“Whether in the data center, cloud or combination of both, you must build the right type of infrastructure to protect your data, and downtime can’t be tolerated in the modern economy… the consequences are too grave. ESG research shows that loss of employee productivity is the number one impact of downtime as reported by 46% of organizations among many other business and operational impacts. Veeam is well positioned with HPE to safeguard data to ensure it’s always on, and always protected. Over the last 10 years, Veeam has developed HPE specific portfolio integrations creating ease of use, reliability and scalability of data protection, and we believe Veeam will continue to invest in future integrations for years to come.” – Christophe Bertrand, Senior Analyst at ESG.
Announced during HPE Discover 2021, the award represents one of several significant milestones in the expansion and success of the Veeam and HPE relationship. To continue exceeding customer outcomes and expectations, several new partnership capabilities have been added:
- The joint HPE GreenLake and Veeam offering has continued to evolve and provides customers with a robust “as-a-service” experience. This enables HPE GreenLake and Veeam deliver an end to end “as-a-service” experience with a platform for Modern Data Protection that reflects customers’ evolving desire for the cloud experience. This also empowers organizations to streamline their data transformation agenda, with the safeguards of backup and replication. Through HPE GreenLake, Veeam’s Universal License (VUL) brings the portable license and pricing into total harmony.
- With the recent announcement of Veeam Backup & Replication™ v11, Veeam introduced faster backup and restores with asynchronous snapshot replication support for HPE Primera mission-critical storage, driving Catalyst Copy improvements for HPE StoreOnce and HPE Cloud Volumes Backup, and enabling the fastest ever Veeam all-in-one backup platform performance when using the HPE Apollo 4510 Gen10 System. HPE Engineering has seen doubling of performance through testing of this optimized V11 code with HPE Apollo.
- Kasten K10 by Veeam, now available from HPE, enables enterprises to confidently run and protect cloud-native applications on Kubernetes, across private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. HPE Ezmeral Container Platform applications can also be seamlessly recovered and redeployed across clusters and sites to facilitate effective disaster recovery strategies.
- The new Veeam Universal Storage API plug-ins for both the HPE XP Platform and HPE SimpliVity will provide storage snapshot integration, enabling customers to realize faster and more frequent backup and replication of VMware vSphere VMs without any performance impact on production workloads, driving efficiencies and lowering costs in data safeguarding strategies.
- HPE North America is now a Veeam Accredited Services Partner (VASP), which strengthens HPE’s capabilities to sell, deploy and support Veeam solutions, and ensures enterprises realize satisfaction through HPE PointNext Advisory and Professional Services.
