New Veeam Availability Suite v8

The Always-On Business

In today’s interconnected and global business environment, customers, partners, suppliers and employees expect access to information and applications at any time and from any device, with no tolerance for downtime or data loss. IT organisations must therefore make data and applications available to all stakeholders every minute of every day. This is the era of the Always-On Business™.


The Availability Gap

Achieving non-stop service and continuous protection has traditionally required a significant investment in fully redundant systems with instant failover capabilities. These kinds of investments could only be justified for a few applications, so the vast majority of workloads are served with lower performing, legacy backup solutions allowing recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives (RTO and RPO) of several hours or days. These low performance levels fail to meet the requirements of the Always-On Business, creating a significant availability gap.


Bridging The Gap

Veeam® bridges this availability gap by leveraging the capabilities of the modern data centre — including virtualization, new storage integration and cloud capabilities — to provide five key enabling capabilities. These enabling capabilities in turn allow for a recovery time and point objective (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes for the majority of workloads, bridging the availability gap and enabling the Always-On Business.


ESG Study: Veeam Beats Legacy Backup

The results are clear – a recent ESG survey finds those who switch to Veeam increase their availability:

  • Backups completed within Backup windows: 95% Veeam vs 73% Legacy Backups
  • Meeting Recovery Time Objectives: 96% Veeam vs 77% Legacy Backups
  • Recover applications in <60 minutes: 86% Veeam vs 18% Legacy Backups
