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.

The Veeam Availability Platform “Next Big Thing,” which the company claims is its biggest announcement to date, is indeed a major step forward for the company. Whereas the company has risen to become a top 5 data protection and recovery software vendor primarily in the small and medium-sized business market and almost exclusively for virtual machines, this announcement broadens Veeam’s applicability to Windows and Linux physical environments and cloud environments plus tighter integration with IBM storage in the upcoming version 10 to complement integration with HPE, NetApp, and EMC in version 9.5.

The result is a product portfolio that will address the majority of data protection requirements among enterprise customers, thereby expanding Veeam’s potential market reach. Moreover, the company is aiming to be the best-in-class availability product for hybrid cloud deployments, an area of strategic importance for most IT organizations of all sizes.

The 2016 Veeam Availability Report, gathering insight from 1,140 senior IT decision makers (ITDMs) across 24 countries, clearly shows that the needs of the Always-On Enterprise™ are not being met, and that enterprises need to make availability a strategic priority or risk up to $16 million each year in lost revenue.

Key Findings compared to 2014 results:

  • Increase in unplanned downtime:
    • 1.4 to 1.9 hours for mission-critical applications
    • 4.0 to 5.8 hours for non-mission-critical applications
  • The average recovery time objective (RTO) for mission-critical applications is 3.0 hours vs service level agreements (SLAs) requiring 1.6 hours. Similarly, current recovery point objective (RPO) is 4.2 hours, but should ideally be 2.9 hours.
  • Annual downtime cost has risen a staggering $6M within a 12 month period
