How to Simplify Off-Site Backup for Virtual Environments

You may also be keenly conscious of the unique needs that virtual server environments pose

If you happen to be managing a virtual server environment, such as VMware or Hyper-V, you are probably aware of the importance of backup software to protect your valuable applications and data in case of disaster. You may also be keenly conscious of the unique needs that virtual server environments pose, such as virtual machine sprawl, contention for server resources and spiraling data growth (often duplicate data), in which case there is probably no need to spend a lot of time touting the benefits of Veeam Backup & Replication.

Over the past few years, Veeam has become the leader in backup for virtual environments offering class-leading consolidated and highly efficient backup and replication that was designed and optimized to handle the special requirements associated with ever-popular virtual machine backups.

Starting with Veeam as a foundation, is it possible to make backup and recovery even simpler? Well, one of the challenges of backup is moving backup data off site for disaster recovery (DR) purposes. You might settle for the manual and rather unreliable process of shipping tapes or media offsite with the hope of getting your data back in a reasonable period of time should a disaster strike. Alternatively, you might build out a disk-to-disk backup infrastructure that extends off site to a secondary or collocation facility, housing additional storage equipment that you own and manage (learn more in my recent article Data Protection and Backup: The Shortcomings of Disk-to-Disk). But perhaps you are looking for a faster, simpler way to achieve your off-site DR objectives, without manual and unreliable processes and without significant capital and administrative investment.

Backup to Cloud

What if you could simply add off-site storage for backups without the need for tapes and without the need for a secondary site? What if at the touch of a button you could access secure off-site cloud storage that is bandwidth optimized with local-key encryption and offers instant recoverability virtually anywhere and a choice of cloud providers. That is TwinStrata CloudArray.

Needless to say, we were recently happy to announce that every copy of Veeam Backup & Replication now comes bundled with a free CloudArray virtual appliance up to 1TB. Backing up virtual server environments just became simpler and the need for tapes and offsite facilities may quickly become a distant memory. Each CloudArray appliance can scale to Petabytes of data with an iSCSI interface that allows seamlessly storing backups or archives. CloudArray also offers additional storage capacity wherever it is needed. If you are a backup administrator considering off-site backup and DR options, consider a better, simpler option that only takes minutes to deploy. Try Veeam with your free CloudArray virtual appliance and let us know how simple off-site backup for your virtual environment can be.
