Veeam and Alibaba Cloud – OSS Integration

Veeam and Alibaba Cloud – OSS Integration

CloudOasis  /  HalYaman


alibaba-cloud-logoWhat options will Veeam offer to protect Alibaba Cloud workloads? How do you backup Alibaba ECS (Elastic Compute Service) instances? And is possible to use Alibaba OSS (Object Storage Services) to archive your Veeam backup?

Veeam Update 4, released on 22 January, not only introduced a new product feature; but also introduced a new Cloud Services integration. In this blog, I will discuss the integration of Veeam Update 4 with Alibaba Cloud.
There are several levels of integration that Veeam offers to protect or/and utilize the Alibaba Cloud resources. The following options are available to you when you use Veeam and Alibaba Cloud:

  • Deploy Veeam as an Elastic Compute (ECS) instance from the Alibaba MarketPlace,
  • Protect Alibaba ECS instances using a Veeam Agent,
  • Integrate Veeam with Alibaba Object Storage Service (OSS),
  • Integrate Veeam with Alibaba VTL.

In this blog post, I will focus on Veeam and Alibaba OSS integration to keep the blog short and focused. On future blog posts, I will discuss Veeam Agent protection and VTL.

Veeam and Alibaba Object Storage Service (OSS) Integration

Veeam Archive/Capacity Tier is a newcomer to the Veeam suite and is included in Update 4. The good news for those customers using Alibaba Cloud is that Alibaba OSS is supported out of the box. As an Alibaba customer, you can add your OSS bucket as part of the Veeam Scale-out-backup-repository to archive your aging backup to your OSS for longer retention.
To Add your Alibaba OSS to Veeam, you must first complete these tasks:

  • Create the Alibaba OSS bucket,
  • Acquire the Bucket URL and the Access key,
  • Add Alibaba OSS as a repository.

Let’s demonstrate the process to add the OSS to the Veeam infrastructure:
The process to add Alibaba OSS to the Veeam infrastructure is very simple. The process starts by adding a new repository, as shown in the following screenshot.

After you choose the Object storage, you must select the S3 Compatible option:
Next, name the new OSS repository, then press Next to enter the Service Point URL (OSS URL) and the credentials on a form of Access Key and Secret key. See the screenshot below.

The final step in this process is to create a folder where you will save your Veeam backups. See the screenshot below.

Before you finalize the process, you take the opportunity to limit the OSS consumption. See the settings in the screenshot below.

Now press Finish to complete the process.

Summary

In this blog post, I discussed the integration of Veeam and Alibaba OSS, walking you through the steps to add Alibaba OSS to Veeam infrastructure as a repository. To use the OSS as an Archive/Capacity target, you must configure a Veeam Scale-out-Repository (SOBOR), then include the OSS part of the Capacity Tier configuration. See the screenshot below for the setup.

On a future blog post, I will keep the discussion around Veeam and Alibaba Cloud, and the topics I will discuss will be Veeam and Alibaba VTL and Alibaba ECS Agent protection. Until then, I hope this blog post helps you get started. Please don’t forget to share.

Veeam’s Ratmir Timashev On Public Cloud Backlash, Office 365 Growth And ‘Aggressive’ Acquisition Strategy

CRN  /  Mark Haranas


Veeam Co-Founder Ratmir Timashev Ready For Hybrid Cloud Battle
Backed by a whopping $500 million in new funding, Veeam has an eye-popping growth plan in 2019 that includes multiple acquisitions, driving Office 365 channel sales, and major partner investments.
“I think we’ll acquire two, three, four or five companies [in the next year],” said Ratmir Timashev, co-founder and executive vice president of sales and marketing for Veaam, in an interview with CRN. “It won’t be big companies. We’re not going to buy Commvault. It’s all about innovative technologies.”
Veeam is coming off a record-breaking 2018, with bookings totaling $963 million, up 16 percent year over year. The data protection and management software star added 48,000 new customers last year with similar growth plans in 2019.
In an interview with CRN, Timashev talks about Veeam’s fastest growth area in the company’s history, M&A strategy, the “war” for hybrid cloud dominance, and the serious issue with customers buying public cloud solutions without any backup.

Veeam & NetApp HCI (Element OS) Integration #NetAppATeam

Veeam & NetApp HCI (Element OS) Integration

vZilla  /  michaelcade


With the recent GA release of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4, the next storage integration also arrived, leveraging the Universal Storage API that was released late 2017 the list continues to grow. Here is an overview of the integration points previously I wrote about.
Functionality is covered in the post linked above, I wanted to take this time to highlight the simple process of getting your NetApp HCI or SolidFire storage added within your Veeam Backup & Replication console.
Before you begin you need to make sure you have added your vSphere environment this will unlock the Storage Infrastructure tab.
This week some of my posts are focusing on Veeam Community Edition, I will be running through the process of adding storage within this free edition, this allows even the community edition to have visibility and some control in to some of your historic snapshots that were not even created by Veeam, as well as the ability to recover some items from those snapshots.

As you can see from the above, we have a clean Veeam Backup & Replication install with our VMware environment added but in the shot above you see we have no storage integrations currently added to our Veeam Backup & Replication console. To add we need to select the Add Storage.

Next up you will see the long list of available storage integrations that are available along with the link to download any of the additional Universal Storage API plug ins. For us we can select the NetApp option below.

On this next page you will see Data ONTAP which we have covered a few times in previous posts, but the one we are interested in today is Element, Element is the operating system that is used on both SolidFire and NetApp HCI storage.

The element option is a link to the Veeam website where all plug ins can be downloaded. Authenticate with your account or create an account to see those available downloads.

Scroll down until you find the following screen, this is applicable for all Veeam Universal Storage integrations, here you will find the downloads for all.

Select and download the NetApp Element Plug-In.

The plug-in once downloaded will be in the form of a compressed file, extract this into an appropriate location.

You will see once extracted, it is an application file type that can then be ran, I always choose to run as administrator.

If you have not closed down all your Veeam Backup & Replication consoles then you will first of all get the following warning which will not let you proceed until all consoles are closed.

Next is a pretty straight forward wizard, its Veeam we wouldn’t make this complicated would we. Next.


Terms of usage, let’s make sure we all spend our time and read through this. It after all states in block capitals that this is IMPORTANT – READ CAREFULLY.

When you are happy with the terms of usage, your tray table is stowed, your seat in an upright position and your seat belt fastened you can proceed with the installation.

A note to mention is that this is going to stop some Veeam services, as a best practice you should disable your jobs before running the installation. Don’t worry it does start them again once installed. Just remember to re-enable the jobs after. In my lab I have no jobs running currently and it doesn’t take long at all.

Ok so that’s the plug-in installed on your Veeam Backup & Replication server. Pretty simple straight forward stuff.

Now let’s head back into our Veeam Backup & Replication console and we can add our NetApp HCI / SolidFire system. Follow the first four steps of the post above to get back to this stage, but this time we know we have the software downloaded and installed. First up add in your management IP of your system.

Provide the credentials to access the storage system.

The next options are around protocols available, volumes to be scanned and which of our proxies should we use or that have access to the storage array.
Volumes to scan, if you have volumes other than VMFS datastores for your VMware environment you may wish to remove them from the scanning schedule here.
Backup Proxies to use, this ensures that only certain proxies that have the capability of accessing the storage system are used. By default, all proxies will be used or attempted.

That’s it, confirm the summary of the system you are adding, once hitting finished here. Veeam is going to run a scan against the volumes for VMware VM files.

The next screen / pop up is now discovering the storage system. It’s going to scan for all VMFS volumes located on the storage array.

Another Veeam server has been orchestrating snapshots but with this instance of Veeam Backup & Replication we have the ability to look inside of those volumes and snapshots and see the VMs available for recovery options. We can also perform a level of restore against those.

I will follow up in another post what else we can do now we have our NetApp HCI system visible to our Veeam Backup & Replication server. Yes, we can backup from it and restore but there are also some more very interesting features that we can take advantage of including Veeam DataLabs.

Enhancing DRaaS with Veeam Cloud Connect and vCloud Director

Enhancing DRaaS with Veeam Cloud Connect and vCloud Director

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Anthony Spiteri

The state of disaster recovery

While many organizations have understood the importance of the 3-2-1 rule of backup in getting at least one copy of their data offsite, they have traditionally struggled to understand the value of making their critical workloads available with replication technologies. Replication and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) still predominantly focus on the Availability of Virtual machines and the services and applications that they run. The end goal is to have critical line of business applications identified, replicated and then made available in the case of a disaster.
The definition of a disaster varies depending on who you speak to, and the industry loves to use geo-scale impact events when talking about disasters, but the reality is that the failure of a single instance or application is much more likely than whole system failures. This is where Replication and Disaster Recovery as a Service becomes important, and organizations are starting to understand the critical benefits of combining offsite backup together with replication of their critical on-premises workloads.

Veeam Cloud Connect

While the cloud backup market has been flourishing, it’s true that most service providers who have been successful with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) have spent the last few years developing their Backup, Replication and Disaster Recovery as a Service offerings. With the release of Veeam Backup & Replication v8, Cloud Connect Backup was embraced by our cloud and service provider partners and became a critical part of their service offerings. With version 9, Cloud Connect Replication was added, and providers started offering Replication and Disaster Recovery as a Service.
Cloud Connect Replication was released with industry-leading network automation features, and the ability to abstract both Hyper-V and vSphere compute resources and have those resources made available for tenants to replicate workloads into service provider platforms and have them ready for full or partial disaster events. Networking is the hardest part to get right in a disaster recovery scenario and the Network Extension Appliance streamlined connectivity by simplifying networking requirements for tenants.
While Cloud Connect Replication as it stood pre-Update 4 was strong technology…it was missing one thing…

Introducing vCloud Director support for Veeam Cloud Connect Replication

VMware vCloud Director has become the de facto standard for service providers who offer Infrastructure as a Service. While always popular with top VMware Cloud Providers since its first release back in 2010, the recent enhancements with support for VMware NSX, a brand new HTML5-based user interface, together with increased interoperability, has resulted in huge growth in vCloud Director being deployed as the cloud management platform of choice.
Veeam has had a long history supporting vCloud Director, with the industry’s first support for vCloud Director-aware backups released in Veeam Backup & Replication v7. With the release of Update 4, we added support for Veeam Cloud Connect to replicate directly into vCloud Director virtual data centers, allowing both our cloud and service provider partners, and tenants alike, to take advantage of the enhancements VMware has built into the platform.

By extending Cloud Connect Replication to take advantage of vCloud Director as a way to allocate service provider cloud resources natively, we have given providers the ability to utilize the constructs of vCloud Director and have their tenants consume cloud resources easily and efficiently.

Benefits of vCloud Director with Cloud Connect Replication

By allowing tenants to consume vCloud Director resources, it allows them to take advantage of more powerful features when dealing with full disaster, or the failure of individual workloads. Not only will full or partial failovers be more transparent with the use of the vCloud Director HTML5 Tenant UI, but networking functionality will also be enhanced by tapping into VMware’s industry leasing Network Virtualization technology, NSX.
With tenants able to view and access VM replicas via the vCloud Director HTML5 UI, they will have greater visibility and access before and after failover events. The vCloud Director HTML5 UI will also allow tenants to see what is happening to workloads as they boot and interact with the guest OS directly, if required. This dramatically reduces the reliance on the service provider helpdesk and ensures that tenants are in direct control of their replicas.

From a networking point of view, being able to access the NSX Edge Gateway for replicated workloads means that tenants can take advantage of the advanced networking features available on the NSX Edge Gateway. While the existing Network Extension Appliance did a great job in offering basic network functionality, the NSX Edge offers:

  • Advanced Firewalling and NAT
  • Advanced Dynamic Routing (BGP, OSPF and more)
  • Advanced Load Balancing
  • IPsec and L2VPN
  • SSL VPN
  • SSL Certificate Services

Put all that together with the ability to manage and configure everything through the vCloud Director HTML5 UI and you start to get an understanding of how utilizing NSX via vCloud Director enhances Cloud Connect Replication for both service providers and tenants.
There are also a number of options that can be used to extend the tenant network to the service provider cloud network when actioning a partial failover. Tenants and service providers can configure custom IPsec VPNs or use the IPsec functionality of the NSX Edge Gateway to be in place prior to partial failover.
The Network Extension Appliance is still available for deployment in the same way as before Update 4 and can be used directly from within a vCloud Director virtual data center to automate the extension of a tenant network so that the failed over workload can be accessible from the tenant network, even though it resides in the service provider’s environment.

Conclusion

For Veeam Cloud & Service Providers (VCSP) that underpin their backup and replication service offerings with Veeam Cloud Connect, the addition of vCloud Director support means that there is an even stronger case to deliver replication and disaster recovery to customers. For end users, the added benefits of the vCloud Director HTML5 UI, and enhanced networking services backed by NSX, means that you are able to have more confidence in recovering from disasters, and in your ability to provide greater business continuity.

Veeam Introduces Instance Licensing | StorageReview.com – StorageReview.com

Veeam Introduces Instance Licensing | StorageReview.comStorageReview.com

(null)

by Michael Rink

Veeam is converting their subscription licenses to an instance licensing scheme. This does not affect perpetual licensing, but for the first time, Veeam will now allow customers to have both Perpetual and Instance Subscription licensing in the same centrally managed environment.

Veeam lists several products and workloads that the new instance licensing definitely applies to. For products, Veeam specifies Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup and Replication, Veeam Backup Essentials, Veeam Agents for Microsoft Windows and Linux, and Veeam Availability for AWS while leaving open the possibility of it being used with other products too. Notably, Veeam is planning to move the following product to instance licensing sometime this year: Veeam Management Pack, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, Availability, Veeam Agents for IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris. However, instance licensing is only available if those products are running on Virtual Machines – VMware, Hyper-V & Nutanix AHV, Cloud Workloads – AWS EC2 and more, Physical Servers & Workstations – Microsoft Windows and Linux, or Enterprise Applications – Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN & SAP HANA. Customers with existing subscription licenses will be converted to instance licensing when upgrading to update 4 or renewing their contract.
New customers must buy bundles of 10 licenses at a time (or 5 at a time for Backup Essentials). Veeam has a calculator to help determine how many licenses you need. Most Workloads with Enterprise Plus Edition require one license, which would be simple. However, both Enterprise and Standard require additional instances for some environments. For example, Standard Edition requires thirty licenses for ten server environments which works out to 3 licenses per server with that edition.
What benefits does this change bring to customers? It allows them to move workloads between environments without needing to buy additional licenses. Now, customers will be able to move a workload that was on a workstation to a VM and move the VM license along with it at no additional cost instead of needing to buy a new license for the new environment. Veeam is also adding support for having both Perpetual and Instance Subscription licensing in the same centrally managed environment. Veeam is also claiming to have bundled 24.7.365 Production Support for the entire term of your license at no extra cost into the new instance licensing scheme. Veeam also notes that they will not be charging additional fees for cloud workloads.

SAP HANA integrated backup is here!

SAP HANA integrated backup is here!

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Rick Vanover


SAP HANA is one of the most critical enterprise applications out there, and if you have worked with it, you know it likely runs part, if not all, of a business. In Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, we are pleased to now have native, certified SAP support for backups and recoveries directly via backint.

What problem does it solve?

SAP HANA’s in-memory database platform also requires that a backup solution be integrated and aware of the platform. This SAP HANA support helps you to have certified solutions for SAP HANA backups, reduce impact of doing backups, ensure operational consistency for backups, and leverage all of the additional capabilities that Veeam Availability Suite has to offer. This also includes point-in-time restores, database integrity checks, storage efficiencies such as compression and deduplication as well.
This milestone comes after years of organizations wanting Veeam backups with their SAP installations. We spent many years advocating on backing up SAP with BRTOOLS and leveraging image-based backups as well to prepare for tests. Now, the story becomes even stronger with support for Veeam to drive backint backups from SAP and store them in a Veeam repository. Specifically, this means that a backint backup can happen for SAP HANA and Veeam can manage the storage of that backup. It is important to note now that the Veeam SAP Plug-In, which makes this native support work, is also supported for use with SAP HANA on Microsoft Azure.

How does it work?

The Veeam Plug-In for SAP HANA becomes a target available for native backups with SAP HANA Studio for backups of a few types: file-based backups, snapshots and backint backups. When backups are performed in SAP HANA Studio, a number of different types and targets can be selected. This is all native within the SAP HANA application and SAP HANA tools like SAP HANA Studio, SAP HANA Cockpit or SQL based command line entries. These include file backups (plain copies of files) and complete data backups using backint. Backint is an API framework that allows 3rd-party tools (such as Veeam) to directly connect the backup infrastructure to the SAP HANA database. The backint backup is configured to have a backup interval set in SAP HANA Studio, and that interval can be very small – such as 5 minutes. It is also recommended to do the backup with log backups (again, configured in SAP HANA Studio) to enable more granular restores which will be covered a bit later on.
SAP HANA can also call snapshots to its own application, while it does not have consistency or corruption checks – snapshots are a great addition to the overall backup strategy. By most common perspectives, backint is the best approach for backing up SAP HANA systems but using the snapshots can also add more options for recovery. The plug-in data flow for a backint backup as implemented in Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 is shown in the figure below:

One of the key benefits of doing a backint backup of SAP HANA is that you can do direct restores to a specific point in time – either from snapshots or from the backint backups with point-in-time recovery. This is very important when considering how critical SAP HANA is to many organizations. So, when it comes to how often a backup is done, select the interval that works for your organization’s requirements and make sure the option to enable automatic log backup is selected as well.

Bring on the Enterprise applications!

Application support is a recent trend here at Veeam, and I do not expect this to slow down any time soon! The SAP HANA Plug-In support, along with the Oracle RMAN plug-in, are two big steps in bringing application support to Veeam for critical, enterprise applications. You can find more information on Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 here.

Veeam revenue edges up in 2018; acquisitions possible in 2019 – TechTarget

Veeam revenue edges up in 2018; acquisitions possible in 2019 – TechTarget

(null)


Veeam Software narrowly missed its goal to become a $1 billion revenue company in 2018, falling $37 million shy and probably six months short.
Veeam founder and executive vice president Ratmir Timashev said Veeam finished 2018 with $963 million in bookings revenue after 16% growth over 2017. Timashev said he expects to break $1 billion for the trailing 12 months by the end of the second quarter of 2019.
Timashev said it was a “slight disappointment” to miss the billion-dollar Veeam revenue goal for the year. He said Veeam revenue came up a bit short because it “under invested” in its traditional SMB and commercial markets to concentrate on moving into the enterprise. But he predicted the enterprise strategy — including reseller deals with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, NetApp and Lenovo — will lead to greater growth in the long run.
The Veeam revenue growth also slowed last year, after 36% growth during 2017. Fresh off a $500 million investment from Insight Venture Partners in January, Timashev said privately held Veeam will pursue acquisitions and chase more multi-cloud customers to grow in 2019.
“For us, 2019 is the most important year in the history of the company,” Timashev said. That’s because of a shift in the industry to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud use, and the battle to win that market. Timashev said the latest update to Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 plays into that strategy. Update 4 focused on facilitating tiering and migrating data into public clouds.

New executive team, new dreams ahead

Veeam has a slightly new look to its executive team in early 2019 than it had at the start of 2018, although the new bosses are really the same as the old bosses. The departure of co-CEO Peter McKay in October left Timashev’s founder partner Andrei Baronov as the lone CEO. Baronov runs product strategy, research and development. Timashev handles sales and marketing in place of McKay, and executive vice president of operations William Largent remains in charge of legal and finance.
Largent joined Veeam in 2008 – two years after Timashev and Baronov started the company – and the trio worked together at Aelita Software before that. All three have held the Veeam CEO job during the company’s lifetime.
Veeam has been profitable since 2009, Timashev said. He said the vendor had $800 million in cash and investments before the recent half-billion dollar investment from Insight Venture Partners. But it has not invested much in acquisitions over the years. In late 2017, Veeam bought AWS data protection company N2WS in its first acquisition in 10 years and it has not bought another company since then.

Headshot of Veeam's Ratmir Timashev

Ratmir Timashev

That is expected to change in 2019. Timashev would not disclose potential acquisition targets but said Veeam has some gaps in cloud data management. Other potential technologies Veeam could acquire include analytics, machine learning/artificial intelligence, data compliance and data governance.
Container protection is another area Veeam is exploring in 2019, following inquiries from customers.
Veeam is also expanding internally. The vendor plans to add 500 software developers to its research and development office in Prague. Veeam has about 3,500 employees worldwide with plans to add an additional 1,000 this year.
Timashev said Veeam’s Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is its “fastest growing product of all time.” About 55,000 organizations have downloaded the Office 365 backup, representing more than 7 million user mailboxes, according to Veeam.
Timashev said he expects $175 million in Veeam revenue from its enterprise hardware customers in 2019. He said Veeam will continue to partner with hardware vendors rather than follow rivals Commvault, Veritas and Dell EMC into selling branded appliances.

CloudOasis  /  HalYaman


Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 12.16.38 pmAre you thinking of backing up your Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online and wish to size your backup accurately? Is there any way to measure the total size of your consumed Exchange Online storage, Change rate and more?

The answers to these questions are essential when it comes to sizing backup solutions. You must know the storage needed to store the backed up data and the backup solution components (Server roles).
In the era of Software as a Service (SaaS), it’s challenging to acquire this information, and then to get access to it. This makes solution sizing a challenging exercise for any business.

The Scenario

Let us consider the following scenario to understand the challenge that a business faces when they want to undertake sizing and backup of their Exchange Online. To use a specific example, I will consider the Veeam Backup for Office 365 product to simplify the discussion.
To size a Veeam backup repository, you need several numbers to calculate the total size. They are:

  • The total size of the current mailboxes (Active Mailboxes); and
  • Change rate.

The good news is that Microsoft offers several ways to pull this info from Office 365; you can use either PowerShell, or MS Graph API.
In this example, I will discuss the MS Graph API to show you how to easily retrieve the mailbox size and change rate, and more, to size the Veeam Backup Repository and the Veeam Backup infrastructure.

Veeam VBO Sizing

Veeam Software has released a great sizing guide to show you how to size the Veeam Backup for Office 365 Exchange Online. To access the guide, press this link.
But how great would it be if we could somehow automate the process! Let’s consider the Microsoft Graph APIs with two Graph API URLs (GET commands), we can get all the information we need to size the Veeam VBO repository and the infrastructure. Have a look at these two URLs:

From those two commands, we can extract all the information we need to size these Veeam items:

  • Backup Repository size;
  • Number of Servers needed;
  • Number of Proxies; and
  • Nnumber of jobs.

VBO Sizing WebApp

Taking the information from the MS Graph API and the Veeam VBO sizing guide, I asked myself this. “How can I can build a WebApp that can be accessed from any web-enabled device, then connect to the tenant Office 365 and draw down the necessary information on behalf of the tenant, and then allow the tenant to choose the retention period?”
All of that has already been assembled in a very small WebApp that you can use this link to access. You need only your Microsoft account to access your tenant Office 365 subscription.

How the WebApp works

When accessing the WebApp link, you will be greeted by a Connect Button. This will redirect you to the Microsoft Azure login page, a standard Microsoft secure Azure login to acquire the Graph token.
After the token has been retrieved, The WebApp sends several GET Restful API commands to acquire the following information:

With that information acquired, the WebApp will help with sizing the Veeam Backup Repository, and also return the number of Proxies, Repositories, VBO server and Jobs you need to fully protect your Exchange Online.

Conclusion

The WebApp is a tool that I wanted to implement to help me to get an initial understanding of the size of the Exchange Online deployment for my customers and service providers. With this WebApp, the data gathering and the sizing on the Veeam VBO infrastructure has become simple and fast. This helps customers to size their storage and calculate their budget before they start the sales cycle.
Over the following days I will be working on version two of the WebApp. I will be adding more functionality, like estimating the size of the OneDrive and SharePoint drives, and other exciting features. So, if you have any feedback or suggestions, they will be most welcome.

Want a Visio of your lab? Veeam ONE can do it for you!

Want a Visio of your lab? Veeam ONE can do it for you!

Notes from MWhite  /  Michael White


Hi all,
I mentioned, when talking with a customer, about how I had to update my Visio of my home lab with the changes I had done recently. There were groans and I asked why.  The amount of work to update Visio diagrams.  I said there was very little work as I had a tool that did the work. I said that Veeam ONE can do a Visio of your VMware infrastructure and they laughed.  So here we go.
You will need a Windows machine with Visio installed.

  • First you should access the Veeam ONE Reporter – which is normally https://FQDN:1239. After authentication you will see a collection of reports.

  • The report that has an output that we can use with Visio is in the Offline Reports folder – seen near the end of the list.
  • When you look into the Offline Reports folder you see what we are after!

  • So click on the Infrastructure Overview (Visio) report name.

  • We need to confirm the scope of operations.  So click on the blue Virtual Infrastructure link.

  • I can see my infrastructure is all selected so that is good.  Now we can use OK to return.
  • Now if you want VMs included in your diagram, and I do, you can select the VM checkbox.

  • Once your Include VMs is checked, or not checked, you can hit the Preview button.
  • Once you hit that button, you will see a brief collecting data dialog, or if you have a very big lab it will take a little longer.  One it is done you will have a file downloaded.

  • No matter how hard you try and load this file into Visio it will not work. You must download the Veeam Report Viewer.  Which, BTW, is not a viewer.  It is a translate tool.  You need to download it and install it where Visio is. Also move the infrastructure.vmr where the Viewer and Visio is.

  • The viewer installs very fast and leaves an icon on your desktop.

  • Start up the tool, and you should see something like below.

  • You can see I used it once already successfully.  Lets use the File \ Open option to load the infrastructure.vmr file.
  • It takes a few minutes, but we are waiting for it to say done. Depending on the size and complexity of your environment it could take a few minutes.

  • Once it is done it will pop up Visio.  But put it away for now.

  • We want to see the viewer to make sure it was a success.  After all, this is not about one diagram but a multiple of them!

  • Now you change to the following folder on the machine where the Viewer and Visio were. Each day you run the Viewer it will put another folder into the My Veeam Reports folder. As you can see below it is the Valentine’s day folder we are in.

  • The Index is an overview, and the config one shows what is powered up or not but the others are what you think.  And they print nice.

So now you have Visios of your lab or infrastructure, it may have took you a few minutes to get it all done the first time, but the second or third is much faster.
BTW, I did this with Update 4 of Veeam ONE, and 6.7 U1 of vSphere.

How to improve security with Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore

How to improve security with Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Michael Cade


Today, ransomware and malware attacks are top of mind for every business. In fact, no business, large or small is immune. What’s even more concerning is that ransomware attacks are increasing worldwide at an alarming rate, and because of this, many of you have expressed concern. In a recent study administered by ESG, 70% of Veeam customers indicated malicious malware and virus contamination are major concerns for their businesses (source: ESG Data Protection Landscape Survey).
There are obviously multiple ways your environment can be infected by malware; however, do you currently have an easy way to scan backups for threats before introducing them to production? If not, Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore is the perfect solution for secure data recovery!
The premise behind Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore is to provide users an optional, fully-integrated anti-virus scan step as part of any chosen recovery process. This feature, included in the latest Veeam Backup & Replication Update 4 addresses the problems associated with managing malicious malware by providing the ability to assure any of your copy data that you want or need to recover into production is in a good state and malware free. To be clear, this is NOT a prevention of an attack, but instead it’s a new, patent-pending unique way of remediating an attack arising from malware hidden in your backup data, and also to provide you additional confidence that a threat has been properly neutralized and no longer exists within your environment.
Sounds valuable? If so, keep reading.

Recovery mode options

Veeam offers a number of unique recovery processes for different scenarios and Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore is simply an optional enhancement included in many of these recovery processes to make for a truly secure data recovery. It’s important to note though that Secure Restore is not a required, added step as part of a restore. Instead, it’s an optional anti-virus scan that is available to put into action quickly if and when a user suspects a specific backup is infected by malware, or wants to proceed with caution to ensure their production environment remains virus-free following a restore.

Workflow

The workflow for Secure Restore is the same regardless of the specific recovery scenario used.

  1. Select the restore mode
  2. Choose the workload you need to recover
  3. Specify the desired restore point
  4. Enable Secure Restore within the wizard

Once Secure Restore is enabled you are presented with a few options on how to proceed when an infection has been detected. For example, with an Entire VM recovery, you can choose to continue the recovery process but disable the network adapters on the virtual machine or choose to abort the VM recovery process. In the event an actual infection is identified, you also have a third option to continue scanning the whole file system to protect against other threats to notify the third-party antivirus to continue scanning, to get visibility to any other threats residing in your backups.

As you work inside the wizard and the recovery process starts, the first part of the recovery process is to select the backup file and mount its disks to the mount server which contains the antivirus software and the latest virus definitions (not owned by Veeam). Veeam will then trigger an antivirus scan against the restored disks. For those of you familiar with Veeam, this is the same process leveraged with Veeam file level recovery. Currently, Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore has built-in, direct integrations with Microsoft Windows Defender, ESET NOD32 Smart Security, and Symantec Protection Engine to provide virus scanning, however, any antivirus software with CMD support can also interface with Secure Restore.

As a virus scan walks the mounted volumes to check for infections, this is the first part of the Secure Restore process. If an infection is found, then Secure Restore will default to the choice you selected in the recovery wizard and either abort the recovery or continue with the recovery but disable the network interfaces on the machine. In addition, you will have access to a portion of the antivirus scan log from the recovery session to get a clear understanding of what infection has been found and where to locate it on the machine’s file system.

This particular walkthrough is highlighting the virtual machine recovery aspect. Next, by logging into the Virtual Center, you can navigate to the machine and notice that the network interfaces have been disconnected, providing you the ability to login through the console and troubleshoot the files as necessary.

To quickly summarise the steps that we have walked through for the use case mentioned at the beginning, here they are in a diagram:

SureBackup

Probably my favourite part of this new feature is how Secure Restore fits within SureBackup, yet another powerful feature of Veeam DataLabs. For those of you unfamiliar with SureBackup, you can check out what you can achieve with this feature here.
SureBackup is a Veeam technology that allows you to automatically test VM backups and validate recoverability. This task automatically boots VMs in an isolated Virtual Lab environment, executes health checks for the VM backups and provides a status report to your mailbox. With the addition of Secure Restore as an option, we can now offer an automated and scheduled approach to scan your backups for infections with the antivirus software of your choice to ensure the most secure data recovery process.

PowerShell

Finally, it’s important to note that the options for Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore are also fully configurable through PowerShell, which means that if you automate recovery processes via a third-party integration or portal, then you are also able to take advantage of this.

American Standard Leverages ExaGrid’s Scale-Out Architecture as Data Growth Nearly Triples Storage Requirements – Business Wire

American Standard Leverages ExaGrid’s Scale-Out Architecture as Data Growth Nearly Triples Storage Requirements – Business Wire

“veeam” – Google News

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.–()–ExaGrid®, a leading provider of intelligent hyperconverged storage for backup, today announced that since 2009, ExaGrid has continued to provide American Standard with fast and reliable data backups and restores throughout the evolution of the company’s IT environment and substantial data growth.

A subsidiary of LIXIL, American Standard has innovated and created residential and commercial products for kitchen and bath for over 140 years.
American Standard has backed up its data to ExaGrid systems for nearly a decade, and ExaGrid has kept backups efficient and reliable throughout the evolution of American Standards’ IT environment and its major data growth resulting from the company becoming acquired by LIXIL Water Technology Americas (LWTA), a Tokyo-based global leader in housing and building materials, products, and services. “Since the acquisition, our data has grown almost 20% each year. LIXIL has continued to acquire other companies and their data has been migrated into our environment, resulting in significant data growth,” said Ted Green, American Standard’s lead information technology engineer.
ExaGrid’s data deduplication has maximized disk space and reduced rack space in American Standard’s data centers. “ExaGrid is very effective at reducing our backup storage footprint, allowing us to maximize disk space,” said Steve Pudimott, manager of IT services for American Standard. “We’ve always had one dedicated rack for ExaGrid. Now it has shrunk to half a rack at our production data center. That’s pretty significant, and it’s saved us on costs since we pay for power in our data center because it’s a colocation. Without deduplication, we’d probably need well over two racks by now, but we’ve been able to decrease from one rack to just half of a rack. The newer models of ExaGrid appliances are much smaller and shorter, so that has also helped us save on rack space, too,” added Green.
Recently, American Standard decided to virtualize its environment, shifting much of it over to VMware and installing Veeam to manage its virtual backups. ExaGrid integrates seamlessly with all of the most frequently used backup applications, including Veeam, which American Standard uses to back up its virtual environment, and Veritas NetBackup, which is used for the remaining physical servers. “At the time that we virtualized, our ExaGrid support engineer helped us configure our system to work with Veeam, and that was an easy process. When we installed Veritas NetBackup 16 recently on one of our servers, it took all of ten minutes to get it working with ExaGrid, and the ExaGrid plugin to work with NetBackup’s OST has been a great feature that has significantly sped up our backups,” said Green.
Since the initial installation of the first ExaGrid systems, Green has taken advantage of ExaGrid’s trade-in program, which allows customers to swap out older-model appliances for new ones at a discounted rate. “The capacity at both our production site and our disaster recovery (DR) site have doubled, if not tripled, since we first installed ExaGrid, so we have added appliances over the years. Working with ExaGrid’s sales and customer support teams is a major reason why we have continued to use ExaGrid for so many years.”
Read the complete American Standard customer success story to learn more about the company’s experience using ExaGrid.
ExaGrid’s published customer success stories and enterprise stories number over 360, more than all other vendors in the space combined. These stories demonstrate how satisfied customers are with ExaGrid’s unique architectural approach, differentiated product, and unrivalled customer support. Customers consistently state that not only is the product best-in-class, but ‘it just works.’
About ExaGrid
ExaGrid provides intelligent hyperconverged storage for backup with data deduplication, a unique landing zone, and scale-out architecture. ExaGrid’s landing zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. Its scale-out architecture includes full appliances in a scale-out system and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades.

IBM Think – it’s all about the Veeam Intelligent Data Management

IBM Think – it’s all about the Veeam Intelligent Data Management

Veeam Executive Blog – The Availability Lounge  /  Carey Stanton

Two weeks ago, IBM was a launch partner with Veeam for the release of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 with support for IBM Cloud Object Storage. This week, Veeam is showcasing our combined solution offerings for Intelligent Data Management with IBM at IBM’s worldwide THINK event in San Francisco.
So, what do we expect from this week at IBM Think? For one, it’s all about the data. But not just data and how to deal with the crushing growth of data that all companies struggle with. This event focuses on how you manage data strategically and what you can do with it to drive business.
A few years ago, many believed that the cloud’s most common use case for data was backup or disaster recovery. Today, it is the unlockable value of data, and the added agility of that data (enabled by it being in a cloud), and what you can learn from it with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
IBM’s extensive IBM Cloud platform, with Watson, is all about helping you build a cloud strategy for your data and applications that helps you migrate and modernize, do more with your data and manage your multi-cloud investment.
Don Boulia, IBM Cloud General Manager, told the worldwide Veeam audience on our Veeam Update 4 broadcast that his role was to help as many companies to the cloud as he can, and to make it as quick, easy and painless as possible. One of the IBM-Veeam synergies Don pointed out was Veeam’s role in helping customers move to the cloud, allowing IBM Cloud to deliver the same data protection and resiliency that companies have come to expect from managing on-premises data.
IBM and Veeam are Better Together and a logical choice for harnessing the power of the cloud for data Availability:

  • IBM’s broader Global Services organization has been accelerating the business value of IT (and its data) for years, so coupling IBM Cloud and Veeam’s Intelligent Data Management capabilities makes sense.
  • IBM’s Resiliency Services provide the expertise that is the real difference between simply ensuring the recoverability of data and the assurance of continuity of operations during crises.
  • And of course, the data you bring to the cloud becomes more valuable once it is there. IBM Cloud’s artificial intelligence unlocks the value hidden in data, not just mining insights, but actually putting them to work for you with machine learning.

The more valuable the data, the more it is worth protecting with Veeam solutions. IBM Think gives Veeam a chance to show what we can do with and for IBM customers in their data center, on IBM Cloud and across a multi-cloud environment.

  • Veeam Availability Suite, which is quickly and easily provisioned directly from the IBM Cloud portal, helps customers migrate to and keep data available in the hybrid cloud regardless of its location.
  • Veeam support for IBM Cloud Object Storage provided efficient tiered strategy efficiently long-term data retention with unlimited scale.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 on IBM Cloud eliminates the risk of losing access and control over your Office 365 data, allowing you to back up and retain highly-valuable online Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business data.
  • IBM Global Service offerings provide experts for fully-managed Veeam backup services.

So, if you are at IBM Think this week, think about how IBM and Veeam are Better Together for the data that drives your business. Come see us and let’s talk about how IBM and Veeam can protect your valuable data assets wherever it is today and where it will be tomorrow.

Streamlined data protection for the healthcare data center

Streamlined data protection for the healthcare data center

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Jonathan Butz


When I was a part-time CTO for hospitals prior to joining Veeam, I was focused on outcomes: understanding how technology choices ultimately affect the clinical and patient experience with a goal of improved patient outcomes and higher satisfaction. I said as much to a West Coast health system CIO when presenting a strategy, and he said to look even further: the true outcome of technology choice in healthcare is the health and well-being of the community at large.
That has been with me ever since and helped shape Veeam’s mission in healthcare — improving the health of our communities by assuring Availability of your healthcare information with simple, reliable, flexible backup and recovery software. Wherever your applications and data go, whatever platform whether on-premises or in the cloud, we protect it easily so your team can focus on the clinical experience and the health of your communities.

Profile of Veeam’s healthcare customers


Fig. 1: Veeam Top Thirty Customers’ EHR Platforms

Veeam healthcare highlights:

  • 12,000+ healthcare customers worldwide
  • 4,300+ healthcare customers in North America
  • 150,000+ clinical applications protected
  • 30-40% TCO reduction reported by customers
  • Net Promoter Score nearly 3x the industry average over 10 years

Our top thirty customers run every major EHR platform and report substantial savings for the systems we protect. They love our software because it is powerful, easy, and we deliver piece of mind for a critical function: the last line of defense against failure of all kinds. Our customers have used the savings realized by investment in Veeam software to purchase new MRI machines that directly affect the health of the communities they serve. Here are a few other examples: Greenville Health, Roswell Park Cancer Inst, Rochelle Community Hospital, Butler Health.

HIMSS19: Foundations need modernization too

More than 45,000 healthcare professionals will assemble in Orlando for HIMSS19 2/11-2/15 to discuss every challenge of healthcare transformation from care and payment optimization to clinical application strategy and healthcare information security.
Amid the trending topics of artificial intelligence, genomics, interoperability, and the omnipresent challenges of mergers and acquisitions, we must also give time to technology platform basics: agile infrastructure consumption models, rapid scale, data and application portability to cloud, data and information stewardship, business continuity, and assured recovery. Those all sound like table stakes: critical functions that we should have well in hand.
Much of it is not well in hand, however, surveys continue to report gaps in business continuity plans, phishing and ransomware continue to cause service interruptions, and organic disruptive events will continue to affect the Availability of applications and the delivery of care regardless of the technology investments we make. Add to this the further adoption of off-premises platform options from Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, Software as a Service applications such as Microsoft Exchange Online, and we require new solutions and practices to ensure protection of healthcare information and the Availability of related clinical applications.

Closing thoughts

Foundations are easy to lose sight of, overshadowed by more visible elements above, but without attention and modernization, all that is built upon them is at risk.
Please visit us at HIMSS19 Booth #4191 to hear our story and see for yourself how we can make a difference in your data center and the community you serve.

Veeam Availability Orchestrator v1.0 Installation Overview

Veeam Availability Orchestrator v1.0 Installation Overview

Notes from MWhite  /  Michael White

It is important to understand the VAO installation overview to help you be successful with VAO quicker.  More info on VAO can be found in the release notes. The docs are here – sorry I cannot make a link right to the VAO docs.  You can find versions of supported OS or databases in it as well as get a good idea on resource levels of the VAO servers (RAM and memory).

Things to have ready

  • A VM ready for VAO to be installed within.
  • Information on SQL server to be used by VAO, and credentials in the form of service account.
  • Any existing VBR servers, and credentials for them
  • A Domain Controller to be replicated to the DR side for inclusion in test failovers, and it should have a vSphere tag that is known.
  • Applications to be protected should have a vSphere tag applied to all the VMs. For example, if you are going to protect Exchange, and it has 24 VM’s each should have a tag that says something like DR-Exchange. I suggest initially only protect one application and learn from how that goes so you can do the rest of your applications more easily, and more successfully too.
  • You should have a VMware Distributed switch at the DR site with a private and non-routing VLAN or network and this switch should be mounted on each host in the DR site. This vDS is a recommendation but is not required.

Outline

  1. Install VAO
    1. Confirm connected to vCenter (in DR)
    2. If appropriate, connect to vCenter in production too.
    3. Confirm connected to external VBR (in production too possibly but in DR for certain)
    4. Configure SMTP
    5. Configure email destinations
  2. Use the DR site to:
    1. VBR to replicate the Domain Controller to the DR site.
    2. Use the DR site VBR to replicate the first Application you wish to protect.
    3. Create virtual labs in DR.
  3. Log into VAO
  4. Confirm you see the Virtual Labs in Components – there can be up to 1.5 hours of delay between assigning a tag and seeing it in VAO – after the first config.
  5. Confirm you see the tagged VMs in Components.
  6. Customize the Plan Steps as necessary, such as Add scripts, or tweak config such as number of retries.
  7. Add a Lab Group for any necessary support services – like AD to your Virtual Lab.
  8. Test the Virtual Lab, make sure both the appliance and any lab services start successfully.
  9. Create failover plan
  10. Do a readiness check.
  11. Do a test failover. Make sure it works.  A key part of a successful test failover is having all of the necessary VMs inside the test.  For example, Exchange will not start if a domain controller is
  12. Do a real failover.

You now have successful VAO install and have had some success working with VAO.  Hopefully you have learned so that now you can protect more applications successfully. It is important to understand that you may need to tune your plan to make sure it as fast as it can be.  The outage windows sometimes are small!
Let me know if you have questions, or comments, or you would like to see VAO articles on specific things (my VAO related articles can all be found using this tag – VAO_Tech).

Veeam Boosts Partner Program Ahead of VeeamOn 2019 Conference – ChannelE2E

Veeam Boosts Partner Program Ahead of VeeamOn 2019 Conference – ChannelE2E

“veeam” – Google News

Veeam has bolstered its North American ProPartner program with new training, marketing and financial perks. The enhancements surface amid intensifying competition across the cloud backup, disaster recovery and data protection markets.

Veeam pointed to these partner program enhancements, among others:

  • Veeam IQ: Formally called Veeam University, this is a partner-facing training platform. It features a new Learning Management System (LMS) for partner education.
  • Marketing Investments: This includes a new Marketing Concierge service – a dedicated marketing consultant group available to collaborate with partners to build multi-touch campaigns that focus on digital marketing tactics.  
  • Accelerated Growth Rebates for Gold and Platinum Partners: Partners that overachieve on a quarterly or annual basis may receive additional accelerators and back-end rebates.
  • New Partner Perks and Incentives: This program recognizes partners for completing particular tasks, such as co-selling with an alliance, taking a certification, completing a POC, or running a competitive campaign.

In a prepared statement, James Mundle, VP of worldwide channels at Veeam, said:

“Together with our partners, Veeam has experienced unprecedented growth since inception. As the adoption of cloud-based business models continues to grow, and programs become more complex, the constant is that we always keep the customer experience across all segments as our top priority, delivering the best products, solutions, and services in a way they can consume them better and more efficiently than any other technology company.”

Veeam: Funding, Growth, Competition

The partner program enhancements arrive one month after private equity firm Insight Venture Partners and other investors pumped $500 million into Veeam.
No doubt, Veeam has been in growth mode. The privately held company generates about $1 billion in annual sales, and has more than 325,000 customers worldwide. The company’s overall business model is channel-centric, with a heavy dependence on cloud services providers (CSPs) and MSPs, along with strategic alliances (Cisco, HP Enterprise, others) up in the enterprise.
Still, competition is intensifying in the data protection market. Well-funded names like CohesityDruva, and Rubrik are grabbing market share in cloud-centric data protection and storage markets. And Datto has momentum with MSPs in the SMB sector. Plus, private equity firms are seeking BDR companies to bolt onto their MSP-centric software platforms.

MSPs and SMB Data Protection

Competition is particularly fierce in the SMB data protection market. In addition to Datto, rivals like Axcient, StorageCraft and the Barracuda MSP business have a critical mass of partners.
Entrenched companies also are making talent and technology investments. Most notably, Commvault announced a new CEO yesterday after a 10-month search for a new leader.
Amid all those competitive moves, anecdotal evidence says Veeam is still growing. The big question is whether the company can maintain its growth rates — while incentivizing partners along the way.
It’s a safe bet Veeam will share more partner program milestones during the company’s VeeamOn 2019 conference in May.

Take your business beyond Availability with DataLabs

Take your business beyond Availability with DataLabs

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Vic Cleary


Beyond traditional backup use cases, one of the most important capabilities Veeam Backup & Replication provides you as a customer is the ability to proactively leverage data. It also allows you to be smarter about what you do with the gold mine of data you have wrapped up in backups that are sitting idle and to improve operational efficiencies, increase speed to market and even leverage existing data to improve compliance and security.
Veeam Backup & Replication Update 4, along with a huge payload of other features, focuses on the leveraging of data and transitioning from being reactive to becoming more proactive with this valuable resource. This proactivity comes in the form of our new Veeam DataLabs. A few of Veeam DataLabs’ capabilities have been customer favorites for years, including SureBackup and SureReplica to verify recoverability, as well as On-Demand Sandbox to speed up application deployment and address several DevOps and Dev Test concerns. Now, Update 4 introduces Veeam DataLabs Staged Restore and Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore to address compliance and security use cases as well. Find out more about Veeam DataLabs.

Veeam DataLabs Staged Restore

What business can afford a data breach? Today, a breach often includes a guaranteed barrage of negative publicity, loss of trust from loyal customers, as well as the possibility of a decrease in future business, not to mention, fines!
According to a recent study, the average total cost of a data breach is $3.86 million, which is a 6.4% increase over 2017 (Source: 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study: Global Overview, July 2018, conducted by Ponemon Institute LLC). This is why our first and most important new Veeam DataLabs use case focuses on GDPR and Article 17 (the right to erasure). This article applies to many of our customers who hold data from European citizens (regardless of their organization’s geographic location) and therefore must adhere to new data-compliance regulations or face a fine of up to 3% of their global turnover.
In the event that you lose critical data in production and are forced to restore the data, we are hopeful that backups exist, which have been tested with SureBackup to verify that the VM, application and OS are in good working order. SureBackup provides Veeam customers with peace of mind and reassurance that their backups have been successfully booted and tested for recoverability. However, while verifying backup recoverability is an effective first step to recovery, as of May of 2018, most businesses still need an effective way to also ensure compliance during this process. What if the backup being restored contains sensitive data protected by GDPR regulations? Leveraging the capabilities of Veeam DataLabs Staged Restore helps simplify this process.
Let’s look at this process before and after the introduction of GDPR and use a construction company as an example. Suppose this company is contractually required to keep data related to a new housing development for 25 or more years. This data may include supporting emails, contacts, reports, quotes, inquiries, etc. associated with the build. Eventually, the company may use this data to determine which showrooms were most popular, which customers preferred specific designs, etc. to improve their business and marketing tactics. In this case, the company would retain this data in their backups, which is permitted by GDPR regulations; however, any of the data that customers have requested to be removed and flagged for erasure under the “right to be forgotten” clause should never return to a production environment or workflow.
Therefore, before May 2018 and the introduction of GDPR, if the construction company needed to restore a backup including this data, the restore process would be managed in the following manner:

Fast forwarding to May 25, 2018, the next image shows how Veeam DataLabs Staged Restore helps the construction company perform a restore. It shows how they simultaneously remain compliant with GDPR’s Article 17 “Right to be Forgotten,” ensuring the data is successfully restored, but also that all sensitive data included in the backup is effectively removed and therefore never returns to the production environment.

Another prevalent use case often performed by our users is testing and updating patches. Most users prefer to test their patches and roll them out to a production environment with SureBackup. Before Update 4, users would oftentimes lose their tests and replicate within their production environment. Using Veeam DataLabs Staged Restore, this action can be done as part of the restore, with changes within the production environment, therefore removing a redundant step.

Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore

Like compliance, we know that malware is also a major concern. In 2017, there was a significant increase in press coverage around the security of private and sensitive data, most of which was due to the increased threat of ransomware. More data was lost or stolen in the first half of 2017 (1.9 billion records) than in ALL of 2016 (1.37 billion) and that was before the most significant breaches of the year (Source: Breach Level Index).
And the truth is, malicious attacks won’t stop any time soon. Ransomware attacks are predicted to continue in frequency and aggression as they become more sophisticated and harder to stop, and this issue has proven to be top-of-mind for Veeam customers. In fact, a recent ESG study indicated that 70% of our customers are concerned about their backups being contaminated (Source: ESG Master Survey Results, 2018 Data Protection Landscape Survey, October 2018).
Ransomware is a form of malicious malware that takes systems and data hostage, either by locking the user out completely or locking files so they can’t be accessed. The most common action by hackers is to encrypt files and force users to pay a ransom via cryptocurrency to get the decryption key.
Typically delivered through a link, ransomware is usually activated once a user clicks a link, which makes it possible for the virus to take over and spread to the rest of the corporate network.
The customer is then given instructions on how to send payment. Other, more aggressive forms of ransomware exploit security holes to infect systems. NotPetya and WannaCry were two such attacks this year.
It’s important to note that Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore does not prevent ransomware or other malicious attacks. However, this unique, patent-pending capability allows for a pre-staging scan from third-party, anti-virus integrations. This means that when a customer attempts to recover their files, they can verify that their backups are safe and virus-free before recovering, ultimately ensuring the threat has been removed from their network.
For ease of articulating this and the associated issues and problems, the diagram below depicts a typical timeline when a customer is hit with a zero-day attack. Currently, the biggest problem in the industry is that anti-virus vendors lack an adequate fix for a zero-day attack.

In this common timeline example, how do organizations know how much and which data has been compromised and unreadable?
With Update 4, as an added optional step for all non-granular restores inside the restore wizard, Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore will allow customers to scan backups before restoring them to production. The wizard will also include additional options if an infection is identified.
For additional assurance, this process allows for the mount server’s anti-virus software to be fully up to date with virus definitions, and multiple anti-virus vendors can perform a scan.

In the diagram above, you can see that the initial step is to select the restore point required on the Veeam management server. When the backup file is located, disks for the infected machine(s) are mounted to the Veeam mount server. The next stage then allows the anti-virus software to perform a scan against the attached disk.
As part of the recovery wizard, you then have three response options:

  1. If no infections are found, you can continue with the restore
  2. If an infection is found, but you need to proceed, Veeam will disable the network adapters for further investigation
  3. If an infection is found, you can abort the recovery

This feature provides organizations the ability to recover back to a safe, uncompromised backup restore point. The ability to pinpoint the time of infection or the time it was infected and working back from that point allows for a safe and secure process for recovering data after a malicious attack. The diagram below depicts the new process of secure data recovery when utilizing Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore.

With new, stringent compliance standards to follow and aggressive malware concerns weighing heavily on the minds of your key decision makers, Veeam DataLabs can help provide peace of mind that you are following every precaution to remain compliant and avoid the potential of cross-contaminating your production environment with viruses in your backups.

How to move your business to the cloud in 2 steps!

How to move your business to the cloud in 2 steps!

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Edward Watson

Recently Veeam expanded on its existing cloud capabilities with the greatly anticipated release of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4. This release has produced an overarching portability solution, Veeam Cloud Mobility, which contains support for restoring to Microsoft Azure, Azure Stack as well as AWS. In this blog, we’ll cover the business challenge these restore capabilities solve, how businesses can use them, and the advantage of using Veeam’s features over comparable features in the market.

Workload portability and the cloud is still a challenge

As more and more businesses look to move their data and workloads to the cloud, they can encounter some challenges and constraints with their current backup solutions. Many backup solutions today require complex processes, expensive add-ons, or require that you perform manual conversions to convert workloads for cloud compatibility.
In fact, 47% of IT leaders are concerned that their cloud workloads are not as portable as intended1. The truth is, portability is absolutely key to unlocking all the benefits that the cloud has to offer, and in terms of hybrid-cloud capabilities — portability is critical. There has to be an easier way…

Workload mobility made easy with Veeam

With the latest release of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, Veeam has delivered a more comprehensive set of restore options with the NEW Veeam Cloud Mobility. Veeam Cloud Mobility builds on the existing Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure with new restore capabilities to Microsoft Azure Stack as well as AWS. Veeam Cloud Mobility allows users to take any on-premises, physical and cloud-based workloads and move them directly to AWS, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Azure Stack. When I say “any workload,” I mean it! Whether a virtual machine is running on VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Nutanix AHV, a physical server or an endpoint — anything that can be put into a Veeam repository can then be restored directly to the cloud. And the good news is these restore features are included in any edition of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4.
Now let’s go over some of the benefits:

Easy portability across the hybrid-cloud

As mentioned earlier, it is critical to have workload portability to get all the benefits that cloud has to offer no matter what stage of your cloud journey. Veeam Cloud Mobility overcomes many of the complexity and process challenges with the ease of use Veeam is known for. For customers looking to move workloads to the cloud, this is only a simple 2-step process:

  1. Register your cloud subscription with Veeam
  2. Restore ANY backup directly to the cloud

In addition to the simplicity of a 2-step process, with Veeam’s Direct Restore to AWS, there is a built-in UEFI to BIOS conversion which means there are no manual conversions needed to restore modern Windows workstations to the cloud. And, with the new Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure Stack feature, customers can get the added benefit of being able to move workloads from Microsoft Azure to Azure Stack. By doing so, unlocking the unlimited scalability and cost-efficiency of a true hybrid cloud model.

Enabling business continuity

Another primary benefit for businesses is that Veeam Cloud Mobility can be used for data recovery in emergency situations. For instance, if a site failure occurs, you will be able to easily restore your backed-up workloads, spinning them up as virtual machines in AWS, Azure and Azure Stack. Then as the smoke clears, you will be able to gain and provide access to the restored VMs. Unlike our Veeam Cloud Connect feature offered through our Veeam Cloud and Service Provider (VCSP) partners, Veeam Cloud Mobility is not considered a disaster recovery solution designed to meet strict RTOs or RPOs. Rather, this an efficient restore feature that gives you a simple, affordable game plan to gain eventual access to workloads should a disruption ever happen to your primary site.

Unlocking test and development in the cloud

Whether businesses need to test patches or applications, there is a big need for test and development. But many businesses find that conducting such tests locally puts a strain on their storage, compute and network. The cloud on the other hand is a ready-made testing paradise, where resources can be scaled up and down as needed on a dime. Veeam Cloud Mobility gives customers the ability to unlock the cloud for their test and development purposes, so they can conduct testing as frequently, quickly and affordably as needed without the constraints of a traditional infrastructure. 

Take away

Data portability is vital as part of an overall cloud strategy. With the NEW Veeam Cloud Mobility you can move ANY workload directly to AWS, Azure and Azure Stack to maintain the portability you need to leverage the power of the cloud. Whether for data portability, recovery needs or test and dev — Veeam Cloud Mobility helps make workload portability easy.
If you or your customer have not yet taken a free trial of Veeam, now is the perfect time to try Veeam Availability Suite for your cloud strategy!

Harness the power of cloud storage for long-term retention with Veeam Cloud Tier

Harness the power of cloud storage for long-term retention with Veeam Cloud Tier

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  Anthony Spiteri

The cost and efficiency of data

All organizations are experiencing explosive data growth. Data growth continues to accelerate at almost exponential speed and with that comes pain points of organizations trying to manage that growth. More data means more robust applications to handle larger data sets, which also means more infrastructure to handle applications and the data itself. While the cost and management of on-premises storage has come down as hardware and disk technologies improve, organizations still face significant overhead when maintaining their own hardware infrastructure. Taking that a step further as it relates to backups, when you combine the growth of data together with more strict regulations around data retention, the challenges that come with managing storage platforms for production and backup workloads becomes even more complex. The reality persists that organizations still struggle to achieve the economy of scale both from an operational and cost point of view that makes storing data long term viable.

The rise of Object Storage

Object Storage has fundamentally shifted the storage landscape, mainly due to its popularity in the public cloud space but also because it offers advantages over traditional block and file-based storage systems. Object Storage overcomes many of the limitations of file and block due to its design and fundamental concept of being able to scale out infinitely. Because a large percentage of backup data is considered to be for long-term retention. Object Storage seems to be a perfect fit. Though the likes of Amazon, Azure and IBM Cloud offer Object Storage, the amount of organizations that have deployed Object Storage to their on-premises environments remains relatively low. The popular trend is to consume cloud-based Object Storage platforms to take advantage of the hyper-scalers own economies of scale which can’t be matched. With the cost of storage at fractions of a cent per GB, organizations desire to consume cloud-based Object Storage has increased and many have been made aware of its benefits.

Introducing Veeam Cloud Tier

With the launch of Update 4 for Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5, we have added Veeam Cloud Tier as a new innovative way to extend backup repositories to the cloud effectively delivering an infinitely scalable Scale-out Backup Repository. By using the new Object Storage Repository as a Capacity Tier Extent as part of the Scale-out Backup Repository, we have fundamentally changed the way in which organizations and our Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners will think about how they design and architect backup repositories.
VCT-AS-01
  By extending the Scale-out Backup Repository to take advantage of Object Storage, whether that be Amazon S3, Azure Blob, IBM Cloud Object Storage or any S3-Compatible platform (hosted or internal), we have enabled this feature to take advantage of cloud storage technologies to tier data blocks and offload them from the local Scale-out Backup Repository Performance Tier extents to Capacity Tier extents which can be configured to consume storage services as shown below.
VCT-AS-02

How is Veeam Cloud Tier different?

The innovative technology we have built into this feature allows for data to be stripped out of Veeam backup files (which are part of a sealed chain) and offloaded as blocks of data to Object Storage leaving a dehydrated Veeam backup file on the local extents with just the metadata remaining in place. This is done based on a policy that is set against the Scale-out Backup Repository that dictates the operational restore window of which local storage is used as the primary landing zone for backup data and processed as a Tiering Job every four hours. The result is a space saving, smaller footprint on the local storage without sacrificing any of Veeam’s industry-leading recovery operations. This is what truly sets this feature apart and means that even with data residing in the Capacity Tier, you can still perform:

  • Instant VM Recoveries
  • Entire computer and disk-level restores
  • File-level and item-level restores
  • Direct Restore to Amazon EC2, Azure and Azure Stack

Just stepping back to think about what that means. With Veeam Cloud Tier you are now able to recover or restore directly from Object Storage without the need for any additional, potentially expensive components. With that, you can start to understand just how innovative a feature Veeam Cloud Tier is! In addition to that, we have built in further space saving efficiencies in the form of effective source side dedupe where by the same blocks of data are not offloaded to Object Storage, reducing the amount of consumed storage and reducing data transfer times up to the Capacity Tier. We have also added Intelligent Block Recovery that will source data blocks from the local backup files instead of what is tiered to Object Storage resulting in not only faster recovery times, but more importantly, cost savings when pulling data back when using Object Storage services that charge for egress.

Conclusion

For all Veeam customers and partners, both end users and VCSP partners alike, Veeam Cloud Tier represents an important inflection point in the way in which backup repositories are designed and built.

Veeam North America ProPartner Program Announces New Growth Opportunities for Committed Resellers to Help Support the Growing Demand for Intelligent Data Management Solutions

Business Wire Technology News

BAAR, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Veeam® Software, the leader in Backup solutions that enable Intelligent Data Management™, today announced major enhancements to its North American ProPartner program. As a 100 percent channel company and following the recent announcement of general availability for new cloud data management capabilities as part of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, Veeam is making major investments in its partner ecosystem to reinforce its strong commitment to the success and profitability of its partners.

“Together with our partners, Veeam has experienced unprecedented growth since inception – enabled by innovative technology and delivered through the award-winning Veeam ProPartner program,” said James Mundle, Vice President of Worldwide Channels at Veeam. “As the adoption of cloud-based business models continues to grow, and programs become more complex, the constant is that we always keep the customer experience across all segments as our top priority, delivering the best products, solutions, and services in a way they can consume them better and more efficiently than any other technology company.”
Key enhancements to the Veeam Partner Program include:

  • Veeam IQ: Veeam has launched a new comprehensive partner-facing training platform to streamline partner enablement. Formally known as Veeam University, this new Learning Management System (LMS) is an online resource that supports partner education, fostering increased efficiency and greater profitability. Now with multi-language support and increased learner engagement, partners can easily access demos, product and solution training, program and selling education, training courses, and preparation tools for Veeam certifications including Veeam Technical Sales Professional (VMTSP) and Veeam Sales Professional (VMSP). This modern and intuitive learning platform enables partners to move at their own pace, putting the partner in control of their progress and certification compliance.
  • Additional and Significant Marketing Investments: Veeam is committing to increased marketing investments in both partner-facing marketing and support for Focus regional partners, National partners and Corporate Resellers. Veeam has launched a new Marketing Concierge service – a dedicated marketing consultant group available to collaborate with partners to build multi-touch campaigns that focus on digital marketing tactics. Working closely with eligible Veeam partners, a Virtual Marketing Manager (vMM) will guide the partner though the entire campaign process, designating effective campaign materials, customizing content, building social media initiatives, recommending best practices, building campaign components, and managing leads from the Veeam MarketReach platform (Veeam’s email campaign and lead tracking tool for partners) post-campaign. With this Platform, partners can create, execute and track their own Veeam campaigns, including banner creation, co-branding marketing materials, event-in-a-box projects, etc.
  • Accelerated Growth Rebates for Gold and Platinum Partners: Veeam is now rewarding partners who not only make their assigned revenue targets, but those who overachieve on a quarterly or annual basis. Value incentive rebates now with accelerators as well as opportunities for additional back-end rebates present even more earning potential for partners.
  • New Partner Perks and Incentives: Veeam Partner Perks rewards sales, marketing and technical roles at partner organizations. Veeam understands that a “closed deal” is the result of more than just a sales function. This program leverages the behaviors and actions of the partner with valuable rewards, whether it’s selling into the SMB space, co-selling with an alliance, taking a certification, completing a POC, or running a competitive campaign; Veeam recognizes every contributing role of the process.

“Our industry continues to evolve; we understand that we must too evolve our partner program to ensure we are providing all of the tools and offering the highest support to ensure our partners are successful and maximizing every opportunity,” continued Mundle. “When they are successful, we are all successful. The new investments, resources, programs and tools Veeam is putting in place will help our partners to achieve greater profitability and enable success across all business segments. With the strength of our partner program and momentum, we will continue our history of innovation and leadership in the backup and data management industry.”

How to restore and convert your workloads directly to the cloud

How to restore and convert your workloads directly to the cloud

Veeam Software Official Blog  /  David Hill


Veeam has been expanding the capabilities of the Veeam Availability Suite product set. Recently, Veeam announced Veeam Cloud Mobility, providing workload portability across clouds and different platforms.
In this blog, we will focus on some of the technical aspects of the Veeam Cloud Mobility capability. With the latest release of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, Veeam has provided an extensive set of restore options. Building on the existing Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure functionality, are extra restore capabilities including Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure Stack and Amazon AWS EC2. With the Direct Restore capabilities, a user can restore any backup from any on-premises platform and move them directly to the cloud. This is what we will look at here.

Direct Restore to Amazon AWS EC2

First let’s take a look at how we easily restore workloads to Amazon AWS EC2. We begin by selecting the backup of the workload we want to run in the cloud. We simply right-click and select Restore to Amazon EC2

We select the AWS account we want to use, the AWS region, and then the data center region that we want to restore the workload too.

We can now change the original VM name to an EC2 specific instance name, with additional capabilities to add prefix and suffixes.

Select the EC2 instance type and what kind of license you want to use, whether to bring your own (BYOL) or lease a license from Amazon.

Pick your Amazon VPC, subnet and security group.

Pick the proxy options (this will be used to do the actual restore into Amazon AWS EC2).

Then the restore will begin and the status will update during the process.

That is how simple it is to move a workload to Amazon AWS EC2 from an on-premises backup. The great aspect of this capability is its simplicity. Seven to eight steps and you have migrated a workload to the public cloud.
The steps are the same for Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Azure Stack as well.

Virtual machine conversion

Now with any migration, it is important to understand that a conversion has to take place. When understanding the technology in migrating from different platforms, it is important to understand what is actually happening. Let’s take an example of moving a VMware vSphere VM to Amazon AWS EC2. As one expects, Amazon is not running VMware vSphere to provide the IaaS capabilities in EC2, which means they are using a different hypervisor. In order to restore a VMware vSphere VM to Amazon AWS EC2, a conversion has to take place. This allows for the VMware vSphere virtual machine files (vmdk, .vmx) to be changed to the Amazon equivalent. Also, Amazon AWS EC2 does not directly support GPT boot volumes, so a conversion is necessary. The diagram below shows how this works.

Takeaway

As companies invest further into the multi-cloud capabilities and strategy, it is becoming a more complex environment to operate in. With the new Veeam Cloud Mobility having the key capabilities to move workloads from and to any platform in any location is a major step forward in simplifying the complexities that a multi-cloud strategy brings.
If you or your customer have not yet taken a free trial of Veeam, now is the perfect time to try Veeam Availability Suite for your cloud strategy!

Veeam innovation continues

Veeam innovation continues

Veeam Executive Blog – The Availability Lounge  /  Jason Buffington


At our Velocity 2019 event last week, we celebrated four Veeam partners who developed some really great solutions that are powered by Veeam technologies. Our most heartfelt congratulations and thanks to each of these Veeam Innovation Award (VIA) recipients. If you haven’t seen them yet, please check out the short videos of each VIA partner and their solutions:
   
In the weeks leading up to Velocity, the general public had the opportunity to vote on a “Best of Show” among the four VIA awardees. The winner of Best of Show for Velocity 2019 is OffsiteDataSync! I had the chance to reach out to visit with Matt Chesterton, CEO of OffsiteDataSync, after the award was presented:
 

But wait, there’s more!
At Velocity, we celebrated Veeam partners who built great solutions to offer to customers. At VeeamON, we will be celebrating Veeam customers who are achieving great outcomes through the use of Veeam technologies (including partner services). Here are the details:

  • Customer solutions must include some level of significant deployment (which can be on-premises or cloud-based), but the nomination may come from the customer themselves or their service provider, Veeam partner, or Veeam point-of-contact (anyone directly involved in the deployment and ongoing operation).
  • Customer nominations will be accepted from February 1 through March 8. All complete submissions received by this date are eligible for review and could be selected as a VIA awardee.
  • Upon closure of the submission window, Veeam will leverage a diverse board of roughly 30 judges to determine four VIA winners, who will be notified approximately two weeks after submission closure. After notification, we’ll be sending a Veeam video team to interview the four winning organizations (and their partners where applicable).
  • And in May, we’ll open voting for the general public to vote among the four VIAs for a Best of Show at VeeamON 2019 in Miami, Florida on May 22.

Nominations for VIAs for customers are now OPEN. Nominate yourself or your customer for a Veeam Innovation Award. Good luck!
