Our client required the following:

  • A backup solution which needed to be supplied, delivered, commissioned and implemented


Nihka provided the client with the following solution:

  • VEEAM Backup and Replication with HPE StoreOnce

Veeam works with HPE StoreOnce to enable reduced backups and shorter restore times. With this combination, one gains an enhanced, secure data backup and recovery solution that offers:

  • Catalyst support for three times faster backup and restore performance than traditional NAS protocols
  • Faster synthetic full backup file creation and transformation for even shorter backup windows
  • The ability to combine multiple backup and protection capabilities into one solution

Benefits of the Solution:

  • HPE and Veeam environments can avoid data loss by retaining more data
  • Less downtime
  • HPE and Veeam can address the 3-2-1 rule a number of ways with backups on disk, replicated
  • virtual machines, backups on HPE StoreEver Tape, storage snapshots from primary storage systems (such as HPE 3PAR StoreServ arrays), cloud or service provider technologies, and more
  • Offline storage
