Veeam will work with storage, HCI and hardware partners to provide complete secondary storage solutions. At its VeeamON conference, the company announced the with Veeam program, which aims to provide users with even more opportunities in this area.

Veeam and its partners want to use the collaboration program to provide end users and vertical segments with the right features that secondary storage can offer them. The Veeam Availability Platform stack is linked to the partner’s best storage and HCI applications and solutions. The partners then integrate this data management platform with their own primary and secondary storage solutions and applications.

This should ultimately result in a common platform for secondary storage and be easy to purchase, customise and manage. Of course, this platform can then easily be rolled out across the entire company or organisation.

Benefits for end users

In this way, end users will have all options for their data protection, retention, availability and management. Options include sufficient computing power and storage, scalability, a consistent set of recovery options, and a single SKU that provides visibility into all installed software and the appropriate custom hardware.

The latter option allows end-users to purchase the complete solution from a vendor in a single purchase and to have a single point of contact for support. The link should also offer end users various options for scale-up and scale-out, a constistent set of recovery options, among other things.

Nutanix and ExaGrid first partners

Nutanix and ExaGrid have been announced as the first partners in the with Veeam partnership. For example, the first party has already announced its Nutanix Mine with Veeam solution for several weeks. ExaGrid already presented a solution last month; ExaGrid Backup with Veeam in April this year. According to the cloud-based backup specialist, more collaborations with other parties are in the making.

Some of these with Veeam solutions will soon be sold and maintained directly through an infrastructure partner. Other solutions will be delivered through global distribution partners and integrators. This depends on the region and on the partner network, Veeam announces.
