Home Industry Deals Veeam expands integration with HP

Virtualisation management solutions provider, Veeam Software, has expanded its integration with HP to include snapshot recovery for HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000Storage using HP 3PAR Virtual Copy software.

Charles Clarke, Technical Director APAC for Veeam, said with new HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage models introducing Tier 1 storage with midrange affordability, many more customers can deploy a “complete data protection solution using Veeam snapshot recovery technology,” and he said, Veeam would support all other 3PAR models, “so customers will have even more options.”

According to Clarke, Veeam already has many enterprise customers who are using HP 3PAR Storage with Virtual Copy snapshots “with great success in their virtualised environments.”

“The platform’s performance and ease of use are outstanding.”

Clarke said that most industry experts agreed that modern data protection should include the use of storage snapshots as part of a comprehensive data protection strategy.

He said Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots was created to combine recovery from SAN snapshots and backups into a cohesive, multi-tier solution with no compromises. “Multi-tier recovery offers the best of both worlds, fast recovery from frequent SAN snapshots and the security of a second copy of data.”

Steve Crimi, Director, Storage Solutions and Alliances, HP, said that to ensure business continuity, “midsized organisations need Tier 1 storage resiliency with business protection that provides rapid data restoration.”

“HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage with Virtual Copy snapshots paired with Veeam Backup & Replication delivers lightning-fast recovery capabilities that allows clients to restore virtual environments before daily workflow or new business opportunities can be disrupted.”

Clarke said Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots with support for HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage, and all other 3PAR models, was expected to be available in the first half of 2013.
