Today, at Veeam’s sales kickoff event, we’re showing our support for Veeam’s new cloud storage tiering capability, called Veeam Cloud Tier. This is an exciting new set of functionality that allows Veeam’s enterprise users the ability to intelligently and automatically tier data off to S3-compatible object storage.

This new solution will help you keep up with the hyper-growth of data (and backup data), stay in alignment with your compliance requirements, and drastically reduce storage costs. Driving unnecessary costs out of infrastructure, from both capital and operational standpoints, allows you to invest more up the stack so you can extract more value from your data, which is always a good thing.

Realizing the value of cloud storage does not require a wholesale change to your backup and recovery design. You can initially direct just some of your backup jobs to a new scale-out repository with SwiftStack and then migrate more over time.

If you would like to learn more about how SwiftStack can play a beneficial role in your data protection strategy, please feel free to reach out to us. You can also check out our new Veeam page at
