Backup and recovery are necessary services to ensure the business continuity of any organization. There are several threats to the running configurations and data stored on VMs provisioned via vRealize Automation including hardware failure, data corruption, accidental deletion, internal compromise, and ransomware, among others. Without the proper backup and recovery solution in place, organizations and end-users may suffer outages and data loss.
With the SovLabs vRealize Automation Backup-as-a-Service module for Veeam, organizations that utilize Veeam Backup and Recovery can now have fully automated policy-driven backups and self-service VM and file-level recovery directly within vRealize Automation, reducing the support burden, lowering risk, and increasing end-user satisfaction.
In a new category of software-defined end-to-end supported and pre-tested vRealize Automation integrations by SovLabs, organizations no longer have to deal with cloud management platform integration complexities. Manage your cloud without having to create or maintain workflow orchestration content and without worry of CMP or component upgrades breaking your IT processes.
