Veeam Software announced its support for Microsoft Azure Stack, extending Veeam’s data protection and Availability capabilities across Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack as an extension of Azure.
“Most organisations have a ‘cloud-first’ strategy these days, so we are intensely focused on ensuring we deliver bullet-proof cloud availability,” said Peter McKay, co-CEO and president, Veeam. “We are extending our collaboration with Microsoft to ensure availability for any application, any data across any cloud.”
“As an extension of Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Azure Stack enables a truly consistent hybrid cloud solution for customers, which maximises their investments across cloud and on-premises environments,” said Mark Jewett, senior director, Azure hybrid product marketing, Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased that Veeam continues to make its deep data protection and availability expertise available to help our mutual customers improve business continuity in their hybrid clouds.”
With Azure Stack support, Veeam Availability solutions give customers a common backup and management platform for on-premises, virtual, physical, and cloud environments, ensuring rapid recovery of mission-critical applications. Service providers can manage and maintain control and visibility with easy tracking of tenant and end-user usage.
Veeam’s support for Azure Stack includes:
- Multi-tenancy. Veeam Cloud Connect isolates backup copies for each tenant, ensuring security and compliance;
- Multiple recovery options. Veeam Backup and Replication supports both granular item-level recovery through Veeam Explorers for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Active Directory and for Oracle, as well as full file-level restores for tenant files that were deleted or corrupted;
- Reporting and billing. Veeam Availability Console supports real-time monitoring and chargeback on tenant usage, allow either hosting providers or enterprise organisations to easily manage and bill their tenants for Availability usage.
Veeam support for Microsoft Azure Stack is expected to be available in early 2018.
