Veeam Software has announced that New Veeam Availability Suite 9.5, engineered to support enterprises seeking the ability to run their businesses uninterrupted as they adopt more virtualized, cloud-first technologies, is now generally available for customers across the globe.
The latest version of Veeam’s flagship solution, an integral part of Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud, heralds a new era for enterprise scalability and performance with more than 175 new features that are specifically designed to deliver enhanced agility and flexibility by ensuring 24.7.365 Availability of all workloads and applications no matter where they may reside – on-premises or in the cloud.
According to recent IDC research, data protection strategies designed for legacy client/server environments no longer meet the dynamic needs of evolving virtual computing/cloud business models, and with the average cost of downtime for the typical enterprise exceeding $100 000 per hour, they [enterprises] are actively seeking true availability solutions that can improve RTPOs (recovery time and point objectives) to deliver enhanced efficiency, agility and reliability across their entire operations.
“Veeam Availability Suite has always been at the leading-edge of innovation, and as enterprises embrace a more virtualized, cloud-first era, our approach to 24.7.365 Availability is becoming the standard-bearer for the market,” says Peter McKay, president and chief operating officer at Veeam. “As the amount of data and number of cloud workloads continues to grow at exponential rates, I am proud that with Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 we are dramatically enhancing our enterprise scalability to protect tens of thousands of VMs and petabytes of data.”
IDC also reported that in comparison to other providers, Veeam enables businesses to cover more workloads, be more aggressive on SLAs for larger sets of workloads, and meet those more aggressive SLAs more often. In fact, almost 90 percent of customers experienced far lower RTPOs with Veeam than with their previous provider and nearly three-times as many respondents had a zero backup job failure rate after Veeam as compared to before.
Building on Veeam’s class-leading performance and reliability, and now with powerful enhancements which deliver dramatically enhanced scalability, Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 is ideally suited for the needs of the modern Always-On Enterprise.
