Veeam makes it easy to deploy and test your backups by starting one or more VMs from backups, replicas or storage snapshots to create an isolated environment, fully fenced from production.
This critical data reuse feature ensures agility is at the core of your testing strategy.
For many organizations, backup data is an untapped resource that, with a few clicks, could easily become the gateway to advanced-level data analysis and business intelligence. The Veeam Data Integration API offers access to backup data, enabling experts to do what they do best.
You know you need to test, but when time and technology are no longer blockers, what’s stopping you? If it’s storage constraints, Veeam makes it easy to restore machines directly to AWS EC2 and Microsoft Azure to create a test environment in the cloud.
Data reuse is the ability to make your existing data work to accelerate your business goals in new ways. For example, a gold mine of information sits dormant inside of your backups simply waiting to be tapped. Backup data is a fantastic source of fresh data, or data close to production, to be used for important testing operations — security and patch testing for example.
To best reuse your backup data, a solution like Veeam® Backup & Replication™ can be used to instantly make your backup data available. The ability to be instant allows you to test with fresh data and accelerate other processes, including data mining and training — all from just a backup.
With cloud being a naturally dynamic environment that can be used to run even the largest of data centers, it is natural to take advantage of its power to perform regular backup testing. Key capabilities found in specialized backup software will help you to not only use the power of the cloud for backup and recovery testing, but will also ensure that your data arrives safely to the cloud where it waits to be restored.
A solution like Veeam Backup & Replication can automatically migrate your backups to the cloud immediately after each backup. Data is kept safe and encrypted on its journey to the cloud, where Veeam takes advantage of immutability to ensure that the backups cannot be changed or deleted throughout their life cycle. Finally, Veeam’s next-generation Instant Recovery Engine can instantly spin up copies of your production environment in the cloud for backup and recovery testing without the cost or disruption of replicating your environment on premises.
