Panzura, the leader in enterprise hybrid cloud NAS and multi-cloud data management, and Veeam Software, the leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise™ announced that Panzura Freedom NAS has achieved Veeam Ready certification. The new certification enables customers to create powerful new solutions for cloud native virtual machine (VM) backup and disaster recovery in any public or private cloud.
Enterprises utilizing Veeam to backup VMware or Hyper-V VMs can now use Panzura Freedom NAS to consolidate their VM backup files to any cloud of their choice. Panzura Freedom NAS consolidates unstructured data to the cloud and works with Veeam to natively present the cloud as an NFS or SMB target, dramatically simplifying integration with existing backup and recovery processes. The solution maintains a local, cached copy of the data for performant on-premises restoration, while providing customers with the scalability and durability benefits of cloud object storage.
The combination of Freedom NAS and Veeam provides enterprises with the ability to establish a secure, offsite disaster recovery solution. In the event of a disaster, VMs are secure in the cloud and can be quickly and easily restored from anywhere.
"Panzura and Veeam enable customers to back up their VMs and then natively store their backup files in the cloud of their choice," said Jason McKinney, Panzura SVP of Alliances and Channels. "Freedom NAS consolidates unstructured data in the cloud and makes it available anywhere. The VMs are protected in the cloud and can be restored from anywhere, dramatically simplifying complex backup and disaster recovery processes."
Benefits of the Veeam Ready certification include:
Ability to store Veeam backup files in any public or private cloud.
FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption provides enterprise-grade security.
WAN acceleration with integrated global dedupe and compression maximizes throughput.
Eliminates need for replication of backup images between different sites for disaster recovery.
Panzura Freedom NAS can pre-populate data in secondary location for fast restoration.
Backup files are immediately available for restoration at every location in the file system.
Veeam users enjoy the scalability and durability of the cloud for backup files.
Migration of VMs to the cloud is dramatically simplified with Veeam.
