Veeam announces Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform

1 min read Cloud
Veeam has expanded its public cloud support with the general availability of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform. This completes the company’s support for all three major public cloud providers.

Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform includes Google Cloud-Native, a web UI that can be deployed from the Google Cloud Marketplace. Automation of Google Cloud-Native snapshots can provide frequent recovery points, and rapid full- and file-level recovery options to overcome cloud data loss. The solution also uses a cost calculation feature so customers can align service-level objectives (SLOs) with budgets to avoid cloud overspend.

The offering provides a way to overcome security threats including ransomware as well as insider threats by isolating backup data from production. It also includes layered security to protect against brute force attacks with multi-factor authentication (MFA). Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform is hybrid-ready, with a portable data format and integration with Veeam Backup & Replication external repositories. This enables easy recovery outside of Google Cloud and uses flexible Veeam Universal Licensing (VUL) to simplify license management and enable Cloud Mobility.

“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. Additionally, with Veeam recently acquiring Kasten, customers can also acquire Kasten’s K10 data management platform, purpose-built for Kubernetes, through the Google Cloud Marketplace.”

Veeam just reported its results for fiscal year 2020, with the company continuing to grow its business despite the challenges of 2020. It achieved its second consecutive year of bookings over $1 billion and a 22 per cent year-over-year (YoY) increase in annual recurring revenue (ARR).

Daniel Fried, general manager and senior vice president, EMEA and worldwide channels at Veeam, explained, “The Veeam EMEA team was focused on driving simplicity and consistency in the face of evolving technology demands and uncertain economic landscapes in 2020 to achieve 22 per cent year-over-year (YoY) increase in annual recurring revenue (ARR) in Q4’20. We continued to deliver and accelerate on our Act II journey by winning the hearts and minds of our customers, deepening our relationships with partners and successfully moving to a recurring sales model.”
