Veeam version 9.5 and Nimble are a Snap!
Veeam announced that the company will expand existing storage integration to include Nimble Storage as part of the new Veeam Availability Suite™ version 9.5, to be released later this year, resulting in increased Availability and improved operational performance for all Nimble Storage users.
Veeam and Nimble Storage’s integration opens up the Availability conversation to a much wider ecosystem and the relationship provides cost-effective data protection for our rapidly expanding enterprise customer base. Nimble and Veeam solutions can not only coexist in modern data centers but simplify IT operations at a lower total cost of ownership. The new integration with Nimble Storage will move enterprises beyond backup and into the new era of Availability, helping them to meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data.
- Backup from Storage Snapshots: Lower the additional impact from backup activities on production storage by retrieving virtual machine (VM) data from Nimble Storage snapshots on primary storage or their replicated copies on secondary storage;
Veeam Explorer™ for Storage Snapshots: Recover individual application items, guest files or entire VMs quickly and efficiently from periodic Nimble Storage snapshots and their replicated copies created by Veeam jobs or with the native scheduler;
On-Demand Sandbox™ for Storage Snapshots: Use storage snapshots on primary and secondary storage systems to create complete isolated copies of production environment in just a few clicks, for fast and easy developing, testing and troubleshooting.
We have gained knowledge and understanding around both technologies over many years of successful customer installations, plus we utilize both Veeam and Nimble within our own data center environment. The closer integration between the version 9.5 and Nimble Storage is very welcome and will be well received by both our technical and business teams.
