Veritas Technologies, a worldwide provider of enterprise data protection and software-defined storage, announced that its flagship product, Veritas NetBackup, is now available in the IBM Marketplace.

Veritas' backup and recovery solutions help organisations of all sizes manage and protect data wherever it lives in the hybrid cloud or on-premises.

Designed for the unique challenges of the enterprise, NetBackup supposedly makes it easy for organisations to migrate and protect their data throughout its cloud journey.

Through this collaboration, IBM extends the reach of NetBackup through referral sales or through managed Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solutions on the IBM Marketplace.

Veritas VP Barbara Spicek says, “Veritas is committed to accelerating cloud adoption for organisations of all sizes. To achieve that goal, we have made it easier to migrate data to, from and within the hybrid cloud.

“Our presence in the IBM Marketplace now offers market leading, mission-critical data storage and protection solutions for IBM and Veritas existing and new clients in all customer segments globally.

As data continues to grow and become more fragmented across clouds and virtual environments, a unified data protection strategy is often the only way the IT organisation can deliver required service levels while limiting cost and risk, regardless of where data lives.

Backup technology from Veritas, delivered with world-class managed services from IBM, supposedly provides organisations with the protection they need and enables organisations to reduce costs, minimise complexity and meet compliance requirements.

Spicek concludes, “Throughout our 10-year collaboration, Veritas and IBM have built data management and unified data protection solutions to help accelerate data transformation and migration, extend data protection to the cloud, and ensure availability for mission-critical applications for our customers.

Enterprise solutions from Veritas and IBM are supposedly designed to deliver a consistent set of powerful tools across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
