Key Data Protection Trends
“THEY NEEDED A PARTNER THAT COULD TAKE ACTION QUICKLY, THAT COULD RESPOND TO THEIR NEEDS, COULD TURN AROUND COMPLEX SOLUTIONS RAPIDLY.”– STEVEN RODIN, VEEAM CLOUD SERVICE PROVIDER STORAGEPIPE
Steven commented that with the almost overnight shift to remote work, everyone had to quickly adjust; the Storagepipe team and their customers alike. “There were more people wanting to make decisions more rapidly. Organizations needed to make important IT decisions even during the pandemic, and they needed a partner that could take action quickly, that could respond to their needs, and could turn around complex solutions rapidly. So that was what we were focusing on, not just that we had the right solution but that we were delivering it quickly and effectively, even from a team working remotely.”
“THE TIME IS JUST RIGHT FOR BUSINESSES TO MOVE INTO THEIR TRANSFORMATIONAL JOURNEY.”– ANTHONY SPITERI, VEEAM SOFTWARE
When asked what the important trends he’s seen come out of the pandemic, Anthony shared, “I think when you think about where we’ve come from over the past 10 years, with the move from on-premises service, virtualization, modern data platforms, software as a service, infrastructure as a service, just general cloud adoption, it’s been almost this Goldilocks situation where the time is just right for businesses to move more into their transformational journey.” What was his second big data protection trend?

Many businesses with on-premises workloads are migrating some systems to the cloud and often end up with hybrid cloud environments in need of unified protection. Discover how Veeam managed services are developed and supported by Storagepipe’s in-house technical team of certified Veeam Architects and Engineers, who work closely with Veeam as new and enhanced functionalities continue to be added to the data protection platform.
For example, over the past 18 months Storagepipe has seen several services boom in popularity as businesses and organizations accelerate their digital transition to cloud-based data protection. “We’ve seen some tremendous momentum behind our Office 365, Microsoft 365 backup solution. That’s been a really big driver, from one of Veeam’s key products,” shared Steven. “Customers at first were looking to do that themselves and looking to do that on-prem, but we saw more customers moving to outsource that, moving to a managed service especially when they were out of the office.”
“WE’VE TAKEN THE TIME DURING THE PANDEMIC TO INVEST IN OUR PUBLIC CLOUD SERVICES, AND THAT’S BEEN BOOMING.”– STEVEN RODIN, VEEAM CLOUD SERVICE PROVIDER STORAGEPIPE
When discussing data protection trends, the conversation often naturally turns to how to safeguard workloads living in the public cloud, or in a hybrid cloud model. “We’ve taken the time during the pandemic to invest in our public cloud services, and that’s been booming,” Steven shares. “We’ve seen the Azure and the AWS backup solutions that we’ve launched as a managed cloud service during the pandemic, really grow in the last year since launching with Veeam’s Backup for Azure and Backup for AWS.”
