It’s quite likely that many if not most of these VARs were already reselling Veeam.
NetApp is reselling Veeam data protection software. Veeam Availability Suite and Backup & Replication will be available with NetApp E-series, AltaVault, ONTAP, All-Flash FAS, and hybrid cloud product offerings, sold by NetApp directly or through its channel. That means Veeam products are now on NetApp's price list and around …
Data protection vendor Veeam has revealed it’s working to productise the Salesforce backup tools built for its own use.
Senior veep for product management Anton Gostev revealed the new product in his weekly email summary of Veeam’s R&D forums.
Announced in October and currently the subject of a holding page, the product is now also available in a private beta.
Data management software vendor Veeam has offered a snapshot (pardon the pun) of how its customers put different public clouds to work.
Senior vice president Anton Gostev's weekly missive to the Veeam community yesterday detailed how the November 2020 version 10 release of the vendor's software changed customer behaviour.
Gostev reported that of the five largest object storage repositories tended by Veeam, three were in Azure blob storage, on was in on-premises S3-compatible storage and the other was in Amazon S3. These individual object storage repositories were also five times larger than those Veeam had seen before, and ranged from from 1.8PB to 1PB.
Backup vendor Veeam is almost certainly going to ditch per-socket licensing.
Senior veep for product management Anton Gostev has floated the idea for months in user forums, but last week revealed that the change is now all-but a fait accompli.
"All in all, it is looking like Veeam will in the end go ahead and stop selling Socket-based licenses sometime next year, just as I expected."
NetApp has confirmed it is closing down the standalone Advanced Technology Group (ATG) – an incubation unit that was part of the office of the CTO and once described as the "ideas factory".
ATG, which sources said was the closest thing NetApp had to an internal lab, has fallen foul of this week's expenses purge that will see 5 per cent of the 11,000-strong global workforce leave the organisation.
In a statement, NetApp said: "In our realignment of our resources at NetApp, we are changing our approach to advanced technology and our industry standards body participation. We're tightly aligning those functions to the business so that we can be more responsive to the rapidly changing demand of the market and customers.
NetApp boss George Kurian has confirmed a guidance-beating 5 per cent revenue jump for Q1 of its fiscal '21 – while also admitting to chopping the same percentage of staff in layoffs, as first revealed yesterday by The Register.
The CEO said cuts had been made in areas "not particularly aligned to our go-forward priorities" and confirmed staffers at scale-out, all-flash storage platform SolidFire were among those hit, noting a shift by the company to core enterprise usage.
"We are narrowing our focus with the SolidFire and HCI portfolio to the high-margin parts of the market," said Kurian.
Exclusive Perennial cloud-contender NetApp has pruned its workforce on the eve of its quarterly results.
“NetApp is realigning resources and investments to best capture these opportunities and position the company for long-term success,” the enterprise IT supplier told The Register in a statement.
“We continue to sharpen our focus on markets where we have both a significant presence and clear competitive advantage, specifically with our storage software and systems and cloud data services.”
