Veeam launch of new data protection suite 'biggest ever'

Veeam Software today announced the general availability of Veeam Availability Suite v10, upgrading its data protection capabilities that increase data availability, portability, and extensibility. 

Veeam Availability Suite now delivers modern file data protection for Networked Attached Storage (NAS), Multi-VM Instant Recovery to automate disaster recovery (DR) and greatly enhanced ransomware protection. 

With greater platform extensibility, data mining through APIs, and more than 150 major enhancements, Veeam has launched a robust solution for complete data management and protection for hybrid-cloud environments.

As organisations adopt hybrid cloud strategies to fuel rapid digital transformation, data is becoming critical to business success. 

With this laser focus on data innovation to drive business acceleration, new challenges have emerged in ensuring all data is agile, available, and connected. 

According to the 2019 Veeam Cloud Data Management Report, 73% of organisations are failing to meet users’ demands for uninterrupted access to applications and data; many companies are now looking to embrace cloud data management to better meet protection needs and leverage the power of their data. 

“v10 is the biggest release in the history of Veeam, creating the simplest solution for hybrid-cloud environments,” says Veeam chief technology officer and senior vice president of product strategy Danny Allan. 

“We have made it a priority to focus on innovative solutions and align our products with customers’ needs.”

According to Veeam, v10 protects modern workloads at scale with broader backup capabilities, achieves increased security via immutable backups with S3 Object Lock, and empowers deeper ecosystem API integration options.

“Cloud-based data protection is a growing need for many of the organisations I speak with, which are all in various stages of cloud adoption,” says 451 Research research vice president Henry Baltazar. 

“Solutions like this release provide organisations with new cloud data management capabilities to ensure that data is protected against threats such as ransomware, insider threats and malicious admins."

NetApp, an established partner of Veeam, welcomed the announcement of the new suite.

"The team at NetApp is very excited to see our partnership and product integration with Veeam continue to expand with the release of Veeam Availability Suite v10," says NetApp vice president & managing director A/NZ Paul Crighton.

"The powerful new NAS backup capability is a great enhancement that will deliver value to our customers by helping them to overcome the challenges of protecting very large, unstructured data sets.

"By significantly reducing time, risk and cost, this integrated solution gives businesses the flexibility to instead invest those resources into innovation and growth," says Crighton.

v10 enables businesses to achieve the following:

  •  Modernise and simplify the protection of large file shares and file servers with NAS backup.
  •  Keep business running with the Instant Recovery engine, and Multi-VM Instant Recovery for disaster recovery from massive datacentre outages.
  •  Simplify off-site backup and get 100% protection from ransomware and insider threats with enhanced S3 object storage integration and immutable backups.
  •  Reuse backup data to find new insights and put backups to work with greater platform extensibility and simplified third-party data analysis software integration.
  • Platform and ecosystem support including new capabilities for Linux, HPE Primera and HPE StoreOnce, Nutanix AHV, PostgreSQL, MySQL and others.

 
“HPE needs partners who understand the journey toward digital transformation depends on data and intelligence,” says Hewlett Packard Enterprise chief marketing officer Jim Jackson. 

“With Veeam, we ensure the critical data needed to accelerate business is safe and readily available to customers at all times. 

“We are thrilled that Veeam now supports HPE Primera and offers enhancements for HPE StoreOnce so customers’ data is always available, recoverable and protected.”
