Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacentre environments, today unveiled an end-to-end backup, storage and recovery architecture with HP StorageWorks.
The blueprint includes Veeam Backup & Replication™, an award-winning data protection and disaster recovery solution that provides fast, flexible and reliable disk-based backups that protect virtualised applications and data. Combined with HP D2D StoreOnce Backup Systems, which leverage HP StoreOnce deduplication technology, the combined solution reduces backup storage requirements and slashes recovery time.
Veeam Backup & Replication performs fast full and incremental backups of virtual machines running on VMware vSphere™ to the HP D2D Backup Systems, which eliminate redundant data with HP StoreOnce deduplication software. This reduces overall storage requirements, resulting in significant cost savings. Veeam Backup & Replication automatically verifies the recoverability of every backup by creating a virtual machine (VM) in an isolated environment and running it directly from the backup file. It starts the VM, boots the operating system and confirms that applications inside the VM are running normally. Administrators know that the backups actually work—every backup, every VM, every time.
“This combined storage and data recovery solution provides exceptional value through technology innovation,” said Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. “We have fully certified this solution so customers can deploy it with confidence and achieve outstanding and affordable data protection.”
“Customers know they need to back up and protect their virtualised applications and data, but are always conscious of reducing data centre costs,” said Sean Kinney, Director of StoreOnce at HP. “The HP D2D StoreOnce Backup Systems provide a reliable and economical disk-based backup storage solution for Veeam Backup & Replication, allowing customers to achieve high availability of their virtualised environments, as well as recovery times measured in minutes, not hours.”
