Wasabi ist Veeam-ready: Die Kombination von Backup und Replizierung mit unveränderlichem S3 Object Storage bietet mehr Stabilität und Schutz Ihrer Daten als herkömmliche Lösungen.

Wasabi S3 Object Storage in combination with Veeam Backup & Replication V12 in the hybrid cloud

Skip backups in complex scale-up architectures and enjoy the benefits provided by the cloud: Wasabi is Veeam-ready. The combination of backup and replication with immutable S3 object storage offers more resilience and data protection than conventional solutions.

All companies need to be able to restore their assets quickly and securely in a disaster situation. At the same time, they need to deal with rapidly growing data volumes - a significant cost factor when using recognised hyperscalers.

Data retention times, compliance rules and ransomware attacks require modern solutions that are capable of more than just storage and backup.

 

Nowadays, the vulnerabilities caused by errors or employee behaviour are also increasingly prompting companies to look at resilience from a backup perspective and build cyber resilience.

More secure, scalable, cost-effective with the 3-2-1-1-0 rule

With Veeam Backup & Replication and Wasabi Secure Cloud Object Storage with Object Lock, backups cannot be deleted or modified (encrypted) without your consent thanks to the 3-2-1-1-0 rule.

 

Local systems or tape solutions are vulnerable to cyber-attacks, malicious encryption or accidental deletion or destruction. The cloud object storage approach offers a modern air gap solution that ensures the integrity and restore capability of the data as an unalterable copy.

Wasabi enhances multi-factor authentication (MFA) with multi-user authentication (MUA). This additional level of protection ensures that attacks can be prevented not only from the outside, but also from the inside thanks to a 6-eyes principle. This means that cloud accounts can only be deleted with the confirmation of three users.

 

Combined with Veeam's ‘Four Eyes’ function, which also requires authorisation for critical actions, such as 

  • Deletion of backup files or snapshots,
  • Removing backup repositories and service providers from the backup infrastructure
  • Configuration of MFA settings for each user

and immutability as a key feature of Wasabi S3 object storage, Wasabi and Veeam Backup & Replication v12 provide significant benefits for modern cyber resilience for hybrid cloud data.

 

This joint solution simplifies offsite backup considerably reducing the complexity of complying with the 3-2-1-1-0 rule.

Direct-to-cloud backup - maximum flexibility and cost-effectiveness

Backup redundancies are considerably reduced with primary and secondary direct-to-cloud copies.

  • By moving their backups directly to the cloud via Wasabi and Veeam, companies can back up their data much more cost-effectively and flexibly.
  • Veeam servers can send backups directly to the cloud, as well as backups orchestrated by the Veeam Data Platform through Veeam agents directly to Wasabi.
  • These agents now support NAS backups directly to the cloud as well as end-2-end backup for Mac, Windows and Linux.

Veeam's Direct-to-Cloud feature reduces the overall cost and complexity of backup management by using cloud storage as a central repository, connected to the organisation's infrastructure.

 

This approach optimises backups, improves overall data protection and eliminates potential vulnerabilities.
