Most organizations adopt virtualization gradually and later discover the need to “get serious” about data center modernization. This required them to reassess their IT infrastructures, at which point they discovered that their old approaches were inadequate. Often, that discovery resulted in a decision to assess/use Veeam and Cisco UCS together. Reliability, performance, and agility—along with ease of management—appear to be why organizations are consistently selecting a combination of Veeam and Cisco UCS over their respective alternatives.

Read this new ESG White Paper, based on surveys conducted on ITDMs - Veeam and Cisco UCS Are Better Together and learn:

  • The interdependence between a superior approach to data protection and the success of one’s virtualization deployment strategy
  • Why virtualization is frequently the centerpiece of data center modernization
  • First-hand experiences of organizations that run highly virtualized IT environments and have been using both Veeam and Cisco solution components for at least three years
  • And more!

In a recent ESG survey commissioned by Veeam®, IT professionals were asked about how the cloud plays into their data protection strategies. The survey showed that organizations of all sizes are looking to add cloud-based data protection services.

Each cloud service permutation (BaaS, STaaS/DP, DRaaS, IaaS and SaaS) presents different data protection opportunities for service providers, all of which can be fulfilled by Veeam’s cutting-edge solutions.

In this solution showcase, Jason Buffington, Principal Analyst at ESG, states “[Veeam’s] next wave of innovation focuses on embracing the cloud and enabling service providers.” By walking through findings from the survey and configurations of cloud-powered data protection services, he demonstrates why Veeam’s Availability solutions should be considered a key component of any infrastructure hosting or cloud service.

What can your organization afford to lose?

Veeam® commissioned ESG to survey over 1,000 global IT decision makers to better understand the real -world impacts when service Availability goals are not met.

Overall results were surprising – demonstrating a startling amount of under-protected or unreliably recoverable data present within their organizations costing on average, $21.8M in annual downtime. Even worse, there was a 36% increase in YoY costs, reflecting the problem is only getting worse. Organizations need to start accelerating their planning and implementation of contemporary data protection solutions to ensure reliable and rapid recovery.

By now, every proficient and capable IT service provider or reseller has a good sense of how much cloud-powered data protection could matter to subscribers and potential subscribers. Those clients need to bolster their backup, recovery, and BC/DR capabilities—the cloud can enable them to accomplish such efforts more effectively and at a more reasonable cost. However, not one cloud-powered data protection solution has proven to be definitively superior.

As a service provider, you should strive to present a choice of offerings to your potential subscribers, ideally through a common management framework that is delivered via a consolidated, cohesive, relevant set of vendor solutions. Your prospects will have widely varying needs and aspirations tied to how the cloud could serve as part of their organization’s unique strategic initiatives for protecting data. Each need and aspiration is likely to be distinct, but they all can be fulfilled with the right vendor partner.

Read this white paper and learn:

  • Key findings from ESG Research about the most popular cloud-infrastructure use cases;
  • Business drivers and operational concerns of your IT decision-maker clients;
  • How adding cloud to a data protection strategy reduces data loss;
  • And more!

Backup and disaster recovery represent two of the most frequent uses for cloud storage today, in large part due to the operational agility and appealing cost structure that a secure offsite data repository provides.

But protecting organizational data in the cloud is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Organizations assessing how to leverage cloud-powered data protection and cloud-enhanced availability should know not only that is cloud not a “tape killer,” but also that three distinct types of cloud-based data protection services are prevalent today—and each has its own strengths.

The market for data protection and availability is undergoing a significant change. It is moving away from the scheduled backup and recovery approach based on making copies of the data kept in different silos. The shift is toward a more continuous data protection and availability approach. The vendors in this new space are still emerging, and different solutions use different technologies.

Veeam has been disrupting this business for the past eight years, but now it is becoming one of the establishment and is driving the market in new directions. In this report Ovum examines how Veeam sees the new market, how it is positioning itself, and what this vision means for organizations in terms of data protection.
