Veeam Announces New Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager Support

Reflecting growing customer demand to move data across platforms, Veeam extends the protection of major virtualization platforms with support from Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager in Veeam Data Platform, which already includes VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, Red Hat Virtualization and Red Hat OpenShift.

Veeam Software announced Veeam Data Platform support for host-based backups of virtual machines running on the Oracle Linux KVM hypervisor. With the rapid evolution of virtualization and the cloud, organizations are evaluating the best virtualization platforms for their specific business needs. In response, Veeam is expanding its support for platforms that provide greater freedom of choice for its 450,000 customers. Veeam Data Platform provides data security, data recovery and freedom to backup and use data from anywhere without platform or cloud lock.

«When talking to customers, the issue of data freedom is always high on their list», said John Jester, Veeam’s Chief Revenue Officer. “As the #1 leader in data protection and ransomware recovery, Veeam has always committed to giving customers the choice. That’s why we give you peace of mind across all the platforms and systems you use, from the cloud to on-premises, and often hybrid systems. We don’t just protect your data, we make it easier for you to move as your needs change. The introduction of Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager support further extends our unparalleled freedom of choice in virtualization, allowing businesses to select and migrate to platforms that best suit their needs, while maintaining seamless data management, security and protection».

With this added support for Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager, users can achieve full-scale protection, leveraging all VM and granular recoveries, safe and compliant backup lifecycle management, and more. Veeam Data Platform gives users greater freedom of choice to better adapt to changing business needs for both virtualization and the cloud, including:

  • Cross-platform compatibility: Veeam solution integrates seamlessly with all major virtualization and cloud platforms, including VMware vSphere, VMware Cloud Director, VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts, VMware Cloud on Dell, Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, Microsoft Azure VMware Solution, Amazon AWS, Nutanix AHV, Red Hat Virtualization, Google Cloud, Google Cloud VMware Engine, Oracle Cloud VMware Solution and IBM Cloud, ensuring compatibility in various environments. All this is unlocked with the powerful and portable Veeam Universal License.
  • Data mobility: Businesses can now easily select and migrate from one virtualization platform to one that best fits their specific requirements, without compromising data management capabilities or reliance on a vendor with a fully portable data format.
  • Secure data protection: Veeam’s immutable backup, instant recovery and orchestrated resilience capabilities ensure the security and availability of critical data, regardless of the virtualization platform, protecting against potential threats and disruptions to keep businesses running.
  • Improved efficiency: By streamlining data management processes in heterogeneous virtualized environments, including hybrid cloud, Veeam’s solution improves operational efficiency and reduces the complexity associated with managing multiple platforms.
  • Unified management interface: With Veeam’s centralized management interface, users can efficiently monitor, manage and protect data across multiple virtualization platforms from a single, intuitive dashboard.

It’s bad enough to have to change hypervisor, but having to change data protection solution also adds risk and uncertainty to an already chaotic year. As a leader in Infrastructure and Operations (I&O), it is not enough that the platforms you choose only meet today’s needs, they must also be responsive and flexible to support tomorrow’s unknown needs and data locations», said John Annand, Infrastructure Manager, Info-Tech Research Group. «Veeam for Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager further enables the company to put its workloads where it makes more sense for the business and not where it is easier for I&O to secure and protect your data».

Without the need to learn new tools, acquire new hardware or acquire new licenses, users can spend more time driving business initiatives and less time managing backups. Whether it’s a large global company or a small business that changes hypervisor, adopts a public or hybrid cloud, or expands through cloud environments, virtual and physical, Veeam provides freedom of choice to all organizations seeking transformation in today’s changing virtualization world.
