• Veritas gains AWS Storage Competency status

        • Veritas Technologies has announced that Veritas NetBackup and Veritas Backup Exec, have attained Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Competency status, reaffirming Veritas as an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Technology Partner offering solutions validated by the AWS Storage Competency. 

          Veritas NetBackup and Backup Exec now support multiple AWS storage classes, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon S3 Standard-Infrequent Access (Amazon S3 Standard-IA), and Amazon Glacier.

          David Noy, Vice President and General Manager, Product Management and Alliances, Veritas said, “today’s announcement expands on the relationship between AWS and Veritas as well as Veritas’ goal to provide organisations with robust cloud solutions to manage and secure data across the cloud and on-premises environments. Achieving AWS Storage Competency status helps us achieve our goal of helping enterprises implement long-term data retention strategies with one of the most reliable data protection experiences in the cloud.”

          With the integration of Veritas NetBackup and Backup Exec solutions, customers can protect data and ward against loss from physical or logical errors, such as system failure, application error, or accidental deletion when backing up, to or from AWS.

          Further advancing Veritas’ commitment to the cloud, Veritas has developed integrated solutions for long-term retention (LTR) available in the AWS Solution Space. These solutions enable businesses to modernise long-term data retention strategies, protect business application data and ensure business uptime. They include:

          • Modern data centre backup with Veritas and AWS – Veritas NetBackup and Cloud Catalyst solutions are designed to help organisations store copies of their backup data to AWS more easily, while maintaining data optimisation. This helps organisations address costs associated with storing large amounts of data in a cloud repository and can help increase data transfer performance.
          • AWS for LTR – Veritas NetBackup software and appliance solutions leverage AWS to make it a great choice for storing backup data to the cloud, especially for LTR.

          Veritas NetBackup and Veritas Backup Exec are currently available on AWS Marketplace. To learn more or get first-hand experience with moving and protecting data on AWS, visit Veritas’ microsite for AWS and take a Veritas NetBackup test drive here.
