Veritas Technologies has announced a technology alliance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver Veritas 360 Data Management capabilities to enterprises leveraging AWS infrastructure.
The collaboration between the two companies further supports the commitment from Veritas to enable data management capabilities across hybrid architectures for customers, and to help enterprise IT organisations successfully navigate their journey to the cloud. As customers continue adopting cloud into their architectures, Veritas, through its software-driven approach, helps enterprises to integrate and move data and applications environments at their desired pace while protecting legacy hardware and software investments, retaining visibility and governance over data, and future choice over infrastructure.
“Our customers are consistently looking for ways to run their existing on-premises services across their AWS deployments,” said Bill Vass, Vice President, Storage Services, AWS. “Many enterprises today rely on Veritas technologies for application resiliency, performance, and disaster recovery. These customers will now have even greater opportunities to reduce costs and increase productivity while accelerating their journey to the cloud.”
Today, organisations are on a fast-track to embrace cloud infrastructure as digital transformations accelerate at an unprecedented pace, while the focus on cost management has never been greater. “Growth of public cloud is supported by the fact that organisations are saving 14 per cent of their budgets as an outcome of public cloud adoption,” according to Gartner’s 2015 cloud adoption survey.
“Veritas 360 Data Management for the cloud gives customers powerful, simple and highly cost effective ways to quickly drive greater business value from the cloud,” said Mike Palmer, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, Veritas. “Enterprises leveraging Veritas on AWS as a part of their hybrid IT strategy can utilise data management capabilities to help boost application performance, maintain business continuity with improved resiliency, and optimise their investment in AWS infrastructure.”
“This announcement accelerates the cloud initiative for our mutual customers who today are using NetBackup, InfoScale and other Veritas technology, and at the same time are also deploying on AWS,” said David Cintron, vice president of Managed Services at dcVAST, a Veritas channel partner and customer – and AWS Partner Network consulting partner. “The new alliance with Veritas and AWS allows channel partners like us to broaden our conversation with customers to help them optimise application performance, enhance disaster recovery and seamlessly move their data to the cloud.”
