When it comes to avoiding data loss, one of the best ways to meet this objective is to leverage storage systems to keep Availability levels high . Veeam introduced Backup from Storage Snapshots and Veeam Explorer™ for Storage Snapshots to address this need . The EMC VNX and VNXe series of hybrid flash storage are the latest storage arrays added to this feature . In this document, we’ll address what problem is solved by this integration, as well as how to connect a storage array to Veeam Availability Suite and what to look for to see immediate results .With Veeam’s integration with Data Domain Boost and the new enhancements in Veeam Availability Suite v9, you will see improved performance .
