Veeam Software has announced the public beta release of the new Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v4 at Microsoft Ignite 2019 in Orlando, FL. Additionally, the company will be offering Microsoft Ignite attendees a sneak peek of a NEW cloud-native data protection solution for Microsoft Azure workloads, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.These new solutions support the company’s cloud strategy and provide Microsoft users with additional data protection, scalability, and enhanced control of their cloud-based data.
With Office 365, Microsoft is responsible for the uptime of the Office 365 infrastructure, but backup and management of the data is the customer’s responsibility. The NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v4 offers direct integration with Microsoft’s Azure Blob Storage, giving companies that want to keep their Office 365 data in Azure a cost-effective, scalable and secure solution for doing so. This latest release also adds additional performance improvements for backing up Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.
Ease of use is built into the new Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure with turn-key deployment via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, while powerful recovery capabilities are also delivered with features like file-level recovery for native snapshots and Veeam backups. An industry-first built-in cloud cost estimator tool will provide customers with greater cost controls and savings while integration with Veeam Backup & Replication™willallow customers to take control of their cloud data by protecting and managing Azure backups alongside their cloud, virtual and physical data.
“With 114% year-over-year growth, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365continues to be the fastest growing product in Veeam’s history,” said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Veeam. “Just as in the on-premises days with customers backing up and protecting their data, the need persists with SaaS solutions to backup and protect this same critical information. Veeam Backupfor Office 365delivers on this need and with the rapid rise in adoption for Azure we’re seeing across our customer base, Veeam is excited to build from our work with Microsoft and deliver a native backup solution developed specifically for Azure-based workloads.”
As a Gold Microsoft Partner, Veeam works closely to extend the value of Microsoft solutions to businesses worldwide. This commitment is proven in the new upcoming releases of Veeam’s Azure-native data protection solution. A sneak peek at Microsoft Ignite this week demonstrates that Veeam customers will soon be able to extend Veeam Backup & Replication to protect Azure-native instances.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure — bothfree and paid versions — will be available for deployment via the Azure Marketplace for cloud-first companies or departments.
