INFINIDAT, the market's leading independent provider of petabyte-scale data storage systems, today announced integration with the Veeam Availability Platform, offering customers improved business continuity and lower risk of critical data loss. New INFINIDAT InfiniSnap snapshot integration helps customers of all sizes manage and protect on-premises and cloud-based VMware vSphere workloads.

To meet increasing demands and expectations associated with a continuing deluge of data, businesses require technology partners that offer always-on availability, preventing downtime and data loss. With the integration of INFINIDAT's InfiniSnap technology, a core component of the InfiniBox storage system, and the Veeam Availability Suite, a core component of the Veeam Availability Platform, INFINIDAT and Veeam offer customers exceptional value and simplify application consistency for comprehensive data protection. InfiniSnap provides the only snapshot technology at petabyte scale that delivers thousands of snapshots with no performance impact, and the Veeam Availability Suite allows for backup from snapshots with little impact on production storage environments.

Highlights of the INFINIDAT and Veeam integration include:

  • Backup from Storage Snapshots: lowers the impact from backup activities on a VMware environment by retrieving virtual machine data.
  • Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots: quickly and efficiently recovers individual items or entire VMs.
  • Veeam On-Demand Sandbox: creates complete isolated copies of a production environment in just a few clicks, for fast and easy developing, testing, analyzing and troubleshooting.
  • Snapshot Orchestration: improves recovery point objectives and mitigates potential data loss by using snapshot-only jobs to create additional, more frequent recovery points in the form of application-consistent or crash-consistent primary storage snapshots.

A single InfiniBox can store over five petabytes of data with a smaller carbon footprint than most petabyte-scale arrays and provides industry-leading performance and reliability. Unlike traditional enterprise solutions that rely on expensive flash hardware for performance, InfiniBox takes a software-centric approach, using machine learning algorithms to extract the highest performance and reliability out of standard hardware.

"For enterprise customers, the combination of INFINIDAT's petabyte-scale storage and Veeam Availability Platform offers an affordable answer for customers' demand and expectation of uninterrupted access to extremely large volumes of data," said Jacob Broido, INFINIDAT Chief Product Officer. "Our partnership helps customers transform their IT architectures while improving performance, reducing complexity and mitigating the risk of critical data loss."

Veeam Availability Platform delivers Availability for all workloads - virtual, physical, cloud - from a single management console, extending Veeam's leadership position as the No.1 Availability provider for any app, any data, on any cloud.

"INFINIDAT brings another layer of enterprise-scalability to Veeam Availability Platform," said Carey Stanton, Vice President Global Alliances at Veeam. "Together, we help solve the current and emerging Availability challenges our customers face. With Veeam and INFINIDAT solutions working together, customers will see better performance and reliability at petabyte-scale, assuring their data is available and their business is protected."

The INFINIDAT Plug-In for Veeam Backup & Replication was developed using the Veeam Universal Storage API and supports Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 and is now available for download from
