Veeam & HP Develop ‘Explorer for SAN Snapshots’

The new capability provides SMB users of Veeam’s Backup & Replication product with affordable restore capabilities.

Backup, replication, and virtualization management solutions developer Veeam Software has enhanced its line of VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V support products with new restore capabilities for Veeam Backup & Replication.

Veeam & HP Develop 'Explorer for SAN Snapshots'Developed in conjunction with HP, Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots enables IT administrators to recover virtual machines (VMs) and their data directly from HP LeftHand and HP StoreVirtual VSA snapshots.

The new capability enables admins to quickly restore any or all of a VM directly from SAN snapshots, which can be taken throughout the day with very little impact on production systems. This enables short recovery point objectives (RPOs) for the most common recovery scenarios: users accidentally deleting data, scripts accidentally corrupting data, and system updates gone wrong.

“We worked with HP to develop Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots,” says Veeam president Ratmir Timashev. “Veeam’s new capability enables SMB customers to recover quickly from daily disasters using SAN snapshots they already have in place without additional cost.” †

Veeam’s approach is to leverage SAN snapshots as part of a comprehensive backup and recovery strategy, where SAN snapshots and image-level backups complement each other. Rather than converting SAN snapshots to backups, Veeam uses them in their native form.

Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots will be demoed Aug. 26 through Aug. 29 at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco. The new feature will be generally available in Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5, which is scheduled for release in Q4 2012.

The feature will be free and included in all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication, including Veeam Backup Free Edition.
