Legion of Superheroes Goes Global: HPE and Veeam Software



Last year at HPE Discover, we had announced a new partnership agreement between two superheroes of IT industry to protect your data and applications. Doesn’t ring a bell?

Hewlett Packard Enterprise, the superhero of the storage industry, teamed up with Veeam® Software, the superhero of data HPE Storage Veeam SuperHeroes_blog.jpgavailability, because your data needs our combined protection more than ever. This unique partnership was initially introduced in the United States, Canada and Latin America.

Overwhelmed with the response from customers and the growing challenges of protecting data and application across the globe, we are pleased to announce that as of now, our partnership between Veeam Software and HPE Storage extends globally across all regions and countries.

A quick recap of the combined powers of the two superheroes: HPE+ Veeam – Better Together!

For the last 12-15 months, we have  enhanced the federation capabilities of HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage and HPE StoreOnce data protection platforms in order to enable zero-impact application protection as enterprises move to the all-flash data center. Building on that foundation, we have expanded our HPE Complete program with a resale and go-to-market relationship with Veeam, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™.HPE Storage Veeam 1.JPGKey benefits include:

  • Simple access to the one of the world’s most popular backup software vendors
  • Ability to accelerate software integration with HPE storage solutions
  • Faster time-to-market by minimizing risk and complexity of joint HPE & Veeam solutions
  • Ease of ordering and interoperability assurance of joint HPE & Veeam solutions for HPE customers

You will receive the following benefits from Veeam joining the HPE Complete program:

  • One-stop shop — Purchase a complete HPE and Veeam solution via a single HPE purchase order.
  • Validated solution — Be confident of HPE’s interop assurance validation for Veeam software to complement HPE storage and server solutions.
  • Customer experience Count on customer satisfaction with our hep troubleshooting the solution and facilitating third-party expertise for the installation, support and warranty of your products.
  • Unique value – Minimize risk, complexity and cost when deploying multivendor products and technologies into the HPE ecosystem.

As part of the HPE Complete program, customers will be able to purchase Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup & Replication, and Veeam Backup Essentials Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.HPE Storage Veeam at a Glance 2.JPG
When do I know that Veeam is a good fit?

Here are a few common scenarios:

  • Any time you deploy HPE storage solutions and require 24/7 data availability
  • If you depend on having your data available at all times, and require a simple way to restore lost or corrupt virtual machines or applications
  • If you are struggling to protect your IT environment because of high data growth
  • If your environment is highly virtualized with VMware vSphere and/or Microsoft Hyper-V and is struggling with legacy backup and recovery solutions

All Veeam software solutions provide both recovery time and recovery point objectives of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. This is one of many features that has made Veeam one of the most in demand software superheroes on the market today.

Integration with HPE Storage

Veeam Software provides advanced data availability for HPE’s entire storage portfolio. These solutions offer seamless integration and availability that reach beyond the data center, -enabling recovery of any IT service and related applications regardless of location. With Veeam’s advance replication capabilities you can ensure that your organizations mission-critical data is always available with one unified solution. Integration of Veeam’s Availability solutions with flash-optimized HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HPE StoreVirtual Storage, coupled with HPE StoreOnce Systems for data protection, provides  comprehensive data and application availability.HPE Storage Veeam Integration 3.JPG


Wait! There is more to this superhero partnership.

For years Veeam has supported HPE Storage snapshot and StoreOnce Catalyst. Now we’re taking it one step further.HPE Storage Veeam timeline 4.JPGLast year, Veeam and HPE had announced support for Instant VM Recovery (IVMR) and the other Veeam vPower NFS features with StoreOnce Catalyst.

The required software versions are Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 and StoreOnce 3.15.1 software or newer. This support for IVMR has been made possible by multiple performance improvements in StoreOnce 3.15.1 software.

This is important because StoreOnce Catalyst for the Veeam backup repository, is the only way to have the fast restore of Veeam IVMR and the other vPower NFS features and the space saving and backup efficiency of an in-line deduplication appliance. This gives HPE an edge over our main competitors as this feature is not supported by some of the other backup appliances.
