Veritas was recently named as a ‘Leader’ in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software for 2016, the only vendor to have held this position since the inception of the report in 1999.
Key innovations which continue to differentiate Veritas are:
Realising the value of the cloud: Whether backing up to the cloud, or protecting workloads in the cloud, NetBackup Cloud Connectors simplify the move to the cloud with single-click integration for a wide range of major cloud service providers including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Nearline Storage, Hitachi Cloud, and nearly any Amazon S3 compatible cloud storage platform.
Improving performance up to 10x and reducing Capex and Opex: NetBackup Appliances are a fast growing integrated backup appliance solution providing seamless integration and fast deployment options.
Powerful Backup as a Service: An intuitive ‘store front’ in NetBackup Self-Service empowers IT and MSPs to deliver backup and recovery as a service to internal and external customers, whether on premise, or in a public or private cloud.
Radically simplified Oracle database protection: Included in NetBackup 7.7, Copilot for Oracle creates a win-win by allowing the DBA to maintain control over primary backup and recovery operations using familiar RMAN tools while ensuring the backup administrator has full visibility.
Reduced risk in a constantly changing IT environment: NetBackup Intelligent Policies automate discovery and policy based backups to reduce risk and ensure constantly changing VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and SQL, and Oracle environments are always protected.
Best in class performance at scale: NetBackup has proven enterprise performance and scalability for 10 000s of VMs, the largest databases, petabytes of data, in the world’s largest enterprises.

Scott C Anderson, Vice President of Appliance Solutions for Veritas, highlights on the Veritas Official Blog a few key areas which Veritas believes any organisation should focus on, when looking for modern data protection solutions:
Unified protection across virtual, cloud and physical. When we look at backup and recovery we look at it holistically. How can we develop and innovate NetBackup to provide the scalability, performance, and reliability to protect large, complex heterogeneous environments, while backing up and recovering from disk, tape, dedupe, cloud no matter where it resides? When developing your data protection strategy, I recommend you think about your future growth needs and look for a converged backup infrastructure platform.
Managing multi-hypervisor virtualisation: We know what it takes to protect 10 000s to 100 000s of VMs and petabytes of data across many complex geographically dispersed locations. And with NetBackup you get the brains with the brawn. NetBackup Intelligent Policies, granular recovery, agentless backup and use of familiar VM consoles are just a few of the best in class capabilities we provide for virtualised workloads.
Paving the path to the hybrid cloud. 90% of our enterprise customers tell us they are moving to the hybrid cloud and are looking to NetBackup to help pave the way. NetBackup integrated cloud connectors simplify and manage the move to the hybrid cloud with single-click configuration. In addition, we easily converge on-and off-premise data protection with scalable, cloud-ready solutions that cover backup to the cloud as well as protecting workloads in the cloud.
The way Oracle DBAs like it. I don’t think we’d find too many DBAs that wouldn’t confess to being control freaks, but with good reason. If one of their mission-critical databases goes down it’s their job on the line. NetBackup Copilot for Oracle revolutionises the protection and management of Oracle Database data allowing DBAs to independently manage backups on their own schedules, maintain visibility across all storage tiers, and recover from any available copy while allowing backup admins full visibility through NetBackup.
Self-service means getting backup your way. “Backup-as-a-Service” is a common theme among many enterprise customers, MSPs, and GSIs looking to reduce risk, cost, and complexity and the opportunity to bring new service offerings to market. NetBackup provides many self-service options that leverage its sheer power, scale, and diverse workload support and lets VMware, Hyper-V, and Oracle administrators and MSPs manage data protection through familiar consoles.
Visibility and what to do with all that data. For those customers that use NetBackup to protect their enterprise, we have an exciting new capability called InfoMap that delivers a global view of all their data and the ability to drill into each location to better understand its value and relevance to their organisation. This powerful new insight leverages the NetBackup enterprise-class catalog and index capabilities.
