DUBAI, UAE, 4TH February, 2021: Veeam Software, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management, today announced its expansion of public cloud support with the general availability of NEW Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform – completing Veeam’s support for all three major public cloud providers. With the majority of organisations now running hybrid or multi-cloud environments and 72% of those using public cloud currently having more than one vendor in place, Google Cloud is one of the top five-largest public cloud infrastructure providers worldwide. With this new offering, Veeam delivers a single platform to protect, secure and manage all applications and data – cloud, virtual and physical – enabling organisations to accelerate hybrid-cloud adoption.
“Veeam recognises the strategic importance of the cloud to our 400,000+ global customers and we are committed to providing broad platform support and choice”, said Danny Allan, chief technology officer and senior vice president of product strategy at Veeam. “As we now expand public cloud support even further with the general availability of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform, we have simultaneously expanded our partnership with Google Cloud, enabling Veeam to jointly engage customers through the Google Cloud Marketplace. Additionally, with Veeam recently acquiring Kasten, customers can also acquire Kasten’s K10 data management platform, purpose-built for Kubernetes, through the Google Cloud Marketplace”.
Veeam helps customers address security and data protection responsibilities by delivering Google Cloud backup and recovery to protect and secure applications and data, utilising and automating Google Cloud-native technologies to quickly and reliably overcome any cloud data loss.
New functionality of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform includes:
- Google Cloud-Native: Simple yet powerful web UI, deployable from the Google Cloud Marketplace starts protecting data in minutes; Policy-Based Automation of Google Cloud-native snapshots for fast and frequent recovery points, and rapid full- and file-level recovery options to overcome any cloud data loss.
- Cost Optimisation Industry-first cost calculation to align service-level objectives (SLOs) with budgets while avoiding cloud overspend; back up to Google Cloud object storage for cost-effective long-term retention and compliance.
- Security: Overcome security threats including ransomware as well as insider threats by isolating backup data from production (cross-project/cross-region); layered security to protect against brute force attacks with multi-factor authentication (MFA).
- Hybrid-Ready: Portable data format and integration with Veeam Backup & Replication external repositories enables easy recovery outside of Google Cloud; utilises flexible Veeam Universal Licensing (VUL) to simplify license management and enable Cloud Mobility.
