Cloud and Data Management specialist Veeam Software has unveiled a new initiative today to deliver unified solutions providing expanded options for customers: the “with Veeam” programme.
Veeam is partnering with premier enterprise storage vendors to provide customers with comprehensive secondary storage solutions that combine Veeam software with industry-leading storage and HCI infrastructure hardware and management stacks. Solutions have already been announced with ExaGrid and Nutanix.
Veeam has worked closely with its strategic technology alliance partners to provide flexible deployment options for customers that have continually led to tighter levels of integration. Veeam APIs enable our broad partner ecosystem to build complete solutions that are powered by the Veeam Availability Platform, with some partners integrating both primary and secondary storage with Veeam’s market-leading, data-management stack.
The “with Veeam” programme builds on this strategy by providing broader and deeper integration points for partners to easily and rapidly deliver a secondary storage solution as a unified full-stack that is easy-to-procure, -size, -deploy and -manage, providing customers with options for their data-protection needs.
“Our strategy has always been to be open and agnostic by working with a broad ecosystem of partners to better serve our mutual customers’ needs.” said Ratmir Timashev, co-founder and EVP sales and marketing, Veeam.
Timashev noted that the launch of the ‘with Veeam’ programme will take their strategy to new heights to help organisations achieve the levels of data protection, data retention, data availability and data management that their business’s demand.
“Nutanix announced Nutanix Mine with Veeam a couple of weeks ago, and ExaGrid announced ExaGrid Backup with Veeam in April. This is an easy way for partners to build a unified offering with Veeam and we expect to see additional solutions announced in the future,” said Timashev.
