The Veritas Flex Appliance: Data Protection On-Demand
A few weeks ago, I watched the PBS series Sherlock. I had seen a few episodes and I wanted to fill in the ones I missed. With a video streaming service, I watched the episodes I wanted to watch, when I wanted to watch them, in the order I wanted to watch them, on-demand.
The Veritas Flex Appliance, launched in March, is an entirely new concept in delivering data protection services. Data-protection environments can be created as easily as it was for me to tune-in the Sherlock series. Data-protection infrastructure can literally be created and deployed in minutes with a few clicks, on-demand.
With a streaming service I can access TV series, movies and documentaries from multiple networks, studios and even countries; they are all consolidated in one place. Consolidation simplifies how I choose what I watch and enhances my viewing experience.
The Flex Appliance provides the same benefits of consolidation. Multiple data protection environments can be consolidated on a single Flex Appliance, again in a few minutes with a few clicks. This saves time and money by reducing complexity and data-center foot print.
Data Protection Defined by Your Information
Today I can easily change when and what I watch as my needs change. I can change from my mystery series binging to travel shows when planning a vacation, or tune into documentaries to learn about current events. Not only that, but I have the ability to watch my shows at 2AM if my only free time is late at night. My lifestyle defines how I consume entertainment. In the past I had to fit my lifestyle to the TV network schedule.
With the Flex appliance, your data protection infrastructure is defined by your information. When information needs change, re-configure the infrastructure in minutes with a few clicks. No need to shoe-horn information into a fixed data protection configuration.
The Flex Appliance provides on-demand, information defined data protection. Consolidating multiple data protection deployments on a Flex appliance simplifies your data protection infrastructure and saves money.
The Flex Appliance may not make managing a data protection environment as easy as watching TV, but it’s getting close.
