This platform offers more advanced data security, recovery, and hybrid cloud capabilities than ever before, with Veeam Backup & Replication (VBR) v12 included. The platform combines the latest features from Veeam into a single, reliable solution that comes in three enterprise-grade editions. It provides secure backup and fast, reliable recovery, ensuring uninterrupted business operations for Cloud, Virtual, Physical, and SaaS applications. The Veeam Data Platform addresses the various challenges that organizations face, including outages, errors, and ransomware, in complex and expanding IT environments. 

The Veeam Data Platform offers three essential requirements to ensure business continuity: data security, data recovery, and data freedom that allows backing up and utilizing data from anywhere without any cloud or platform limitations. The platform is available in three enterprise-grade editions: Foundation, Advanced, and Premium. All editions include Veeam's award-winning VBR and Instant Recovery capabilities. The Advanced and Premium editions offer additional advanced resiliency features, such as monitoring, analytics, and recovery.

* The Foundation Edition offers comprehensive data protection with VBR v12 that incorporates more than 500 new features and enhancements.

* The Advanced Edition combines VBR with Veeam ONE (ONE), providing customers with intelligent monitoring and observability capabilities to identify and resolve backup or recovery problems proactively.

* The Premium Edition is the ultimate enterprise Modern Data Protection and recovery solution, combining VBR, ONE, and Veeam Recovery Orchestrator (VRO). The Premium Edition automates complex data recovery processes with near-zero Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and provides complete data resiliency through one-click recovery. In addition, Premium edition customers are entitled to the new Veeam Ransomware Warranty, which covers the cost of data recovery up to $5 million dollars in the event of a ransomware or cyber-attack.

The Veeam Data Platform's all editions are built on the latest and industry-leading backup and recovery technology of VBR v12. The platform features new functionalities that improve enterprise-grade recovery capabilities, providing assurance in the event of disasters or cyber-attacks across the hybrid cloud.

The Veeam Data Platform offers several new features that enhance its backup and recovery capabilities.

These include:

- Direct-to-object storage backups: The platform allows users to send backups directly to Veeam's ecosystem of object storage partners on-premises or to cloud object storage, without performance degradation, to take full advantage of unlimited scalability.

- Trusted immutability: Veeam provides enterprise-grade immutability options from trusted vendors, including on-premises object, block, and file storage, hardened repositories, deduplicating storage appliances, cloud object storage and tape, ensuring backups can always be restored after a cyberattack.

- Cyber resilience: The platform enables fast response to ransomware attacks by identifying, alerting, and restoring only clean data. It offers automation and recovery orchestration for all workloads, supports multi-factor authentication (MFA), password-less service accounts (gMSA) for Windows, and provides single-use credentials for Linux. It also supports Kerberos-only and IPv6-only environments to fortify defense against cyberattacks.

- Hybrid-cloud optimization: Immutable backups for cloud-native AWS and Microsoft Azure workloads, new cloud-integrated agents for lift-and-shift workloads, and unified cloud monitoring and reporting make the platform even more efficient and secure across the hybrid cloud.

- Ecosystem excellence: The Veeam Universal Storage API 2.0 and Smart Object Storage API provide futureproofing for enterprise scalability and offsite resiliency. Inaugural launch partners that integrate with these new APIs include Pure Storage, Scality, and Object First.

 

Veeam's monitoring and analytics solution provides intelligent insights and visibility within the new Veeam Data Platform's Advanced and Premium Editions to identify and resolve issues proactively, ensuring the highest level of critical data protection. The latest version has expanded capabilities and now supports more Veeam backup solutions, including Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365. Additionally, new monitoring and visibility features include immutability reporting and data protection statuses for multi-cloud. These enhancements offer more value and insight into businesses' data protection strategy than ever before, providing comprehensive monitoring and analytics solutions to ensure the highest level of data protection.

The Veeam Data Platform Premium Edition offers recovery orchestration, which is one of the most powerful tools to reduce time to recovery and provide confidence in business resiliency. With automated planning, testing, and orchestration of disaster recovery steps, businesses can simplify operations and prove backup compliance. The platform now offers automated, orchestrated recovery to Microsoft Azure, instant restore of Veeam Agents backups as virtual machines (VMs), and an automated recovery rollback for clean, ransomware-free data recoveries. These new features provide businesses with the necessary tools to simplify their recovery processes and ensure business continuity in the event of a disaster or cyber-attack.

As cyber security threats become more widespread, ensuring robust backup and replication solutions is crucial for enterprises. Veeam has been a market leader in this space, and the launch of the new Veeam Data Platform demonstrates the company's commitment to innovation.
