How tough is it to get out of AWS and Azure?

Extremely tough. Everything is designed for you to consume, consume and consume. Then taking the data back is expensive. It’s zero expensive to put the data in. It’s extremely expensive to take that data out. Veeam provides our Cloud Mobility, where we can take your AWS workload, backup on-premise and convert it to VMware, Azure or to really anything.

Totally. Today, lots of customers are thinking, ‘How do I move some data from public cloud back to on-premise?’ Because public cloud is expensive and complex. There has to be a balance and there has to be freedom. Veeam provides that freedom because we are hardware- and cloud-agnostic. We’re in the middle.

At that point, they start to think, ‘How do I bring my mission-critical [data] back on-premise?’
