VeeamON 2021: Veeam Showed Its Roadmap to 2021

It showcased innovations around upcoming updates to its platform. Regarding the second half of 2021, it demonstrated key innovations of cloud-native solutions for AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Microsoft Office 365 and the first Kasten K10 integration for Kubernetes within Veeam Platform.

Veeam today showcased a glimpse into its roadmap through 2021 and how the company will continue to provide its customers with the most advanced data protection across all environments – cloud, virtual, SaaS, Kubernetes and physical.

“Over the past 18 months, Veeam enjoyed its most prolific product launch period, bringing to market more than 20 new offerings such as Veeam V10 and V11, Veeam Backup for Google Cloud, updates for Veeam Backupfor Microsoft Azure, AWS & Microsoft Office 365 and many, many more,” said Danny Allan, CTO & SVP, Product Strategy at Veeam. “We are continually innovating and know customers are looking to protect their data across multi-cloud environments; with Veeam’s single platform we are helping our customers ensure that every piece of data, every workload is safe, secure and easily recoverable no matter where they reside.  We are proud of our success, and that we are now #2 in the market, and we know that this is just the tip of the iceberg.”

Expanded cloud-native capabilities for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud

Veeam’s single platform for protecting and managing resources in multi-cloud environments, including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, delivers cloud mobility to backup, recover and migrate workloads across any environment, ensuring up to 50X lower costs when natively protecting cloud workloads.

Veeam Platform gains cloud-native backup and recovery

Veeam now provides cloud-native support for the three leading hyperscale public clouds – AWS, Azure and Google Cloud – under a single platform across hybrid-/multi-cloud environments. This also includes Cloud Mobility for backup, recovery and migration across on-premises and public clouds.

Lowest cost long-term retention and archive for native backup of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud:

Veeam unveiled support for archive object storage for all three leading hyperscale public cloud providers.

-AWS = Amazon S3 Glacier y Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive
-Azure = Azure Archive Storage
-Google Cloud = Archive Cloud Storage

Expanded support for cloud-native backup and recovery

-AWS = Amazon EFS (Elastic File System)
-Azure = Azure SQL

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v6 will deliver NEW Self-Service Portal and integration to Azure Archive and AWS S3 Glacier

In this way, it promises to increase the ROI for enterprises and service providers by lowering the load on IT departments (thereby enabling them to focus on other tasks) and puts recovery in the hands of the user. This helps organizations divide work across teams, improves the way restores are handled and saves the time and effort of building their own portals, providing faster access to critical data.

New Office 365 Backup Copy to Azure Archive and AWS Amazon S3 Glacier

For years there has been a debate on how many Office 365 copies are needed, one backup or following industry backup best practices with a backup copy.  Now with v6, customers can do either and quickly create secondary copies directly from object storage to Azure Archive, Amazon S3 Glacier and Glacier Deep Archive, with different retention period options. Now users can more effectively achieve the 3-2-1 data protection rule providing additional confidence in restoring Office 365 data.

Veeam support for Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) backup

Veeam announces support for our fourth hypervisor in response to customer demands from key verticals, large enterprises, and service providers. It also delivers powerful data protection capabilities for hyper-converged infrastructure with Red Hat to Veeam Backup & Replication: Modern data protection for Red Hat Virtualization; Reduced management complexity delivered by standardizing on Veeam’s control plane; and improved storage usage delivered via intelligent Veeam storage repositories.

In addition, it offers agentless image-level backup and recovery of RHV VMs; and efficient data protection that leverages Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for greater efficiency; as well as allowing RHV backups to be centralized and managed in Veeam backup repositories.

Veeam repository integration for Kasten K10 for Kubernetes

Veeam expands Kubernetes data protection services to help containerized product development and support DevOps and PlatformOps.

With Kasten K10 integration, it enables customers to write to the many Veeam storage repositories for centralized data management, which includes disk, solid state, object storage, cloud, and even tape.

Additionally, it offers options to store Kubernetes backups in the cloud, on premise and in ransomware-proof, immutable locations.

It also allows Kasten workloads to be included in automated backup data lifecycle management for complete policy management.

“With these demonstrations, we are upping the ante for Modern Data Protection, ensuring our customers can protect ALL workloads across ALL environments; Veeam continues to set the standard for the industry,” added Allan. “Veeam has proven itself to be in tune with customer needs – the feedback we have received for V11 proves that – and I am confident with these new solutions coming to market later this year, we’ll yet again deliver on what our 400,000+ customers require and help them drive their digital transformation journeys.”
