Veeam Backup for AWS, a new point solution to backup AWS to AWS with Veeam recovery capabilities, will be available exclusively through AWS Marketplace. Veeam Backup for AWS is available in AWS Marketplace in both free and paid versions.
The new backup and recovery solution can be integrated with Veeam’s flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication, allowing Veeam users to manage all of their data, be it cloud, virtual or physical, within the same platform.
Designed specifically for AWS, this new Veeam Backup for AWS solution would make it easier for customers and cloud service providers (CSPs) to natively protect, manage and recover their AWS workloads.
“Protecting data is not only essential to business continuity, but also to maintaining competitive advantage, complying with regulations, and maintaining brand reputation. While the cloud holds the promise of significant business benefits, IT decision makers must still take direct action to protect critical data and enable business continuity in the event of an outage, disaster or cyber-attack,” said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Veeam. “Veeam’s latest cloud-native solution, Veeam Backup for AWS, available as a point solution in AWS Marketplace as well as now integrated into Veeam Backup & Replication, not only strengthens our commitment to be a leader in Cloud Data Management, but extends Veeam-powered data protection to AWS customers, making it easy for customers to procure and entitle the solution using the same APIs and subscription model used for other software.”
For Veeam customers, integration with Veeam Backup & Replication will enable them to take control of their cloud data by protecting and managing AWS backups alongside their other cloud, virtual and physical data. Additional benefits would include:
- AWS-Native Backup and Powerful Recovery – The same trusted solution for on-premises backup now protects AWS workloads. Built for cloud-native workloads with support for native snapshots and Veeam backups. Cost-optimized for long-term data retention in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
- Hybrid Mobility – Flexible with no cloud lock-in, restore or migrate any on-premises workloads directly to AWS and restore files or data from AWS back to on-premises or any other Veeam-supported environment (ex. VMware V-Sphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV).
- Lower Management Costs – Helps customers to manage, backup, and recover all workloads from a single interface.
- Cloud-ready Portable Licensing – Move workloads across cloud environments with a Veeam Universal license (VUL) that flexibly follows your workload.
General availability of Veeam Backup for AWS in AWS Marketplace is targeted for December 2019. Customers can get started by downloading the free edition, limited to backup of 10 instances here.
