Just as in the on-premises days with customers backing up and protecting their data, the need persists with SaaS solutions to backup and protect this same critical information. Veeam Backup for Office 365 delivers on this need and with the rapid rise in adoption for Azure we’re seeing across our customer base, Veeam is excited to build from our work with Microsoft and deliver a native backup solution developed specifically for Azure-based workloads.”

Notable benefits of the new version of the solution include the ability for customers to:

  • Leverage unlimited scalability with unlimited storage capacity.
  • Reduce costs with object storage and pay-as-you-go.
  • Simplify deployment in the public cloud.

Tad Brockway, corporate vice president for Azure, Storage, Media, and Edge at Microsoft Corp., also added, “Microsoft has a long-standing relationship with Veeam, and our validation of the overall collaboration includes support for Veeam’s innovations, including Microsoft Office 365 and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure. As cloud storage becomes increasingly popular as a data backup strategy, Veeam’s support for Azure Blob Storage enables organizations to eliminate the need for on-premises storage, enabling faster RTOs, improving availability, reducing costs, and accelerating our customer’s journey to the cloud.”
