New backup and recovery solution for VMware vCLOUD

Veeam Software announced that it will support enhanced backup and recovery for VMware vCloud Director through integration with Veeam Backup & Replication.

The company is calling this move an important step for organizations who are moving into the next step for virtualization and need to protect their private cloud.

Veeam is an Elite VMware Technology Alliance Partner and made a name for itself with vSphere technology. Veeam’s enhanced support for vCloud Director is part of the company’s alignment strategy with VMware.

New integration will extend Veeam support for vCloud Director, which currently includes the ability to backup and restore virtual machines (VMs) managed by vCloud Director. Using the vCloud Director API, Veeam will display the vCloud Director infrastructure directly in Veeam Backup & Replication, backup all vApp metadata and attributes, restore vApps and VMs directly to vCloud Director, and support restore of fast-provisioned VMs.

The new functionality leverages Veeam’s existing backup infrastructure and is integrated directly into the existing Veeam backup console. It is a complete out-of-the-box solution that is fully supported by Veeam and extensible by customers and partners.

According to the company, this enhanced backup and recovery for vCloud Director will enable the next phase of virtualization as organizations, particularly mid-size and large enterprises, move toward a cloud computing model.

Enhanced vCloud Director support will also streamline backup and recovery for cloud providers and managed service providers (MSPs) that are using vCloud Director to provision and manage cloud environments for their customers.
