While the major storage array manufacturers typically have the ability to replicate array to array, they do not support replication at the VM level. This precludes replication from many datacenters or offices to one central location. It also leads to challenges in terms of supporting VMware Storage DRS as well as in backing up VMware vCloud Director.
VMware and Veeam share a similar focus on the virtualized data center and on the private cloud which utilizes virtualization as its underpinning technology. The combination of Nutanix and Veeam provide a great combination for protecting data in both environments.
Protecting the Modern Data Center
With today’s robust hardware (i.e. Nutanix) and virtualization technology, there is no reason why a virtualized workload shouldn’t run at least as fast as its physical counterpart. And virtualization brings capabilities such as High Availability and Fault Tolerance that completely mitigate server failure.
