Multi-cloud data management solution provider, Veritas Technologies, has launched Veritas Cloud Storage, a software-defined storage technology.

Combining analytics, machine learning and classification technologies, the new storage solutions helps customers manage their data more efficiently, while at the same time gaining more value from it.

Additionally, Veritas Cloud Storage supports organisations in the midst of data centre transformation, boasting lower costs, flexibility, as well as no vendor lock-in.

Johnny Karam, vice president emerging market, Veritas, said: "With the unprecedented growth of data driving a new wave of storage demands, it is imperative that enterprises deploy a software-defined storage strategy that is optimised for cost, performance and agility.

"As one of the early pioneers in software-defined storage, Veritas has a rich heritage in this space that spans more than 25 years. With these latest innovations, we are helping customers deploy software-defined storage solutions that turn dormant data into intelligent insights, helping businesses offer better customer experiences while delivering strong business outcomes." 

In addition to the launch of Veritas Cloud Storage, the company has also announced the general availability of Veritas Access Appliance, an integrated software-defined storage appliance that offers long-term data retention with multi-cloud capability. 

Amita Potnis, research manager, IDC, said: "What makes Veritas unique is their ability to bring a new level of intelligence to storing and managing large quantities of data.

"Using such intelligence is critical to effectively extracting value from the ever-growing volume of data in a cost-effective manner. An appliance form factor option for Veritas Access will also address the needs of customers who prefer simplicity in procurement, deployment and support."
