The combination of Veeam’s Availability solutions with NetApp E-series, AltaVault, ONTAP, All-Flash FAS, and hybrid cloud solution offerings, help organizations simplify IT operational management, lower costs, and attain recovery point and recovery time objectives (RTPO™) of seconds – not hours and days, per legacy solutions – for all applications and data. This agreement will equip 4,000 NetApp resellers globally to deliver NetApp/Veeam integrated Availability solutions.

“We are excited to expand the success of our NetApp alliance from product integration to a full resell agreement that includes NetApp Data Fabric solutions,” said Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President of Veeam. “We are committed to our partner ecosystem and adding Veeam to the NetApp price list simplifies the process for our partners to deliver highly differentiated solutions that accelerate business transformation and drive the highest levels of performance, efficiency and 24.7.365 availability across multi-cloud environments. We are confident our Availability solutions will enhance the NetApp Data Fabric experience for our joint customers.”
