Veritas Technologies has been busy cozying up to public cloud providers in 2017, adding an extended partnership with Google to the list this week.
The partnership includes Veritas NetBackup and Backup Exec data protection software and the Veritas Enterprise Vault archiving application.
Organizations can protect data in Google Cloud Storage coldline and nearline storage tiers with Veritas NetBackup and Backup Exec. They can also use the backup apps to protect Google Compute Engine workloads.
Customers can move archive data to the Google cloud by using Veritas Enterprise Vault and make decisions on what data to keep and delete by selecting policies, classifications and automation tools. They can also use Veritas Enterprise Vault.cloud to meet regulatory and retention requirements in Google’s G Suite Enterprise Gmail.
“The amount of data being created is just gigantic but, more importantly, how do you understand that data and monitor it? There are a lot of customers that have data that they are not touching,” said Scott Genereux, Veritas’ executive vice president of worldwide field operations.
This is the third cloud partnership that Veritas has signed this year. Last month, Veritas announced an extensive partnership with Microsoft Azure, in which both companies will work together in development and marketing for hybrid cloud deployments. Veritas also announced that its Resiliency Platform, InfoScale and Access all support Amazon Web Services.
Veritas is working on rebuilding itself after splitting from Symantec in early 2016. The company is trying to shift from being a legacy backup vendor to a full-scale data management platform.
