Veritas Achieves AWS Outposts Service Ready Designation with NetBackup™ Solutions

Empowers Customers with Holistic Data Protection for Enterprise Workloads at the Edge, in the Cloud and in the Core

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – September 15, 2020 –  Veritas Technologies, a global leader in data protection and availability, today announced it has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation – a core piece of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This status recognizes Veritas NetBackup, a unified data protection solution from edge to core to cloud, as successfully demonstrating integration with AWS Outposts deployments. As a fully managed service intended to bring customers a consistent hybrid experience, AWS Outposts allows organizations to further the AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs and tools to any data center, co-location space, or on-premises environment.

Veritas was recently named a Leader, for the 15th time, in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions . As the core of the company’s Enterprise Data Services Platform, NetBackup unifies data protection and helps customers significantly reduce risk, optimize costs, and strengthen ransomware resiliency across their hybrid and cloud environments at scale.

“Customers are looking for ways to monitor and easily recover protected resources across their digital estate as part of a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy,” said Joshua Burgin, General Manager, AWS Outposts, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With Veritas NetBackup available to customers on AWS Outposts, customers can benefit from comprehensive logging and backup services designed to reliably protect their data on their infrastructure, on AWS Outposts, or in AWS Regions, for a truly consistent hybrid experience.”

To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS Outposts ready solutions, AWS established the AWS Outposts Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS Outposts and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Outposts deployments.

“The digital transformation is accelerating to support a highly distributed remote workforce at scale, and IT resiliency and efficiency are now more critical than ever. NetBackup offers a complete Enterprise Data Services Platform to ensure data is protected and recoverable whether it is on premises or in the cloud,” said Deepak Mohan, executive vice president, Products Organization at Veritas. “By capitalizing on the agility and innovation of AWS, NetBackup can extend the consistent hybrid experience of AWS Outposts from infrastructure and services to data protection. We’re proud to expand our ongoing relationship with AWS through this new AWS Service Ready status.”
