Beyond hyper-converged: information-defined microservices.
The enterprise proven technology in Veritas NetBackup and NetBackup CloudCatalyst are now available in the Veritas Flex Appliance. Using a new, Information-defined microservices technology, The Flex Appliance consolidates multiple data protection and management deployments on a single, resilient, scalable and integrated appliance.
Rather than relying on numerous, complex silos of costly converged or single-function servers and storage devices, the Veritas Flex Appliance and its Information-defined microservices delivers on-demand, enterprise-wide backup and recovery, long-term retention and cloud tiering in a single, highly available and scalable solution.
- Simplifies infrastructure and reduces costs with multiple NetBackup domains in a single Flex Appliance
- Delivers enterprise-wide, on-premise and cloud data protection with minimal hardware footprint
- Information-defined microservices adapts with DevOps-like agility to the changing needs of the business
Keep pace with changing requirements, optimize TCO

Delivering data protection services with DevOps-like agility
The microservices architecture of the Veritas Flex Appliance delivers backup and recovery, long-term retention and cloud tiering applications as a collection of loosely coupled services. The architecture enables the dynamic, on-demand delivery and deployment of enterprise data protection applications. The Flex Appliance provides a platform for Veritas to develop and advance new microservices-based applications, enabling an organization to easily evolve and exploit new services.
- Condense complex infrastructure and reduces costs
- Accelerate and simplify enterprise-wide data protection services
- Enable rapid advances with DevOps-like agility for data services
Seamless integration with the Veritas Access LTR Appliance and public cloud services
Whether your business requires on-premise, public cloud or a hybrid approach to long-term retention, the Flex Appliance NetBackup CloudCatalyst microservice makes it easy to create an end-to-end data protection solution. NetBackup CloudCatalyst microservices provide the capability to cost effectively retain and protect your data on-premise in the Veritas Access Appliance, Veritas Cognitive Object Storage and/or multiple public clouds-including Amazon, Microsoft, Google and more.
- Easily orchestrate moving data to on-premise storage and/or multiple clouds for long-term retention
- Intelligent data reduction services increase effective capacities and reduce the time, cost and network bandwidth required for data to the cloud
- Seamlessly scale NetBackup CloudCatalyst microservices to meet the changing demands of the business
The scalability and resilience of the cloud, on-premise
Operational availability is a major factor when it comes to data protection services. The microservices architecture of the Flex Appliance redefines resiliency. Its microservices are containerized - completely isolated from inter-services interference and completely segregating data and network connectivity. A highly resilient Flex Appliance solution provides enterprise reliability across multiple data protection domains, meeting the requirements of the most stringent service level agreements.
- Containerized isolation prevents a microservices failure from impacting other applications
- Software-defined elasticity allows the microservice to be independently versioned, deployed, and scaled
- Microservices are resilient, automatically failing over to a high availability partner
