Veritas Backup Exec and HPE: Greater than the sum of our parts

Both Veritas and HPE share the common goal of simplifying IT. Our ongoing partnership delivers on this goal through rigorous interoperability testing, seamless product integration, and customized offers for our customers.

Today we are proud to announce a multi-year global, strategic partnership and promotional offer for HPE customers to help provide the best data management solution.

New promotional offer for HPE customers
Building on the long standing relationship between Veritas and HPE, this partnership enables HPE customers to purchase Backup Exec (BE) at 50% off MSRP1 to effectively manage their hybrid infrastructures by leveraging industry-leading data management capabilities of BE.

With this promotion offer, HPE customers can purchased BE at 50% off MSRP anywhere in the world through our channel partner. HPE is announcing this promotion to its customers by distributing a BE promotional flyer that will go into its standalone drives and MSL libraries.

As a result, HPE customers can experience a true unified data protection for their on-premise and cloud-based environments, protecting critical data wherever it resides, all while accelerating their digital transformation.

I encourage HPE customers to make the most of this promotional opportunity to save on Backup Exec with the purchase of HPE StoreEver Tape Drives and Libraries.

Working with a trusted partner like HPE makes life simpler for organizations. HPE’s close partnership with Veritas gives HPE customers easy access to market-leading Veritas products like BE at reduced costs. BE is already certified for use with HPE storage devices including HPE StoreEver, StoreOnce, StoreOnce VSA, HPE RDX, Ultrium, StoreEver, and others.

Growing strategic partnerships is as much of a key part of Backup Exec’s strategy for growth as it is for Veritas,” said Simon Jelley, General Manager, BE. “This partnership will provide customers of Veritas and HPE flexibility and control over their hybrid infrastructures and enable them to take full advantage of our industry-leading data protection capabilities.”

This partnership is meaningful to our HPE customers and also for our own long-term strategy. The combination of BE and HPE delivers reliable and trusted data protection, enhanced data recovery, and complete lifecycle data management to improve operational efficiencies. Additionally, partners have the benefit of being able to sell HPE storage along with Backup Exec software as a complete solution, with the complete confidence of knowing the hardware and software work together.
