Affordable data protection with HPE Apollo Servers and Veeam Availability Suite


Good things come in threes—when it comes to affordable data protection, HPE Apollo severs and Veeam Availability Suite.

HPE-Veeam-data protection_blog.jpg

Have you lately been challenged with finding a data protection solution that:

  1. Fits your budget
  2. Simplifies backups and restores for your IT staff
  3. Delivers enough reliability to reduce downtime

You’re not alone. Many businesses today do not have data protection mechanisms or even storage specialists on staff. A simple yet reliable data backup system is critical to:

  1. Keeping your business running
  2. Meeting ever-evolving user expectations
  3. Remaining competitive

How can HPE and Veeam help?

The new Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Veeam data protection solution Reference Architecture (RA) features the Veeam Availability Suite and HPE Apollo Servers as the backup target. This RA is verified by HPE and Veeam and provides multiple configurations specifically built, tuned, and tested for Veeam with different performance and capacity.

The solution delivers a simple and cost-effective data protection infrastructure. Here’s how:

  • Rapid backups and restores—Write backup data to local storage in the HPE Apollo Server to reduce the time it takes to backup/restore critical applications and workloads you no longer need to transfer data to and from a separate storage resource using either a Fibre Channel or Ethernet based transfer medium.
  • Scalable and simple—Instead of deploying a solution based on compute-only and storage-only components, you have a converged solution with HPE Apollo Server that has not only hundreds of terabytes of local storage capacity, but also the required compute resources run the Windows® operating system and Veeam Availability Suite software on the same server.
  • Cost-efficient—You don’t need additional storage licenses to deploy the storage capacity of the HPE Apollo server.
  • Proven protection—With joint HPE and Veeam testing, you have the blueprint for configuring hardware and storage resources with minimal additional tuning.

While Table 1 in this post shows some of the specs for the Apollo Gen10, the linked Reference Architecture document with all of the part number is for a Gen9. Can you provide an updated Reference Architecture for Veeam with the Gen10 and applicable HP part numbers? Thanks.

@zack You're in luck - a new RA just published based on Gen10. Here's a link to that:

Perfect, thanks for the update HPEStorageGuy. Recommend updating the link in the post to the new RA for others, if possible.
