About Veritas Resiliency Platform

Veritas Resiliency Platform offers a unified solution that helps you proactively maintain business uptime across private, public, and hybrid clouds. Resiliency Platform gives you complete automation for all resiliency operations involving the virtual machines, applications, and multi-tier business-services in your data center. It safeguards the current technology investments by plugging into your existing environments and infrastructure.

For data replication, you can use the Resiliency Platform Data Mover or any third-party solution that is supported by Veritas Resiliency Platform. For a list of supported vendors and products, see Veritas Resiliency Platform Hardware and Software Compatibility Guide.

Resiliency Platform Data Mover is a separately licensed feature of Veritas Resiliency Platform. It provides data replication between geographically separated data centers facilitating an effective disaster recovery solution. The Resiliency Platform Data Mover can be used for the following purposes:

  • For recovery of VMware virtual machines to premises data center

  • For recovery of VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines to cloud data center

Resiliency Platform has the following core capabilities:

Security and Compliance

Veritas Resiliency Platform provides enhanced data encryption ( for data-in-flight and data-at-rest) as well as choice of data residency.

Predictability

Customers can predictably meet critical business Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).

Compliance

Customers can prove compliance to internal and external business continuity mandates with audit reporting and non-disruptive, real-time disaster recovery testing.

Automation

Customers get complete automation for all resiliency operations including recovery run books, and start and stop recovery orchestration for multi-tier applications. This reduces risk of downtime from human error.

Flexibility

Customers get the flexibility to keep their existing infrastructures and can innovate on their terms, with the flexibility that Resiliency Platform provides, to enable workload migration across sites and even to the cloud.
