HPE and Veeam have partnered to offer the market an integrated data protection solution.
The partnership involves the use of HPE hardware as a backbone, while the software is from Veeam.

“This alliance of best of breed hardware with award-winning software allows organisations of any size, from small to enterprise, to create solutions that meet their specific environmental requirements,” said Kamal.
