Veeam and SwiftStack
Keep up with the hyper-growth of data with cost-effective cloud-native object storage

The hyper-growth of data is causing hyper-growth of backup data that needs to be managed, stored, recovered, and utilized. Combine that with compliance requirements demanding longer-term data retention–traditional data storage architectures are failing. To address this need, the storage infrastructure needs to easily scale and automatically protect data against a major disaster, all while meeting constrained IT budgets.

With the modern architecture of Veeam Cloud Tier, more data can be stored on cost-effective and easy-to-operate cloud storage, resulting in up to 10x savings in storage infrastructure!
