New OVH offer uses Veeam technology to keep businesses up and running

OVH has integrated the Veeam® Cloud Connect solution into its secured cloud infrastructure to store backups of company data. The offer is available now on www.ovh.co.uk.

Due to software or hardware failures, or data theft by malicious parties, the global cost of violated or lost company data is expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2019 (¹). Data protection and availability are, therefore, key economic issues for companies. It’s essential to guarantee the rapid recovery of critical applications. Ensuring continuity of service for businesses is a position shared by OVH and Veeam® Software as they develop their ranges of solutions.

That’s why OVH is using Veeam Cloud Connect technology to give users an easy way to store backups of their data on the infrastructure. Through this offer, companies can consolidate their data protection strategy by maintaining a backup on a remote site, without needing to manage it themselves.

"Veeam has a clear vision of a strategy for ensuring the continuous availability of data and services. It’s based on 3-2-1: three copies of data on two platforms, including one on a remote site. OVH and its infrastructures facilitate remote data replication in a secure cloud. An additional replication at the infrastructure level makes this even more of a premium service. It is a real advantage for customers", says Laurent Garcia, Cloud Senior Director at Veeam.

The Veeam offer, available under a separate licence, offers a premium design for sending and storing data in the OVH cloud. OVH integrated customer feedback on the solution, which was first launched on the So you Start platform, into the design. It natively integrates end-to-end data encryption with SSL, data replication in the OVH Cloud and a WAN Accelerator to speed up the transfer of data. All this with a clear pricing policy based solely on how much storage space is used.

"Through our partnership with Veeam, we can offer the external backup solution that businesses are demanding, with a clear and all-inclusive formula. We are simplifying how professionals can implement and manage their data protection strategy. The stability of Veeam technology combined with the quality of our cloud infrastructures guarantees unrestricted recovery for businesses", adds Mehdi Bekkai, Cloud Product Manager at OVH.

In a context where prices for external backup solutions are often excessive, OVH is using its expertise in cloud technology to introduce a simple, high-quality offer that is one of the most competitive on the market.
