Veeam Software [NYSE: VMW]: Bridging the Availability Gap

William H. Largent, CEO
According to Gartner report, “By the end of 2017, almost 60 percent of large enterprises will be seen transitioned from a sole dependency on traditional disaster recovery (DR) management to a broader use of IT service continuity management system.” In the present digital business era, well-orchestrated and tested DR plans continue to remain one of the primary challenges of the CIOs as they are often found to be unreliable and difficult to execute, putting compliance and enterprise availability at risk. To this end, Veeam Software enables modern SLAs for data and application recovery to be met, reduces costs, increases reliability by eliminating manual processes, and meeting the compliance requirements. “Since the company started in 2006, we have always been at the cutting edge of innovation and have been disrupting status quo thinking,” asserts William H. Largent, CEO at Veeam Software. By delivering Availability for the Always-On Enterprise, the firm enables customers to mitigate risks, save time, and considerably reduce the capital and operational costs.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator from Veeam Software offers orchestration of Veeam backups and replicas through a defined disaster recovery plan, non-disruptive testing, automated documenting, updating and reporting. Veeam Backup & Replication—the firm’s easy-to-use and powerful backup and Availability solution proffers speedy and reliable recovery of virtualized applications—bringing virtual machine backup and replication together in a single software solution. With on-premises Veeam deployments, customers can evade the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an offsite infrastructure for backups or disaster recovery.

The Columbus, OH based firm enables Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) as part of a comprehensive availability strategy, taking on investments made in the datacenter and extending them through the hybrid cloud. Veeam’s DRaaS offering is considered as a part of a comprehensive availability strategy, and delivers continuous user experience—that resultantly minimizes the total cost of protecting the data i.e., backup, replication and cloud. Veeam offers affordable and efficient, imaged-based replication for true DR—Recovery Time and Point Objectives (RTPO), cost-effective storage, application and advanced networking capabilities.

Veeam Cloud Connect—the firm’s image-based VM replication offers a complete integrated, secure cloud-based DR through a service provider. With Veeam Cloud Connect, users can reap the significant benefits of hybrid cloud architecture without having the need to sacrifice direct line of communication and personal relationship with the DRaaS provider.

As a corroboration of such prowess, Veeam Software assisted Uptime Group, a service firm that provides quality infrastructure solutions in an innovative atmosphere with a controlled growth pattern. Uptime Group wanted an easy and fast way for reseller customers to extend their on-premises VMs to the Uptime Elastix cloud. Veeam Cloud Connect helped Uptime Group transition reseller customers to the cloud quickly and easily, making BaaS and DRaaS a profitable, recurring revenue stream. With this, the client’s cloud business grew by more than 30 percent each year and was able to deliver round the clock Availability complementing Cisco and Microsoft solutions. “We had such a good experience with Veeam backing up our internal VMs that we made Veeam an integral part of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings for hosted customers,” says Erlend Schenkels, Managing Partner of Arxus, an Uptime Group company.

Veeam has always been a company synonymous with innovation and customer satisfaction. In a disruptive and innovative vein, the firm solely has its focus on empowering enterprises to deliver 24/7/365 availability and leverage the potential of the present digital economy. The firm’s strategy for the future is clear, they are intended to add richer features and functionality to their portfolio—this will not only deliver the needs of today’s users, but also provide a foundation for the future.
