In the fast-paced world of technological advancement, staying ahead is crucial for businesses. The relentless shift towards virtualized environments means that failing to adapt can leave you lagging behind. Veeam is the solution designed for the present and future, leveraging virtual technology to reduce storage costs and enhance backup efficiency.
Put simply, Veeam is tailored for the modern, virtualized world. Traditional backup tools were created for the physical realm and have been retrofitted to accommodate virtualization, limiting their flexibility.
Here’s how Veeam can support you and your business:
1. Cost Savings: One of the most compelling reasons to switch to Veeam software is the direct cost savings. Businesses that transition to Veeam save an average of $50,000 annually while improving backup performance and minimizing downtime. Veeam achieves resource efficiency by delivering availability, reducing reactive backup and replication activities, allowing you to focus on business growth. Two out of three customers spend 35% less time managing their infrastructure and environments, freeing up valuable time for important tasks.
2. Agentless Approach: Veeam eliminates the need for agents, resulting in cost savings on hardware and administration. Instead of installing backup agents on each virtual machine, Veeam reduces costs by minimizing software licensing, bandwidth usage, and component acquisition. Its centralized management approach simplifies administration, enabling administrators to control every virtual machine from a single point. By leveraging agent-based backup across your virtual machines, your business gains flexibility, scalability, and agility—essential ingredients for success in the modern era.
3. Seamless Integration: Legacy physical backup tools often take months to provide support for new VMware and Hyper-V releases. Veeam, on the other hand, is specifically built for virtualization and can quickly adapt to changes, seamlessly integrating with your hypervisor. It supports both VMware and Hyper-V on a single console and infrastructure. Moreover, you can easily move licenses between the two platforms without changing your agreement.
4. Instant File Recovery: Recovering files instantly from image-based backups can be challenging. To address this issue, Veeam developed Instant File Recovery (IFLR), allowing administrators to restore guest files from compressed and deduplicated backups without the need to restore an entire machine.
5. Instant VM Recovery: With its patented breakthrough technology, Veeam eliminates the time-consuming process of extracting and copying backups. Instead, you can instantly start a virtual machine from the backup. If your VM goes down for any reason, you can restart it on any host. Depending on the method used, full recovery can occur in the background without impacting users or your business.
6. Simplified Off-site Backups: Maintaining data for your disaster recovery site can be challenging. Veeam addresses this issue by offering flexibility through built-in WAN Acceleration. This technology allows Veeam to determine which data blocks are present and which ones need to be sent in the backup. Veeam Acceleration includes global caching, variable length data fingerprinting, and traffic compression, making it 50 times faster than a standard file copy.
7. Reliability: No more sleepless nights worrying about backup and replica testing. Veeam automates these processes, ensuring 100% testing coverage on all your workloads. This feature, called Aware, helps 91% of users meet their recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs), surpassing the performance of previous legacy providers, who only achieved a 69% success rate.
8. Designed for the Virtual World: Veeam doesn’t just tolerate virtual environments; it embraces them. Navigating Veeam’s interface is easy and intuitive compared to physical backup tools. It’s as if Veeam was specifically designed for virtualization.
9. Veeam is the Future: With a growth rate of 4,000 new customers per month and consistent recognition by Forbes Cloud 100, Veeam is considered a pioneer in the backup sector. Over the past 12 months, more than 50,000 companies have switched to Veeam because of its proven track record in delivering innovation and capabilities necessary for digital transformation.
10. Super Easy Installation: You might assume that with all this advanced technology, installing Veeam would be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. However, compared to legacy backup systems that require weeks to deploy and costly consultants, Veeam’s backup solution can be installed, configured, and perform a full backup of 25 virtual machines within just 60 minutes.
In summary, Veeam is the ideal choice for businesses operating in virtualized environments. Its cost-saving features, agentless approach, seamless integration, instant recovery options, simplified off-site backups, reliability, virtual-focused design, forward-thinking approach, and ease of installation make it the leading solution for data protection and digital transformation.
