Employee Accredited CPEP

[Editor’s note: This is part two of a 3 part series – Part one can be found here]


These days, consumers have seen a major shift in how they interact with various technologies.  Simple and easy to use designs have now become table stakes and it’s no different at the enterprise level. 

When you are the vendor to the #1 enterprise backup solution in the world, customers expect our products to be extremely INTUITIVE.

Veritas is building a modern user experience across our entire award winning portfolio and reigniting the same excitement felt when our products first hit the market.

NetBackup 8.1.2 is the first step in the new Veritas design strategy, led by Killian Evers, Vice President - CX, and it changes the way that our customers will interact with our solutions.  We’ve made NetBackup 8.1.2 intuitive so our users can make decisions much faster, can save time on mundane tasks, and so we can reduce redundancy across a number of jobs.

Visibility and control through a single screen

With NetBackup 8.1.2, we are introducing the idea of protection plans.  A way of simplifying administration of policies, when you need to delegate. Admins will have guided configurations of protection plans and all protection details on a single screen.  This allows them to focus on providing protection services to data owners while easily managing and meeting their service level objectives.  They will also find consistent navigation across the board so they can get what they need, when they need it.

There will also be easy, streamlined selection between snapshot or on-prem storage.  The straight-forward visibility of assets will enable workload admins to easily understand and manage asset protection.

NetBackup 8.1.2’s new simplified recovery process allows for self-service recovery of assets.  This means that there is no need to engage the backup admin for recovery operations or for knowledge of NetBackup.

We know NetBackup is the foundation of your backup and recovery needs and with this new release we are making sure using it is second nature to you.

NetBackup 8.1.2 is Simple, Intuitive, and Integrated because you asked for it to be this way.  This is our new design strategy and what you can expect us to deliver now, and in the future.
