Veeam Software makes its new Availability Orchestrator v2 widely available. The new version should extend the powerful orchestration and automation capabilities to a broader set of applications and virtual machines.

With these more extensive possibilities, organizations should be helped to deal with various operational and disaster recovery and data migration scenarios. In addition, these capabilities become available to any organization using Veeam’s backup and replication capabilities through the company’s Availability Platform.

According to Danny Allan, vice president of product strategy at the company, the new version of the solution removes the challenges of manual processes by introducing “reliable orchestrated recovery of production VMs, whether they are protected by backups or replicas”.

“This includes the ability to use protection data quickly and efficiently to prove remediation and compliance, whether required internally or by regulations such as the GDPR.

Reduce costs

According to Veeam, 80 percent of the companies in recent years had an incident requiring the use of a disaster recovery plan. That is why it is important that organisations protect themselves, plan and prepare themselves to deal with disruptions. Veeam research reveals that downtime of just one business-critical application costs an average of more than $102,000 per hour.

According to the backup specialist, companies can drastically reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of disaster recovery by automatically testing, documenting and reliably restoring entire sites and individual workloads in a completely orchestrated manner.

In addition, it should be easier to comply with SLAs for internal and external regulation, legislation and audits. This is now possible through improved reporting and compliance capabilities. In addition, business departments, application owners and executive teams can get their own secure access to orchestration planning and testing resources through advanced delegation and role-based access control (RBAC), as Veeam announced during its annual event in Miami.
