Veeam Software announced (on 11 June) a new part of the new Veeam Availability Suite v8, called Veeam Cloud Connect. The new functionality is designed for Veeam Cloud Providers (VCPs), both current VCPs and new service providers, and gives an easy way to host backups for Veeam’s customers. Veeam customers get a fully integrated, secure and efficient means to move backups to an offsite backup repository managed by the service provider of their choice, but without the upfront capital investment of an offsite infrastructure.
