Veritas highlights new vision for data management platform in ME
The vision addresses three pillars for enterprise data management; data protection, data availability and data insight
Veritas Technologies has unveiled its new vision for its data management platform through a range of solutions for cloud data management, designed to help organisations in the Middle East as they transform into digital businesses.
The vision addresses three pillars for enterprise data management, these are data protection, data availability and data insight. With its cloud data management solutions, Veritas will help organisations in the region manage the IT complexity of hybrid clouds with new capabilities that help them drive more value from their data while reducing cost and business risk.
Mark Coates, emerging markets leader at Veritas, said: "The Veritas State of Hybrid Cloud research shows that today organisations leverage more than two hybrid cloud environments which highlights the need for them to ensure that their data is protected across physical, virtual and hybrid cloud environments.
"In a world and a region of digital transformation where information is everything, data becomes your key business asset. Data is growing exponentially and you can't solve that with hardware," added Coates. "A software-driven approach, which completely abstracts information from infrastructure, is the only path forward. Veritas' data management solutions help organisations achieve data protection, business resiliency and regulatory readiness across heterogeneous environments, whether on-premises or in the cloud."
Organisations want to seamlessly move data to and from the cloud to take advantage of the added operational efficiencies and flexibility delivered by cloud environments, and remain confident their data is protected. Building on existing support for cloud providers that includes Amazon Web Services and Google, future releases of Veritas NetBackup will add connector capabilities for other major cloud platforms.
Veritas is aligning with the open source community to help OpenStack users reap the benefits of a software-defined future. The Veritas HyperScale for OpenStack software defined storage solution will allow organisations to deploy their OLTP tier one and tier two applications on OpenStack environments and help ensure storage quality of service and application resiliency.
NetBackup will integrate with Veritas Resiliency Platform 2.1 so IT can orchestrate complex recoveries for thousands of virtual machines with single-click automation. Resiliency Platform allows organisations to implement a unified resiliency strategy for complex, multi-platform and multi-vendor hybrid cloud environments.
Designed for the hybrid cloud, Veritas NetBackup delivers agility and increases efficiency by providing an integrated solution for data protection, recovery and insight into an organisation's unstructured data. Together NetBackup and Information Map are a breakthrough solution to integrate data visibility and data protection, addressing the mounting challenges enterprises face managing unclassified, dark data.
