As customers deploy an increasing number of applications on HCI, data protection (DP) solutions for HCI have become more critical. To reduce management complexity and risk, most HCI customers prefer data protection solutions that are tightly integrated with their HCI systems. Such an integration greatly simplifies management and automation of backup, recovery, and archive operations. Furthermore, customers want their data protection solutions to seamlessly work with virtual machines (VMs) that are hosted on HCI systems as well as standard environments composed of self-selected components. Veeam's backup solutions work with a wide range of hyperconverged solutions from leading vendors such as Dell EMC, VMware, Nutanix, Cisco, HPE, and NetApp to provide robust data protection, availability, compliance, risk mitigation, replication, and disaster recovery.
This white paper specifically focuses on how Veeam aims to create business value for enterprise customers by ensuring the "data protection, data recoverability, data availability, and data management" — to use Veeam's own words — within hyperconverged infrastructure.
