Constant exchange of information at the Veritas booth, Microsoft Ignite 2016
When we ask organizations which solutions are in their top five most important to their success, Microsoft is often near the top of that list. Which is why many cutting-edge IT organizations will deploy the latest versions of Microsoft Server and Hyper-V to optimize their business performance and agility. With the introduction of Windows Server 2016 and Hyper-V 2016, a new generation of highly virtualized infrastructure will begin to take shape in combination with cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service. This is why Veritas is working alongside Microsoft and committed to being the first information management company to offer market-leading data protection for Server 2016 and Hyper-V 2016 on Day 1 upon its release targeted for mid-October 2016.
So what are we announcing?
Targeted Day 1 support for Windows Server 2016 and Hyper-V 2016. To enable customers to quickly deploy the latest Microsoft technologies and extend the value of their Microsoft investment, Veritas commits to being the first information management company to protect this new platform.
Back up to Azure cloud storage. Veritas NetBackup and Backup Exec will be able to write data directly to geography and storage tier-specific Azure targets. With direct write access to Azure targets, Veritas enables businesses to leverage the benefits of Microsoft’s cloud storage, such as elastic capacity and consumption pricing.
100x faster Hyper-V backup. NetBackup will have unique integration with the Resilient Change Tracking feature in Hyper-V 2016 which will allow NetBackup Accelerator to perform backups up to 100 times faster. This will make it easier to shrink backup windows and reduce storage requirements without requiring a burdensome and potentially destabilizing filter driver as required by other vendors.
At Veritas, we believe information is everything. Data is an organization’s digital currency; a critical business asset that is exponentially growing in value. Today, we are the only company that provides a data management platform to address the core challenge of accessing, managing and analyzing all of their data, no matter where it is, in real time- allowing organizations to truly maximize the value of their data. The agility proven by support of the latest Microsoft Server and Hyper-V operating environments, along with flexible Azure options, supports this business strategy.
