Software, a leader in data protection and ransomware recovery, has unveiled the Lenovo TruScale Backup with Veeam in collaboration with technology giant Lenovo. This new service delivers a -like backup experience on-premises, offering scalable infrastructure to accommodate varying customer needs.

Securing data across environments

The newly launched service merges Lenovo ThinkSystem servers and storage solutions with Veeam's backup technologies and the scalability of Lenovo TruScale services. This combination provides a robust data protection solution that is deployable on-premises or co-located, aimed at reducing recovery times, simplifying IT processes, and ensuring data sovereignty.

“Businesses already have enough challenges when scaling their infrastructure quickly. TruScale Backup with Veeam brings them simplicity, not only in reducing IT complexity, but also helps ensure their data is protected and under their governance no matter where it is located. With Veeam's #1 data protection and ransomware recovery, our joint customers can spend their time focused on running their business,” said John Jester, Chief Revenue Officer at Veeam.

Meeting the demand for reliable data recovery

The demand for reliable backup solutions and data recovery services is increasing due to growing IT complexities and the constant evolution of cyber threats. A Gartner report predicts that by 2028, 75% of large enterprises will have adopted Backup as a Service (BaaS), compared to just 15% in 2024. An IDC survey from January 2023 showed that 47% of respondents utilised on-premises Storage as a Service (STaaS), with another 32% planning to adopt it within the year, driven by the need for flexible storage capacity and quicker deployment.

“Lenovo's TruScale Backup with Veeam is a strong choice for Backup as a Service for several reasons. Not only does it give customers the tactical advantage of ransomware protection with immutability by default, but TruScale provides right-sizing of the solution from the start, with cloud-like economics to scale up and down on demand. We're happy to collaborate with Veeam to bring these benefits and more to our customers,” said Dale Aultman, Vice President & General Manager, Hybrid Cloud Services at Lenovo.

Christophe Bertrand, Principal Analyst at theCUBE Research, also highlighted the strategic timing and integration benefits of the collaboration, stating, “It's no secret that IT organisations struggle with excessive complexity and data. The stringent requirements to deliver data protection service levels and cyber resilience have never been more crucial. Yet, many IT leaders struggle with integration challenges between the various layers of their data protection systems. That's why the collaboration between Lenovo and Veeam is so timely. It truly brings the best of both worlds for delivering orchestrated recoverability of data assets at scale in an integrated solution.”

Benefits of TruScale Backup with Veeam

The service simplifies the secure storage of data, adhering to the 3-2-1-1-0 backup rule without additional costs. This allows customers to create multiple copies of data, helping them meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) with high accuracy and zero errors in backups. Other benefits include:

  • A cloud-like experience and economics on-premises.
  • Enhanced backup reliability with detailed, self-managed virtual machine and file recovery.
  • Relief for IT teams from daily management tasks and capacity planning through scalable, on-demand service.
