Enterprise IT is embracing multi-cloud as the go-to model for cloud deployments. By 2019, nearly 81% of enterprises will have adopted a multi-cloud strategy. While this trend gives organizations more flexibility overall, it puts added pressure on IT teams to manage backup and recovery in a more complex environment.

To reduce complexity and lower costs, it is imperative to deploy a single platform that consolidates management for all of your needs — including both on-premises infrastructure and any public cloud platform you choose.

Which features and functions give you the best opportunity for multi-cloud success?

This special white paper, developed in conjunction with TechTarget, outlines the key factors to consider in maximizing your multi-cloud strategy to achieve:

  • Non-stop business continuity
  • Digital transformation agility
  • Analytics and visibility
  • And more!

The traditional way of preparing for disaster recovery (DR) — by physically moving data off-site on tapes — is already old-fashioned. Leveraging the cloud is a more efficient way to modernize your DR strategy. Cloud-based DR provides a number of advantages over the traditional approach. It allows you to save with a pay-as-you-go model, use a functionally unlimited storage capacity and get the flexibility of the cloud. At the same time, integration of the cloud in your off-site backup and recovery solution brings up new challenges that you need to address.

This essential guide, by Orin Thomas, an IT Pro and bestselling author, covers the most important aspects to consider when planning your cloud backup and DR strategy. You’ll understand the benefits of cloud-based DR solutions in comparison to the traditional off-site backup and recovery services and get insights to implementing Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). The utilization of cloud facilities managed and offered by service providers makes DRaaS an excellent off-site backup and recovery solution for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The guide unlocks the most common concerns around data security management in the cloud and the cost-efficiency of cloud services. You’ll also get recommendations on how to meet compliance regulations and choose the right DRaaS vendor.

Read this e-book to learn how you can address the challenges around cloud backup and DR, including:

  • The drawbacks of traditional off-site backup and recovery
  • Managing and monitoring cloud backup and DR
  • Cloud security concerns
  • And more!

Disaster recovery (DR) helps companies to increase the Availability in modern data centers by leveraging replication technologies and creating standby replicas of virtual machines off site. However, replicating VMs is only part of the problem to solve: In order to make it a proper service, both end users and service providers need a solution that has a complete set of features and capabilities that go beyond replication.

Veeam Cloud Connect Replication is a fast, secure, cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) solution that brings Veeam’s cloud technology to the next level. VM replication with Veeam Cloud Connect is easy to use and simple to set up, thanks to a single TCP port connectivity protected by a secure, reliable SSL/TLS connection from the customer to the Disaster Recovery as a Service provider.

But, Veeam Cloud Connect offers even more than advanced image-based replication. Read this FREE white paper written by Veeam Evangelist and vExpert Luca Dell’Oca to learn more about Veeam Cloud Connect and:

  • Transparent networking
  • Interconnectivity between customers’ on-premises resources and their DR resources
  • Simplicity in networking

The DRaaS market gets a lot of buzz, but end users tell us it’s hard to do. Many of the products in the market today offer a DRaaS solution in addition to, or separate from, an overall data protection strategy, often pulling the focus of IT away from their current datacenter investments and momentum. These solutions add an additional layer of management complexity, and often leave businesses uncertain that they can actually recover if something goes terribly wrong.

All of this, combined with the dramatically increased interest in DRaaS, makes the DRaaS market a great opportunity for service providers and resellers.

Check out results of Veeam survey of service providers and resellers, and see what they have to say about DRaaS market opportunity today:

  • Importance of DRaaS to current and future business
  • Level of customer interest in North America, EMEA and APAC
  • What are the main drivers for DRaaS

This edition of VeeamUP is devoted to the increasingly popular topic of cloud-based Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). To reduce unplanned downtime to an absolute minimum and keep businesses operating smoothly, a secondary site for disaster recovery (DR) is vital. But, setting up and maintaining a separate DR site is expensive and time-consuming, which is why DRaaS presents such a compelling alternative.

In this issue of VeeamUP, we’ll take a look at the latest DRaaS developments and show you:

  • What DRaaS really means and the benefits it can bring to your organization;
  • Why adoption is starting to accelerate and why DRaaS is now a smart move for large enterprises as well as SMEs (small-to-medium enterprises);
  • How new technology advances enable service providers and their customers to implement DRaaS the right way — simply and affordably.
