Delivers Next Generation of Availability for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads to enable the Always-On Enterprise
BAAR, Switzerland – August 23, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that delivers Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced the next generation of Availability: Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud.
According to IDC[i], enterprises are engaged in a continuous digital transformation process as they adapt to or drive disruption by leveraging digital competencies. To enable this, we are already at the stage where switching to a cloud-first strategy is a necessity for survival, not a strategy for competitive advantage. By 2019, most organizations around the world will need to complete the shift to a predominantly cloud-based IT environment, and this places a huge pressure on availability tools to deliver a constant experience across multiple environments.
In a game-changing move to address these challenges, Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud provides businesses and enterprises of all sizes with the capabilities to ensure Availability for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads in the Hybrid Cloud through the following capabilities:
“Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud represents an inflection point for Veeam,” said Peter McKay, President and COO at Veeam. “In today’s digital world, we know that nothing less than 24.7.365 access to data and applications is acceptable, and as enterprises embrace new technologies to deliver what their users demand, Veeam has yet again risen to the challenge. More than 200,000 Veeam customers have embraced our availability solutions over the past 10 years, and as we look to the future, Veeam Availability Platform dramatically expands our capabilities and market penetration. It marks a new era in how we address enterprise requirements for a comprehensive Availability solution for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads. It strengthens our position as a principal innovator and a leader in enterprise Availability for years to come.”
“Enterprises are engaged in a continuous digital transformation process as they adapt to or drive disruptive changes in their customers and markets. Success in these digital transformation efforts depends upon data and application availability in the hybrid cloud” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director Protection, Availability and Recovery at IDC. “A recent worldwide survey of Veeam customers conducted by IDC revealed solid availability business results, including significant improvements in SLA compliance, downtime, and IT operations management time as compared to other solutions used prior to Veeam.”

Veeam Availability Suite
NEW Veeam Availability Console

“Having knowledge of what the future will look like, with an understanding of the Veeam product roadmap is key,” said Mario Angers, Manager Systems at University of British Columbia (UBC). “It allows us to develop the roadmap for our community cloud service offering, which we can then communicate to our clients. Our goal is to offer a 100 percent self-service offering within our community cloud. The No. 1 item our clients have been requesting is self-restores of their backups, with the launch of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5, we continue to get closer to that 100 percent self-service goal. By giving more control to our clients, we continue to lower our support costs and can re-invest those dollars back into our community cloud. Also, with 9.5, Veeam moves further into the Enterprise space, which is key for us, giving us the scalability needed to continue growing our community cloud.”
Veeam today also unveiled new capabilities supporting Microsoft Office 365. NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 enables an enterprise to work anywhere and at any time without the need to maintain its own email infrastructure. However, it does not replace the need to have a local backup of email data. With Office 365, the data is owned and controlled by the business so the business is also responsible for protecting it. The new Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 mitigates the risk of losing access to email data and ensures email data Availability to users and the business. With this product, customers can:
Integrated with Veeam Backup & Replication, this new product also allows users with hybrid environments to easily migrate mailbox data between Office 365 and on-premises Exchange. Expected to launch in Q4 2016, a free one-year subscription of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 will be available for customers of Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication of all editions. In addition, customers of Enterprise Plus edition of Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication will receive a free three-year subscription.[ii]
Also announced today, additional primary storage integration with the IBM Storwize family and IBM SVC platform will be included in Veeam Availability Suite v10. Additional information on v10 will be released during VeeamON 2017, the world’s Premier Data Center Availability Event, taking place May 16 – 18, 2017 in New Orleans, LA. Registration is now open.
