Veeam and Wasabi for Maximum Data Protection

Combine industry-leading backup and restoration with immutable hot cloud storage for the best hybrid-cloud data protection

Data volume and velocity continue to grow at an exponential pace, with some industries experiencing 20, 40, or 80% compounded annual growth. Traditional backup appliances, with their costly scale-up architectures, cannot keep up and are increasingly susceptible to ransomware attacks.

Veeam® and Wasabi, with their combined offerings, form a complete data protection solution for on-premises and cloud-native workloads. The combined solutions support Veeam Backup & Replication™ (v9.5.4, v10, v11), Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, and Wasabi’s hot cloud storage with Object Lock for backup immutability. The single interface provided by Veeam keeps the operational management of backups simple while Wasabi’s limitless cloud storage provides exceptional data durability, security, and immutability. Together they provide exceptional performance at a low cost that first-generation backup solutions can’t match.

The most important part of any data protection strategy is the ability to rapidly restore accurate data and resume normal operations. This requires trusted backup data and storage performance that meets your recovery time objective (RTO). With S3 Object Lock, you can be certain that your data can be trusted. S3 Object Lock guarantees that your backup data cannot be deleted or altered by anyone in (or outside) of your organization, for any reason. Backup datasets are immutable and retained for the duration you define. Nothing can be deleted until that retention period has expired, guaranteeing you also meet your recovery point objective (RPO).

Practicing for a possible data loss requires frequent restore exercises, which pay dividends when “this is not a drill” and the revenue shot clock is ticking down. When using cloud storage this requires downloading data, sometimes at a gigabyte or potentially petabyte-scale – an expensive proposition with a provider like Amazon Web Services (AWS). With Wasabi hot cloud storage there are NO egress fees – validating that the integrity of backup data with partial or complete restores carries no cost other than the time and people required to run the exercise. This sets Wasabi apart from other cloud storage providers that have excessive egress fees, making it difficult to run this kind of exercise on a frequent basis.

Backup for Microsoft Office 365

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 enables backup and recovery for Exchange, SharePoint, and OneDrive for Business data. Veeam® Backup for Microsoft Office 365 also supports Wasabi hot cloud object storage as well as other S3 API compliant storage systems. Using Wasabi hot cloud storage for Office 365 backup enables customers to leverage the limitless capacity of the cloud.

Veeam Backup & Replication Streamlines Data Protection

With Veeam Backup and Replication (v10 & v11), Veeam enables you to copy objects directly to the cloud, simplifying your backup jobs and making the move to the cloud even easier. Veeam Backup and Recovery can automatically schedule old on-premises backups to be moved to the cloud via copy job. This set-and-forget feature ensures that your on-premise systems always maintain available disk space. Alternatively, you can set backups to be sent to local storage and the cloud simultaneously. This dramatically simplifies off-site backup and achieves compliance with the 3-2-1-1-0 Rule.

Veeam Backup & Replication supports data migration between different cloud object storage repositories. For example, you may have been using AWS S3 and have decided to change to Wasabi hot cloud storage. Using this feature, you would be able to transfer your data from AWS to Wasabi.

Veeam Cloud Tier, included in Veeam Availability Suite™ 9.5 Update 4, is the built-in automatic tiering feature of Scale-out Backup Repository™ that offloads older backup files to more affordable storage, such as Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Delivers Breakthrough Economics and Performance

Wasabi hot cloud storage delivers low-cost, fast, and reliable cloud storage on-demand and 80% less expensive than the biggest cloud service provider in the industry.
Wasabi keeps all data “hot” so it can be accessed in milliseconds. All Veeam and Wasabi customers can treat their data as hot data, so they can shorten backup windows, and quickly access their data for faster restore times.

Wasabi is qualified as a Veeam Ready Object and is now available using the S3 Compatible Object Storage selection within Veeam.
