Veeam makes Cloud Connect available within the Azure Marketplace

Veeam Software’s Cloud Connect solution has been made available within the Azure Marketplace.

Cloud Connect is now available as a pre-configured Microsoft Azure Certified for Virtual Machines solution, meaning service providers can use the solution with Azure to offer cloud repositories for Veeam availability solutions and services.

Veeam Cloud Connect forms part of the company’s availability suite and provides customers with the ability to move backups to an offsite backup repository securely and efficiently. Service providers are now able to use an Azure-based solution to manage and move backups off site to the cloud.

“This collaboration brings together solutions that deliver availability for the modern data centre with a world-class cloud infrastructure,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “It’s yet another demonstration of Veeam’s commitment to enabling its partners to deliver the next-generation cloud services customers are demanding. As an Azure-certified solution, Veeam Cloud Connect provides the thousands of Veeam and Microsoft partners with a fast path to expand their cloud-based services.”

The Cloud Connect solution supports Azure for Veeam partners that are building Veeam availability services and require the on-demand scalability and capacity of the Microsoft Azure platform.

“Both customers and service providers are looking for cloud infrastructure and solutions they can trust,” said Garth Fort, general manager of Enterprise Partners, Microsoft. “Veeam Cloud Connect and its availability from the Azure Marketplace gives service providers the ability to provide Veeam backup hosting services seamlessly, allowing private networks and the public cloud to work as one.”
