Veeam Software has partnered with Microsoft to launch yesterday its Veeam Cloud Connect within the Azure Marketplace.
According to the software company's media statement, Veeam Cloud Connect is available as a pre-configured Microsoft Azure Certified for Virtual Machines solution, which service providers can use with Microsoft Azure to offer cloud repositories for Veeam availability solutions and services. With just a few clicks, service providers have an Azure-based solution for managing and moving backups off site to the cloud.
"This collaboration brings together solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center with a world-class cloud infrastructure," said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. "It's yet another demonstration of Veeam's commitment to enabling its partners to deliver the next-generation cloud services customers are demanding. As an Azure Certified solution, Veeam Cloud Connect provides the thousands of Veeam and Microsoft partners with a fast path to expand their cloud-based services."
Veeam Cloud Connect will also support Azure for Veeam partners who are building Veeam availability services on their own and need the on-demand scalability and capacity to help grow their business.
Part of the new Veeam Availability Suite v8, Veeam Cloud Connect gives its customers a fully integrated, secure and efficient means to move backups to an offsite backup repository managed by the service provider of their choice, which enables them to avoid an upfront capital investment in their own offsite infrastructure.
Additionally, Veeam claimed that this solution is so simple to set up that a service provider can offer offsite backup services to customers in less than 10 minutes using the service provider's own cloud infrastructure or public clouds.
"Both customers and service providers are looking for cloud infrastructure and solutions they can trust," said Garth Fort, General Manager of Enterprise Partners, Microsoft. "Veeam Cloud Connect and its availability from the Azure Marketplace gives service providers the ability to provide Veeam backup hosting services seamlessly, allowing private networks and the public cloud to work as one."
