Scality is excited to announce that both ARTESCA and RING are now Veeam Ready validated for Veeam 12.
Why is this important? It’s confirmation that Scality storage solutions are compatible with Veeam Backup & Replication™ features.
Being validated as Veeam Ready requires completion of a solution qualification process to assure functional and performance standards are met. By attaining this status, Scality customers and partners can rest assured that we support the features of the latest version of Veeam.
Veeam + Scality: The best in backup and data protection
Having worked closely with Veeam on early access versions of the latest Veeam Ready program, this is further validation of how we at Scality are helping ensure our customers can back up to the best.
Veeam has been Scality’s #1 data protection partner for years. We help hundreds of Veeam customers manage hundreds of petabytes of backup data every day. Our team worked closely with Veeam product management and engineering to ensure complete support of the many cool features included in the latest version of Veeam Data Platform (v12). In fact, Scality was selected as an inaugural launch partner for the February 2023 release.
Scality supports the following features of Veeam 12:

Diving deeper into Direct to Object Storage and SOSAPI
With Veeam 12, Scality’s products support all tiers of enterprise Veeam deployments: performance, capacity and long-term retention. This simplified architecture and compatibility with Veeam Backup & Replication™ gives customers ultimate flexibility to deploy the architecture best suited for their needs.
SOSAPI allows Veeam and Scality to develop tighter integrations between our products. The screenshot below shows how Scality’s products are now “S3-integrated” with Veeam and allow Veeam to pull capacity information directly from Scality’s products.
