Veritas adds IM Solutions for Google Cloud

Veritas Technologies has announced support for Google Cloud Platform with its NetBackup 7.7 and Backup Exec 15 solutions. Organisations can use the Google public cloud as a backup destination, run back up and perform disaster recovery to or from the Google Cloud Platform.

 “Our Hybrid Cloud research shows that 31 percent of organisations are already looking to the cloud for their backup and recovery workload, and that percentage will grow even more in the future,” stated Ben Gibson, Veritas CMO.

“Integrating our market leading NetBackup and Backup Exec solutions with Google Cloud Platform gives organisations the ability to confidently and securely do this today.”

Veritas NetBackup 7.7 supports Google Cloud Storage Nearline with enterprise-grade capabilities. The combination enables use of cloud storage as an alternative to tape, when choosing long-term storage of backup data. It also allows backup of large volumes of data at a low cost, while providing access to it at anytime and anywhere.

Using the uNetBackup OpenStorage Technology (OST) layer, NetBackup easily monitors and manages data protection both on-premises and to private and public clouds. Regardless of location – disk, tape, or cloud - NetBackup lifecycle management capabilities manage when and how information is moved from online disk to Google Cloud Storage.

NetBackup v7.7 greatly enhances the performance and interoperability of backups directed to cloud storage services, such as Google Cloud Storage. One of the innovative capabilities of NetBackup, Auto Image Replication (AIR), provides a unique capability to extend disaster recovery to the cloud by efficiently replicating and managing catalogue and backup data from multiple locations to a secure cloud environment.
