News : Veeam Software Announces Veeam Cloud Connect
Baar, Switzerland, June 23, 2014 -- Veeam Software, provider of solutions that deliver availability for the Modern Data Center, announced Veeam Cloud Connect, part of the new Veeam Availability Suite v8, which will be generally available in Q3, 2014.
The new functionality gives service providers a direct pipeline to benefit from the Veeam ecosystem. Veeam customers get a fully integrated, secure and efficient means to move backups to an offsite backup repository managed by the service provider of their choice.
"To ensure complete data centre availability in the event of any disaster, Veeam recommends that IT follow the 3-2-1 rule: three copies of data on two different kinds of media, one of which is offsite," said Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO of Veeam. "Veeam Cloud Connect enables IT to fulfil the offsite requirement without having to invest in offsite infrastructure or management, and presents new opportunities for service providers and Veeam resellers to build recurring revenue, offer additional services and establish relationships with new customers."
"We have provided offsite backup and disaster recovery for Veeam customers since 2011," said Matthew Chesterton, President of OffsiteDataSync, a Rochester, New York-based cloud solutions company and a Gold Veeam Cloud Provider. "By supporting multi-tenancy and eliminating the need for VPN connections, Veeam Cloud Connect makes it easier to offer these services at scale. Our hosting and Veeam expertise, along with the new Cloud Connect functionality and Veeam's huge presence in the market, will allow us to quickly acquire new customers, resulting in additional growth of our company's overall profitability."
