Veeam ups the ante with new cloud-based disaster recovery offering

“It is critical to keep standby copies of data both on and off-site.”

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.

According to Veeam, the extended functionality 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.

“It is critical to keep standby copies of data both on and off-site,” says Ratmir Timashev, CEO, Veeam.

“Veeam Cloud Connect not only enables our users to fulfil the offsite requirement without having to invest in offsite infrastructure or management, but also presents new opportunities for service providers to build recurring revenue from their existing customer base, expand their presence in the DRaaS market, and establish relationships with new customers.”

First introduced in Veeam Availability Suite v8, Timashev says Veeam Cloud Connect allows Veeam customers to extend their backup infrastructure to the cloud for offsite backups.

Included in v9, Veeam customers can create replicas in the cloud, enabling protection of mission-critical applications with dramatically improved recovery time objectives (RTOs).

According to Timashev, Veeam Cloud Connect, now with replication, is a “comprehensive cloud-based DR (disaster recovery) solution” designed to keep critical apps up-and-running, all while ensuring complete visibility and control remains at IT’s fingertips.
