“Over the last year, our partnership with Nutanix has enabled thousands of enterprises to leverage the power of multi-cloud environments,” said Peter McKay, President and Co-CEO at Veeam. “A year after being named the Premier Availability solution provider for Nutanix virtualized environments, our collaboration has accelerated and we will enhance this position with Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV.”

“We expect Nutanix will continue to be a pivotal part of our success in building the industry’s most extensive partner ecosystem and product integration program in support of delivering the leading platform for intelligent data management,” added McKay.

“Nutanix and Veeam combined deliver a best-in-class, simple solution that enables businesses to focus on outcomes, freeing them from traditional and problematic infrastructure and data protection headaches,” added Sudheesh Nair, President at Nutanix. “This joint solution will offer the agility and availability required by constantly changing environments, where application-first thinking is a must.”

Through this new solution, Nutanix AHV users will gain the same reliable backup and rapid recovery capabilities that Veeam users running vSphere and Hyper-V already count on, including:

Recovery Granularity – Ensures minimum disruption to business operations by providing users with multiple restore options to drive low recovery time objectives (RTO). Options range from recovery of an entire VM or individual files and application items.

Optimized User Experience – Purpose-built with the Nutanix user in mind, the powerful web-based UI was specifically designed to look and feel like Prism – the management UI for the Nutanix Infrastructure stack ensuring a streamlined and familiar user experience.

Decreases Data Loss Exposure – Minimizes the risk of data loss, as backups are taken from Nutanix VM-level snapshots. By leveraging snapshots, users can perform fast and efficient backups on a more frequent basis to achieve low recovery point objectives (RPO).
