Veeam offers direct snapshot integration with Cisco HyperFlex hyperconverged infrastructure platform.
The Veeam Availability Suite will soon be updated to accommodate direct snapshot integration with the Cisco HyperFlex hyperconverged infrastructure platform – Veeam’s first integration with a hyperconverged storage system.
As a result, Veeam customers will be able to replicate Cisco HyperFlex workloads to another HyperFlex System – or to any other VMware vSphere environment, including Veeam Cloud and Service Providers – by using Veeam’s VM Replication functionality.
In addition, customers will also be able to experience backup speeds that are up to twice as fast (compared to the standard VMware vSphere APIs), and reduced performance impact on production virtual machines during the copy process. Most importantly, the ‘Backups from Storage Snapshots’ feature will allow administrators to perform backups whenever they want, and as often as they want – effectively minimizing a business’ exposure to data loss.
“By combining Veeam’s proven availability solutions with Cisco’s next-generation HyperFlex platform, we can offer customers unmatched data and application availability. This means a business can realize its investment in IT, without the production downtime that stifles its ability to execute and deliver innovative products and services to customers,” said Peter McKay, President and Chief Operating Officer of Veeam.
The Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 2 is expected to go live in Q2 2017.
