New Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 Brings Enterprise-Grade Disaster Recovery Capabilities to Organizations of All Sizes

Sponsored by Businesswire

, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data
Management to over 350,000 organizations globally, today
announced the general availability of new Veeam
Availability Orchestrator v2
. The
latest version expands its powerful orchestration and automation
capabilities to a broader set of applications and VMs, helping
organizations address a variety of operational and disaster recovery
(DR) and data migration scenarios. Never have organizations been so
dependent on their data, and yet DR used to only be achievable by the
largest of enterprises or for only the most critical applications. With
the unique and expanded capabilities within Veeam Availability
Orchestrator v2, the Veeam Availability Platform brings
comprehensive DR, operational recovery and platform migrations to any
organization that is leveraging Veeam’s proven backup and replication
capabilities. The announcement was made during VeeamON
the world’s Premier Conference for Cloud Data Management, now
taking place in Miami, FL.

“Our new version of Veeam Availability Orchestrator eliminates the
challenges of manual processes by introducing reliable orchestrated
recovery of production VMs, whether they’re protected by backups or
replicas,” said Danny Allan, Vice President of Product Strategy at
Veeam. “This also includes the ability to quickly and efficiently
leverage protection data to prove recoverability and compliance, whether
standards are imposed internally or by governing regulations like HIPAA,
SOX, GDPR and more.”

Approximately 80 percent of businesses experienced an incident during
the past two years that required use of an IT DR plan1. It is
imperative that organizations protect, plan and prepare themselves to
overcome any outage, as Veeam customer research reveals that downtime of
just a single mission-critical application costs an organization more
than $102,000 per hour on average. The ability to now automatically
test, document and reliably recover entire sites, as well as individual
workloads from backups in a completely orchestrated way, drastically
lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) of DR. With this new version of
Veeam Availability Orchestrator, Veeam has democratized DR by enabling
organizations of all sizes to achieve comprehensive and compliant DR for
all their applications and data, no matter how they’ve been protected.

Other new features delivered in the release of Veeam Availability
Orchestrator v2 include the ability to:

  • More easily prove — and proactively remediate where necessary —
    service level agreement (SLA) attainment for internal and external
    compliance regulations and audits with enhanced reporting and
    compliance capabilities.
  • Automatically leverage both backup and replica protection data for use
    cases beyond recovery verification, such as DevOps, patch and upgrade
    testing, analytics and more.
  • Empower business units, application owners and operations teams with
    their own secure access to orchestration planning and testing
    resources through advanced delegation and role-based access control
