Veeam Cloud Connect Offers Efficient and Secure Way to Move Backups Off-Site

Veeam Cloud Connect, part of the Veeam Availability Suite v8, allows service providers to set up, manage, and sell hosted backup services for Veeam customers.

Veeam Software’s new Veeam Cloud Connect, part of the new Veeam Availability Suite v8, offers Veeam customers a fully integrated, secure, and efficient means to move backups to an offsite backup repository managed by the service provider of their choice, but without the upfront capital investment of an offsite infrastructure.

“Veeam Cloud Connect enables IT to fulfill 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,” says Ratmir Timashev, president and CEO of Veeam.

Features for Service Providers

Setup of Veeam Cloud Connect requires a single server and provides all the infrastructure management capabilities needed to offer an offsite repository service to Veeam customers.

Pricing has also been tailored for service providers. Instead of an up-front perpetual license, Veeam offers service providers monthly per VM licensing. Additionally, Veeam customers can search for and contact nearby service providers through an integrated Web portal in Veeam Availability Suite v8.

Other features for service providers include:

  • Cloud gateway: Virtualizes all traffic between the customer and the service provider through a single port, creating a way for customers to connect with cloud resources through firewalls.
  • SSL connection: Offering reliable, secure connection over SSL —maintaining VPN infrastructure is no longer necessary.
  • Multi-tenancy: Manage multiple customers, cloud repositories, and cloud gateways from one all-inclusive management and reporting console.
  • Resource management: Allocate storage for each customer, while leveraging built-in reports and alerts to track storage consumption, manage expiration dates, and send automatic renewal reminders.
  • Scale-out architecture: Scale Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure by deploying multiple cloud gateways, and enabling automatic load balancing and high availability.
  • End-to-end encryption: All data is protected in-flight with SSL, and customers can additionally encrypt data at-source (before it leaves their network perimeter), and still get all the benefits of Built-in WAN Acceleration.

New Offsite Options for Veeam Customers

Veeam Cloud Connect enables Veeam customers to send backups offsite to a hosted repository through a SSL connection with no additional Veeam licensing required. Instead, IT can find a service provider they trust to host their offsite backups. IT only pays for what it uses.

Additional features for Veeam customers include:

  • Visibility and control: Access and recover data from hosted backup repositories directly from the Veeam backup console. Track cloud repository consumption and receive reminders for hosted storage renewals.
  • Modern backup architecture: Fully leverage Veeam’s Modern Data Center availability technology, including Backup Copy jobs with Built-in WAN Acceleration, forever incremental backups, and GFS (grandfather-father-son) retention policies.
  • End-to-end encryption: Encrypt data in-transit and at rest in the cloud repository.

Veeam Cloud Connect will be generally available in Q3 of 2014 and showcased at VeeamON: The World’s Premier Data Center Availability Event, October 6–9, 2014, at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV.
