Evolve IP, a cloud services company delivering Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), contact centers, disaster recovery, virtual desktops, IP phone systems / unified communication (UC) solutions, and more, has been awarded Platinum status in the Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) program. This indicates Evolve IP’s ability to deliver Veeam-powered availability services as part of its suite of Evolve IP Disaster Recovery (DR) services.
Veeam provides solutions that deliver ‘Availability for the Always-On Enterprise,’ helping organizations meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO) “of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data.” The recognition from Veeam would distinguish Evolve IP and its comprehensive suite of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Business Continuity solutions.
“We are very pleased to have been awarded Platinum partner status by Veeam and look forward to growing our already strong relationship,” said Scott Kinka, Chief Technology and Product Officer of Evolve IP. “Evolve IP is unique in our ability to provide disaster recovery and business continuity options across both cloud computing and cloud communications technologies, and having the right partners is one of the keys to success. Veeam has become an integral part of our pioneering DRaaS suite, and we’re excited about the opportunities that the relationship will bring forward in healthcare, finance and other industries that require compliance-driven, highly-reliable disaster recovery.”
Veeam is a critical component of Evolve IP’s cloud infrastructure and managed services portfolio, which supports a range of recovery objectives and needs and includes:
- DR with Veeam Cloud Connect– A fully integrated way to backup, replicate and restore from Evolve IP’s cloud using Veeam Cloud Connect. DRaaS VE-CC would ensure the availability of mission-critical applications without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining a disaster recovery (DR) site. The solution would provide fully integrated, fast, secured and compliant cloud-based DR through The Evolve IP Compliance Cloud.
- Backup as a Service (BaaS) – For customers utilizing Evolve IP’s virtual data center, Veeam-driven Backup-as-a-Service would add security and convenience, and feature the built-in control and resiliency of an enterprise-grade computing environment, the scalability and flexibility of a private cloud, and a team of Evolve IP experts to help setup, monitor, manage, configure and test backups.
- Managed Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) – Managed DRaaS would enable Veeam customers to outsource the run book development, setup, configuration, testing and management of their Evolve IP disaster recovery solution. In addition to ongoing monitoring and scheduled testing, Evolve IP support is available 24x7x365 to manage the failover process when a disaster is declared.
“We are excited to recognize the excellence that Evolve IP brings to the DRaaS market, and now as a Veeam Platinum Partner,” said Matt Kalmenson, Vice President, Cloud and Service Provider Sales, North America, Veeam. “I expect that our joint backup and replication initiatives within the market will help both organizations expand our market presence across North America.”
