Deepak Mohan, Executive Vice President, Products Organisation at Veritas, said: “Digital transformation is helping enterprises to accelerate service delivery and reduce costs. The best strategy for businesses that want to embrace hyperconverged architectures is to standardise on a single data protection platform. Veritas NetBackup 9 with Flex Scale gives customers freedom of choice with the most flexible deployment models in the industry today by empowering them to protect over 800 workloads in a scale-out, scale-up, or cloud storage model.”

Ashish Nadkarni, Group Vice President at IDC, said: “Enterprises are looking to modernise their data centre operations through private and hybrid clouds, and this extends to scale-out architectural approaches. NetBackup 9 is designed to help customers standardise data protection across their environment, implementing operational simplicity regardless of workload, cloud or deployment model. With Veritas’ heritage of providing enterprise-class data protection, enterprises can now consume software-defined NetBackup in the cloud, as BYOS and purpose-built appliances, and now in a new, hyperconverged scale-out deployment mode – giving customers the breadth of diverse workload coverage – all from a single platform.”
