Accelerated business outcomes with Google Cloud and Veeam.

whitePaper | August 20, 2021

Business Challenge Your organization’s lifeblood is its data. To continue to outpace competitors and deliver organizational results, you’re tasked with cloud acceleration to simplify data management, lower backup storage expenses, and ensure data and applications are highly available. Sounds simple but consider that you will need to migrate and secure existing workloads from on premises to the cloud, while continuing to protect data that may need to remain on premises. Additionally, you will need to ensure that any new services delivered natively via the cloud are safeguarded, alongside any virtual workloads, wherever they may reside! Solution Overview “Better Together” Security in the cloud is a shared responsibility between the cloud provider and the customer. Google Cloud is committed to doing its part to protect the underlying infrastructure, but the onus of securing your workloads still rests with you. Jointly, Google Cloud and Veeam® help you do just that by providing solutions that enable you to: • lower storage costs by tiering on-premises backup data to Google Cloud Storage (GCS), • seamlessly migrate and replicate on premises VMware solutions to Google Cloud VMware Engine (GCVE) • mitigate risk by providing native backup andrecovery for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) IaaS instances.
