Veeam Availability Platform: Any App, Any Data, Any Cloud
Michael Cade, Global Technologist, Product Strategy

Go beyond backup, Availability is only the starting point.
It’s not backup. It’s how to use data, how to use applications. That’s the challenge today. Backup is just a tool—the main challenge is how to use data anytime, anywhere in applications within the cloud. Data-driven businesses of all sizes are looking to evolve beyond backup and availability to orchestration, automation, and beyond. They are looking for a way to make data easier to access, manage, and secure.
