NetApp and Veeam® combine to deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ by helping organizations meet today’s service-level objectives through enabling recovery of any IT service and related applications and data within seconds and minutes. The Veeam Availability Suite provides Enterprise Scalability which enables businesses to scale up backup and replication workloads and shorten backup windows across NetApp storage systems, without impacting the production environment.
With Veeam and NetApp FAS, FlexPod and E-Series systems, customers can create image-based backups as often as needed ― even during business hours ― with little to no impact on production for ALL applications and data, and for all applications in vSphere and Hyper-V environments.
Veeam helps reduce risk by providing much quicker backup than our legacy tool, our backup window decreased by 63% with Veeam—from 24 hours to 9 hours. Faster backup lets us back up more frequently, allowing us to add 30% more backups for more recovery points. Read more

Veeam integration with NetApp
Veeam builds on NetApp’s storage architecture for efficient, flexible backup and recovery operations. Now, new Veeam features leverage your existing NetApp investment further to deliver fast backups that won’t slow down business. The combination of NetApp’s low RPO capabilities and Veeam’s low RTO enablement allows you to create backups from storage snapshots up to 20 times faster than competitive offerings, and restore them quickly when needed.
Veeam Explorer™ for NetApp Storage Snapshots: Recover individual items or entire VMs quickly and efficiently from NetApp Snapshot, SnapMirror and SnapVault. Take advantage of the low overhead that periodic storage area network (SAN) snapshots offer and perform granular recovery from virtual machines. Veeam Backup & Replication™ automates the entire process to recover individual files, items or entire VMs in two minutes or less — without staging or intermediate steps.
Backup from NetApp SnapMirror and SnapVault: Protect your environment’s high performance by completely eliminating backup impact on your production storage. With Veeam, you can backup from available NetApp secondary storage resources, keeping your primary storage free to meet productivity demands. These capabilities are the perfect complement to Veeam’s ability to quickly restore from native NetApp storage.
On-Demand Sandbox™ for Storage Snapshots: Veeam On-Demand Sandbox allows you to quickly and easily create isolated copies of your environment. It is the perfect solution for quickly creating a production-accurate environment for testing, troubleshooting and training your IT staff. Plus, you can leverage primary storage snapshots to provision exact replicas of your production environment without having to back up your system first.
In addition to fast backups and quick recovery from NetApp Snapshot, SnapMirror and SnapVault, NetApp FAS and FlexArray (V-Series) customers can meet the most stringent RTPO of tier-1 applications with:
Reduce data loss by automating the creation of secondary backups from NetApp SnapVault
Verified protection by automating the testing of backups to guarantee the recoverability of every file, application and virtual machine
A cloud-ready platform that enhances data Availability, an efficient way to get backups off site to a service provider

Top industry awards
National Laboratory Depends on Veeam for Data Protection, Visibility and Control in Virtual Environment
We chose Veeam based on its backup performance and fast
recovery capabilities; however, it has additional features that
appealed to us, such as built-in replication for easy failover
during disaster recovery, deduplication to reduce backup
repository space and multi-hypervisor support.
