Veritas announces support for Google Cloud

24 Mar 16

Veritas Technologies has announced support for the Google Cloud Platform with its information management solutions.

The announcement follows news the company launched a dedicated cloud data centre in Australia earlier this week.

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.

Ben Gibson, Veritas CMO, says the support allows Veritas to deliver needed visibility and control for hybrid cloud environments.

"Our hybrid cloud research shows that 31% of organisations are already looking to the cloud for their backup and recovery workload, and that percentage will grow even more in the future," Gibson explains.

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

Over the last decade, Veritas has been recognised as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for both Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances.

Veritas says its 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.

NetBackup monitors and manages data protection both on-premises and to private and public clouds, and lifecycle management capabilities manage when and how information is moved from online disk to Google Cloud Storage.

Targeted at mid-sized organisations, Veritas Backup Exec 15 is designed to deliver flexible backup and recovery for the entire IT infrastructure regardless of platform: virtual, physical and cloud.
