Today, the consumerisation of IT underpins almost all the services we have come to rely on to live our modern lives. Activities as diverse as arranging a taxi through to internet banking, accessing streaming music services and, filing a tax return are all dependent on seamless and uninterrupted connection to a data centre.
Any type of interruptions to these services can be frustrating, but in a business context, it can mean the difference between productivity and stagnation which can erode trust from customers and partners alike. Considering the critical role that data plays in our lives, Veeam has declared and celebrates World Availability Day on March 30 each year.
Regular backups may be fine for individuals looking to protect personal data including photos and emails, but organisations and service providers today need unconditional access to their applications and data, anywhere at any time.
Veeam celebrates World Availability Day in recognition of the fact that for modern businesses and service providers, it’s not only about having backups of data anymore, it’s about being Available. Veeam helps organisations of any size and shape to achieve Availability for both their virtual and physical infrastructures, as well as provide data protection solutions in the cloud, whether private, public of hybrid.
As pioneers of Availability, Veeam is also inviting partners, media, analysts, and customers to Experience Availability at the upcoming VeeamON conference in New Orleans in May, where they can learn about what it takes to provide a modern Availability solution to ensure services are delivered smoothly and seamlessly.
Happy Availability Day and don’t hesitate to share with us on Twitter why #availability is important for you!
