Veritas Technologies and Pure Storage have announced a collaboration to help customers to consolidate data on all-flash storage.

The collaboration will integrate Veritas' NetBackup with the Pure Storage data hub architecture, to protect data running on the Pure Storage architecture and enable customers to utilize date more efficiently.

The new collaboration builds on a relationship between Veritas and Pure Storage that includes joint adoption of one another's technology, product enhancements, sales and support.

Built on FlashBlade, Pure's data hub centralizes data repositories to combine streaming analytics, backup, data lakes and artificial intelligence (AI) clusters to drive insight. Veritas NetBackup can protect an entire data hub architecture running on FlashBlade, and can also leverage FlashBlade as a backup target, resulting in rapid restores when necessary.

In addition, Veritas NetBackup, in conjunction with Veritas CloudPoint, has been integrated with Pure Storage FlashArray, enabling integrated snapshot management via the NetBackup console. The consolidation of the technologies between the two companies enables AI and machine learning to be performed on larger, more diverse data sets-yielding greater business intelligence that can lead to faster innovation.

"Modern enterprises need to derive value from all data, regardless of where it's stored. A data hub architecture unifies data siloes, which makes it easier to extract value from the massive data sets that drive AI, big data and IoT," said Katie Colbert, vice president, Alliances, Pure Storage. "By partnering with Veritas, Pure Storage customers will enjoy the benefits of NetBackup to protect their valuable data and manage their entire infrastructure through a single unified solution."

"Today's massive data growth fuels enterprise risk as data stores become siloed, increasing the attack surface for malicious actors to exploit. In addition, data silos add complexity and cost to protecting and extracting real insights from enterprises' most valuable digital currency currency-their data," said Jyothi Swaroop, vice president, Global Solutions and Strategy, Veritas. "The combination of NetBackup and Pure Storage provides critical data protection, but with ultra-fast backup to allow businesses to stay a step ahead of customer expectations and needs, versus merely reacting to them."
