6 Reasons to Leverage Pure Storage FlashArray//C and Veeam Backup & Replication for Immutable Windows-Based Backup

Need immutability but don’t have the in-house skills to create and manage a Veeam hardened repository?

The list of solutions that have immutability for Veeam Backup & Replication with Windows-based backup repositories is pretty short. If you want to keep your Veeam Backup & Replication backup storage on MS Windows, and still have immutable backups, consider Pure Storage FlashArray//C for your backup storage.

Here are six reasons to consider Pure Storage FlashArray//C with Veeam Backup & Replication for immutable backups:

  1. Enable data immutability for increased security. FlashArray//C, with its immutable SafeMode storage snapshots, provides immutability for Veeam Backup & Replication backup repositories. Simply set up a schedule of SafeMode snapshots for your backup repository storage volumes and specify the duration of the immutability to protect your backups from both malicious and accidental threats.
  2. Reduce data to optimize capacity. The FlashArray Purity operating system performs compression and granular data deduplication to achieve 67-75% data reduction. Additionally, the storage efficiencies of the ReFS Block Cloning file system improves overall data reduction and total cost of ownership.
  3. Get industry-leading customer support. Pure1, Pure’s AI-driven data-services platform, delivers proactive monitoring and support to identify and resolve issues before customers are even aware of the issue. This, along with the quality of their storage products, is a major contributor to Pure’s unmatched Net Promoter Score of over 85.

    The final three reasons come directly from the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage (figure 1).

  4. Vertically integrated DirectFlash modules are managed directly by the Purity OS, ensuring consistent performance and optimized costs at the media level.
  5. Evergreen portfolio provides flexible consumption options ranging from all-CapEx to all-OpEx, and a hybrid model in the middle, where hardware is capex and software is OpEx.
  6. Customers praise the ease of deployment and ease of use, resulting in savings on operational expenses.
