Veritas and AWS technology alliance
Last week, Veritas and AWS announced that they formed a technology alliance to bring the capabilities of Veritas 360 Data Management to AWS users. This did not surprise us as we know and understand both companies’ technologies and already recognised the potential that the combination presents. Possibilities include:
Orchestrated failover and failback to and from AWS
Combining AWS with Veritas Resiliency Platform (VRP) enables fully automated recovery of virtualized infrastructures to AWS. Standby datacenters can be consolidated to the cloud, saving money. Migration can be tested and easily rolled back, saving time.
Legacy applications without refactoring
Enterprise applications like SAP and Oracle have their own specific mechanisms to ensure performance, resiliency and scalability, and would need refactoring to adapt to the near infinite scalibility that AWS offers. Veritas InfoScale for AWS is the viable alternative to refactoring, simplifying the customer experience through a unified management console.
Cloud tiering software defined storage
Veritas Access and Amazon S3 combine to provide a low-cost storage tier for unstructured data workloads already. Later this year, Access will be available as a full featured cloud solution to enhance application performance while minimizing cost.
Unified data protection provided by Veritas NetBackup ensures a simple and reliable experience, no matter where your data resides or which platform is used.
