Integrating Swarm Object Storage with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backups & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication offers market-leading functionality for modern data protection. One of the challenges in utilizing the full feature set of Veeam solutions is providing a scalable, cost-effective Capacity tier for backup files in a multi-tier backup strategy. Cloud-based solutions are scalable, but costs compound over time and are challenging to predict because of the way data is written. Another challenge is guaranteeing consistent data transfer speeds and security to guarantee backups happen in a timely fashion and data retention abides by certain regulations such as GDPR. To protect against ransomware, longer retention backup files should be immutable (that is, not subject to change or deletion). The solution is DataCore Swarm. Swarm provides a secure, durable, and cost-effective software-defined object storage solution for the Capacity tier in your Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository.

Swarm Object Storage

Swarm works seamlessly with Veeam backup technologies serving as a scalable and resilient capacity tier for your backup infrastructure. It is qualified Veeam Ready as an object storage repository and as an object storage repository with immutability.
