How Blue Connections works with Veeam

For one of Victoria’s largest Cemeteries Trusts, Blue Connections delivered a multi-site HPE Nimble storage and Veeam solution simplifying their IT data landscape while ensuring “cloud ready” capabilities. Servicing production, disaster recovery, and backup storage workloads across the two locations, the Nimble HPE storage solution integrated with Veeam backup and replication has delivered our client simplified day to day operations, increased availability, and disaster recovery with less than 30 minutes RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) for critical workloads. The Nimble and Veeam combination proved to be a more cost effective and flexible solution for data backup services over an alternative Public Cloud offering for the ~210TB of data over a 3 year period. This proved to be a critical point in the decision process in moving forward with the solution, due to its ability to service multiple requirements within the IT data landscape.
