Veritas introduces new capabilities to its Enterprise Data Services Platform

Technologies has introduced new innovations to its Enterprise Data Services Platform (EDSP) to help customers reduce risk, optimize cost, strengthen ransomware resiliency, and manage multi-cloud environments at scale. With the launch of NetBackup 8.3, Veritas further empowers enterprise customers by improving the resiliency of their applications and infrastructure regardless of the context. By extending the core of EDSP— NetBackup—to include the Veritas Resiliency Platform (VRP) and CloudPoint, Veritas delivers a single platform with enterprise resiliency features and functionality to protect and recover data wherever it resides.

NetBackup software’s latest innovations bring many new benefits to enterprise customers, including:
• Strengthened ransomware resiliency with security, protection, and recovery improvements
o Security and protection improvements
 Expanded ransomware protection with hardened NetBackup appliances and vendor-agnostic                      immutability for storage utilizing NetBackup OpenStorage Technology (OST)
 Seamless, secure infrastructure supporting 2048-bit encryption and integration with third-party                  key management systems (EKMS) giving customers choice
 Role-based access control (RBAC) enhancements that provide greater flexibility and simplify role               management

o Recovery improvements
 Added resiliency through the granular recovery of virtual machines with near-zero Recovery Point                   Objective (RPO) and efficient Recovery Time Objective (RTO) thanks to Continuous Data                             Protection (CDP)
 Orchestrated rehearsals with zero production impact to verify the efficiency and effectiveness of                 recovery procedures

• Cloud-native data protection for all leading platforms
o Robust cloud-native protection for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud        with full Veritas CloudPoint integration
o Expanded cloud-to-anywhere—including Azure Stack to Azure Stack and Azure region-to-region—             with push-button orchestrated disaster recovery using full Veritas Resiliency Platform integration
o Seamless workload and data portability in hybrid and multi-cloud, with both to-the-cloud and                     between-cloud storage tiers

• Expanded and a simplified single platform for resiliency across your environment
o Elimination of siloed management tools with the expansion of EDSP to now include cloud                            protection,  workload migration and disaster recovery across on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud            environments
o Maximized storage efficiency, reduced bandwidth requirements, and consolidated infrastructure                 costs with direct-to-cloud tiering, enabling management of data in multiple buckets, storage tiers,             and cloud environments from a single node with NetBackup CloudCatalyst
o Storage cost optimization with integrated management and reporting, including expanded coverage          for workloads, policy and storage management, and enhanced infrastructure visibility from Veritas            APTARE IT Analytics

• Enhanced workload support featuring substantial performance improvements and increased operational simplicity
o 50x faster discovery for VMware vCenter and vCloud, reducing discovery time from hours to minutes        for large environments
o 25% faster dynamic NAS data protection via auto-discovery of resources and load balancing with the        ability to restore data anywhere on any NetBackup target, removing vendor lock-in
o Total control of discovery, backup, restore, and automation at scale for Microsoft SQL, Oracle, and            Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) to simplify management
