Everyone needs a place to store their backup’s offsite and recover quickly in the event of a disaster. But not everyone has a second site or the resources to implement an effective disaster recovery plan.
Get your backups off site without the cost and complexity of managing an offsite infrastructure. Veeam® Cloud Connect provides afully integrated, fast and secure way to backup and restore from the cloud.
Veeam’s “3-2-1 rule“: 3 copies of your data, on 2 different media, with at least 1 copy in a remote location, is an effective strategy to enhance the availability of precious data, but requires at least two sites, previously price prohibitive to most companies. With Veeam Cloud Connect, there is no need to own the second site; the same solution can be offered by Computer Merchants, so you don’t incur capital expenses to build and maintain an additional infrastructure, instead you can quickly and easily consume a service with a “pay as you go” model.
The namesake of this solution Veeam Cloud Connect, does what it says, enables the connection between Veeam customers and Computer Merchants to send data offsite easily and in a secure way.
You can even add or remove users (if your staff levels increase or decrease) without having to worry about the impact it is going to have on your infrastructure especially with off-siting your backups; Computer Merchants use of Veeam Cloud Connect is an incredibly scalable product.
Veeam Cloud Connect removes the two main hurdles that this service required in the past:
- VPN tunnels and dedicated repositories. VPN is not easy to be automatically configured, and usually requires an interaction between the service provider, in this case Computer Merchants and you, the customer. With Veeam Cloud Connect, the connection will happen directly over the Internet, using a single TCP port protected by SSL encryption. This is now possible thanks to a new Veeam component, called the Cloud Gateway.
- WAN Accelerator: any customer with Veeam Backup and Replication Enterprise Plus Edition will be able to use the accelerator and speed up their backup copy operations.Therefore your backup window is not going to be flooding your internet pipe all day; meaning your users are not going to experience connection timeouts and lags online.
Plus, for complete security, the recently announced encryption capability in Veeam Availability Suite v8 will be available for any job pointed at Veeam Cloud Connect. The final result will be an end-to-end encrypted file, from your site, through the Internet, up to the final Cloud Repository.
So, what changes for you? Absolutely nothing, and this is the beauty of the solution.
