Multi-cloud data management company Vertitas Technologies has announced new solutions that would provide organizations enhanced visibility into cloud-based data, bi-directional cloud migration for critical workloads and snapshot-based data protection optimized for multi-cloud environments.
IDC estimates that 90 percent of enterprise organizations plan to utilize multi-cloud architectures over the next few years, driving up the rate and pace of multi-cloud adoption by IT organizations.
“Migrating workloads to multiple cloud environments without the right management tools can be a bit of a challenge for organizations,” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC. “With these new solutions, Veritas Technologies aims to help ensure customers have improved visibility, migration and protection of critical data with no cloud vendor lock-in, whether it is a private cloud, public cloud or local clouds.”
Multi-Cloud Data Management
The new Veritas offerings are part of the company’s wave of “next-generation” technology aimed at enabling successful multi-cloud strategies for organizations.
- Visualize cloud-based data with Veritas Information Map and new S3 Connector – The Information Map S3 Connector provides customers with a real-time picture and interactive view of their unstructured data assets residing in S3-enabled cloud storage repositories. Visibility would be a critical first step to making informed data retention, migration and deletion decisions. Data visibility also helps to ensure compliance with data regulations around the world, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which takes effect in May, 2018.
- Migrate workloads to the cloud with Veritas CloudMobility – Engineered for the multi-cloud, CloudMobility would allow organizations to safely and securely migrate complex workloads from their data center to the cloud with a single click. The automated solution would give organizations the flexibility to cost-effectively migrate workloads to the cloud of their choice. If business goals change, the workloads can migrate back to on-premises. CloudMobility would also provide pre-migration testing to enable a successful migration with the advance knowledge of how an application will perform in the cloud.
- Protect cloud-based workloads with Veritas CloudPoint –CloudPoint would help customers leverage snapshot-based data protection to solve aggressive data recovery objectives and institute consistent data protection policies, regardless of the cloud environments that the workloads are deployed on. This solution would help manage snapshot operations across multi-cloud and data center environments via a simple user interface, helping customers avoid vendor lock-in and data silos, while providing a consistent recovery experience. CloudPoint will support a host of public cloud environments including Google, IBM Cloud and Microsoft Azure, with general availability targeted for the coming quarters.
“Customers want the same level of data visibility and protection in a multi-cloud world as they have on-premises,” said Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer, Veritas. “They also want to be able to migrate workloads to multiple clouds simply, without being locked in. Today, we are delivering on all of that through these technology innovations. And we are excited to continue to develop technologies that build on our relationships with Google, IBM, Microsoft and other cloud providers.”
