Advanced Integration for Pure Storage

Eleven features for driving All-flash Availability

In today’s 24×7 business world, IT can no longer wait while mission-critical applications are repaired, restored or replaced. Mission-critical application downtime is costly; the longer it takes to bring applications up, the bigger the hit to your bottom line.

Moreover, application data has become a critical business resource. Data analytics and AI deep learning require lots of data, the better you can train AI models and the more you can profit from business opportunities. However, data traditionally locked away in application silos needs to be freed from its application chains and made accessible whenever and wherever it is needed.

Finally, while hardware and software systems are more reliable today, they have also become more complex. This complexity opens up the possibility of more system failures and inadvertent data corruption and loss. In addition, security threats such as cyber threats and attacks can result in data loss or corruption.

Fortunately, the answer to these and similar IT concerns is better data protection and recovery, which Veeam  Availability Suite™ and its advanced data protection features can provide. Below, we will describe the features of Veeam Availability Suite, describe the features of Pure Storage and then discuss the benefits of Pure Storage® integration with Veeam’s Universal Storage API.
