Veeam Software has announced a new solution, Veeam Backup for Amazon Web Services (AWS), which provides cost-effective and secure cloud-native Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) protection.
Veeam Backup for AWS, a point solution to backup AWS to AWS with powerful Veeam recovery capabilities, is available in both free and paid versions in AWS Marketplace.
The product is also now integrated with Veeam’s flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication, allowing Veeam users to manage all of their data, be it cloud, virtual or physical, within the same platform.
Designed specifically for AWS, this new solution makes it even easier for customers and cloud service providers to natively protect, manage and recover their AWS workloads. Veeam provides the flexibility to store the data and recover data in the same cloud (cross-region or cross-account), on-premises, or in any other Veeam-supported environment – whether VMware V-Sphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Nutanix AHV.
“Protecting data is not only essential to business continuity, but also to maintaining competitive advantage, complying with regulations, and maintaining brand reputation. While the cloud holds the promise of significant business benefits, IT decision makers must still take direct action to protect critical data and enable business continuity in the event of an outage, disaster or cyber-attack,” said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Veeam. “Veeam’s latest cloud-native solution, Veeam Backup for AWS, available as a point solution in AWS Marketplace as well as now integrated into Veeam Backup & Replication, not only strengthens our commitment to be a leader in Cloud Data Management, but extends Veeam-powered data protection to AWS customers, making it easy for customers to procure and entitle the solution using the same APIs and subscription model used for other software.”
