In the world of business, a lack of speed can be fatal to your ability to compete. Perhaps that is why many organizations are embracing all-flash storage solutions for their data center environments. All-flash solutions help deliver more predictable performance across business workloads to ensure a more seamless digital experience to customers, partners and end-users. But, you need more than just speed to survive in this digital age. You also need Always-On Availability. Veeam is attending Pure Storage Accelerate in San Francisco in force this week to promote our joint offerings with Pure, celebrate our ongoing success in the enterprise space and make some exciting announcements about taking our partnership to the next level. Today, Pure Storage and Veeam provide a compelling solution for businesses that are undergoing a digital transformation. Pure’s three “E’s” of effortless, efficient and evergreen cloud-era flash solutions, enable organizations of all sizes to accelerate performance, simplify management, reduce costs and get a higher return on their storage investments. And, when combined with Veeam’s Always-On capabilities, our joint customers can pair the high performance of Pure’s all-flash technology with very high levels of Veeam application Availability, while gaining additional IT operational efficiencies across the board. In short, the combination of Pure’s Always-On speed with Veeam’s Always-On Availability, provides a very compelling “better together” solution for businesses looking to accelerate their digital transformation journey. But, it’s only going to get better. With the recent addition of Veeam’s Universal Storage API framework, we are happy to announce that Veeam and Pure Storage are collaborating on integrating Veeam Backup & Replication with Pure’s Storage Snapshots. This integration is planned to be available early next year and will provide businesses with the ability to leverage storage snapshots for significantly improved RPO and reduced infrastructure impact, delivering an even higher return on their IT investments. We are very excited about taking our partnership with Pure Storage to the next level to bring unprecedented levels of performance, Availability and efficiency to the enterprise. We look forward to seeing our valued customers and channel partners at Accelerate! Hope to see you at the show!
