VEEAM AVAILABILITY ORCHESTRATOR
A Multi-Hypervisor Disaster Recovery Orchestration Engine that Enables Enterprises to Easily Execute, Test, and Document Disaster Recovery Plans
Data protection and disaster recovery (DR) are key areas for improving availability as unplanned IT outages cost the average organization US$16 million a year. Understanding that, Veeam Software recently released the Veeam Availability Orchestrator.
“Well-orchestrated and tested DR plans continue to remain one of the primary challenges facing CIOs. While many enterprises have plans in place, they are complex and cumbersome, which means they are often unreliable and difficult to execute, as well as untested and outdated. This puts compliance and enterprise availability at risk. The new Veeam Availability Orchestrator continues our mission to enable enterprises to achieve 24/7/365 availability. It enables modern SLAs for data and application recovery to be met, reduces costs, increases reliability by eliminating manual processes, all while satisfying compliance requirements,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam Software.
Veeam Availability Orchestrator provides orchestration of Veeam backups and replicas through a defined disaster recovery plan, non-disruptive testing, automated documenting, updating, and reporting. This combination of capabilities helps enterprise customers to ensure data and application availability, maintain reliability, reduce costs of manual processes, and satisfy compliance requirements.
It solves current issues with DR plans by providing enterprises with a multi-hypervisor DR orchestration engine for Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam Availability Orchestrator will be available later this year. It is designed to work with Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication, and licensed per virtual machine (VM). Customers are required to own an Enterprise Plus license for either Veeam Availability Suite or Veeam Backup & Replication.
