With this new offering, Veeam delivers a single platform to protect, secure and manage all applications and data – cloud, virtual and physical – enabling organisations to accelerate hybrid cloud adoption.

“Veeam recognises the strategic importance of the cloud to our 400,000+ global customers and we are committed to providing broad platform support and choice,” said Danny Allan, chief technology officer and senior vice president of product strategy at Veeam. “As we now expand public cloud support even further with the general availability of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform, we have simultaneously expanded our partnership with Google Cloud, enabling Veeam to jointly engage customers through the Google Cloud Marketplace.

“As customers migrate their most business-critical workloads to the cloud, data protection and management are top of mind. With the expanded availability of Veeam’s data backup solutions on Google Cloud, customers can quickly deploy and manage these applications at global scale, while benefiting from Veeam’s capabilities in data protection.” – Manvinder Singh, Director, Partnerships at Google Cloud.

"Organisations leveraging hybrid cloud infrastructure can increase both the value and performance of their workloads by taking advantage of data movement across on-premises and cloud environments. However, this environment requires complex data protection solutions to meet customer demands for data recovery and resilience. While solving this problem has historically been the responsibility of the enterprise, providers like Veeam can help by adding granular levels of automation and data protection which allow organisations to ensure they are prepared in the event of data loss or downtime. Veeam can also provide organisations with abstracted tools to help better understand their resource usage and cost in hybrid cloud environments. When it comes to cloud infrastructure deployment, cost and data resilience remain two of the most difficult challenges facing organisations. Veeam’s updates show it is dedicated to helping organisations understand and overcome these challenges.” – Andrew Smith, Research Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC
