Veeam Immutable Backups
Veeam Backup and Replication v11 now has the capability of performing Immutable Backups, which are tested and proven to be the equivalent of traditional "Air Gap" backups, providing the same protections as WORM or tape. Veeam Immutable Backups can function and are secure because of several properties of Linux and the XFS filesystem, most notably the immutable flag and one-time-use-credentials. Don't just take my word for it, click here to read the report and check out the compliance standards.
Real, manageable "air-gap" protection
Combined with an offsite repository (such as a Veeam Repository at VMsources!), Veeam Immutable Backups provide true protection against loss due to factors such as:
Malicious and vengeful users or former employees
VMsources is ready to begin Immutable Backups for your organization right away, either on-premises or with offsite protection in our datacenter.
It may be time to upgrade to vSphere 7
VMware vSphere 7 has been GA for almost exactly 1 year now. That's given all of the early adopters plenty of time to suffer through the problems and work out the kinks. We view vSphere 7 as incremental progression, rather than a landmark build. VMware has renamed a few things, and tweaked a few features, but for most of us, it is business as usual.
One notable change in vSphere 7 is that the Flash client is completely eliminated, removing attack vectors and security vulnerabilities by the truckload.
If your equipment is VMware vSphere 7 compliant, we highly recommend you upgrade at this time. Check your equipment for vSphere 7 compatibility here: https://vmware.com/go/hcl
We know that all HPE ProLiant DL and BL G9 servers are VMware vSphere ready, so go ahead and upgrade or call VMsources for a managed upgrade!
VMware vSphere 6.5 & 6.7 extended
Even if your servers won't support upgrading to VMware vSphere 7, there's good news. VMware has extended support for VMware vSphere 6.5 & 6.7 until October 2022, giving some users room to breathe.
VMware vSphere 6.0 is past end of life, however, and it is important to upgrade or discontinue production use of any VMware vSphere 6.0 based products.
VMware vCloud for DRaaS
We have recently upgraded our purpose-built VMware vCloud for DRaaS to VMware vSphere 7, and incorporated more than 150TB of all -SSD VMware vSAN Storage. What this means is that, in all likelihood, your VMs will operate much faster if you ever fail-over to DR, than they do on your Production system.
True Private Cloud Security
VMware vCloud and VMware vSAN Ready Node Compliance
About half the cost of the Big Cloud and other DRaaS providers
VMware vSAN Encryption-at-Rest is available for all of your DRaaS protected workloads for a nominal per-VM fee
DRaaS in a week or less!
VMsources is ready right now to take on new clients and have Disaster Recovery protection in-place in as little as a few days time, as long as it takes to seed your orginizations data. Remember, Hurricane Season, Fire Season, and Tornado Season are coming up fast - and Earthquake Season is year-round!
