Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform Accelerates Hybrid-Cloud Adoption

Veeam Software, backup solutions provider that delivers cloud data management, is expanding its public cloud support with the general availability of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform. This completes the company’s support for all three major public cloud providers.

With this new offering, Veeam delivers a single platform to protect, secure, and manage all applications and data—cloud, virtual, and physical—enabling organizations to accelerate hybrid-cloud adoption.

Veeam helps customers address security and data protection responsibilities by delivering Google Cloud backup and recovery to protect and secure applications and data, utilizing and automating Google Cloud-native technologies to quickly and reliably overcome any cloud data loss.

Users that will benefit the most from this release include developers within education, local and state governments, the container community, and more, according to Dave Russell, EVP of enterprise strategy at Veeam.

New functionality of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform includes:

  • Google Cloud-Native: Simple yet powerful web UI, deployable from the Google Cloud Marketplace starts protecting data in minutes; Policy-Based Automation of Google Cloud-native snapshots for fast and frequent recovery points, and rapid full- and file-level recovery options to overcome any cloud data loss.
  • Cost Optimization: Industry-first cost calculation to align service-level objectives (SLOs) with budgets while avoiding cloud overspend; back up to Google Cloud object storage for cost-effective long-term retention and compliance.
  • Security: Overcome security threats including ransomware as well as insider threats by isolating backup data from production (cross-project/cross-region); layered security to protect against brute force attacks with multi-factor authentication (MFA).
  • Hybrid-Ready: Portable data format and integration with Veeam Backup and Replication external repositories enables easy recovery outside of Google Cloud; utilizes flexible Veeam Universal Licensing (VUL) to simplify license management and enable Cloud Mobility.

Throughout the development process of this release Veeam consulted with its own user community as to what features and concerns were top of mind. According to an upcoming survey the company conducted, security and cost were factors in whether or not companies were moving to the cloud.

“Many organizations think the cloud will be cost effective but they still worry about runaway costs,” said Russell. “We’ve taken that the heart in the initial design for cost optimization. We want to give guidance before assigning service or policy to understand if what you’re trying to achieve will fit within budget.”

New Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform FREE edition (up to 10 Google Cloud workloads can be backed up with unlimited restore options and basic support) and BYOL edition (VUL with flexible Cloud Data Management and production 24/7 support) is available now in the Google Cloud Marketplace.

“We will continue to have an aggressive release cadence and we are actively working on next gen of AWS, Azure, and Google,” Russell said. “We’ve had customers grow with us. There’s this sense of community giving us great feedback for the future.”
