Best-of-breed backup and replication

How Covenco is pairing IBM and Veeam to deliver industry-leading data protection solutions.

Data is critical to businesses, and the need for reliable and efficient data protection solutions has never been more important. Veeam software, when combined with IBM storage systems, offers a best-of-breed backup, replication, and recovery solution for organisations of all sizes.

Veeam Software provides robust, easy-to-use data protection solutions that help businesses protect their critical data and applications. The software supports various platforms and applications, including virtual, physical, and cloud-based environments. When running alongside an IBM storage system, Veeam software offers multiple benefits. This makes it an ideal solution for businesses looking to protect their data.

Benefits of using Veeam & IBM.

One of the benefits of using Veeam software on an IBM storage system is that it provides a more reliable backup, replication, and recovery solution. Businesses can easily schedule regular backups of their data and applications and replicate this data to other locations for added protection. a disaster or outage, companies can recover their data and applications much more quickly, ensuring they can get back up and running with the absolute minimum of downtime.

A key benefit of using Veeam on an IBM storage system is its high performance and scalability. The software takes advantage of the capabilities of IBM storage systems, ensuring that backups and recoveries are fast and efficient. This means that businesses can quickly scale their data protection solutions as their needs grow. Ensuring they can protect their data no matter how large or complex their environment becomes.

Advanced features.

Veeam software also offers advanced features such as instant recovery and item-level recovery. With instant recovery, businesses can quickly recover their virtual machines in the event of an outage, ensuring they can get back up and running as soon as possible. With item-level recovery, businesses can quickly recover individual files and applications rather than restoring an entire backup. This helps to minimise downtime and ensure that critical applications and data are always available.

In addition to its powerful data protection capabilities, Veeam software also offers advanced monitoring and reporting features. Businesses can easily monitor the status of their backups and recoveries on IBM storage and generate detailed reports that provide insights into their data protection solutions. This helps companies identify and address issues, ensuring their data is always protected and available.

Veeam software running on an IBM storage system provides the following:

  • A best-of-breed backup.
  • Advanced Replication.
  • Near instant Recovery Solutions for businesses of all sizes.

By choosing Veeam software on an IBM storage system, businesses can rest assured that their data is always protected and available, no matter what happens.

Innovation in Data Storage

IBM is known for its innovative technologies, and its storage systems are no exception. IBM has been at the forefront of developing new technologies that improve the reliability and security of storage systems. For example, IBM’s FlashSystem storage solutions use innovative data reduction techniques, including compression and deduplication, to reduce the amount of data that needs to be stored, improving performance and reducing the risk of data loss.

Built-In Security Features with IBM Storage Systems

IBM storage systems are designed with security in mind, and they come with a range of built-in security features that help protect data from unauthorised access and data breaches. For example, IBM’s Spectrum Virtualize storage software encrypts data at rest and in flight, ensuring that data is always protected. IBM storage solutions also offer advanced security features such as access controls, secure boot, and secure erase, which help prevent unauthorised access to data.

Why IBM Storage delivers improved High Availability and Disaster Recovery

IBM storage systems are designed for high availability and disaster recovery, ensuring that data is always accessible and protected. IBM’s Spectrum Virtualize storage software provides features such as data replication and mirroring, allowing data to be automatically copied to multiple locations for redundancy and disaster recovery purposes.

Additionally, IBM’s storage solutions are designed to be highly available, with built-in redundancy and failover capabilities that ensure data is always available, even in the event of a hardware failure.

IBM Safeguarded Copy and Veeam Solutions

IBM’s Safeguarded Copy can work alongside Veeam to provide additional protection for data stored on IBM storage systems. For example, IT managers can use Veeam to create data backups and IBM Safeguarded Copy to make an extra, immutable copy of the data on their IBM HDD storage. This would provide customers with an added layer of protection in case the original data or backup becomes corrupted or lost – or in the event of a ransomware attack.
