Veeam Cloud Connect Backup: Storage Optimization

Mike Mosley
In my previous blog, I reviewed how to get started with Veeam Cloud Connect Backup.
 
To get the most out of your Veeam backup solution, you want to make sure you fully understand and effectively manage your storage and consumption needs. It’s imperative that you have enough space available so you can fulfill your retention requirements. If you exceed your storage limit, you may begin to see failures that could affect your backup chain. If you overestimate your storage needs, you may be paying for space that is not being utilized.

Getting Started with Veeam Cloud Connect Backup

Mike Mosley
If you currently use Veeam backup and replication on-premises or have explored the Veeam website, then you most likely have heard of their 3-2-1 rule of availability. This rule states that you should keep 3 copies of your data and applications stored on at least 2 different types of media and keep 1 of those copies off-site.
 
The iland Secure Cloud Backup solution using Veeam Cloud Connect helps you to fulfill Veeam’s 3-2-1 rule by enabling backup to an off-site cloud repository and/or copying your local backups to the cloud. Let’s take a look at how easy it is to get started with Veeam Cloud Connect. By the way, if you're considering a disaster recovery solution as well as, or instead of a cloud backup solution, take a look at my blogs on Veeam DRaaS starting here

Disaster Recovery Options for VMware Customers

Richard Stinton

As highlighted in my recent cloud predictions for 2018 blog post, Gartner sees the Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) market growing from $2.01B in 2017 to $3.7B by 2021.

One of the main reasons for this level of growth is that it is ‘as a service’ and not the complex and expensive ‘roll your own’ environment that it used to be. This has made DRaaS much more accessible to the SMB market, as well as enterprise customers. But, as the list of DRaaS solutions grows along with adoption rates, it's important for VMware vSphere customers to carefully consider how their choice of cloud provider should be influenced by their existing infrastructure to avoid technical challenges ahead.

3rd Party Firewalls in the iland Secure Cloud

Richard Stinton

One of the main barriers to adoption for public clouds over the past few years has been that of security. Fears of hacking and data theft have been heightened by cases in the media.

Many customers thought that cloud would automatically take care of security regarding attacks from the internet, and there have been great advances to allay these fears. However, for many public cloud providers not all bases are covered out of the box, and adding in security features can add significant cost and complexity to the solution.
