Veeam has launched the universal Veeam Data Platform, which includes Veeam Backup & Replication, the VeeamONE monitoring tool, the Veeam Recovery Orchestrator automation feature and SaaS backup modules for Salesforce and Office365, Computer Weekly reports.
The Kubernetes Kasten container backup product can be sold with Veeam Data Platform, but is not yet integrated into the VeeamOne console.
“We have put our solutions together in a new platform to respond to new data security challenges in ransomware, hybrid cloud and containerisation,”
said Patrick Rohrbasser, regional vice-president for Veeam.
Veeam Backup & Replication provides real-time backup functionality, asynchronous replication to a secondary Disaster Recovery (DR) site, and lag-free recovery – in almost any scenario imaginable, such as across virtual machines or physical machines, on-premises or in the cloud, Windows, Linux or Mac, files or databases, etc.
Veeam Backup & Replication v12 claims 500 new functions. These include immutable copies, now extended to all hosted copies of backups, which means volumes in block, file and object mode as well as cloud-stored data in AWS and Azure. Another salient addition is the possibility to directly save backups to object storage without conversion.
VeeamOne also detects ransomware hidden in backups. The software offers rapid resolution to these kinds of problems. Finally, VeeamOne brings analytics to backup. The customer can define conditions that must be fulfilled for backups to conform to its requirements and to audit them.
“Simply put, Veeam Data Platform allows enterprises to gain time as they face new challenges and with a shortage of skills,”
The software doesn’t just restore to where the customer wants, it also tests the data, cleans it of any infection if necessary, then puts the servers needed to run the data back online.
