Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots Gives Midsized Organisations Powerful and Easy-to-use Recovery of Virtual Machines

Veeam Software (http://www.veeam.com/?ad=pr1), innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualisation management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, has expanded integration with HP to include SAN snapshot recovery for HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage (http://www.hp.com/go/storeserv7000), using HP 3PAR Virtual Copy Software.

Currently, Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots (http://go.veeam.com/san-snapshot-explorer.html) enables IT administrators to recover virtual machines (VMs) or data directly from HP StoreVirtual Storage (http://www.hp.com/go/StoreVirtual) snapshots within the Veeam Backup & Replication application. Veeam support for the new 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage and all other 3PAR models is expected to become available in the first half of 2013.

Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software says: “We already have many enterprise customers today who are using HP 3PAR Storage with Virtual Copy snapshots with great success in their virtualised environments. The platform’s performance and ease of use are outstanding. With new HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage models introducing Tier 1 storage with midrange affordability, many more customers can deploy a complete data protection solution using Veeam snapshot recovery technology. In addition, Veeam will support all other 3PAR models, so customers will have even more options. ”

Most industry experts agree that modern data protection should include the use of storage snapshots as part of a comprehensive data protection strategy. Veeam Explorer for SAN Snapshots was created to combine recovery from SAN snapshots and backups into a cohesive, multi-tier solution with no compromises. Multi-tier recovery offers the best of both worlds: fast recovery from frequent SAN snapshots and the security of a second copy of data.

Steve Crimi, Director, Storage Solutions and Alliances, HP says: “To ensure business continuity, midsized organisations need Tier 1 storage resiliency with business protection that provides rapid data restoration. HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage with Virtual Copy snapshots paired with Veeam Backup & Replication delivers lightning-fast recovery capabilities that allows clients to restore virtual environments before daily workflow or new business opportunities can be disrupted.”

  • Powerful

– Fully automated process mounts the selected SAN snapshot and protects integrity of production LUNs.
– Recover single files from SAN snapshots in a few minutes.

  • Easy-to-Use

– Easy-to-use wizards for recovery of VMs, files and application items.
– No agents to deploy on hosts or VMs.

  • Affordable – Included in all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5, as well as Veeam Backup Free Edition.
