Veeam enables recovery to Azure


Veeam Software announced the immediate availability of Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure. This new on-demand turnkey solution includes the new free product, Veeam PN (Powered Network).

Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure provides a simple, highly secure means to recover on-premises workloads to the public cloud. With Veeam Availability Suite, IT can automatically spin-up an Azure cloud instance and securely connect the business to customers, partners, and employees regardless of their location, without incurring the cost of a redundant standby system.

This turnkey solution delivers cloud restore for Veeam backups and is enhanced with Veeam PN, a light-weight software-defined networking (SDN) solution that simplifies VPN installation and eliminates the need to set up a complex VPN to create a recovery site in Microsoft Azure.

Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure with Veeam PN provides complete cloud-based data recovery to help organisations overcome the high capital expense and challenges of building and maintaining a remote recovery site, said Veeam in a statement.

“The last year was a terrible year for natural disasters around the world, from hurricanes and wildfires to earthquakes and floods,” said Danny Allan, vice president, product strategy at Veeam. “But while organisations have known they needed to prepare for any type of failure, setting up a redundant site has proved prohibitively expensive for many. With Veeam Recovery to Microsoft Azure, enterprise executives can sleep soundly, knowing that, if disaster strikes, the business will keep operating in the public cloud – without breaking the bank or taking up all of IT’s time.”

“This latest capability is a simple, viable, fast, and low-cost option to our customers’ Disaster Recovery invocation scenarios via the leveraging of Azure Cloud,” said Effendy Ibrahim, vice president, Asia & Japan, Veeam. “In addition to offering ‘Right Click’ restoration of workloads into Azure from the Veeam console, Veeam can also now completely simplify the network communication into Azure during a DR event.”
