CANNES, FRANCE, VMWORLD EUROPE, Feb. 26, 2008 Veeam Software, a leading provider of systems management tools for VMware ESX Server environments, today announced the general availability of its newest product, Veeam Backup. This innovative new product offers fast file-level recovery for VMware ESX Server environments, and delivers 2-in-1 value by including both standard backup and replication backup in a single product. Veeam Backup, as well as the entire Veeam Management Suite for VMware, will be demonstrated in stand 13 at VMworld Europe, where Veeam is a Silver Sponsor.
Conversations with our beta customers indicate a great deal of interest in a full-featured and reliable backup and recovery solution specifically designed for VMware, commented Ratmir Timashev, Veeam president and CEO. VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) is an excellent foundational framework, so our product works with and adds value to VCB. Backup is easy but recovery can be hard. Speed and ease of recovery of a whole virtual machine or granular file-level recovery, are key differentiators for Veeam Backup.
"EMA\'s research has shown that automated backup and recovery is regarded as the most important and most effective data center automation discipline," said Andi Mann, research director at leading IT analyst firm, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). "Unfortunately, in virtual environments it is often implemented using unsuitable tools, error-prone scripts, or questionable manual procedures. As virtualization increasingly handles mission-critical production workloads, it is vital to use effective backup and recovery tools that are built to manage the virtual environment."
Veeam Backup capabilities include:
