Veeam® Software today announced the general availability of its new Veeam Availability Orchestrator – the newest addition to the Veeam Availability Platform – which enables enterprises to ensure business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) compliance.

“Enterprise customers are demanding not only Availability, but also help in ensuring compliance. In the event of a disaster, enterprises stand to lose millions in downtime, $21.8 million according to our latest Veeam Availability Report, as well as damaged reputation and lost productivity. Without having a disaster recovery plan that is up-to-date, tested and documented, it’s difficult to respond quickly when disaster strikes. With new Veeam Availability Orchestrator, enterprises can achieve a true Availability platform, reduce costs, define their DR plans, and achieve the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they are able and ready to provide business continuity, even in the worst case scenario,” said Danny Allan, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam.

Most DR failures can be tracked back to outdated and untested plans.

The rapidly increasing rate of business and technology changes makes it critical that companies update their DR plans continuously, something that only 14 percent do today, according to Forrester Research.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator tackles this problem by offering a DR orchestration solution that reduces the time, cost and effort associated with planning for and recovering from a disaster.

While many enterprises have a DR plan already in place, executing on these plans is often complex, cumbersome and time-consuming.

Expensive, error-prone manual processes are common but do not scale, resulting in DR plans that can easily become obsolete.

This results in risk to both data and application Availability, but also to compliance with industry regulations and governing bodies.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator provides an orchestration engine with planning, automated documenting and testing capabilities for preparedness and compliance, with full support for Veeam replicas.

This is consistent with the findings of the VMware Cloud Index 2012 which underscored the importance and growth of cloud computing in the region.

I had a chat with Raymond Goh, Senior Systems Engineer at Veeam in Singapore, during VMware’s vForum in Singapore.

Raymond gave me a rundown of Veeam’s solutions for data protection and comprehensive systems management for virtualisation.

Two aspects of Veeam’s offerings impressed me during our conversation.

The scalability and flexibility of its solutions means that it can cater to both large enterprises and organisations, as well as smaller SMBs.

The ability of Veeam’s solutions to work simultaneously with both VMware and Hyper-V solutions translate to cost savings for customers who operate both in a mixed virtual environment, since Veeam does not charge separately for catering to two environments.

Solutions from Veeam Software

Veeam Backup & Replication is Veeam’s solution for VMBackup, while Veeam ONE is a single solution for real-time monitoring, resource optimisation and management reporting for VMware and Hyper-V.

Veeam Software develops solutions for VMware backup, Hyper-V backup, and virtualisation management.

Veeam also provides free virtualisation tools.

The Veeam Management Pack (MP) and Smart Plug-in (SPI) extend enterprise monitoring to VMware through Microsoft System Center and HP Operations Manager.
