SwiftStack Unveils “1click” Cloud Storage for Veeam Cloud Tier, Earns Veeam Ready Status

Sponsored by Businesswire

the leader in multi-cloud data storage and management, today announced
that the new SwiftStack Software Appliance has a 1click Application
Profile for Veeam
to further simplify setup and management of cloud or on-premises object
storage for Cloud Tier, a new feature in Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Update 4. The appliance helps Veeam users realize the economy and
elasticity of cloud storage, and keep data active and available
on-demand even as volumes and compliance requirements grow.

SwiftStack, a Veeam Alliance Partner, has achieved Veeam
Object status in Veeam’s newest category for object storage
platforms, announced on May 16th. Veeam Ready Object qualification
assures users that SwiftStack meets Veeam’s partner testing program
standards for feature compatibility and performance levels of object
storage products.

Veeam customers using SwiftStack can create a capacity tier for
long-term data retention in their own datacenter, across multiple
geographic regions, and/or one or more public clouds depending on their
management and retention policies. Pointers to the migrated files, along
with associated metadata, are maintained locally near the Veeam servers,
while files for long-term retention are moved off to SwiftStack. Other
policies can be assigned based on protection, location, access, or other
requirements. SwiftStack stores data in a highly durable manner across
its cluster and can automatically replicate the data offsite to another
data center or public cloud to protect against a major disaster.

“Using Veeam Cloud Tier is just the beginning of a fully modernized,
cloud-native storage environment that can be extended to other
enterprise applications so users can manage the hyper-growth of data –
and extract more value from that data,” said Erik Pounds, Vice President
of Marketing at SwiftStack. “The new 1click software appliance for Veeam
Cloud Tier is a single-click process to configure a scalable cloud
infrastructure that costs approximately one-tenth of traditional storage
and is capable of so much more.”

“SwiftStack brings much-needed cloud and data center storage strategies
to Veeam users who want to reduce storage acquisition, scaling, and
management costs,” said Ken Ringdahl, Vice President of Global Alliance
Architecture at Veeam. “The appetite for cloud storage is continuing to
increase and SwiftStack delivering scale-out on-premises capabilities
with a bridge into a public cloud service is an ideal solution.”

SwiftStack performed this recent round of qualification testing on Cisco
hardware infrastructure which included UCS S3260 storage servers and
HyperFlex. For even further assurance of compatibility, Cisco offers
pre-defined solution bundles for SwiftStack, supported by the software

SwiftStack is showing its Software Appliance with 1click Application
Profile for Veeam Cloud Tier solution for the first time this week at VeeamON,
the world’s premier event for Cloud Data Management™, May 21-23 in Miami.

SwiftStack is easy to deploy and scale with adding standard server
hardware on premises and accounts in Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud
Platform. Applications and users are given universal access (file and
object) to a single data namespace, and data is placed across the system
by user-defined policies. Any amount of metadata can be added and
indexed in the system, allowing for full awareness and utilization. The
new SwiftStack Software Appliance featuring 1click Application Profiles
simplify the provisioning, tuning, and ongoing management of storage for
leading data-driven enterprise applications. A 1click Application
Profile is already available for Splunk Enterprise with SmartStore, with
more to come.
