City of Victoria selects backup and data management leader Veeam

City of Victoria has selected Veeam Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions, for providing modern data protection, backup and disaster recovery.

“Our goal is to always have 100 percent confidence that data remains protected and city services are always available, so when looking for new solutions, Veeam Backup and Replication stood out to us,” Mike Palmer, CIO for the City of Victoria said.

Veeam Backup & Replication enables City of Victoria to build business resiliency by simplifying backup and disaster recovery and increase its security posture by boosting ransomware protection – preventing, detecting and restoring data should a ransomware attack take place.

Veeam also provides total access, control and protection of city data with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365. Now, City of Victoria can back up 25 TB across 130 Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere VMs in Azure Stack HCI on-premises and send backup copies to tape, so data is air gapped regardless of it being stored on-premises or in the cloud.

Veeam gives City of Victoria’s IT team the ability to go back than 90 days for SharePoint and 30 days for Exchange items. This ease-of-use helps the city make sure data is always protected and accessible – saving at least 10 hours in troubleshooting time each week.
