Veeam Cloud Connect Now Available to Service Providers as a Microsoft Azure Certified Solution in Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Veeam® Software, provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced the availability of Veeam Cloud Connect within the Azure Marketplace. Veeam Cloud Connect is available as a pre-configured Microsoft Azure Certified for Virtual Machines solution, which service providers can use with Microsoft Azure to offer cloud repositories for Veeam availability solutions and services. With just a few clicks, service providers have an Azure-based solution for managing and moving backups off site to the cloud.

“This collaboration brings together solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™ with a world-class cloud infrastructure,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “It’s yet another demonstration of Veeam’s commitment to enabling its partners to deliver the next-generation cloud services customers are demanding. As an Azure Certified solution, Veeam Cloud Connect provides the thousands of Veeam and Microsoft partners with a fast path to expand their cloud-based services.

Veeam Cloud Connect will also support Azure for Veeam partners who are building Veeam availability services on their own and need the on-demand scalability and capacity that Azure offers to grow their business.

“Both customers and service providers are looking for cloud infrastructure and solutions they can trust,” said Garth Fort, General Manager of Enterprise Partners, Microsoft. “Veeam Cloud Connect and its availability from the Azure Marketplace gives service providers the ability to provide Veeam backup hosting services seamlessly, allowing private networks and the public cloud to work as one.”

Veeam Cloud Connect, part of the new Veeam Availability Suite™ v8, gives Veeam customers a fully integrated, secure and efficient means to move backups to an offsite backup repository managed by the service provider of their choice, which enables them to avoid an upfront capital investment in their own offsite infrastructure. Service providers get a simple, powerful platform to deliver fast and secure backup to the cloud for over 111,500 Veeam customers. In fact, Veeam Cloud Connect is so simple to set up that a service provider can offer offsite backup services to customers in less than 10 minutes using the service provider’s own cloud infrastructure or public clouds.

Pricing and Licensing

The Veeam Cloud Connect platform for service providers will be generally available in simultaneous release with Veeam Availability Suite v8 and Veeam Backup & Replication™ v8 in Q4, 2014. Pricing is per virtual machine (VM) and starts at $4.50 per month per VM in North America. In other regions, the platform is available to service providers at local pricing. Veeam Cloud Connect components that allow Veeam customers to connect to offsite backup repositories are included in all editions of Veeam Availability Suite v8 and Veeam Backup & Replication v8 at no additional charge. Veeam Cloud Providers (VCPs) can use their standard Veeam Cloud Connect license as they provision Veeam Cloud Connect from the Azure Marketplace. Resellers and service providers have the flexibility to pay only for the Azure compute and storage resources that their Veeam service offering consumes.
