Veritas 360 Data Management accelerates data migration to the cloud, boosts application performance for cloud workloads and orchestrates disaster recovery to AWS
Mountain View, CA – February 15, 2017 – Veritas Technologies today announced a technology alliance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver Veritas 360 Data Management capabilities to enterprises leveraging AWS infrastructure -- accelerating migration to the cloud and improving the management of applications and data across hybrid cloud environments.
The collaboration between the two companies further supports the commitment from Veritas to enable data management capabilities across hybrid architectures for customers, and to help enterprise IT organizations successfully navigate their journey to the cloud. As customers continue adopting cloud into their architectures, Veritas, through its software-driven approach, helps enterprises to integrate and move data and applications environments at their desired pace while protecting legacy hardware and software investments, retaining visibility and governance over data, and future choice over infrastructure.
“Our customers are consistently looking for ways to run their existing on-premises services across their AWS deployments,” said Bill Vass, Vice President, Storage Services, AWS. “Many enterprises today rely on Veritas technologies for application resiliency, performance, and disaster recovery. These customers will now have even greater opportunities to reduce costs and increase productivity while accelerating their journey to the cloud.”
Expediting migration to the cloud with strong business impact
The collaboration includes technology integrations between Veritas 360 Data Management solutions and AWS.
Today, organizations are on a fast-track to embrace cloud infrastructure as digital transformations accelerate at an unprecedented pace, while the focus on cost management has never been greater. "Growth of public cloud is supported by the fact that organizations are saving 14 percent of their budgets as an outcome of public cloud adoption,” according to Gartner's 2015 cloud adoption survey.*
“Veritas 360 Data Management for the cloud gives customers powerful, simple and highly cost effective ways to quickly drive greater business value from the cloud,” said Mike Palmer, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, Veritas. “Enterprises leveraging Veritas on AWS as a part of their hybrid IT strategy can utilize data management capabilities to help boost application performance, maintain business continuity with improved resiliency, and optimize their investment in AWS infrastructure.”
Customer and Partner Quotes
“The technology alliance between AWS and Veritas presents a promising opportunity for companies that want to achieve accelerated migration to the cloud and want to do so in a simple, scalable, reliable and cost effective manner,” said Bob Worrall, Chief Information Officer, Juniper Networks. “As a company that is both a customer of AWS and Veritas, and understands first-hand the advantages of moving certain operations to the cloud, Juniper is excited to consider alternatives provided through this alliance that deliver additional levels of business agility while maintaining performance and existing operational service level agreements.”
