Veritas Technologies, a multi-cloud data management solutions provider and Nutanix an enterprise cloud computing solutions maker, have partnered to help joint customers benefit from greater protection for all virtualised workloads running on Nutanix, as well as application mobility across clouds, while remaining open to any hardware, hypervisor or cloud.

As part of the partnership, Veritas NetBackup 8.1 the company's flagship data protection solution, is now certified to protect workloads virtualised on AHV, Nutanix's native hypervisor.

Through NetBackup 8.1, joint customers will also now be able to optimise and protect the movement of data and workloads faster within the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud to other public, private or hybrid cloud environments.

According to the two vendor, the collaboration is designed to address two key challenges joint customers face.

The extended partnership between Veritas and Nutanix allows joint customers the following benefits: Faster backup and recovery of Nutanix virtual workloads, combined with powerful deduplication technology with Veritas NetBackup CloudCatalyst, greater business continuity with Nutanix's built-in infrastructure resiliency that is further enhanced by Veritas with rapid recovery of business-critical applications and data and the ability to confidently and rapidly deploy next-generation, scale-out, multi-petabyte, hyperconverged workloads with NetBackup Parallel Streaming.

Rama Kolappan, vice president, Product Management and Alliances, Veritas, said: "Organisations today require a data management strategy for data spread across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments that require a proven, high-performance backup and recovery technology designed to accommodate the most demanding workloads."

Kolappan added that with the combined power of Nutanix and Veritas that blends leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and enterprise cloud with the premier backup and recovery solutions, customers can now protect a vast array of enterprise workloads.

"Today's organisations must plan for a hybrid IT environment with users requiring more versatile solutions that are open to any hardware, hypervisor or cloud," said Venugopal Pai, vice president, Strategic Alliances and Business Development at Nutanix. "Our expanded partnership with Veritas will help joint customers meet this need, providing holistic data protection and management for critical enterprise workloads across multi-cloud environments."
