Cisco and Veeam

Availability solutions for next generation data centers

Frank Palumbo, Senior Vice President of Cisco, discusses why Cisco + Veeam are Better Together

Veeam® and Cisco UCS enable Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ with cutting-edge technology for today’s modern data centers. The combination of Veeam Availability Suite™ and Cisco UCS allow users to meet the most stringent recovery time and point objective (RTPO™) required for tier-1 applications; less than 15 minutes for most workloads. Veeam is the perfect companion for pre-validated Cisco UCS designs including FlexPod, Vblock and VSPEX. Together, Veeam and Cisco help customers realize the full potential of virtualization and the converged infrastructure by minimizing risk, decreasing downtime and easily adapting to business changes.

Cisco HyperFlex Systems and Veeam

Veeam complements Cisco HyperFlex, to deliver data Availability, protection and disaster recovery for virtualized environments. HyperFlex provides high availability for the cluster by mirroring data within the cluster, and proactively self-healing in case of hardware failure.  Veeam delivers efficient virtual machine (VM) backup and replication to dramatically lower the recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO), for RTPO™ of <15 minutes for ALL applications and data.

Veeam replication between HyperFlex clusters, both local and distributed, provides site-level DR. Veeam also provides backup and recovery at the VM- and item-level for instant recovery from more common, day-to-day problems. These isolated Veeam managed backups, stored on secondary storage, cloud or tape, allow organizations to meet both internal and external data protection and recovery.
