Veeam Software has extended its portfolio of availability solutions to support Oracle Solaris and IBM AIX and operating environments, enabling enterprise customers to replace their legacy backup solution with a comprehensive data protection and availability solution to protect mission-critical applications, systems and data.
Veeam’s support for Oracle Solaris and IBM AIX via a technology partnership with Cristie Software allows enterprises to drive business transformation via a single platform for physical, virtual, and cloud workloads. Cristie has over 3,000 customers worldwide and more than 1,000 enterprises using its software specifically for AIX and Solaris systems.
Cristie’s software solutions helps organizations protect, recover, and move critical machines to dissimilar hardware, hypervisor and cloud environments, as part of their migration strategies and DR planning. Cristie provides instant system recovery, recovery simulation, flexible machine migration and hot standby functionality.
With the Veeam Availability Platform, Veeam enables any business to deliver the Digital Life experience users expect. It provides businesses and enterprises of all sizes with the means to ensure availability for any application and any data, across any cloud infrastructure.
According to Peter McKay, co-CEO and president at Veeam, Veeam’s strategy is to extend its leadership position in VMware and Hyper-V to deliver availability for any app, any data, and on any cloud.
While enterprises need to enhance business efficiency and security, as well as embrace the cloud, many mission-critical databases and applications are still running--and will continue to run--on AIX and Solaris. By extending support for physical workloads in these environments, in addition to Windows and Linux, enterprise customers can now replace legacy backup solutions with a single comprehensive data protection and solution from Veeam, the company says.
Based on technology developed by Cristie Software, Veeam’s support for Oracle Solaris and IBM AIX operating environments will be further enhanced and integrated into Veeam Availability Platform.
Veeam’s support for IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris operating environments will be available in 2018.
