In addition, Veeam unveiled support for archive object storage for all three leading hyperscale public cloud providers and expanded support for cloud-native backup and recovery with Amazon EFS (Elastic File System) and Azure SQL, according to the solution.

Veeam Announces New Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Amazon S3 Solutions

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v6 will deliver a new self-service portal for Microsoft Office 365 v6 and integration to Azure Archive and AWS S3 Glacier that will help organizations and end users handle their own storage, archive and backup tasks.

The new Office 365 Backup Copy to Azure Archive and AWS Amazon S3 Glacier enables partners and customers to quickly create secondary copies directly from object storage to Azure Archive, Amazon S3 Glacier and Glacier Deep Archive and select appropriate retention period options, according to Veeam.

Veeam also added support for its fourth hypervisor, Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) backup in response to customer demand and Veeam repository integration for Kasten K10 for Kubernetes. These solutions can help customers and partners prepare for the future of containerized product development and support DevOps and PlatformOps by expanding the data protection services of Kubernetes, according to the statement.
