NexGen Storage and Veeam Partner to Deliver Accelerated VM Recovery and Enhanced Disaster Recovery
LOUISVILLE, CO – Aug. 23, 2012 – NexGen Storage today announced it has formed a technology alliance partnership with Veeam Software to deliver instant virtual machine (VM) restores, faster backups, and offsite replication capabilities for disaster recovery (DR). The new offering, available to NexGen customers at no additional cost, allows customers to replicate data from a NexGen Storage system to any other storage system supported by Veeam Software and protects existing storage system investments.
"NexGen’s cutting-edge solid-state technologies deliver fast VM recovery speeds when combined with Veeam Backup & Replication,” said Rick Hoffman, vice president of worldwide alliances and channels at Veeam Software. “We are excited to partner with NexGen Storage to bring these compelling, best-in-class solid-state storage solutions to customers.”
With Veeam’s Virtual Machine-based replication, NexGen customers can seamlessly deploy replication-based failover (same-site or remote-site) for enhanced DR. Customers can protect existing storage system investments by repurposing aging systems as replication targets. In addition, host-based replication offers a simplified, one-step replication process.
NexGen’s n5 Series storage systems deliver PCIe SSD storage with QoS (quality of service), and enable customers to achieve high performance and extreme efficiency. NexGen offers a solid-state performance guarantee that promises 10 times more IOPs per rack unit than any other disk-based array or 3 times more IOPs per rack unit than any conventional hybrid array, which ensures lightning-fast restores.
“Organizations are being challenged to reduce IT system cost and management complexity, while at the same time meet the demanding workload requirements of virtualized environments,” said Jeff Janukowicz, research director, solid state storage at IDC. “With its recently announced performance guarantee and collaboration with Veeam to deliver high-speed backup and recovery, NexGen is demonstrating the value of its purpose-built PCIe SSD architecture that avoids the bottlenecks of conventional solid-state implementations."
Veeam Backup & Replication provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualized applications and data for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments. Veeam Backup & Replication combined with NexGen’s n5 Series storage systems leverages next generation PCIe SSD storage technology and integrated backup images to enable VM recovery within seconds versus minutes compared with conventional storage solutions. The combined solution delivers faster backups and more frequent recovery points, and supports superior recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO).
“Combining NexGen’s PCIe SSD storage system with Veeam’s leading backup and replication capabilities delivers an affordable and easy to manage enterprise-class backup and DR solution for virtualized environments,” said Chris McCall, vice president of marketing, NexGen Storage. “We are pleased to partner with Veeam to bring our customers unparalleled solutions and fast, guaranteed performance in demanding mixed workload environments.”
Pricing and availability
Veeam Backup & Replication will be available with NexGen’s n5 Series storage solutions on Aug. 28, 2012 and will be offered at no additional cost. List pricing for NexGen’s n5 Series systems ranges from $55,000 to $108,000. For more information, please contact NexGen Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NexGen Storage is offering demonstrations of its n5 Series performance management capabilities integrated with VMware’s vCenter Server and is showcasing its PCIe solid-state storage system next week at booth #2334 at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco. Those visiting the booth will have the opportunity to win noise cancelling headphones and an iPad, plus learn more about NexGen’s industry-first solid-state performance guarantee.
