The Veritas™ Access 3340 Appliance is a turnkey deployment of Veritas’ software-defined Access scale-out network attached storage—a storage solution optimized for unstructured data use cases. The Access Appliance is cost-optimized and tuned for high-capacity workloads like long-term retention (LTR), tape replacement and backup archiving.

The appliance supports multiple protocols, including Amazon S3, CIFS, NFS, SMB for file and object access, and iSCSI target support for block storage.  It also supports policy-based tiering that orchestrates data migration to on- and off-premises clouds.

The Access 3340 is deeply integrated with Veritas NetBackup and NetBackup CloudCatalyst, providing a turnkey, cost-optimized LTR solution for large-scale (PB) deployments where Veritas NetBackup is the primary backup utility.  Integration with CloudCatalyst deduping capability reduces storage and media transfer costs.
