Veeam, a company born on virtualization, has rapidly adapted to customer needs to become the leader in Intelligent Data Management. In keeping with its speed and momentum to market, Veeam’s highly anticipated NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 will soon be released. This promises to redefine cloud data management with cloud mobility for Microsoft Azure Stack, as well as native Azure Blob storage for long-term data retention.

Take a deeper look at the current and new innovations Veeam will showcase at Microsoft Ignite 2018:

  • Enabling cloud backup to Azure — automatically sending backups to the cloud (for both service providers and enterprise customers)
  • Protecting Office 365 email data in Azure — automatically externalizing backup of Office 365 data, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business to Azure
  • Protecting Microsoft Azure VMs — ensuring Availability of cloud-based workloads
  • NEW – 10x the savings on long-term data retention costs in Azure Blob with Veeam Cloud Tier
  • NEW – 2 steps to restore ANY backup to Azure and Azure Stack, including both physical and virtual machine backups.

2 steps to restore ANY backup to Azure and Azure Stack

As you probably know, Microsoft Azure Stack is an exciting innovation that extends the power of the Azure public cloud to on-premises. Building on Veeam’s announcement at Microsoft Ignite 2017, Veeam is publicly presenting Veeam Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure Stack. With similar functionality to existing Veeam Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure, this new mobility feature for Azure Stack allows you to restore and migrate workloads from on-premises to Azure Stack, or even from Microsoft Azure to Azure Stack, all with a 2-step process!

This means that in the event of a failure, or if you want to migrate a current VM to Azure Stack, you can quickly achieve this through the built-in Veeam Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure Stack functionality that will be available in the upcoming update.

10x the savings with native data retention for Azure Blob

Another big highlight at Ignite is Veeam’s highly anticipated, native Azure Blob support known as Veeam Cloud Tier. This will give customers an automated data-management solution designed to simplify data transfer to Azure Blob storage, with up to 10x the savings on long-term data retention.

With this upcoming feature, it has never been easier to save on costs by archiving your Veeam backups offsite with infinite scalability into Azure Blob. By leveraging Veeam’s proven Scale-Out Backup Repository (SOBR) technologies, customers can access the cloud directly for storage of long-term data retention. Also, unlike other solutions, Veeam does not charge storage tax fees for storing data in the cloud — making this one of the most cost-effective cloud data retention solutions in the industry!


There’s a lot of buzz at Microsoft Ignite around Veeam’s new cloud management capabilities for Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack coming in NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4. As the Leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise, Veeam continues to deliver innovative solutions — with cloud mobility for Microsoft Azure Stack and native data retention for Azure Blob.
