Veritas Technologies Introduces a Transformed User Interface

Veritas Technologies, data protection leader, today unveiled Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 with a new and improved user interface that, simplifying access for employees across an organization.

With an intuitive interface that enables authorized employees to easily protect and monitor their own data, on premises or in multi-cloud environments, Veritas NetBackup simplifies day-to-day operations and empowers employees to play an important data management role in their department.

With the new modernized interface of NetBackup, all authorized users, including backup administrators, will now be able to securely access and manage the backup and recovery of their company data with just a few clicks.

“One trend that we’ve seen in the industry is that there’s a pressure to do more so making the admin backup experience simpler and easier to use is going to make their job better and they can do more of the other pressures that are being handed to them,” said Killian Evers, vice president of user experience.

Through integration with the “Veritas Smart Meter” web service, users can easily identify any issues, view a report of capacity usage and take action to keep their backup environments running smoothly.

The new NetBackup 8.1.2 unifies data protection for multi-cloud, virtual, physical, and next-generation workloads with proven, petabyte-scale performance, all managed from a single console.

Engineered to protect traditional IT workloads as well as big data analytics platforms, Open Source databases, and hyperconverged infrastructure, NetBackup is equipped to handle anything the modern data center can throw at it.

NetBackup 8.1.2 also offers increased functionality and enterprise-scale backup for VMware customers, as well as integration with other modern workloads.

NetBackup supports Hadoop, Nutanix, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, SQLite, HBase and MongoDB.

By simplifying data protection, Veritas can help customers reach a faster time to market and provide them the ability to adapt more quickly to changing market conditions.

Over the past year, Veritas design teams have collected feedback from thousands of customers and partners worldwide to understand how they use Veritas solutions during the entire product lifecycle.

The design teams have incorporated this feedback and streamlined the workflow of NetBackup to increase its usability and help customers reduce the complexity of all data backup and recovery tasks.

“We connect with our customers, our partners, and potential customers and we will leverage their voices to show work in progress and get feedback,” Evers said. “It’s incredibly positive and constructive.”

With NetBackup 8.1.2’s new automation options and integration with the snapshot-based data protection of CloudPoint 2.1, it’s easier and faster than ever before for organizations to manage large and complex data protection environments spanning across multiple clouds and on premises storage arrays.

As the company looks toward the future, Evers said the next steps will be to integrating more mobile and interactive experiences within the platform.
