Veeam Software has announced a NEW Veeam Backup for Amazon Web Services (AWS), and an Industry-first built-in Cloud Backup Cost Estimator tool. Veeam Backup for AWS is available in both free and paid versions in AWS Marketplace. The product is also integrated with Veeam Backup & Replication, allowing Veeam users to manage all of their data, be it cloud, virtual or physical, within the same platform. Veeam will demonstrate the new solution for the first time at AWS re:Invent 2019 in Las Vegas.
This new solution makes it easier for customers and cloud service providers to natively protect, manage and recover their AWS workloads. Veeam provides the flexibility to store and recover data in the same cloud (cross-region or cross-account), on-premises, or in any other Veeam-supported environment – whether VMware V-Sphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Nutanix AHV.
“Protecting data is not only essential to business continuity, but also to maintaining competitive advantage, complying with regulations, and maintaining brand reputation. While the cloud holds the promise of significant business benefits, IT decision-makers must still take direct action to protect critical data and enable business continuity in the event of an outage, disaster or cyber-attack.,” said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Veeam.
“Veeam’s latest cloud-native solution, Veeam Backup for AWS, available as a point solution in AWS Marketplace as well as now integrated into Veeam Backup & Replication, not only strengthens our commitment to be a leader in Cloud Data Management, but extends Veeam-powered data protection to AWS customers, making it easy for customers to procure and entitle the solution using the same APIs and subscription model used for other software.” said Timashev.
Ease of use is built into the NEW Veeam Backup for AWS with turn-key deployment via AWS Marketplace, while powerful recovery capabilities are also delivered with features like file-level recovery for native snapshots and Veeam backups. An industry-first built-in tool, Cloud Backup Cost Estimator is designed to provide customers with greater cost controls and savings by simulating policy charges to avoid excessive costs before they start their backups.
For Veeam customers, integration with Veeam Backup & Replication will enable them to take control of their cloud data by protecting and managing AWS backups alongside their other cloud, virtual and physical data. Additional benefits include AWS-Native Backup and Powerful Recovery, Hybrid Mobility, Lower Management Costs and Cloud-ready Portable Licensing.
Veeam Backup for AWS will be available from December 2019 in AWS Marketplace.
