Veeam has announced new data protection and availability software for Azure hybrid cloud environments. This means a single backup, recovery and availability solution can cover you across multiple cloud platforms as well as your own data centre.

The modern enterprise no longer has a monolithic application and infrastructure stack housed purely within its own data centre. Australia has embraced virtualisation at some of the highest levels in the world and we are bounding forward in adopting cloud services as well. This is completely changing the way we protect our data and ensure high levels of availability. At the recent VeeamON Forum, held in Sydney, I spoke with Veeam's Co-CEO Peter McKay about what the company is doing around those challenges and how he is travelling after a year of sharing the CEO job.
During the opening keynote for Cloud Day at VeeamON, Veeam announced the availability of the release candidate version of their new backup solution Veeam PN (Veeam Powered Network). Veeam PN for Microsoft Azure is designed to simplify and automate the setup of a disaster recovery site in Azure using software-defined networking (SDN). And, given what I saw during a demonstration given by Aussie technical evangelist Anthony Spiteri, it looks like a very powerful tool that is offered at the bargain price of free.
