Ransomware-sicherer mit der neuen Veeam Data Platform™ - Was Sie als Veeam Backup & Replikation™ Kunde wissen sollten

Since 01.04.2023, the new Veeam Data Platform has fully integrated previous Veeam solutions: From backup and recovery, to monitoring and reporting, to recovery orchestration - making itself and its customers more cyber resilient. What you as a Veeam customer need to know now.

Veeam Data Platform™: Strong Cyber Resilience Solution

With the release of Veeam Backup & Replication™ v12 in February, Veeam has now also introduced a platform strategy: With functionalities for data protection, monitoring and orchestration, the new Veeam Data Platform™ offers an all-round solution for your cyber resilience with the aim of ensuring better protection against ransomware attacks.

From 01.04.2023, previous product solutions in this area are now fully superseded and will be continued in the Veeam Data Platform. The new Veeam Data Platform thus offers customers a clear model, staggered in product packages.

Customer information for Veeam Backup & Replication™ and Veeam ONE™

For customers of the previous software products delivered under the new Veeam Data Platform, only the product name in the contracts will change for the continued contract term. You will now find your product under the designation:

  • Veeam Data Platform Essentials, formerly Veeam Backup Essentials™ - contains Veeam Backup & Replication up to, as usual, 50 VMs maximum - interesting as an option for SMBs.
  • Veeam Data Platform Foundation, formerly Veeam Backup & Replication™ , also includes Veeam Backup & Replication.
  • Veeam Data Platform Advanced, formerly Veeam Availability Suite™, includes Veeam Backup & Replication™ and Veeam ONE™ - the most frequently chosen option by our customers.
  • Veeam Data Platform Premium is a new addition that bundles Veeam Backup & Replication™, Veeam ONE™ and Veeam Recovery Orchestrator™.

Besides the name, the modular structure of the platform solution is particularly new. All editions include Veeam's proven Backup & Replication and Instant Recovery solutions. Advanced and Premium also include functions to increase failover security, including monitoring, analysis and recovery. The software components included in each edition, including the corresponding licenses, continue to be the same as the familiar Veeam solutions. Only the Premium Edition offers a new package for companies using the former Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator.

For Veeam Backup & Replication V12, Veeam promotes over 500 new features and functions. An overview of the most important new features can be found here.

The price list for the new packaged solutions has also been updated together with associated SKUs. Our Veeam partnership as a Veeam Silver Cloud & Service Provider still ensures that we can offer our customers the service at the usual price package. 

Our recommendation

For companies interested in features of Veeam Backup & Replication™, the Advanced Edition (formerly Availability Suite) is most frequently the appropriate choice. It combines Veeam Backup & Replication with VeeamONE - and thus includes in-depth, intelligent monitoring to detect and solve backup or recovery problems even before they arise.
