WOW! Business has become a member of the Veeam Cloud Provider (VCP) program, enabling Veeam customers to backup data offsite by targeting the WOW! Business cloud infrastructure.
The Veeam Cloud Directory provides a platform for existing Veeam users to find and connect with trusted cloud partners without the cost and complexity of offsite infrastructure. Veeam Cloud Connect provides a simple and secure platform to backup to a WOW! Business Cloud Repository. Additional integration with Production Cloud Infrastructure provides a disaster recovery option.
“More and more businesses of all sizes are looking for an offsite data repository to replace tape and other onsite storage media,” said Brad Cheedle, senior vice president of WOW! Business. “Joining the Veeam Cloud Provider program enables us to offer a better level of data protection than many businesses currently have when storing and backing up data inside their own buildings and offices. As a VCP, WOW! Business can provide simple, cost-effective offsite backup for any Veeam customer, on-net or off-net, from anywhere in the U.S.”
The annnouncement follows an agreement WOW! Business recently reached to join the Telx Cloud Xchange Ecosystem. As part of Telx’s Cloud Xchange, customers have access to WOW! Business’ cloud-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS), business continuity and disaster recovery services.
“Offering existing Veeam users a cloud-solution that utilizes the same familiar interface they have today makes it extremely easy to take advantage of a redundant, offsite solution,” added Brad Cheedle, SVP of business services for WOW!
