Be sure to protect what you’ve virtualized with HPE and Veeam

By Mike Harding

VeeamOn 2018 will soon be here!  In case you haven't heard, the event is taking place in Chicago from May 14 - 16. 

VeeamON #2.jpgI’ve had the pleasure of working with Veeam as a partner at both Nimble Storage and now HPE.  We had fun in the past showing off this alliance and delivering really easy-to-use and popular integrated data protection solutions, especially in the context of the HPE Nimble Storage Secondary Flash Array.

My memories of past VeeamOns center on our launch of the Secondary Flash Array in the joyous humidity of New Orleans.   Others wrote about the happenings at the event, the big takeaways, and key messages such as “putting your backup data to work”, leveraging flash for better performance, and the business value of data availability.

With VeeamOn 2018, you’ll be trading in your beignet and Sazerac for deep dish pizza, but there’s another valuable line-up of hot topics including Hyper-Availability, intelligent data management, orchestration, data security (Ransomware), and of course how to reduce cost.

HPE will be unveiling information on its Next-gen HPE Nimble Storage platform: Storage Class Memory, NVMe Ready, now with Inline always-on dedupe on the Hybrid Flash arrays, and touting an innovative "Store More guarantee."

My current gig is around Virtualization here at HPE.  And there is very strong linkage between what we’re delivering for Virtualized solutions and how they are protected.  Virtualized workloads are best protected by offerings that are optimized for virtualized data.

We’ve delivered new capabilities across the Virtualization portfolio – here are recent VMUG webinars on these updates:

Veeam has been providing Availability for the modern data center since 2006, especially including data protection for VMs.  The integrated Veeam Backup & Replication and HPE storage solution provides multiple capabilities to ensure and manage virtualized environments.  Veeam Explorer brings the ability to recover entire VMs, or granular application items within a VM, from either a backup file or a volume-based storage snapshot.  Veeam Backup from Storage Snapshots accesses the offload processing power of the storage array to reduce the impact of data protection activities on the virtual host systems, especially important for highly transactional business applications.  On-Demand Sandbox for Storage Snapshots uses storage snapshots on primary and secondary storage systems to create complete isolated copies of production VMs, for fast and easy dev/testing and troubleshooting.

So when you are able to tear yourself away from the excitement of the Windy city and/or all the happenings of VeeamOn 2018, be sure to visit the HPE site for Virtualization to get more info on HPE Storage solutions for Virtualization and the HPE site for our HPE Data Protection Solutions.
