Veeam Data Cloud Offers Robust Backup-as-a-Service for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure

Veeam Software, the data protection and ransomware recovery provider, is debuting its Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure—the Veeam Data Cloud. Merging the cloud native design of the Veeam Data Cloud and Microsoft Azure’s data platform, the Veeam Data Cloud powers resilience, protection, and security for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure data from within a centralized and frictionless user experience, according to the company.

The Veeam Data Cloud features out-of-the-box, policy-driven backup software, infrastructure, and storage for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure data, delivered as-a-Service. Built on Zero Trust principles and utilizing Azure Blob Storage—which is isolated from production environments—Veeam’s solution offers a holistic protection experience that is continuously versioned, maintained, and ensured that backups are ready for rapid recovery.

“According to the Veeam Data Protection Trends Report 2024, 88% of enterprises were either very likely or almost certain to use a Backup as-a-Service (BaaS) or Disaster Recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS) for at least some of their production servers,” said Anand Eswaran, CEO at Veeam. “As the #1 global provider of data protection and ransomware recovery and the leader in backup for Microsoft 365, we're bringing those trusted capabilities—for Microsoft 365 and for Microsoft Azure—and delivering them as-a-Service. These new as-a-Service offerings, which are offered through the Veeam Data Platform, give companies the option of simplifying the management and administration of their backup operations with all the cyber resiliency and reliability of Veeam technology.”

Delivering a modern backup solution rich with features, the Veeam Data Cloud offers robust data protection and data recovery for Microsoft 365 environments, built to scale. The Veeam Data Cloud features an intuitive, modern web UI, where backup infrastructure and unlimited storage is bundled and covered by ongoing maintenance from experts.

The Veeam Data Cloud for Microsoft Azure specifically offers comprehensive data protection and data recovery for Azure VMs, Azure SQL, and Azure Files, empowering enterprises to take control of cloud costs and optimize business continuity.

“Veeam has always been a leader when it comes to building great technology. IT professionals with years of experience and training have found Veeam products easy to configure for their on-premises environments,” said John Annand, principal research director at Info-Tech Research Group. “Veeam Data Cloud alleviates the need to find sought-after experienced professionals to get full value out of it, enabling those experienced professionals to delegate and focus on other tasks. Veeam Data Cloud delivers the cyber resiliency and data protection wherever business needs dictate a workload should be put, rather than forcing all workloads to conform to one single safe haven.”
