Veeam Software has showcased a glimpse into its roadmap through 2021 and how the company will continue to provide its customers with the most advanced data protection across all environments – cloud, virtual, SaaS, Kubernetes and physical.
At VeeamON 2021, the leading event to Accelerate Your Data Protection Strategy, Veeam provided a select preview of the future, showcasing innovations around upcoming updates to its single platform to protect and manage ALL workloads. Due in the second half of 2021, Veeam demonstrated key innovations of cloud-native solutions for AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Microsoft Office 365 and the first integration of Kasten K10 for Kubernetes into Veeam Platform.
Over the past 18 months, Veeam enjoyed its most prolific product launch period, bringing to market more than 20 new offerings such as Veeam V10 and V11, Veeam Backup for Google Cloud, updates for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, AWS & Microsoft Office 365 and many, many more,” said Danny Allan, CTO & SVP, Product Strategy at Veeam.
“We are continually innovating and know customers are looking to protect their data across multi-cloud environments; with Veeam’s single platform we are helping our customers ensure that every piece of data, every workload is safe, secure and easily recoverable no matter where they reside. We are proud of our success, and that we are now #2 in the market, and we know that this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Expanded cloud-native capabilities for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud
Veeam’s single platform for protecting and managing resources in multi-cloud environments, including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, delivers cloud mobility to backup, recover and migrate workloads across any environment, ensuring up to 50X lower costs when natively protecting cloud workloads.
Veeam Platform gains cloud-native backup and recovery
Veeam now provides cloud-native support for the three leading hyperscale public clouds – AWS, Azure and Google Cloud – under a single platform across hybrid-/multi-cloud environments. This also includes Cloud Mobility for backup, recovery and migration across on-premises and public clouds.
Lowest cost long-term retention and archive for native backup of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud
Veeam unveiled support for archive object storage for all three leading hyperscale public cloud providers
o AWS = Amazon S3 Glacier and Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive
o Azure = Azure Archive Storage
o Google Cloud = Archive Cloud Storage
Expanded support for cloud-native backup and recovery
o AWS = Amazon EFS (Elastic File System)
o Azure = Azure SQL
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v6 will deliver NEW Self-Service Portal and integration to Azure Archive and AWS S3 Glacier
- NEW Self-Service Portal increases the ROI for enterprises and service providers by lowering the load on IT departments (thereby enabling them to focus on other tasks) and puts recovery in the hands of the user. This helps organizations divide work across teams, improves the way restores are handled and saves the time and effort of building their own portals, providing faster access to critical data.
- NEW Office 365 Backup Copy to Azure Archive and AWS Amazon S3 Glacier: For years there has been a debate on how many Office 365 copies are needed, one backup or following industry backup best practices with a backup copy. Now with v6, customers can do either and quickly create secondary copies directly from object storage to Azure Archive, Amazon S3 Glacier and Glacier Deep Archive, with different retention period options. Now users can more effectively achieve the 3-2-1 data protection rule providing additional confidence in restoring Office 365 data.

“With these demonstrations [at VeeamON], we are upping the ante for Modern Data Protection, ensuring our customers can protect ALL workloads across ALL environments; Veeam continues to set the standard for the industry,” added Allan. “Veeam has proven itself to be in tune with customer needs – the feedback we have received for V11 proves that – and I am confident with these new solutions coming to market later this year, we’ll yet again deliver on what our 400,000+ customers require and help them drive their digital transformation journeys.”
