Veritas strengthens AWS partnership with new competencies

08 Feb 2019

Data protection company Veritas has announced that its flagship products, 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.

For organisations of all sizes using the cloud or considering a move to the cloud, Veritas’ backup and recovery solutions can make data management and protection to, from, and within AWS easier.

This also extends Veritas’ commitment to accelerate cloud adoption for organisations globally.

Veritas product management and alliances vice president and general manager David Noy says, “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.”

Veritas achieved APN Advanced Technology Partner status in 2017 to develop solutions that support customers in accelerating their cloud and data management initiatives.

Since then, organisations have been able to leverage Veritas solutions and AWS infrastructure to help them accelerate migration to the cloud while improving the management of applications and data across hybrid cloud environments.

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.

“We are moving to an entirely cloud-based AWS environment to lower costs and reduce the staff time required to support data and applications,” says Veolia storage and backup engineer Aurélien Durand.

“Using Veritas NetBackup with Amazon S3 allows us to do this while protecting all of our most critical data. Losing accounting or financial data would have a major impact on our business.”

Modernise long-term retention with Veritas’ integration solution

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.
