New vBrain.info Sponsor – Veeam
Time to announce that Veeam is back as my blog sponsor. I’m using Veeam Backup and Replication since Version 5 in my home lab and had used it at many customer sites. I’m very impressed how Veeam has evolved in the last couple of years giving us some of the best innovations for backup in highly virtualized environments like Instant VM Recovery, Tape out, Storage snapshots, vCloud Director support etc. Veeam Backup & Replication saves me several times from a complete disaster.
Veeam® recognizes the new challenges enterprises of all sizes across the globe face in enabling the Always-On Business™, one that must operate 24/7/365. To address this, Veeam has pioneered a new market of Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™. Unlike “Legacy Backup” solutions which provide recovery time (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) of hours or days, Veeam helps enterprises meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. This is achieved through a fundamentally new kind of holistic solution that delivers high-speed recovery, data loss avoidance, verified protection, leveraged data and complete visibility. Veeam Availability Suite™, which includes Veeam Backup & Replication™, leverages virtualization, storage, and cloud technologies that enable the modern data center to help organizations save time, mitigate risks, and dramatically reduce capital and operational costs.
Founded in 2006, Veeam currently has 37,000 ProPartners and more than 183,000 customers worldwide. Veeam’s global headquarters are located in Baar, Switzerland, and the company has offices throughout the world. To learn more, visit http://www.veeam.com.
