Veritas unveils new tech to solve multi-cloud challenges

08 Jun 17

Veritas Technologies recently announced a range of new multi-cloud data management solutions. The solutions aim to provide businesses with a new level of visibility into cloud-based data, bi-directional cloud migration for critical workloads and snapshot-based data protection for multi-cloud environments.

These latest additions build on Veritas’ recent partnership announcements with a variety of public cloud providers including Google, IBM and Microsoft.

"Customers want the same level of data visibility and protection in a multi-cloud world as they have on-premises," comments Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer, Veritas.

"They also want to be able to migrate workloads to multiple clouds simply, without being locked in. Today, we are delivering on all of that through these technology innovations. And we are excited to continue to develop technologies that build on our relationships with Google, IBM, Microsoft and other cloud providers."

Veritas says that today, organizations looking to fast track cloud adoption in the multi-cloud world face compounding challenges.

These challenges include a lack of data visibility, complicated migration paths that also frequently result in cloud lock-in, and a mistaken perception that because data is in the cloud, it does not need to be protected, according to Veritas.

"Migrating workloads to multiple cloud environments without the right management tools can be a bit of a challenge for organizations," said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC.

"With these new solutions, Veritas aims to help ensure customers have improved visibility, migration and protection of critical data with no cloud vendor lock-in, whether it is a private cloud, public cloud or local clouds."

The new multi-cloud data management solutions and features include:

  • Visualize cloud-based data with Veritas Information Map and new S3 Connector: The Information Map S3 Connector, the first of a new wave of cloud connectors, provides customers with a real-time picture and interactive view of their unstructured data assets residing in S3-enabled cloud storage repositories.
  • Migrate workloads to the cloud with Veritas CloudMobility: Engineered for the multi-cloud, CloudMobility allows organizations to safely and securely migrate complex workloads from their data center to the cloud with a single click.
  • Protect cloud-based workloads with Veritas CloudPoint: CloudPoint helps customers leverage snapshot-based data protection to solve aggressive data recovery objectives and institute consistent data protection policies, regardless of the cloud environments that the workloads are deployed on.
