Backup, recovery and data management solutions provider, Veeam Software, has partnered with Lenovo to develop the NEW Lenovo TruScale Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution. Lenovo users will get ‘pay as you go’ BaaS via Lenovo’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform as Veeam becomes the first data protection solution added to TruScale.
The unified solution helps protect data, manage exploding data volumes, and handle the increasing performance and multi-workload availability demands of a 21st century infrastructure. This solution is designed to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) with a flexible cost model.
“From resource constraints to ransomware attacks, IT organizations are faced with the constant risk of downtime and data loss,” said John Jester, Chief Revenue Officer at Veeam. “As a leader of Modern Data Protection, we’re proud to be a part of Lenovo TruScale to deliver expert-built and managed BaaS and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). This new Veeam and Lenovo solution will help enterprises reduce the complexity of modernizing their data protection strategy from legacy solutions and ensure confidence in the protection of their data. They can focus on what matters most — their customers, innovation, and strategic initiatives to propel their business forward.”
“We are excited to have Veeam as a key element of the Lenovo TruScale platform to help customers accelerate their digital transformation and innovate faster,” said Dale Aultman, VP, and GM of TruScale and Managed Services, Solutions and Services Group, Lenovo. “Lenovo TruScale delivers the devices, infrastructure, services, and solutions, from pocket to cloud, that our customers need, with the simplicity and flexibility of a scalable consumption model. Veeam is the first data protection partner being added to TruScale for Data Management portfolio, allowing customers to control their data while letting Lenovo manage the infrastructure.
