New Veeam Availability Suite v9 Adds Cloud-based VM Replication, Also Enables Service Providers to Offer Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service
For Veeam Customers, Veeam Cloud Connect Will Provide Fully Integrated, Fast and Secure Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery, Dramatically Improving RTOs
Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced Veeam Cloud Connect will be extended to include advanced image-based VM (virtual machine) replication capabilities as a part of the new Veeam Availability Suite™ v9, which will be generally available later this year. The extended functionality also gives service providers the ability to provide their customers with cloud-based disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) with the new Veeam Cloud Connect Replication for Service Providers offering.
First introduced in Veeam Availability Suite v8, Veeam Cloud Connect makes it easy for Veeam customers to extend their backup infrastructure to the cloud for offsite backups. Included in v9, Veeam customers get a fully integrated, secure and efficient means to create replicas in the cloud, enabling protection of mission-critical applications with dramatically improved recovery time objectives (RTOs). By building a technology that securely and seamlessly bridges the Veeam customer to the service provider, Veeam removes the requirement for customers to build and maintain a disaster recovery site for offsite protection, offloading a tremendous amount of cost and complexity from their IT infrastructure. Veeam Cloud Connect, now with replication, is a comprehensive cloud-based DR (disaster recovery) solution designed to empower the Always-On Business™ and keep critical apps up-and-running, all while ensuring complete visibility and control remains at IT’s fingertips.
