StorageExperts

Have you wondered whether you can ever find a data protection solution that practically manages itself while making it easy to protect data in both virtual and physical environments?

Many companies are wondering the same things. Today, while businesses need data and applications to be available HPE Nimble Storage-Veeam-data protection-blog.jpg24x7x365, 77% of organizations don’t have an effective data protection strategy in place should disaster strike.*

Data protection can be very complicated. You’re dealing with exploding data growth, data silos, demanding SLAs, and to make matters worse, the rise of threats like ransomware,

How can HPE and Veeam help?

Finding faster, simpler, more affordable ways to ensure data and application availability—for all environments—is a business necessity. The new HPE and Veeam data protection solution reference configuraton features the Veeam Availability Suite and HPE Nimble Storage as the backup target. By deploying this solution, you’ll be able to reap benefits such as:

  • Flash-accelerated data protection with no dedicated backup admin or storage expertise required—Backup faster and achieve instant restores for VM', files, or application items with Veeam Explorer. Improve your RPOs by making copies often with over a thousand zero-impact, array-based snapshots.
  • Hassle-free data availability with HPE InfoSight and Veeam One—Let us help you predict, prevent and resolve cross-stack performance issues before they impact your business. When it comes to planning, trade guesswork for accurate forecasts, capacity-planning, and complete visibility into your data with VeeamOne and HPE InfoSight. And don’t ever worry about your data growth because you can scale capacity and performance independently and non-disruptively with HPE Nimble Storage and Veeam.
  • Put your backup data to work to get value from backups by combining capacity-efficient hybrid flash and Veeam DataLabs—Speed up secondary workloads such as dev/test, DR, and analytics when you spin up Veeam DataLabs or Nimble zero copy clones. Free up your production infrastructure by making backups from replicated snapshots instead of wasting production server and storage resources. And don’t forget the power of flash performance at a fraction of the cost with the industry's most capacity-efficient, high-performing hybrid flash arrays

 HPE Nimble and Veeam Availability Suite solution overview 

The solution highlights HPE Nimble Storage snapshot integration with Veeam Backup & Replication, as well as HPE Nimble Storage as a backup target. Note that hardware snapshot integration helps to reduce the impact on the production data and performance due to data protection activity by pulling data directly from an HPE Nimble Storage snapshot, rather than production ESXi hosts.

As shown in this graphic, the Reference Configuration includes HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 servers using HPE Nimble Storage AF40 array as primary storage and an HPE Nimble Storage CS3000 array serving as the backup target. The software components include VMware vCenter® (vCenter) and Veeam Backup & Replication. The solution was designed with the 3-2-1 Rule in mind, stating that it is a best practice to maintain at least three copies of production data: the first copy on the primary storage, the second copy on another type of media, and the third copy on remote media.
