March 4, 2024 0 By David

Veeam Software announced the new Veeam Data Cloud, which is built on Microsoft Azure and delivers the confidence and reliability of the industry’s leading platform with the ease and accessibility of a cloud service. Veeam Data Cloud provides backup-as-a-service (BaaS) for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure, enabling radical resilience and leveraging powerful data protection and security technology within a simple, seamless user experience.

“According to the Veeam Data Protection Trends Report 2024, 88% of enterprises were either very likely or almost certain to use a Backup as-a-Service (BaaS) or Disaster Recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS) for at least some of their production servers,” said Anand Eswaran CEO at Veeam. “As the #1 global provider of data protection and ransomware recovery and the leader in backup for Microsoft 365, we’re bringing those trusted capabilities – for Microsoft 365 and for Microsoft Azure – and delivering them as-a-service. These new as-a-service offerings, which are offered through the Veeam Data Platform, give companies the option of simplifying the management and administration of their backup operations with all the cyber resiliency and reliability of Veeam technology.”

The cloud native design of the Veeam Data Cloud and the compatible data platform of Microsoft Azure, provides the best protection for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure data, instantly ready out-of-the-box with policy-driven simplicity. The architecture is built on Zero Trust principles and leverages Azure Blob Storage isolated from production environments, is continuously versioned and maintained, and keeps backups safe, secure, and ready for fast recovery. This all-in-one service includes backup software, infrastructure, and storage, which keeps costs low and predictable while simplifying management.

“Veeam has always been a leader when it comes to building great technology,” said John Annand, Principal Research Director at Info-Tech Research Group. “IT professionals with years of experience and training have found Veeam products easy to configure for their on-premises environments. Veeam Data Cloud alleviates the need to find sought-after experienced professionals to get full value out of it, enabling those experienced professionals to delegate and focus on other tasks. Veeam Data Cloud delivers the cyber resiliency and data protection wherever business needs dictate a workload should be put, rather than forcing all workloads to conform to one single safe haven.”
