NEW Veeam Cloud Connect Replication coming in v9
Last year, Veeam released Veeam Cloud Connect, a new technology that allows the easy creation and consumption of offsite backup repositories. It was the first solution specifically designed around Service Providers, both from a technical and business point of view. Its extreme ease of use and capabilities made it an instant success, and as of today several hundreds of service providers are offering offsite backup services based on Cloud Connect.
As a first generation technology, everyone was expecting additional capabilities in the following versions, and the most common request has always been “are you going to add replication capabilities?”.
As you can guess from the title of this post, that’s exactly what is coming in the next version!
Veeam Availability Suite v9 will bring Veeam Cloud Connect Replication, a fast, secure cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) solution. DR is a great solution to increase the availability of modern datacenter, and does so by leveraging replication technologies and creating an off-site replica of virtual machines. When end users want to design and create a DR site, they are facing a problem: the capital expenses of building and maintaining the secondary site. In a second location, owned or rented, they need to deploy new hardware and software according to the size of their production environments, configure it and even manage it, virtually doubling their IT infrastructure efforts. Also, because production workloads are running for the most part within the primary site, the secondary one is rarely used, thus its cost it’s even higher when compared to its value.
