Veeam has staked a claim that the company’s purpose-built virtual machine data protection solution, Veeam Backup & Replication, is Powerful, Easy-to-Use, and Affordable. If true, these characteristics are right in line with customer requirements. As virtualization deployments expand, it becomes ever clearer that data protection methodologies designed for the physical infrastructure paradigm are insufficient. IT administrators need a powerful, easy-to-use, and affordable solution to today’s IT challenges, which include exploding data volumes, shrinking backup windows, and more stringent recovery point and recovery time objectives (RPOs and RTOs).
