Veeam Software announced the NEW Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO) v3 and DR Pack, which provides businesses up to 80% cost savings while immediately receiving a purpose-built disaster recovery (DR) planning and compliance solution for ALL workloads, dramatically simplifying and improving DR and business continuity by eliminating the need for difficult upfront decision making around what workloads not to protect.
Danny Allan, CTO and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam said “Automating manually intensive processes and driving greater business value by unlocking the potential of otherwise dormant data is key to a more agile business. VAO v3 provides intelligent orchestration and testing for business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) and migration operations, using our advanced recovery technology to eliminate the otherwise manual, time-consuming and repeatable processes for necessary DR and migration planning.”
“And with the NEW DR Pack, we are changing the game for enterprise-grade DR by delivering orchestration and automation capabilities at a price point that is unheard of in this market. In today’s world, all data is essential and the DR Pack will enable businesses to simply and reliably extend DR planning beyond what’s historically been deemed the most essential workloads to now include all workloads.” Allan added.
This new release brings full recovery orchestration support for NetApp ONTAP snapshots, enabling users to reliably ensure the continuity of their IT services at any scale through extensible recovery orchestration from Veeam-powered backups and replicas and array-based replication. VAO v3 offers a unique range of capabilities that can help businesses to achieve necessary levels of DR planning and compliance by automatically testing, dynamically documenting and executing disaster recovery plans in as little as 1-click, from single applications to entire sites.
New VAO v3 adds additional capabilities to offer extensible recovery orchestration from array-based replication for all NetApp ONTAP customers. This new feature, Storage Orchestration Plans, will enable customers to orchestrate failover on NetApp ONTAP storage to a secondary recovery site, whether it be a DR site or a new datacenter in the case of datacenter migration.
VAO enables Veeam and NetApp ONTAP users get near-zero RTOs and RPOs for all applications and data with full recovery orchestration support for NetApp ONTAP snapshots as well as Veeam-powered backups and replicas.
The new VAO eliminates manual, expensive processes with comprehensive one-click orchestration and automation for DR and migrations. And, it constantly validates recoverability and compliance of DR plans with fully automated, non-disruptive testing and documentation.
In addition, VAO v3 makes necessary DR planning accessible for all workloads with a new DR Pack offer ideal for current users of Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Availability Suite, immediately providing a purpose-built DR planning and compliance solution. General availability is expected within the next 30 days.
