Veeam Adds Disaster Recovery to its Solutions for the Always-On Enterprise

Working together with Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication, the Availability Orchestrator reduces costs and increases reliability of disaster recovery plans

Veeam Software come out with the Veeam Availability Orchestrator, a multi-hypervisor disaster recovery orchestration engine that enables enterprises to easily execute, test and document DR plans. Veeam Availability Orchestrator provides orchestration of Veeam backups and replicas through a defined disaster recovery plan, non-disruptive testing, automated documenting, updating and reporting. This combination of capabilities helps enterprise customers to ensure data and application availability, maintain reliability, reduce costs of manual processes, and satisfy compliance requirements.

Data protection and disaster recovery are key areas for improving availability as unplanned IT outages cost the average organization $16 million a year. According to Gartner, by the end of 2017, 60 percent of large enterprises will have transitioned from a sole dependence on traditional disaster recovery management to a broader use of IT service continuity management. In the evolving digital business era, the criticality of recovery time and recovery point service levels is becoming subordinate to support for sustainable IT service continuity.

The new Veeam Availability Orchestrator solves current issues with DR plans by providing enterprises with a multi-hypervisor DR orchestration engine for Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication. Built specifically for the enterprise, this new solution from Veeam provides orchestration thorough coordination of Veeam backups and replicas through a defined DR plan. Automated DR Testing is non-disruptive to maintain reliability and avoid expensive manual processes. Additionally, the solution enables built-in documenting, updating and reporting of DR plans to satisfy compliance requirements.

Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam Software commented, “Well-orchestrated and tested DR plans continue to remain one of the primary challenges facing CIOs. While many enterprises have plans in place, they are complex and cumbersome, which means they are often unreliable and difficult to execute, as well as untested and outdated. This puts compliance and enterprise availability at risk. The new Veeam Availability Orchestrator continues our mission to enable enterprises to achieve 24/7/365 availability. It enables modern SLAs for data and application recovery to be met, reduces costs, increases reliability by eliminating manual processes, all while satisfying compliance requirements.”

Available later this year, Veeam Availability Orchestrator is designed to work with Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication, and licensed per virtual machine. Customers are required to own an Enterprise plus license for either Veeam Availability Suite or Veeam Backup & Replication.
