Platform-independent, highly scalable NAS information access

Unstructured data is experiencing phenomenal growth due to the proliferation of computing devices and operating systems, IoT, and other applications that fuel the rising tide of "big data." This massive, unrelenting growth is causing challenges for IT in addressing storage needs for both transactional and analytic workloads with very different performance and capacity requirements. Veritas Access enables your organisation to offer easily managed data access regardless of where it resides — on-premises, off-premises or in the cloud, with resulting application performance, cost-effectiveness and scalability gains.


Turn your unstructured data into a performance advantage

Boost performance for legacy and new age applications

  • Get an ideal storage solution for serving multiple different unstructured data use cases, mixed I/O workloads and billions of files with differing attributes
  • Simultaneously access files and objects over multiple protocols, including NFS, CIFS, FTP, SMB and S3
  • Access different environments and applications through diverse infrastructure support, DAS, SSDs, SAN or S3-based cloud storage

Save money by intelligently moving files to lower-cost disks/cloud

Increase efficiency and lower storage costs

  • Automatically move files based on usage patterns
  • Prune files that are older and not needed
  • Store less-used files on low-cost disks/cloud

Seamlessly move data to and from the cloud

Interface with private and public cloud platforms

  • Integrate with OpenStack Cinder and Manila (NFS V3, V4)
  • Support VMware
  • Support Amazon Web Services S3 and GLACIER

New in Veritas Access 7.2

Veritas Access 7.2 is a software-only, scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) solution for unstructured data that can be installed on any x86 commodity server and can provide access to storage via multiple network protocols for on-premises and cloud ecosystems.

  • Easily integrate with Amazon Web Services
  • Use cloud as a storage tier
  • Integrate seamlessly with NetBackup
  • Provide user integration

Boost application performance and manage costs

Veritas Access enables high-performance, cost-optimised, software-defined storage for unstructured data workloads. For on-premises workloads, use Veritas Access to provide AWS S3 storage as a low-cost storage tier, meeting performance requirements for unstructured data workloads and optimising the policy-driven migration of that data to AWS.

  • Leverage AWS cloud storage tiering with S3 support
  • Meet workload performance requirements
  • Move data to AWS based on policy

Provide telecoms-grade performance for all your applications

Veritas Access is the ideal storage solution for serving large numbers of small files with low latency, meeting telecoms workload performance requirements.

  • Get performance that meets unstructured data needs
  • Ensure high availability
  • Use a single storage solution for new and legacy applications
  • Optimise costs with hot and cool storage support

Unleash media streaming performance

Veritas Access provides a unique software-defined storage solution to address the performance and capacity requirements for media streaming workflows.

  • Practice workload-based tuning
  • Get multi-protocol file and object access
  • Use policy-driven storage management

Achieve cost-effective, long-term data retention

The integration of NetBackup and Veritas Access allows you to backup Access NAS file systems and also select Access shares as back-end target storage to leverage cost-effective, long-term data retention.

  • Ensure long-term data retention
  • Get a resilient, cost-effective solution that is scalable and elastic
  • Eliminate the need for time consuming tape management
