Rick Vanover (Veeam Product Strategy Specialist & VMware vExpert) wrote a new interesting white paper about “EMC VNX and VNXe Family with Veeam Availability Suite” (published February 2016).
This document explains how avoid data loss and ensure high-speed recoveries while making the most out of your storage investment. New version “Veeam Availability Suite v9” introduces integration with the EMC VNX and VNXe Series of hybrid flash storage. This integration will provide data centers with new ways to enhance Availability by unleashing the power of storage snapshots for backup, replication and recovery tasks. This white paper will highlight the features and setup of this integration. With Backup from Storage Snapshots, the workflow is adjusted in a patented way to reduce the load on the VNX and VNXe family of hybrid flash arrays to allow backups to be taken with no limitations.
With this WP you see how you can unleash the power of VNX and VNXe storage snapshots and create new options for backups, replication jobs and recovery tasks. Rick has toured the usability of VNX and VNXe storage integration with Veeam Availability Suite. The goal of this integration is to enable high-speed recovery through Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots as well as data loss avoidance by leveraging Backup from Storage Snapshots technology. This integration with Veeam Availability Suite v9, and the VNX and VNXe arrays, easily enables these benefits. By unleashing the power of storage snapshots from the VNX and VNXe arrays, new options emerge for backups, replication jobs and recovery tasks.
