Several days ago is was the summer solstice. Our strategic parter, Veritas, announced their Enterprise Data Services Platform offering solutions in the three areas that matter most: availability, protection, and insights. This is the most versatile and extensible platform available to enterprises and represents the perfect IT foundation. It’s built on NetBackup 8.2 and supports 500+ data sources, 150+ storage targets, and 60+ clouds.
NetBackup 8.2 added additional support for virtual infrastructure in the form of fully agent-less architecture for VMware as well as support for RedHat KVM and OpenStack. NetBackup is also #Docker certified for backup and recovery of containers. NetBackup 8.2 can back up to the cloud twice as fast as the previous version as well as automating disaster recovery. NetBackup 8.2 also adds support for third-party services like, VMware vRealize, AWS Glacier and AWS Deep Archive plugins.
Veritas is also recently released a new unified information intelligence tool, Veritas Information Studio. Information studio provides Connectors to 20+ cloud and on-premises data repositories, including NetBackup. The tool helps classifying and identifying personally identifiable information to assist with regulatory compliance as well as visually rendering metadata to help determine what exists, where it exists, and who has access.
