Veeam expand Google Cloud partnership, introducing Backup for Google Cloud Platform

LIMA’s technology partner, Veeam has announced its expansion of public cloud support with the launch of new Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform. The launch strengthens Veeam’s commitment to hybrid cloud, now supporting all three major public cloud providers.  

Google Cloud is one of the top five largest public cloud infrastructure providers worldwide. With this new offering, Veeam delivers a single platform to protect, secure and manage all applications and data – cloud, virtual and physical – enabling organisations to accelerate hybrid cloud adoption.  

Danny Allan, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam commented on the collaboration:  

“Veeam recognizes the strategic importance of the cloud to our 400,000+ global customers and we are committed to providing broad platform support and choice. 

As we now expand public cloud support even further with the general availability of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform, we have simultaneously expanded our partnership with Google Cloud, enabling Veeam to jointly engage customers through the Google Cloud Marketplace. Additionally, with Veeam recently acquiring Kasten, customers can also acquire Kasten’s K10 data management platform, purpose-built for Kubernetes, through the Google Cloud Marketplace.” 

 New functionality of Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform includes: 

• Google Cloud-Native: Simple yet powerful web UI, deployable from the Google Cloud Marketplace that starts protecting data in minutes; Policy-Based Automation of Google Cloud-native snapshots for fast and frequent recovery points, and rapid full- and file-level recovery options to overcome any cloud data loss.
 

• Cost Optimisation: Industry-first cost calculation to align service-level objectives (SLOs) with budgets while avoiding cloud overspend; back up to Google Cloud object storage for cost-effective long-term retention and compliance.
 

• Security: Overcome security threats including ransomware as well as insider threats by isolating backup data from production (cross-project/cross-region); layered security to protect against brute force attacks with multi-factor authentication (MFA).
 

• Hybrid-Ready: Portable data format and integration with Veeam Backup & Replication™ external repositories enables easy recovery outside of Google Cloud; utilizes flexible Veeam Universal Licensing (VUL) to simplify license management and enable Cloud Mobility.
