Veritas Technologies, the market share leader in enterprise data protection, announced the Enterprise Data Services Platform, a unified set of technologies designed to abstract the complexity of enterprise IT.
The platform, which is powered by Veritas NetBackup 8.2, allows customers to get what matters to them most, simply: highly available apps, always protected and recoverable data, and insights that drive operational efficiency and regulatory compliance.
"Infrastructure complexity is damaging IT's ability to meet the demands of today's always-on enterprise," said Greg Hughes, chief executive officer, Veritas. "Our new Enterprise Data Services Platform, powered by NetBackup 8.2, allows enterprises to gain control of their data to help them manage its growth, reduce the impact of ransomware, and prove compliance for on-premises and cloud environments."
Starting with PROTECTION: The evolution of backup
While many enterprises believe most of their data should be backed up, the reality is very different. According to the recent Value of Data study conducted by Vanson Bourne for Veritas, 52 percent of business data is "dark data" and unmanaged by policy. Why? Most often, it is because enterprises do not know what data exists in their organization or where it lives. NetBackup 8.2 helps enterprises address this by supporting more than 500 data sources and over 150 storage targets, including 60 cloud providers. It can be deployed in any form factor, making it the most versatile and extensible approach to data management available on the market today.

"Telefónica is a long-time user of NetBackup. We use it to protect data across our business and to meet regulation compliance," said Ajit Sharma, Business Optimisation IT Director at Telefónica UK. "We're excited by how the new Veritas Enterprise Data Services Platform builds on the capabilities of NetBackup giving us the ability to standardize and simplify how we manage our data."
Layering on AVAILABILITY: Automation, orchestration, and performance matter
The right technology for 24/7 business should provide complete infrastructure abstraction. It should support any OS, application, hypervisor, cloud and storage; provide automation and orchestration of data recovery and testing; and give businesses the ability to monitor applications for availability and peak performance. This is what Veritas InfoScale TM provides and why enterprises trust it.

Generating INSIGHTS: Achieving regulatory readiness
The recent Value of Data study concluded that 83 percent of respondents felt data silos were negatively impacting their organization's ability to prove regulatory compliance. To solve this problem, Veritas is introducing a new unified information intelligence tool — Veritas Information Studio — that provides clear visibility, targeted analysis, and informed action on data.
What's new in Information Studio?
Information Studio is the newest addition to Veritas' Insights portfolio, which also features APTARE, the industry's leading IT analytics solution for managing data for storage and backup systems for hybrid cloud environments.
"Exponential data growth, prominent data threats like ransomware, and a highly volatile and ever-changing data regulatory environment are not new challenges for businesses to deal with, but complexity stymies IT's ability to solve these challenges and better empower the business," said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC. "Abstracting this complexity, while improving application availability, is what IT organizations need and what Veritas is addressing."
