Veritas NetBackup Same-Day Support for VMware vSphere 6 Demonstrates A New, Agile Business


I am very pleased to announce that both NetBackup and Backup Exec are VMware vSphere 6 Ready on their first dates of general availability. Interested customers can read more about the April release of Backup Exec 15 here (, more about the just-released NetBackup here, and may plan rollouts knowing they have a backup solution in place for cutting edge virtual environments. We will continue to enhance our vSphere 6 capabilities in NetBackup 7.7 later this year.

Over the past year we’ve talked a lot about the importance of agility in driving business success, and how the Information Management solutions we provide can help IT accelerate business value.  What we haven’t talked as much about is the agile transformation we have undertaken within our own business.   A year ago, we began transitioning our engineering processes to an Agile development model.  Business process transformations are never easy, but as this announcement shows, our investments are paying off as we deliver support of new workloads well within our 90-day commitment.  We are excited to continue on our transformation journey to accelerate capabilities to market and offer even more business value to you as the new Veritas.

We understand that our backup and recovery solutions enable you to provide increased information access, business agility, and risk management as you enable your business to keep ahead of market demands.   Our team is committed to helping you move faster and take bigger risks knowing your information will be safe. The more agile we are, the more agile you can be. Are you ready to deploy vSphere 6? Go ahead – we’re ready when you are.
