Veeam to showcase new Availability Suite at Gitex 2016
Veeam Software announced its participation at Gitex Technology Week 2016. The company will be showcasing its new Veeam Availability Suite 9.5, an upgraded version of the earlier solution that delivers recovery time and point objectives of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. At Gitex, the company will focus on building awareness about the newly launched Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud.
Gregg Petersen, Regional Director, MEA and SAARC, Veeam Software said, “Organisations are modernising their datacentres while facing new demands from end users including access to data and applications 24/7, no patience for downtime or data loss, and exponential data growth of 30 to 50% per year. Legacy backup cannot meet these requirements, and cannot deliver the availability that is needed in today’s modern datacentre. In fact, as per Veeam’s latest Availability Report, 82% of CIOs say there is a gap between the level of datacentre availability they provide and what end-users demand. This availability gap costs enterprises up to $16 million a year in lost revenue and productivity, in addition to the negative impact on customer confidence and brand integrity.”
“Availability is central to digital transformation. At Gitex, we intend to educate regional CIOs and IT managers about the need to transition from legacy backup solutions to high availability datacentre solutions like the Veeam Availability Suite, in order to make the most of their investments in virtualisation and become always on, always available operations. We have experienced a great deal of success and accelerated growth in the region as evidenced by our Q2 2016 results where we achieved 22% YoY growth in total bookings revenue. This goes to show that enterprises in the Middle East are embracing Veeam’s innovative approach of delivering availability solutions, which enable SLAs for recovery time and point objectives of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data.”
Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 will introduce new features including expanded storage snapshot integration to Nimble Storage, cloud restore for any Veeam backup, a technology partnership with Microsoft designed to modernise the organisation’s private cloud platform and enterprise applications, and enhanced VMware vCloud Director support for service providers. With the newly launched Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud, the company delivers availability for virtual, physical, and cloud based workloads.
