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.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
