Veeam Releases New Data Platform


Veeam Software has released the NEW Veeam Data Platform, a single platform delivering data security, recovery and hybrid cloud capabilities.

 The Veeam Data Platform, which includes Veeam Backup & Replication (VBR) v12, provides secure backup and fast, reliable recovery that keeps business running.

 It brings together the latest features offered from Veeam into a single robust solution that is offered in three enterprise-grade editions for protecting Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes applications across complex and expanding IT environments and the increasing set of challenges facing every organisation from outages to errors and ransomware.  

Veeam Data Platform delivers the three key requirements to keep a business running: data security, data recovery and data freedom to backup and use data from anywhere without platform or cloud lock-in.

 There are three enterprise-grade editions: Foundation, Advanced and Premium.

 All editions contain Veeam’s award-winning VBR and Instant Recovery; Advanced and Premium editions also deliver advanced resiliency features, including monitoring, analytics and recovery.  

  • Foundation Edition offers the industry’s most complete data protection with VBR v12, which adds more than 500 new features and enhancements. 
  • Advanced Edition combines VBR with Veeam ONE (ONE) to give customers deep, intelligent monitoring and observability to identify and resolve any backup or recovery problems before they begin. 
  • Premium Edition offers ultimate enterprise Modern Data Protection and recovery capabilities as the premier offering with VBR, ONE and Veeam Recovery Orchestrator (VRO). Building on the other editions, Premium adds the full automation of complex data recovery processes with near-zero Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) while automating testing and providing complete data resiliency with the confidence of one click recovery. Premium edition customers are also eligible for the new Veeam Ransomware Warranty which covers the cost of data recovery, up to $5 million dollars, in the event of a ransomware or cyber-attack. 

“Organisations are more vulnerable than ever. Over the past twelve months, 85% of organisations were attacked at least once; up from 76% in last yeari,” said Danny Allan, CTO and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. “We understand IT leaders feel they aren’t sufficiently protected, and as IT environments continue to grow more complex and demanding, it’s now obvious that Modern Data Protection must be integrated into the overall cyber preparedness plan. The Veeam Data Platform brings the best of Veeam solutions together to deliver a single platform with relentless security, reliable data recovery and trusted data freedom, and is designed to give our customers the choice to leverage the right solution that fits their needs and keeps their business running.”   

 “As hybrid cloud becomes the deployment architecture of choice, and cyber security threats become pervasive, the need to robustly provide backup and replication is crucial to enterprises. Veeam has been a market leader in this space and the new Veeam Data Platform launch demonstrates the company’s commitment to innovation.” – Steven Dickens,  Senior Analyst, Futurum Research.

“52% of businesses are now utilising containers in production environmentsiii. Kasten K10 by Veeam has emerged as the leader in providing backup, disaster recovery, and application mobility solutions for containers operating in Kubernetes environments. The new Veeam Data Platform provides organisations with a centralised solution that offers seamless data protection operations and investment protection, while also addressing the unique requirements of Kubernetes environments, giving organisations ultimate data freedom.” – Gaurav Rishi, vice president of Product Management, Kasten by Veeam

Together, with the expanded integration for USAPI and Veeam Direct to Object, Veeam and Pure Storage are enabling joint customers to benefit from unmatched disaster recovery performance, granularity and simplicity, and ultimately empowering these organisations to strengthen their cyber resilience in today’s complex and dynamic business environment.

Veeam continues to set the standard for Modern Data Protection by strategically building object storage into its platform to provide customers with simpler, more cost-effective, and more resilient solutions. Scality’s partnership with Veeam has deep roots, and we feel privileged to be one of the object storage vendors to support the Smart Object Storage API, which enables customers to take advantage of the unlimited scalability of object storage without sacrificing performance.” – Wally MacDermid, Vice President, Strategic Alliances, Scality.

“Ransomware is a top concern for all organisations and backups are increasingly becoming the number one target. The newly released Smart Object Storage API in the new Veeam Data Platform enables Veeam users to send their backup data directly to Object First’s immutable and reliable ransomware-proof storage. By combining Veeam with Object First, organisations can rest easy knowing their backups are ransomware-proofed with a simple, powerful, and affordable data protection solution.” —David Bennett, CEO, Object First.
