The Veritas Flex Appliance is a new concept in delivering enterprise data protection services. It utilizes a modern, containerized architecture to deliver a range of on-demand services including data protection and tiering to public and private clouds. Flex simplifies IT by replacing multiple, dedicated departmental servers with a single, microservices based data protection appliance.
With Flex, multiple NetBackup and NetBackup CloudCatalyst microservices are configured and deployed in less than 5 minutes, and on-demand. And, Multiple NetBackup deployments (domains) can be consolidated on a single Flex appliance substantially reducing data center cost and complexity.
The Flex Appliance represents a paradigm shift in high availability and SW updates. It’s not only a fully redundant hardware appliance, it’s also H/A in its and containers/services. With Flex, new versions of services are deployed in independent containers making SW patches and updates a thing of the past.
