Announcing the move, the firm said the solution aims to modernise enterprises’ data protection strategy, help manage growing data volumes, tackle increasing performance and multi-workload demands, as well as lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) with a flexible cost model.

“As a leader of modern data protection, we’re proud to be a part of Lenovo TruScale to deliver expert-built and managed BaaS and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS),” said John Jester, chief revenue officer at Veeam.

“This new Veeam and Lenovo solution will help enterprises reduce the complexity of modernising their data protection strategy from legacy solutions and ensure confidence in the protection of their data. 

“They can focus on what matters most – their customers, innovation, and strategic initiatives to propel their business forward.”

The new collaboration builds on the companies’ existing relationship, which has already seen the pair offer intelligent data management solutions for Lenovo software-defined infrastructures since 2020.  

This enterprise-level data protection now combines Lenovo ThinkSystem Servers and its DE and DM storage series with Veeam’s backup and replication functionality to maximise availability and simplicity for customers. 

Optimised for daily IT requirements, the offering promises reliable recovery and reduced management time, digital resiliency for rapid recoveries, data sovereignty, as well as protection for the data centre, edge, and cloud

General availability of Lenovo TruScale backup as a service with Veeam is expected to arrive in 2023.

“Lenovo TruScale delivers the devices, infrastructure, services and solutions, from pocket to cloud, that our customers need, with the simplicity and flexibility of a scalable consumption model,” said Dale Aultman, VP and GM, TruScale and managed services, solutions, and services group at Lenovo. 

“Veeam is the first data protection partner being added to TruScale for data management portfolio, allowing customers to control their data while letting Lenovo manage the infrastructure. This partnership provides customers with robust and reliable data protection and data loss prevention, future-proofing their businesses as they digitalise.”
