When Veeam collaborates with other industry leaders, great things happen for our customers. Today, Veeam joined Nutanix on stage at the Nutanix .NEXT conference to unveil the latest addition to the Nutanix portfolio, Nutanix Mine with Veeam.
Nutanix chose Veeam as their strategic, data protection design partner to help them develop from the ground up a new, full-stack secondary storage solution that includes (yes, in the product itself) highly-integrated Veeam Backup & Replication as a turnkey solution.
Nutanix Mine with Veeam is a great example of how our joint customers win every time Veeam’s partners build solutions with the Veeam Availability Platform, because the Nutanix and Veeam technologies bring out the best in each other for a truly “1+1=3” outcome for customers. Nutanix Mine with Veeam combines the best of Nutanix expertise and recognized leadership in hyperconverged infrastructure, market-leading backup and replication from Veeam, jointly-developed integration and instrumentation, and single SKU ordering simplicity for a great overall customer experience.
Nutanix Mine with Veeam brings everything together in a single product that eliminates the need to align hardware, software, operating system and licensing for:
- Faster time to value with a better customer experience from proof of concept, to purchase, to productivity and unified support from Nutanix and Veeam for the entire solution built around Veeam Backup & Replication.
- Unified IT operations by integrating deployment and day-to-day management. Mine reduces complexity and simplifies administration.
- Drop in, scale up, and scale out that streamlines deployment and delivers cloud-like scaling for storage and data protection, without the proprietary-cloud storage add-on costs and rigid capacity limits of others in the market.
Organizations looking for the simplicity of an appliance will no longer have to settle for either antiquated software mechanisms or new but incomplete capabilities. Instead, Nutanix Mine with Veeam will be a wealth of value for Veeam customers and partners looking to simplify the journey beyond backup and towards true Cloud Data Management.
This new Nutanix product will be available later this year from Nutanix resellers, and was born directly from our joint customers’ input and demand. Nutanix Mine with Veeam builds on our successful Nutanix collaboration for Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV. Immediately following that announcement, customers began asking for an integrated storage management and data protection product that brings all the parts together. We listened.
Soon after, the idea of a Nutanix offering that delivers Veeam on a unified hardware and software stack took root. We knew we wanted to deliver something new, something different that our joint Nutanix-Veeam ecosystem can offer to set themselves apart. Nutanix Mine with Veeam eliminates product scoping cycles, preliminary testing and configuration so our partners can more quickly react to their customers’ needs — and go from “plan to protected” faster.
In some ways, Nutanix and Veeam have been on parallel journeys. Each of us entered markets that were presumed to be dominated by legacy approaches; and each of us reimagined how to achieve customer outcomes in ways that hadn’t been done before. And because of those efforts, both companies and our respective products are now recognized as disruptive leaders in our categories. As such, it made sense that when Nutanix wanted to build a turnkey data management platform, they would choose a kindred spirit like Veeam.
As exciting as Nutanix announcing Mine is, it’s equally important to note that like the release of the Veeam protection capabilities for Nutanix AHV, this is simply another milestone in the Veeam-Nutanix partnership. With innovation being the hallmark of both companies, we are continually working on iterations and enhancements, so stay tuned.
