Veeam and VMware: Providing Availability for the Always-On Enterprise


Sanjay Poonen, Chief Operating Officer of VMware, discusses why VMware + Veeam are Better Together

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 enables organizations to confidently consolidate resources, run business-critical applications and respond faster to business needs. Together, Veeam® and VMware save time and money while reducing risk for your organization. Veeam provides full VMware vSphere 6.5 support including:

  • VMware Virtual Volumes (VVOLs)
  • VMFS 6 datastores
  • NBD compression
  • vSAN 6.6
  • Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM)
  • Backup and replication of fault-tolerant virtual machines (VMs)
  • And more!

By deploying Veeam and VMware, you’ll run business-critical applications with confidence and respond to your business needs faster.

Veeam and vSAN

High storage costs and complexity often inhibit deploying a complete storage and backup solution. Veeam Backup & Replication™ and vSAN 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:

  • Instant VM Recovery®
  • Granular, application-item recovery with Veeam Explorers
  • VM replication
  • New features that further leverage IT investments in modern storage and the cloud

Veeam Backup & Replication has been tested extensively with vSAN and is now certified as a vSAN Ready solution.

Veeam and vCloud Director

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 with tenant self-service for backup and restores to:

  • Reduce management burden while improving recovery time objectives (RTOs)
  • Drive down costs and consumption with custom-built policy group templates
  • Maintain confidentiality and ease-of-use with central control in an intuitive interface

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.
