Veeam, a leader in Intelligent Data Management, has extended its partnership with Cisco to deliver Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform on Cisco HyperFlex.
Veeam is known for its Availability for the Always-On Enterprise solution which helps organizations meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO) for any data, application or cloud. Its Hyper-Availability Platform helps enterprises manage data, make it smarter and self-governing, and ensure its availability across any application and cloud infrastructure.
On the other hand, the Cisco HyperFlex is a highly resilient data management platform for hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) that delivers seamless scalability, ease of data management, and support for multi-cloud environments.
When enterprises update the complex legacy data protection solutions to multi-cloud solutions, they turn to industry leaders who provide modern data protection solutions. The enterprises seek the solutions which are reliable, scalable, easy to manage, and support multi-site and multi-cloud environments.
Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform on Cisco HyperFlex aims to help enterprises meet all their demands with one solution. Veeam said that its expanded collaboration with Cisco is aimed to meet customer demand for even more innovative ways to modernize their datacenters.
“Our partnership with Cisco has only continued to strengthen and expand. We are Cisco’s ISV Partner of the Year and have had strong market success winning together, and now we are collaborating on this new solution to meet customer demand for even more innovative ways to modernize their data centers,” said Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President at Veeam.
“Veeam Availability on Cisco HyperFlex responds to feedback from large enterprise customers and service provider partners who have asked for additional integrated solutions with Cisco. Customers will have the benefit of purchasing from one vendor as this solution will be offered directly from Cisco. We look forward to working closely with the Cisco team to serve large IT environments that are seeking better ways to ensure the resiliency of their IT systems.”
The joint solution will provide high-availability for virtual, physical and cloud workloads, and seamless scalability and reduced operational costs. It will further simplify and optimize the deployments and reduce the risks.
“As the data protection market evolves to more software defined and scale-out, the need for a scalable Enterprise-ready platform and feature rich software stack is critical to ensure customer success,” said Siva Sivakumar, Sr. Director of Data Center Solutions at Cisco.
“Veeam’s intelligent data management capabilities combined with the industry-leading performance, flexibility and easy deployment of Cisco HyperFlex provide the perfect solution to address this need. Our joint goal is to continue expanding the solution with new capabilities that address modern IT recovery, retention and resiliency requirements.”
Veeam Availability on Cisco HyperFlex will be generally available in the fourth quarter this year via Cisco, backed by Cisco Solution Support.
