recovery solution to enable replication, reduce recovery time objectives (RTO), and achieve recovery point objectives (RPO). Veeam fit the bill with a solution to optimize their data management across a hybrid-cloud environment using Veeam Availability Suite, NetApp ONTAP, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon S3 Glacier. This is another excellent example of how Veeam and AWS come together to deliver a scalable and cost-effective solution with tape backup archival in Amazon S3 and Amazon S3 Glacier.
With the success of helping companies like the Forest Practices Board and the validation of our solutions into the AWS Public Sector Partner program, I look forward to seeing what more we can do together with AWS to deliver high-value solutions to public sector customers.
If you were at the AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington, DC, or at one of the other AWS Summits, we hope you stopped by and visited our Veeam booth or attended one of our sessions. If not, we hope you’ll stop by at one of the remaining AWS Summits and share your Digital Transformation journey. Let’s talk about how Veeam and AWS can help you solve your challenge along the way.
