SANTA CLARA, CA: Open Source driven Software-Defined Storage provider Nexenta to provide fast, flexible, reliable and cost effective recovery and availability solutions for modern data centre providers and enterprises with its alliance with Veeam Softwarea disaster recovery and virtualization management software provider for VMware and Hyper-V virtual environments. This solution can help customers realize Recovery Time and Point Objectives (RTPO) of less than 15 minutes for applications and data via a single storage solution that can manage all rows of storage namely production, backup and archive.

This joint solution from Veeam and Nexenta empowers the organizations to continue their service despite interruptions in storage systems or back up processes. It enables them to attain enterprise-grade capabilities across all rows of source and target storage with a single easy to use solution. They can also reduce capital investment by optimizing the selection of cost-effective storage hardware for relevant row thereby creating higher utilization rates with inline data reduction.  It also helps in cutting operational costs by streamlining and unifying management of all storage resources.

This deal will provide companies with a comprehensive backup tool and storage environment that delivers fast, flexible, and reliable backup, recovery and availability. Enterprises are given two options for using NexentaStor as storage for their Veeam backup environment; where in one, they can back up VMware production workloads running on NexentaStor primary NFS storage, using NFS to connect with a Veeam proxy and then to a NexentaStor backup. While in the other, they can snapshoot data from primary to secondary NexentaStor storage then back it up with a Veeam proxy and store it in a backup repository.

“Trying to backup and store virtualized data with 20- to 30-year-old tools just isn’t going to cut it,” speaks Oscar Wahlberg, Sr. Director of Product Management at Nexenta. “The combination of Veeam’s VM-aware backup and NexentaStor is a nice marriage. It allows the IT administrators to figure out which VM is associated with which array to simplify management and provide ease of use while ensuring that backups and restores occur with their required SLAs and with the right economics.”
