Veeam Software, a leader in backup solutions that deliver cloud data management, has announced its participation at GITEX Technology Week.
As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to help regional organisations transition to the cloud and embrace Digital Transformation, executives from Veeam will share the company’s vision for cloud data management, delivering live demonstrations of Veeam Availability Platform – a complete solution to help customers evolve the way they manage data, from policy to behaviour-based and make it smarter and self-governing, ensuring it’s available across any application and any cloud infrastructure.
Talking about the company’s participation at GITEX, Claude Schuck, Regional Manager, Middle East at Veeam said: “As the importance of data has grown to drive every aspect of the digital business, so has the need for solutions that ensure information is available at any time, no matter where it resides.
“There is a new expectation for data in today’s enterprise – data must move to a higher state of intelligence and be able to anticipate need and meet demand. Data must also move securely across multi-cloud infrastructures and meet the expectations of the mobile, always-on world.”
“Given our leadership position and market leading technologies, GITEX is an opportunity to turn the spotlight on the criticality of cloud data management,” continued Schuck.
“CIOs and IT managers need to understand that ensuring instant and reliable data availability requires an evolution in how it is managed from policy-driven to behaviour-driven, leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to enable data to back up autonomously, migrate to the right location based on the business need and to secure itself during anomalous activity.”
According to the 2019 Veeam Cloud Data Management Report, 72% of organisations are looking to embrace cloud data management and are transitioning to cloud strategies. As part of the same survey, 80% of respondents from the Middle East see productivity benefits of intelligent data management.
Only 24% of enterprises in the Middle East describe their digital initiatives as mature. To help them on their journey, at GITEX, Veeam will educate regional organisations on this journey and outline the ‘5 Stages of Cloud Data Management’:
- Stage 1: BACKUP – Protect all workloads using backups, complemented by snapshots and replication where appropriate, to ensure they are always recoverable and available in the event of outages, attack, loss or theft
- Stage 2: CLOUD MOBILITY – Expands Stage 1 to include multi-cloud environments – backing up and moving data to, from and within the cloud
- Stage 3: VISIBILITY – View the full breadth of your data, accompanied by the infrastructure that it passes through and resides on, so you can pivot from reactive to proactive management for better business decisions
Stage 4: ORCHESTRATION – Optimise data utilisation across multi-cloud environments with workﬂows that ensure consistent execution of otherwise manual and complex recovery orchestration and data-management tasks
- Stage 5: AUTOMATION – Data becomes self-managing by learning to protect itself with appropriate SLAs, methods and locations to meet business objectives or comply with broader IT initiatives.
Veeam will have its own dedicated stand #C20 in Hall 7 at DWTC.
