Showcasing solutions powered by Veeam Software

Each year, Veeam® takes nominations for Veeam Innovation Awards (VIAs) from partners and customers in order to highlight some of the great solutions in the market that are powered by Veeam software components. This year, we received nearly 50 nominations, which were then vetted by a panel of 18 judges, resulting in four VIA winners for 2020.

VeeamON 2020 Best of Show

During VeeamON 2020, registered participants were able to read and watch a summary of each of the four VIA winning solutions and then vote on a “Best of Show” for VeeamON 2020. This year, we are proud to announce that IBM has been voted as the Best of Show among the 2020 VIA partner solutions – Congratulations IBM!

IBM Cloud has automated both Veeam availability and Cloud Connect for our customers. Customers have Veeam availability integrated into their Virtual Data Centers in a highly resilient and secure manner. Veeam Cloud Connect Replication is also enabled for customer replication and migration into their Virtual Data Centers. Veeam infrastructure is fully distributed across a Multi-Zone Region, while utilizing v10 to provide a secondary copy in a different region. We have deployed all of Veeam in a Highly Available manner, so that if the DC where the Veeam portal resides becomes unavailable, VMware will automatically recognize it and activate it in an available DC.

iland Test Drive is an automated cloud service trial platform that enables Veeam customers and partners to easily evaluate Veeam’s backup and recovery software with iland Secure Cloud BaaS and DRaaS. Test Drive was designed to reduce the time and effort needed to deploy and validate Veeam solutions in a fully-functioning, VMware-based cloud environment. With just a few clicks, customers can experience the actual look, feel, features and capabilities of Veeam and iland Cloud services together, as well as ensure that iland's performance, management, security and cost metrics meet business expectations before committing to a contract.

AutoRecover by OffsiteDataSync is an automation tool for customers to restore their backups directly to vCloud Director for disaster recovery, testing, validation and compliance initiatives. Using the OffsiteDataSync portal to look at backup chains, select the appropriate restore points/VMs to restore and initiate restore. AutoRecover automatically:

  • Builds out private vCloud Director environment
  • Imports backups
  • Initiates restore

When completed, an email is received with information on connecting to the new environment. After, the environment is automatically torn down. AutoRecover isn’t just for backup testing, it can be used in a declared disaster situation, allowing customers self-service recovery of systems for easy and secure services restoration.

The Managecast platform is a comprehensive Veeam monitoring portal built for service providers, consultants and end users to help monitor daily Veeam Backups. Managecast provides long‑term historical trending of backup jobs and repositories, ticketing integration, tracking of jobs that have not run, tracking loss of connection with Veeam Backup & Replication™ consoles (losing contact with Veeam management agent), high‑level dashboard showing backup activities, fully multi‑tenant and MSP‑enabled to allow third parties to track their client's backups, acknowledgement and tracking of events (who and when and any related notifications to clients) and anomaly detection (when backups go outside of "normal", such as excessive or decreased backup data).
