“From outages to cyberattacks, the public sector is facing more challenges than ever before,” said Anand Eswaran, CEO at Veeam. “There is a lot of anxiety about the gap between how quickly an organization needs to get systems back online after an incident occurs, and how long it actually takes. That’s why our mission at Veeam is keeping customers and their businesses running. It starts with securing their data and ensuring that if the worst does happen, they can recover rapidly whether their data is on-premises, in the cloud or both. Central to that mission is working with great partners like Carahsoft to give public sector customers the confidence to know they can keep running no matter what happens.”
Through the new Veeam and Carahsoft partnership, public sector customers will have access to the newest product releases from Veeam, including the new Veeam Data Platform, which includes Veeam Backup & Replication™ (VBR) v12, provides best-in-class secure backup and fast reliable recovery that keeps business running. It brings together the latest features offered from Veeam into a single robust solution that is offered in three enterprise-grade editions for protecting Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes applications across complex and expanding IT environments and the increasing set of challenges facing every organization from outages to errors and ransomware.
