About the Veritas Access Appliance

Veritas Access 3340 nodes and Primary Storage Shelf

Veritas Access is a software-defined Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution for unstructured data. Veritas Access appliances provide a simplified and high-performing solution for deploying an Access cluster in your data center. The goal is to provide a solution that eliminates the complexities that are traditionally associated with physical server deployments.

The appliances are rack-mounted servers that run the Veritas Optimized Operating System, a Linux-based operating system. The OS, the appliance software, and the Access application come preinstalled and optimized for the server hardware and disk storage units.

The following Access appliances are available:

  • Veritas Access 3340 Appliance

    For a full description of the appliance hardware, refer to the Veritas Access 3340 Appliance Product Description
