Azure Backup & Recovery from Veeam

The remote work revolution has intensified the focus on data protection, backup and storage. The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) recently reported a significant surge in cybersecurity threats since March 2020. With cyberattacks on the rise, applications, data recovery and backup have moved up the priority list on business continuity plans.

Rhonda Chandler, Veeam BDM at Dicker Data said, “The path to digital transformation poses a number of challenges including cost considerations, data protection, legacy systems, skills gaps and government regulations. Dicker Data has partnered with globally recognised and leading vendor in backup solutions, Veeam Software to provide the Australian IT channel with Veeam for Microsoft Azure, a simple, cost effective cloud data management solution.”

As businesses require robust data backup and recovery solutions, Dicker Data explores how Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure is helping partners deliver native Azure backup for Microsoft Azure virtual machines (VMs), enabling users to cost-effectively and securely protect their cloud data to overcome any data loss using full- and file‑level recovery quickly and efficiently.

Transforming data protection and disaster recovery solutions

Microsoft recently revealed 58% of business leaders have increased budgets on security initiatives, due to business implications from the remote work revolution.

IT professionals are looking to cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solutions as part of their business continuity strategy. Veeam backup for Microsoft Azure IaaS delivers enterprise ready and cost-efficient backup capabilities to instantly protect and recover workloads, mitigate data loss and risks via Azure Native. It is turnkey deployment offered as an integrated data protection platform or directly through the Azure Marketplace and a wizard-driven user interface (UI). This provides instant and frequent back-up and data recovery options and applications via policy‑based automation from Azure native virtual machine (VM) snapshots.

Additionally, Veeam backup for Microsoft Azure enables seamless Cloud Data Management™ across private and public cloud workloads from a single platform with Veeam Backup & Replication™. Users can easily recover or migrate workloads from the cloud, to the cloud, within the cloud and across the cloud.

Veeam Backup for Azure uses Blob Storage for storing your backups. The Veeam platform leveraging Cloud Tier functionality also enables automated transfers to Azure with unlimited capacity to provide low-cost and long-term retention . This helps meet compliance requirements, leverage lower cost, simplicity and elasticity of object storage.

On the security front, the offering isolates cross-subscription and cross-region configurations with layered defence capabilities to mitigate cyberattacks and security breaches via multi-factor authentication.

An industry-first cost management system

To control expenses and reduce cloud costs for lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), the platform includes an industry-first built-in, backup cloud-based cost calculator. This helps manage budget expectations, cloud consumption, supports cost estimation to minimise overcharging and ensures Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are met. The calculator also sets a guidance on the costs of individual backup polices and a snapshot of traffic and transaction costs on a monthly basis.
