Veeam Software has announced that the new Veeam Availability Suite v9, to be released later this year, will integrate with EMC VNX and VNXe hybrid storage arrays. Other new major features of the new Veeam Availability Suite v9 will be announced throughout the summer and fall of 2015.
As a result of Veeam’s ability to integrate with EMC, enterprise IT will be able to use Veeam Backup from Storage Snapshots to rapidly create backups from EMC VNX or VNXe storage snapshots up to 20 times faster than competing products. In addition, IT can easily recover individual items from these storage snapshots in two minutes or less through the use of Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots, without the need for staging or any other intermediate steps.
Veeam is able to bring additional restore granularity and intelligence to recovery from VNX storage snapshots. Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots enables multiple recovery scenarios, whether recovering an individual file, restoring an individual application item such as an Exchange e-mail or SharePoint document, or even recovering a single VM in a matter of minutes. As a result of this integration, users can achieve much lower RPOs (recovery point objectives) and lower RTOs (recovery time objectives) with minimal impact on production VMs.
“Veeam is committed to providing Availability for the Modern Data Center, which for us means achieving a recovery time and point objective (RTPO) of 15 minutes or less,” said Rair Timashev, CEO at Veeam. “To provide true availability, Veeam is taking full advantage of modern data center technologies such as virtualization, cloud and advanced storage technologies like EMC’s VNX and VNXe hybrid flash storage arrays. This helps us to further strengthen our enterprise presence, enabling users to create backups from storage snapshots every 5 minutes and recover any application and data much faster to enable the Always-On Business.”
The EMC VNX family delivers industry-leading innovation and enterprise capabilities for file and block storage in a scalable, easy-to-use solution. This storage platform combines powerful and flexible hardware with advanced efficiency, management, and protection software to meet the demanding needs of today’s enterprises.
All of this is available in a choice of systems ranging from affordable entry-level solutions to high-performance, petabyte-capacity configurations servicing the most demanding application requirements.
