VMware vSphere and Veeam: Providing Availability for the Always-On Enterprise
Watch Frank Rauch, Vice President, Americas Partner Organization at VMware, about partnership with Veeam
Organizations today no longer have tolerance for downtime, IT failures or lack of business continuity. New storage technologies, server/storage/network virtualization and the advent of cloud computing have all resulted in the formation of today’s modern data center. Providing Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ is essential for ensuring that your business is Always-On™ and accessible anywhere, anytime and from any device.
VMware vSphere enables organizations to confidently consolidate resources, run business-critical applications and respond faster to business needs. Together, the Veeam® and vSphere combination saves time and money and reduces risk for your organization. Veeam provides full VMware vSphere 6.0 support including:
VMware Virtual Volumes (VVOLs)
VMware Virtual SAN 6.2 (VSAN)
Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM) policy backup and restore
vSphere 6 tag integration
Backup and replication of Fault Tolerant virtual machines (VMs)
By deploying Veeam with your vSphere environment, you’ll run business-critical applications with confidence and respond to your business needs faster.
High storage costs and complexity often inhibit deploying a complete storage and backup solution. VMware VSAN and Veeam Backup & Replication™ help customers deploy a more integrated, highly efficient and cost-effective Availability solution.
VMware VSAN provides a simple, fast and efficient way to provision and manage storage at the server layer. Veeam replicates VMs at the host level, reducing the costs associated with array-based replication. Veeam’s unified console ensures Availability for your entire virtual infrastructure with industry-leading features such as:
Unlimited capacity, lower operating costs and a managed infrastructure are all promises of cloud-based services. But the benefits offered by the cloud must be weighed against performance, governance and security considerations offered by service providers.
Veeam delivers enhanced support for VMware vCloud Director that simplifies management and increases efficiency by empowering tenants with self-service backup and restore capabilities. Veeam also enables organizations to easily and confidently copy local backups to the cloud without sacrificing security or flexibility. Together, Veeam and VMware reduce the risk of losing critical business data by keeping backups off site and safe, which enables users to compress, deduplicate and encrypt backups to reduce storage costs and bandwidth usage.
