Veritas Modernizes Back Up for On-Prem and Virtualized Workloads

Veritas Technologies, a provider of enterprise data protection solutions, has introduced Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 with an improved user interface that simplifies how employees can protect data and modern workloads.

The new Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 provides an intuitive interface that enables authorized employees to protect and monitor their own data, on premise or in multi-cloud environments, enabling employees to play an important data management role in their department.

“The explosion of data and the need to protect it, combined with new technologies, web-based workloads and mobile applications are reshaping customer expectations and fostering a new demand for consistent, yet personalized experiences,” said Jane Zhu, senior vice president of Data Protection and Governance Engineering, Veritas. “Our customer user experience is one of the critical priorities we’re focusing on today. Simplifying, standardizing and unifying the look and feel of our NetBackup user interface is the first step on this important journey.”

With the new modernized interface of Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2, 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 using their mobile device and save time in day-to-day operations. Through integration with the “Veritas Smart Meter” web service, users can identify issues, view a report of capacity usage, and take action to keep their backup environments running smoothly.

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

Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 also offers increased functionality and enterprise-scale backup for VMware customers, as well as integration with other modern workloads. This is enabled through instant access to their systems with the new interface and the ability to restore a single file without an agent. NetBackup supports Hadoop, Nutanix, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, SQLite, HBase, and MongoDB.

And, according to Veritas, with NetBackup 8.1.2’s new automation options and integration with the snapshot-based data protection of Veritas CloudPoint 2.1, organizations can more easily manage large and complex data protection environments spanning across multiple clouds and on premises storage arrays.
