Veeam delivers hyper-availability for Nutanix AHV

News

Veeam Software has announced Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV - a data availability solution for applications and data hosted on the Nutanix AHV Hypervisor. The combination of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software and the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform will deliver a hyper-available enterprise cloud, according to the company.

The Nutanix software and Veeam platform will enable enterprises to more easily and confidently modernize their data center environments by delivering the agility and simplicity of the public cloud, and the security, control and availability they require in a private cloud.

Specifically, customers will benefit from: availability of all applications and data, minimizing the risk of data loss; enterprise-class, web-scale architecture to more effectively carry out their business objectives; and operational simplicity to eliminate the costs and complexity of legacy infrastructure, virtualization and data protection management.

“Over the last year, our partnership with Nutanix has enabled thousands of enterprises to leverage the power of multi-cloud environments,” said Peter McKay, President and Co-CEO at Veeam. “A year after being named the Premier Availability solution provider for Nutanix virtualized environments, our collaboration has accelerated and we will enhance this position with Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV.”

“We expect Nutanix will continue to be a pivotal part of our success in building the industry’s most extensive partner ecosystem and product integration program in support of delivering the leading platform for intelligent data management,” added McKay.

“Nutanix and Veeam combined deliver a best-in-class, simple solution that enables businesses to focus on outcomes, freeing them from traditional and problematic infrastructure and data protection headaches,” added Sudheesh Nair, President at Nutanix. “This joint solution will offer the agility and availability required by constantly changing environments, where application-first thinking is a must.”

Through this new solution, Nutanix AHV users will gain the same backup and rapid recovery capabilities that Veeam users running vSphere and Hyper-V already count on, including recovery granularity, optimized user experience, and decreased data loss exposure.

As organizations modernize from self-built virtualization infrastructures to the purpose-built hyperconverged platforms from Nutanix, the industry’s leading hyper-availability solution will assure that workloads are consistently protected, even as VMs move between hosted architectures. Since Veeam software protects physical servers and cloud-hosted workloads, protection of the Nutanix platforms is assured within a holistic intelligent data management strategy.

“We’ve been a Nutanix and Veeam customer for years, and we’ve never had an outage,” commented Greg Felzer, IT Architect at Fort Mill Police Department, and beta user of the new Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV. "The Veeam solution for AHV will be a well-polished product that will provide the same level of availability that we’ve depended on for our other hypervisor environments – the added simplicity of the Nutanix-like management interface will make it the obvious choice.”
