Veritas announces global partnership with Google

09 Mar 2017

Veritas recently announced an expanded partnership with Google.

The information management company asserts the agreement will provide joint customers with 360 Data Management capabilities that reduce data storage costs, increase compliance and eDiscovery readiness and accelerate the customer’s journey to Google Cloud Platform.

The two companies are working together to not only combine sales and support activities, but also deploy solutions that enable organisations to extract new business value from their data.

Veritas today announced a new set of innovations with Google Cloud, including archiving and eDiscovery support for the newly launched G Suite Enterprise offering – an integration said to simplify how organisations can manage data retention and help businesses meet compliance regulations as they move to cloud-based email services. 

Veritas chief product officer, Mike Palmer says it all comes to what their customers want – innovation and choice.

“Customers want to see innovation in storage and infrastructure technologies, and they want choice of where to deploy applications and which services to deploy, including email,” Palmer says.

“But they also need enterprise-grade data management capabilities in place. That’s why customers are so excited by what Veritas is doing with Google." 

Some of the key product integrations between Veritas and Google Cloud will enable customers to:

  • Lower storage costs and enhance data protection in Google Cloud Platform
  • Move archive data to the cloud to lower costs, increase scalability and enhance security
  • Extend retention management and compliance readiness for G Suite Enterprise Gmail
  • Respond faster to regulatory requests
  • Test drive data management innovations in a multi-cloud, hybrid world

“Google Cloud is focused on bringing innovations in cloud storage, infrastructure and data and analytics to enterprises, and increasingly, customers are turning to Google to take advantage of these capabilities,” says Nan Boden, head of global technology partners, Google Cloud. “This extended relationship enables customers to migrate data to Google Cloud Platform while leveraging data management and information governance capabilities from Veritas."
