Cisco Teams With Veeam to Promote High Availability

Cisco has teamed with Veeam Software to deliver Veeam High Availability on Cisco HyperFlex—a data management platform intended to provide scalability, ease of management, and support for multi-cloud environments through Cisco support services. 

The new solution combines the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform with Cisco's hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution, HyperFlex, to meet the needs of enterprise IT organizations that are struggling with unreliable legacy technologies that cannot scale and are unable to provide the hyper-availability today's enterprises require.

"As the data protection market evolves to more software defined and scale-out, the need for a scalable enterprise-ready platform and feature rich software stack is critical to ensure customer success," said Siva Sivakumar, senior director of Data Center Solutions at Cisco. "Veeam's intelligent data management capabilities, combined with Cisco HyperFlex, addresses this need. Our joint goal is to continue expanding the solution with new capabilities that address modern IT recovery, retention and resiliency requirements."

The new Veeam Availability on Cisco HyperFlex, is expected to be available in Q4, and will be offered through Cisco and is backed by Cisco Solution Support.
