Disaster recovery and backup software provider Veeam today announced that NetApp will be adding Veeam Availability Solutions to the NetApp global price list.

NetApp customers can purchase complete Veeam and NetApp solutions directly from NetApp and its resellers in a single transaction, enabling enterprises to leverage both 24.7.365 availability and IT simplicity.

Peter Bender, Veeam ANZ alliances head says, “Veeam's direct integration with NetApp ONTAP further enhances the powerful data management capabilities of ONTAP by enabling businesses to enhance the availability service levels of any application, for any data type on any cloud environment.

“This integration not only simplifies availability and data protection, but it also provides ways to further extract value out of business data so that organisations can focus on developing the next breakthrough technology in their respective fields."

The combination of Veeam's Availability solutions with NetApp E-series, AltaVault, ONTAP, All-Flash FAS, and hybrid cloud solution offerings, help organisations simplify IT operational management, lower costs, and attain recovery point and recovery time objectives (RTPO) of seconds – not hours and days, per legacy solutions – for all applications and data.

This agreement will equip 4,000 NetApp resellers globally to deliver NetApp/Veeam integrated Availability solutions.

“We are excited to expand the success of our NetApp alliance from product integration to a full resell agreement that includes NetApp Data Fabric solutions,” says Peter McKay, Veeam co-CEO and president.

“We are committed to our partner ecosystem and adding Veeam to the NetApp price list simplifies the process for our partners to deliver highly differentiated solutions that accelerate business transformation and drive the highest levels of performance, efficiency and 24.7.365 availability across multi-cloud environments. We are confident our Availability solutions will enhance the NetApp Data Fabric experience for our joint customers.

Users are able to leverage NetApp Snapshots in tandem with Veeam's availability and recovery capabilities to minimise data loss and downtime while implementing a more cohesive data backup, recovery and disaster recovery strategy.

This results in maximum application uptime, faster item and VM-level recoveries, increased IT efficiencies and bridges the gap to achieving availability for the always-on enterprise

Customers receive the following benefits from purchasing Veeam solutions from NetApp:

  • One-stop shop: purchase a complete NetApp and Veeam solution via a single NetApp purchase order
  • Validated solution: the assurance that the Veeam/NetApp solution has been validated, and will deliver optimal business benefits

“We are very excited to take our partnership with Veeam to the next level with our new reseller agreement,” says Henri Richard, worldwide field and customer operations EVP.

“Veeam's deep integration with ONTAP drives high levels of availability and IT simplicity across our broad portfolio of hybrid cloud data services.
