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!

In this Cloud Tier example, data is stored on the performance tier (drives connected to Veeam servers) for 30 days, where then the data is moved off to the capacity tier (SwiftStack) for as long as the data needs to be retained.

The Complete Picture – Cisco + Veeam + SwiftStack

SwiftStack and Veeam are both proud Cisco Preferred Solution partners and leverage Cisco HyperFlex and UCS servers to create an optimized and seamless end-to-end data protection solution.

When your data protection requirements scale beyond a few hundred terabytes and you desire policy-drive, touchless offsite protection, use Cloud Tier to intelligently move data to SwiftStack cloud storage.

Veeam Cloud Tier + SwiftStack Highlights:

  • Save up to 10x on data retention costs
  • Always remain aligned with compliance requirements
  • Data always remains active and available for use
  • Software-only storage design, providing complete hardware flexibility
  • Seamlessly scale-out from 100s of TB to 10s of PB
  • Simplify data storage across a single datacenter, multiple regions, and multiple clouds
  • Further simplify your storage infrastructure by expanding the same SwiftStack cluster for other uses cases


SwiftStack is free to try in your own environment. All you need is an available Intel-based server or virtual machine running Linux to get started.
