Nutanix, Inc. has announced Nutanix Mine with Veeam. Currently in beta testing with select customers and partners, Nutanix Mine with Veeam combines the best of both companies’ innovation — Nutanix in enterprise cloud computing and Veeam in Cloud Data Management — for a full-stack solution enabling customers to quickly go from project planning to protection without the cost and overhead of standalone systems.
For companies looking to modernise their datacentre, managing separate silos of infrastructure for critical capabilities can be complex and time-consuming, taking away from business-driving initiatives. By fully integrating Veeam Backup & Replication with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, Nutanix Mine with Veeam makes it easy for customers to implement and manage their backup environment, helping ensure that business data is protected and IT can focus on delivering new capabilities.
“We worked closely with Veeam, our strategic partner, to develop Nutanix Mine with Veeam, ensuring that it can simplify the management and protection of data and applications that power our customers’ businesses,” said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer, Nutanix. “We’re excited that our joint customers will be able to easily plan, purchase, and manage their secondary storage environment alongside their primary datacentre operations. Reducing complexity in the datacentre so IT organisations can focus on supporting overall business growth is the foundation of our business.”
Sold by Nutanix, Nutanix Mine with Veeam can be deployed in minutes and simplifies the full lifecycle of data backup operations, including on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting. The offering combines highly-efficient storage working in concert with Veeam Backup and Replication, helping customers achieve comprehensive data protection for all their workloads — virtual, physical and private cloud —to meet increasing business demands for uptime and productivity.
“Veeam and Nutanix have a proven track record of collaboration and innovation. Bringing our individual, market-leading products together to deliver new, higher value solutions to our customers is an ideal move for our partners and customers,” said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Veeam. “Nutanix Mine with Veeam is the first Veeam alliance-delivered, turn-key secondary storage solution with Veeam Backup & Replication integrated to simplify each stage of the product lifecycle. Nutanix shares a common goal with Veeam to remove IT complexity and ensure application accessibility, making them an excellent partner for Veeam to go to market with for an integrated solution. Nutanix Mine with Veeam delivers a single, simple-to-deploy and easy-to-manage solution so our customers and partners can react more quickly to meet ever-changing data protection business demands.”
Nutanix and Veeam are currently beta testing the new product with select customers and partners.
“Our testing of Nutanix Mine with Veeam shows significant performance improvements over our current environment,” said Sean Gilliam, engineer at Ameritas, a life insurance, benefits, and financial services company with 3.2 million customers. “Proven scalability, and the flexibility to grow with our increasing business needs, is critical for us. This ensures we have the right backup and disaster recovery infrastructure in place protecting our data on a consistent and reliable basis.”
“Our customers depend on us for solutions that help them quickly scale up infrastructure to meet increasing availability demands, without the complexity and drain of additional IT overhead,” said Chris Hippensteel, System Administrator at New Resources Consulting, a management and information technology consulting company. “Nutanix Mine with Veeamruns like a champ. It brings everything together in a single simple HCI product that quickly deploys into any environment. We can go from proposal, to planning, and into production very quickly with the new comprehensive solution for integrated cloud data management.”
