Are you currently using the cloud as part of your IT strategy? With a wide variety of options and services available from several different public cloud services, you may be thinking about how to evolve your IT strategy to include more than one cloud provider. Using multiple cloud services to run your business technology has several interesting advantages, but it also introduces some challenges that aren’t easy to solve. This is why you need Veritas Alta Application Resiliency!
Veritas Alta Application Resiliency is a new solution based on Veritas InfoScale, designed for applications running in the cloud. Veritas Alta Application Resiliency provides high availability and optimization for mission-critical applications running in the cloud to minimize the risk of application downtime and data loss. It helps you keep your applications up and running all the time and gives you the flexibility to run your applications on nearly any cloud platform.
With Veritas Alta Application Resiliency, you can efficiently manage your business technology across multiple clouds in a flexible deployment architecture, with the availability and resiliency needed to eliminate service downtime. Veritas Alta Application Resiliency also gives you the flexibility to move your business technology between platforms – including public clouds – to optimize costs, service availability, resiliency, and innovation.
The public cloud market has evolved to include multiple different vendors that each offer a variety of new and innovative functionality, but not all clouds are created equal. Each provider has a somewhat different service catalog with different options and features. Multi-cloud is a conceptual IT deployment architecture that combines multiple cloud platforms – such as AWS, Azure and GCP – with other technology platforms and resources used to manage your business technology stack.
Implementing a multi-cloud IT strategy has several interesting benefits:
It’s also important to understand that there are several challenges that can be difficult to overcome when architecting and building multi-cloud environments:
Let’s look at how Veritas Alta Application Resiliency helps overcome these challenges and enables you to design and implement optimized multi-cloud environments.
Figure 1 shows an example of a multi-cloud architecture where Veritas Alta Application Resiliency helps eliminate complexity and provides the foundation for an optimized multi-cloud environment.
