We had a great time this week with the Veeam team, their customers, and partners in Miami at VeeamON! I started my career in the backup and recovery space in 1999 and it’s exciting to see the evolution that’s taken place. Many of the capabilities we dreamed about a few decades ago are now real—like automatic offsite protection, near-instant recoveries, seamless repository scalability, elimination of cold/offline storage, and the ability to extract value from secondary copies of data.
 
I have some cool news to pass on about our solution for Veeam that we announced earlier this week:
  1. Veeam Ready Object qualification – the Veeam Ready Object program launched last week and we’re excited to be on the inaugural qualification list. The testing involved both functional and rigorous performance testing to ensure this storage solution for Veeam Cloud Tier is ready for production deployments.
  2. SwiftStack Software Appliance with 1click Application Profile for Veeam – a few weeks ago, we announced the SwiftStack Software Appliance as a new deployment option that automates the installation, configuration, and ongoing management of a SwiftStack cluster to make getting up-and-running even easier. Part of this new appliance are Application Profiles, which automatically configure and tune the storage cluster for specific applications. The first two applications supported are Splunk and Veeam.
 
Veeam also unveiled enhancements coming to Cloud Tier which are exciting and further evolve the scale-out architecture. Check out our solution for Veeam at swiftstack.com/veeam and for other backup platforms at swiftstack.com/backup. If you would ever like to discuss options to help scale your backup and recovery solution while simplifying and driving out unnecessary cost at the same time, please feel free to reach out to me.
