Veeam to support AIX and Solaris


Veeam Software has extended its portfolio of Availability solutions to support IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris operating environments.

The AIX and Solaris support is enabled through a technology partnership with Cristie Software. Cristie has over 3000 customers worldwide and more than 1000 enterprises using its software specifically for AIX and Solaris systems. Cristie’s software helps organisations protect, recover and move critical machines to dissimilar hardware, hypervisor and cloud environments as part of their migration strategies and disaster recovery planning.

Based on Cristie’s technology, Veeam’s support for AIX and Solaris will be enhanced and integrated into Veeam Availability Platform.

“Veeam’s strategy is to extend its leadership position in VMware and Hyper-V to deliver Availability for any app, any data on any cloud. Our support for AIX and Solaris furthers that strategy,” said Peter McKay, co-CEO and president, Veeam. “Enterprises need to enhance business efficiency and security while embracing the cloud, but many mission-critical databases and applications are still running, and will continue to run, on AIX and Solaris.

“We are pleased to extend support for physical workloads in these environments, in addition to Windows and Linux. Enterprise customers can now replace legacy backup solutions with a single comprehensive data protection and Availability solution from Veeam,” he said.

Veeam’s support for AIX and Solaris operating environments will be available in 2018. For more information, visit
