Veeam unveils Availability platform for hybrid cloud
Solution seeks to deliver availability for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads
Veeam Software has announced the launch of Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud.
According to IDC, 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 organisations 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.
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:
- Enterprise Continuity: Recovery Service Level Objectives (SLOs) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data; Disaster Recovery (DR) orchestration
- Workload Mobility: Availability for workloads across any cloud or location, to maximize IT investments and increase flexibility
- Compliance & Visibility: Proactive monitoring, reporting, testing and documentation to ensure business and regulatory requirements are met
“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.”
