VMware Management for Service Providers by Veeam
#1 Data Protection and Disaster recovery for VMware Cloud and Service Providers
Service and VMware vCloud providers offering hosting services to customers face challenges of managing a multi-tenant VMware environment. They must protect all virtual machines in the cloud, meet different SLAs and, at the same time, keep costs low. Veeam Service Provider Program designed specifically for VMware vCloud and VMware hosting providers can help you:
1. Protect all VMs with ONE solution
2. Increase revenue by providing additional service offerings
3. Reduce hardware and software costs
Real business outcomes with innovative solutions from Veeam Software
Virtualization creates opportunities for service providers to offer new services, and provides the foundation for cost savings and greater profitability. However, existing VMware management tools are not well aligned with service providers’ needs and business model.
To fill this gap, Veeam offers its solutions through a program designed specifically for service providers. With data protection and virtual infrastructure management from Veeam, you can enhance the manageability of your VMware data center environment and extend hosted offerings around VMware.
Managing a dynamic, multi-tenant VMware environment is not easy. You need to ensure all resources are efficiently used, even while demand is fluctuating. At the same time, you must meet service level agreements (SLAs) and keep costs low.
Most management tools for VMware only offer an IT-centric view of your virtual infrastructure and do not allow virtual resources to be managed or prioritized by business needs—for example, by customer or by SLA—which makes analysis and management difficult. Can you tell which virtual machines (VMs) customers are actually using during a billing period? Are there orphaned VMs that should be decommissioned? Can you monitor VMs and escalate issues according to SLAs? With Veeam Business View, you can align management of your virtual infrastructure with the constructs of your business. Veeam Business View works in conjunction with other Veeam products to allow you to view and manage VMs from a functional or business standpoint, not just a technical standpoint.
Report on performance or resource usage by customer
Veeam Reporter provides unparalleled reporting on your virtual infrastructure, with both technical and business perspectives on configuration and usage. Learn to whom VMs belong and ensure this correlates with your current customer database. Keep track of resources, analyze storage consumption, and generate reports for health checks, chargeback analysis, capacity planning and auditing.
Deliver on SLAs
Meet and exceed service levels with business-focused monitoring and alerting. With Veeam Monitor, you can proactively monitor VMware infrastructure from a traditional IT-centric view, or according to SLAs, customers, or any other category you define.
Monitor everything from a single console
Get a business-oriented and cohesive view of your physical and virtual environment—and the applications and services running there—with Veeam. If you have Microsoft System Center Operations Manager or HP Operations Manager, Veeam protects your investment in those monitoring systems with the nworks Management Pack and the nworks Smart Plug-in. Publish VMware performance data and VMware vCenter events directly to your existing Microsoft or HP console, unify management of your physical and virtual resources, and free your VMware administrators from routine fire-fighting and troubleshooting.
Availability and data protection are top of mind for customers going to the cloud. When choosing a service provider, backup options are often a prime consideration. Veeam provides the most robust solution for data protection with Veeam Backup & Replication, which allows you to create tiered SLAs and extend the scope of backup and recovery services. Deliver improved RPOs and RTOs by leveraging advancements in VMware vSphere and vStorage, Veeam Backup & Replication provides much faster backup cycles—up to 10 times faster for incremental backups and up to 5 times faster for full backups. This means you can back up customer data more often—for example, once an hour instead of once a day—and improve recovery point objectives (RPOs). And with streamlined and granular recovery, you can also improve recovery time objectives (RTOs). Offer extra protection with near-CDP With this feature, you can offer 24×7x365 availability with a near-zero RTO and a 5-minute RPO. Veeam Backup & Replication updates VM replicas as often as every 5 minutes, providing near-continuous data protection. And because many VMs can be replicated to a single inexpensive host, you can provide this level of protection at a fraction of the cost of traditional CDP.
Restore individual files and folders
Veeam allows you to instantly recover files from Windows and Linux VMs both to the latest state, or to a specific point in time. And it doesn’t require restoring the entire VM image. Imagine the competitive differentiation or premium service you can offer with this capability.
With the Veeam SDK you can integrate Veeam Backup & Replication into your
existing workflow and increase the productivity and efficiency of data protection
and restoration activities.
Reduce storage cost
Veeam Backup & Replication implements data compression and inline deduplication
to minimize storage costs and network traffic. Deduplication and compression,
along with synthetic backups and white space removal, allow you to reduce
storage consumption by up to 80%.
