IntelliFlash Storage Snapshot Plug-in for Veeam further extends data protection and management in virtualized and hybrid-cloud environments

SAN JOSE, CA – June 25, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) today announced support for Veeam® Universal Storage API on its family of IntelliFlash all-flash arrays. The release of the IntelliFlash Storage Snapshot Plug-in for Veeam enables customers to take full advantage of the advanced capabilities of Veeam Availability Suite™, ultimately providing customers with flexibility, scalability and increased backup and recovery performance for today’s modern data center environments.

The IntelliFlash family, which includes the NVMe™ N-Series all-flash array, is Western Digital’s latest addition to its broad portfolio of data center systems to achieve tight Veeam integration. Other Veeam supported solutions include the ActiveScale™ Cloud Object Storage System, which supports Veeam Cloud Tier via its S3-compatible interface, as well as the Ultrastar® Data60 and Data102 JBOD/JBOF storage platforms that help customers expand existing capacities or build tailored HDD and SSD combinations to balance performance and reduce costs.

“With the addition of the IntelliFlash Plug-in to our lineup of supported Veeam solution offerings, we’ve expanded our commitment with Veeam to ensure our joint customers’ data is priority number one — protected at all times,” said Stefaan Vervaet, senior director of solutions and alliances, Western Digital Data Center Systems. “Whether using IntelliFlash all-flash arrays, ActiveScale cloud object storage systems or Ultrastar platforms, our customers can rest easy knowing they have a solution that has been fully qualified to offer unmatched time-to-value for simple, highly-scalable enterprise backup and data management environments.”

The release of the IntelliFlash Storage Snapshot Plug-in for Veeam significantly improves Recovery Point Objective (RPO) Service Level Agreements (SLAs) of IntelliFlash all-flash arrays by leveraging efficient storage snapshots with Veeam software. This integration facilitates Veeam’s backup operations on the VMware vSphere® environment by eliminating backup window bottlenecks, as well as minimizes the impact on applications during the VM stunning process. Additional benefits of this joint solution include advanced Veeam features including fast, granular recovery with Veeam Explorer™ for Storage Snapshots, agentless backup, Instant VM Recovery®, Veeam DataLabs™ Secure Restore, SureBackup® and SureReplica.

“Our growing strategic partnership with Western Digital ensures that our joint enterprise customers receive fully supported solutions for simplified integration at a highly competitive price point,” said Ken Ringdahl, vice president, Global Alliance Architecture at Veeam. “With the new IntelliFlash Storage Snapshot Plug-in for Veeam, Western Digital joins a select group of Veeam alliance storage partners to integrate the Veeam Universal Storage API to provide customers a higher level of availability with better protection and management of ever-growing data volumes. As a result, this integration rounds out a broad range of Veeam integrated solutions for Western Digital that offer unique value to our customers.”
