Veritas Partners With Pure Storage
Today Veritas Technologies and Pure Storage announced a joint effort to help customers protect and maximize the value of their data. Veritas Technologies has primarily focused on providing enterprise data protection. Pure Storage offers all flash storage platforms. The two companies have jointly adopted one another’s technology, product enhancements, sales, and support.The consolidation of the technologies between the two companies enables AI and machine learning to be performed on larger, more diverse data sets than either company could support alone —yielding greater business intelligence that can lead to faster innovation.
Built on FlashBlade, Pure’s data hub centralizes data repositories to combine streaming analytics, backup, data lakes, and artificial intelligence (AI) clusters. Veritas claims their NetBackup can protect the entire data hub architecture and still use the FlashBlade server as a backup target. We covered NetBackup in more detail just this past August. Not only NetBackup, but also Veritas' CloudPoint service have been integrated with PureStorage's FlashArray to provide integrated snapshot management via the NetBackup console. With Veritas NetBackup and CloudPoint integration, organizations can achieve more aggressive Recovery Time Objectives (RTO), and realize high-performance data protection for their data in flash arrays. This allows customers to meet stringent RTO and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) mandates in financial, health care, and other verticals where data recovery and resilience are required.
Additional benefits of the partnership include:
- Improved data recovery with consistent, more reliable point-in-time copies with Veritas NetBackup and Veritas CloudPoint integration with Pure Storage.
- Faster backup at peak performance with Veritas NetBackup and Veritas CloudPoint integration without lengthy snapshot windows and application time-outs.
