May 16, 2018 - Today we are pleased to formally announce a collaborative partnership between OVH US and Veeam to provide easy-to-use and secure backup option as part of the OVHcloud solution set. The new offerings provide competitive, cost-effective options to organizations looking to avoid data loss and deploy worry-free, automated backups for their virtual machines.
OVH has been working with Veeam, a leader in intelligent data management for the hyper-available enterprise, for several years now. As one of the largest cloud partners in the EMEA region, OVH has been recognized as a Veeam Cloud Provider of the Year for two consecutive years. The relationship extends further with OVH US recently attending VeeamON as a silver sponsor and working closely with Veeam to continue to enhance the OVHcloud business continuity solutions.
New and enhanced backup options with OVHcloud
In the US, Veeam will act as a production backup tool for our vSphere-based Dedicated Cloud and Enterprise Dedicated Cloud offerings, forming the foundation for our hosted and self-service backup and recovery services. With this solution, automated backups, simple restoration, and daily reporting functions are set up and ready to go with just a few clicks. We will also offer bring your own license (BYOL) options, starting with our bare-metal, dedicated server line. We recognize that licensing is a complex and often frustrating challenge for companies—this offering will allow customers to choose custom bare-metal hosts and storage systems to fit their unique needs.
Customers want to know if and how their data will be protected. Unfortunately, security and resiliency are frequently areas of concern for organizations looking to move their workloads beyond their on-premise environments. These concerns are further exacerbated with a perceived lack of control over their new cloud environments, the fear of unexpected spending spikes, and a lack of the in-house skills needed to migrate to and manage the cloud. Hosted Private Cloud offers increased flexibility and agility, as well as improved performance and security, all now elevated by Managed Veeam Backup.
Joining forces to power innovation, provide freedom of choice
“Innovation and freedom of choice are key when it comes to technology,” said Russell P. Reeder, CEO and president of OVH US. “Our partnership with Veeam is part of our continued quest to give our customers peace of mind when it comes to protecting their most precious asset: their data. It also spares them from the headache of spending extra time worrying about their infrastructure and availability. Keeping a collaborative spirit with our partners and customers allows us to deliver the secure turn-key infrastructure and software options that businesses need to operate better, faster, and more efficiently.”
“Over the years we’ve worked with OVH, it’s become clear that they care deeply about their customers. This is a value that both of our companies share—it’s motivated us to develop these collaborative best-fit solutions with OVH US,” stated Matt Kalmenson, Vice President of North American Cloud & Service Provider Sales at Veeam. “This partnership offers significant value to Veeam and OVH US customers by offering fully automated backups that have zero impact on storage resources.”
