Veeam introduces storage offering in Availability Suite v9

The addition will reduce the cost of ownership of backup storage and hardware costs


Veeam has announced the latest edition of its Availability Suite, which adds in enhanced storage options that the company says will reduce the cost of ownership thanks to lower hardware costs.

Jason Buffington, Senior Data Protection Analyst at ESG explained the production and protection storage volumes market is growing by around 40 per cent year-on-year and it's, therefore, important for vendors like Veeam to adapt their products to meet this demand.

"The irony is that IT is being asked to increase their availability and agility to recover but aren't even able to maintain the status quo with legacy approaches to backup, in part due to storage requirements," he explained.

Additionally, companies are demanding recovery time and point objectives of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data, meaning optimum availability is key for any company looking to grow their data plans.

Veeam's Availability Suite v9 features the Veeam Unlimited Scale-out Backup Repository, offering simplified backup storage management with a modular approach, allowing organisations to add additional storage devices and managing the capacity as demand requires.

Veeam said by using the space more efficiently, Veeam Unlimited Scale-out Backup Repository can increase the capacity of existing storage by at least 30 per cent.

"The contradiction between the need to raise IT resiliency and agility while trying to reduce storage burdens is adding complexity and burden to many folks' IT infrastructures," Buffington added.

"Veeam's new Unlimited Scale-out Backup Repository should help alleviate those burdens by simplifying backup target storage, which ought to further ease administration while providing flexibility to backup and virtualisation administrators who have more strategic tasks to do than managing their underlying storage pool."
