credentials into Cloud Edition.
Non-disruptive: No interruption
or impact to local backup or recovery operations.

"The Windows Azure cloud platform can provide IT organizations with an
affordable and highly available alternative to managing offsite backup
storage repositories and tape backups. We're pleased to work with Veeam
to make it easy for small to mid-sized organizations to take advantage
of the Windows Azure cloud."
Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst for Data Protection, Enterprise
Strategy Group (ESG)
"Improving backup and increased virtualization continue to be top
planned IT investments in 2013, which is just one of the reasons for
Veeam's success. Veeam was among the first to directly address the
unique protection challenges of highly virtualized environments, and
they have demonstrated an appetite to grow beyond those first successes
and continue innovating. Today, every IT conversation seems to have
cloud-considerations in it. So it should come as no surprise that Veeam
would be among the first vendors to pull it all together in providing a
simple, powerful solution for copying VM backups to the cloud."
Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage Software, IDC (News - Alert)
"Many customers see offsite backup as a necessary component for their
data protection and recovery strategy but stop short of actual
implementation because they see acquiring and managing an offsite
repository as too expensive and complicated. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition
helps to address these types of barriers to adoption of cloud technology
by making it easier for their customers to copy backups to the cloud."
Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software
"Small to mid-sized organizations now have a cost effective and
easy-to-use alternative to tape backups and establishing an offsite
backup repository. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition enables IT to quickly set
up scheduled copies to the public cloud of their choice, and the
software takes care of the rest, with regular reports and alerts that
keep backup admins fully informed on costs and backup status. We're
proud to have set the standard in virtualization for modern data
protection. With Veeam Backup Cloud Edition, we've raised the bar yet
again with a solution that's powerful, easy to use and affordable."
