Availability for the Modern Data Centre provides an RTPO of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data

Veeam® Software, innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced Veeam on Tour in South Africa to unveil Veeam Availability Suite™, a solution that ensures all applications and data are accessible whenever and wherever they are needed. Veeam on Tour kicks off in Johannesburg on 27 May, before moving to Durban on 4 June, and ending in Cape Town on 5 June.

Stefanutti Stocks will also participate in Veeam on Tour South Africa, presenting real-world examples of how Veeam solutions helped them to ensure high-speed recovery and data loss avoidance, while also providing complete visibility into their modern data centres.

Leveraging modern virtualisation, storage and cloud technologies, and now integrating deeply with the leading solutions from EMC, HP and NetApp, Veeam Availability Suite provides critical enabling technology for the Modern Data Centre. Alliances such as NetApp and VMware will join Veeam as event sponsors in support of Veeam on Tour South Africa.

“NetApp’s partnership with Veeam and VMware brings greater value to both our customers and partners,” says Mark Ridley, regional director for Africa at NetApp. “It doesn’t only give them access to an integrated solution that delivers unprecedented levels of data protection, matching the requirements of today’s data-driven businesses, but they can also get more value out of their backup data while improving storage efficiency. For NetApp as a company, the partnership with Veeam gives us an opportunity to reach out to a wider pool of customers and partners, helping us grow our industry network.”

In addition to Veeam Availability Suite, the agenda includes a preview of Veeam Management Pack™ (MP) v7 for System Center, available in Q3, 2014. In a single product, this Veeam MP release integrates fully with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, providing app-to-metal visibility, for both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere layers.

“It is NetApp’s first time participating in the Veeam on Tour events and we’re looking forward to it,” says Ridley. “Most importantly, we hope that the attendees will gain insights into the latest technologies by NetApp and Veeam, and see first-hand how the solutions will benefit their businesses.”

Veeam on Tour is ideal for those who are interested in the enabling technology that transforms the Always-On Business into a reality. The event will include live presentations, interactive round tables, live demonstrations, best practices and open discussions.
