BaaS, DRaaS or Both? Plenty of cloud Availability options with Veeam!
One of the common things that happen in my group of evangelists is helping organizations of all sizes take an Availability strategy to the cloud. When it comes to the cloud, Veeam has a lot of options and has had so for a number of years.
I frequently go back to one question: “What are you wanting to accomplish with a cloud or service provider technology?” This is where the answers get interesting. I’ve heard everything from: “I’m out of space in my data center,” “I want cheap storage,” “I have a credit to use in Azure,” “I want complete disaster recovery,” “I want to get data off-site but don’t have a second site myself,” and more. One of the great flexible aspects of cloud and service provider technologies is that they are not a singular use case; there is a technology available for nearly any requirement.
In regards to how specifically Veeam can help, there are two frequent approaches where many of my discussions end up. They usually revolve around recommendations around having Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Let’s look at these a little more closely.
