New solutions simplify migration of enterprise applications and data; deployment of data protection in the cloud
Las Vegas, NV – November 29, 2016 – Veritas Technologies, the leader in information management, today announced at AWS re:Invent new capabilities for InfoScale and NetBackup designed to optimize enterprise application migration and simplify data protection deployment within Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments. Veritas InfoScale delivers software-defined storage for the cloud and helps ensure application performance, scale and resiliency requirements are met. Additionally, protecting these applications and other cloud-based workloads has now been made even easier with the new Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for NetBackup. These latest capabilities join a host of existing Veritas cloud data management solutions that support a variety of AWS use cases, from data governance and protection to migration and disaster recovery.
As organizations look to shift from upfront capex investments to pay-as-you-go opex models, many are prioritizing AWS resources to replace costly on-premises infrastructure. In fact, according to Veritas research, 53 percent of mission-critical applications will be in the public cloud this year. This accelerating shift shows that before refreshing on-premises hardware, organizations are looking first to the cloud. However, one major roadblock to simply “lifting and shifting” applications like Oracle, SAP, and other resource intensive workloads is the performance and resiliency tradeoffs. While IT has the option of refactoring these applications to work natively in the cloud, doing so can be both a massive time commitment and an expensive undertaking.
Veritas InfoScale enables the speed and cost-effectiveness of lifting and shifting to AWS while helping ensure the performance, scalability and resiliency of those enterprise applications. The new NetBackup AMI simplifies data protection deployment—both in and out of the cloud—as part of the NetBackup platform’s single pane of glass experience and comprehensive solution to protect all physical, virtual and cloud-based workloads.
Today’s announcement serves as an important proof point of Veritas’ strategy to deliver cloud data management solutions that address all major areas of cloud transformation:
“Our customers are leveraging Veritas solutions to integrate Amazon S3 into their data lifecycle management strategy,” said Mike Palmer, executive vice president, chief product officer at Veritas. “Interest in moving tier-one enterprise applications such as Oracle and SAP to the cloud is growing. Veritas is leading the efforts to enable these organizations have a seamless, scalable and cost-effective solution to access, share and leverage cloud storage without having to sacrifice performance or resiliency.”
“As more organizations increasingly turn to various types of clouds to run some or all of their mission-critical applications, the ability to migrate and manage data between and across platforms—not just at all, but simply—becomes vital,” said Mark Peters, Practice Director & Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “By creating solutions for these hybrid cloud environments, and specifically building-in support for AWS, Veritas is providing customers with an efficient way to both manage their data and also to gain seamless access to the world’s largest public cloud provider.”
