Veeam Dell EMC PowerStore Plug-In Highlights

PowerStore snapshots can be used to directly drive file, application and complete VMware VM recovery, including Veeam’s Instant VM Recovery all done from a storage snapshot on the PowerStore system.

Veeam’s built-in integration with Dell EMC PowerStore reduces the impact on production environments and improves Restore Point Objectives (RPOs) by offering the ability to take backups at any time.

Backup from Storage Snapshots: Lower the additional impact from backup activities on the environment by retrieving virtual machine (VM) data from Storage Snapshots.

• Quickly and easily recover: Individual items or entire VMs with Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots.

• On-Demand Sandbox: Use Storage Snapshots to create isolated copies of your production environment in just a few clicks, for fast, easy developing, testing and troubleshooting.

• Snapshot orchestration at primary storage: In addition to a backup chain, a Veeam backup job can save snapshots and manage their retention separately.

Key Benefits:

  • Fast, application-aware, image-based backups directly from Storage Snapshots as often as necessary
  • Protect data from ransomware and other threats with immutable backups
  • Recover guest OS files, application items, or even an entire VM
  • Perform granular and VM recovery from PowerStore replicated storage snapshots
  • Restore directly from Storage Snapshots, without staging snapshot contents to disk and intermediate restores
  • Reduce the time needed to mount snapshots, lowering your recovery time objectives (RTOs)
  • Leverage backup copies to test and troubleshoot identical copies of production VMs in an isolated environment
  • Automatically tier backups from PowerStore storage snapshot to cloud object storage

Summary

The Veeam Dell EMC PowerStore plug-in allows data transfer from the storage snapshot with little to no impact on the production application. Customers can increase backup efficiencies, enable flexible recovery options and simplify IT operations to deliver a higher return on their storage investments. Learn more at veeam.com.
