Veeam for IBM Cloud: A backup and disaster recovery solution

Backup and disaster recovery is no longer a luxury, but an absolute necessity. Whether in your own data center, cloud, or a multicloud environment, you need a disaster recovery and backup plan.

Veeam on IBM Cloud is one option. IBM Cloud provides full bare metal and hypervisor access, and this is important because it significantly reduces the learning curve of using the cloud. This enables organizations to maintain the same security, flexibility, and control that they’re currently running in their own data center today.

In this lightboarding video, I'm going to go over the benefits you will enjoy by using Veeam on IBM Cloud for your disaster recovery and backup needs.

What is Veeam?

Hi, my name is Jordan Shamir with IBM Cloud, and today I'm going to be talking about Veeam.

Veeam is an intelligent data-management backup and disaster recovery solution that is focused on providing hyper-availability and uptime for their customers.

Veeam Backup and Disaster Recovery

Backup and disaster recovery

Backup and disaster recovery is no longer a luxury, but an absolute necessity. Our consumers expect us to stay online, they want to be able to access their products when they want it. 

However, this is becoming much more challenging with the rise of disasters, such as natural disasters, the rise of ransomware and cyberattacks, and, lastly, human errors. Maintaining this uptime and availability is becoming much, much more challenging.

Backup and disaster recovery environments in the cloud

Many businesses have their disaster recovery and backup environment within their own data center. This is risky because if your data center goes down, you are down.

Data centers

So, as companies begin to modernize, they look at their cloud to provide a disaster recovery and backup environment.

Some of the benefits are the geographic spread. We're giving you that two-hundred, four-hundred, five-hundred mile difference to ensure availability by a different region. 

Also, beyond that, we provide a variety of different economic benefits because you don't need a disaster recovery environment until you're going through a test or an outage. So, within the cloud, you can use the flexibility to have a low initial footprint and scale up as needed to accommodate an outage.

Disaster and backup recovery benefits

Backup and disaster recovery vs. availability

Backup and disaster recovery is completely different than availability. Cloud service providers guarantee you a certain level of availability of your workloads, but it doesn't mean that your workloads are backed up and resilient.

IBM Cloud and deployment flexibility

It's critical that businesses have deployment flexibility, as their requirements vary by specific applications and workloads. In IBM Cloud, we have over 13,000 different deployments of Veeam. You can either deploy on our Virtual Server Instances, are Non-Virtualized Bare Betal, as well as our VMware and SAP workloads. These deployment options are available in 60+ data centers around the globe.

Replicate between data centers for free

One of the really cool things as you can actually replicate between these data centers for free and securely. So, if I think about backing up my own workloads, I have my production data center in A, and then my backup data center in B. So, replicating between the two is completely free and secure within the IBM Cloud. And this really saves me a significant amount of networking cost to have a backup and disaster recovery environment in the cloud.
