Veritas has been the market leader in Data Protection for many years, and has become very popular with Service Providers as it not only covers virtual environments, but also legacy physical systems. It thus provides a perfect stepping stone to move towards cloud, or hybrid cloud, infrastructure. It is possible to continue to use the same enterprise quality features and take advantage of the reliability and performance that Veritas has continued to deliver over the years.
In this white paper, I have taken my Service Provider experience, and looked at NetBackup from a Service Provider’s perspective on how to deliver Backup as a Service (BaaS) using NetBackup technology. The White Paper is also slightly forward thinking, and provides some insights into what is coming from Veritas in the near future as we concentrate on this important sector of the IT industry. It is, and will continue to be, a living document with new updates as we integrate our product sets more closely, and deliver new functionality. You will understand why, as a major influencer in a global Services Organisation, I pushed for the company to use NetBackup as its global standard for Data Protection.
