Axiz has announced the local availability of Veritas NetBackup v9, addressing local enterprises’ need for advanced data protection and availability across public cloud, private cloud and hybrid environments.

Lee Williams, Veritas Product Manager at Axiz, says the latest version of Veritas V9 was released on 29 March this year, bringing a comprehensive solution to address top-of-mind challenges facing enterprises today. “For local organisations, the growing risk of ransomware, the need for more stringent data protection and secure data management across cloud environments are top priorities,” she says.

Williams notes that digital transformation, a growing focus on compliance and increasing cyber risk have made data protection and a high level of data availability critical for organisations.

“Veritas NetBackup v9 addresses challenges across these areas. Since the new catchphrase is 'move to the cloud', Veritas NetBackup offers data protection and data availability across leading cloud platforms. For data protection, availability, agility and scalability, it ticks all the boxes.”

As the number one enterprise backup and recovery solution offering unified protection from edge to core to cloud, Veritas NetBackup addresses the need to protect and manage data more efficiently. For over a decade, NetBackup has led the industry as the most popular enterprise data protection software by market share, is used by the largest enterprises on the planet and has been named a leader 15 times in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, due to the fact that it is trusted and ‘just works’.

NetBackup 9 reduces the staggering complexity of enterprise data protection with a unified data protection and recovery solution built on converged infrastructure that easily scales, while providing best-in-class performance for petabyte-level capacity. This paves the way to IT as a service and lays the foundation for universal data management.

Veritas gives enterprises the choice to use the technologies their business needs and to keep data resilient while also providing the freedom to choose any deployment mode for NetBackup – NetBackup Flex, NetBackup Flex Scale, NetBackup Appliances, a cloud instance or build-your-own (BYO). The solution provides the infrastructure to integrate with future technologies, allowing you the freedom to adapt to your changing environment.

As a single, unified solution to protect all data assets, NetBackup reduces cost and complexity – providing support for virtually every server, storage, hypervisor, database, application and cloud platform used by enterprises today. Featuring high performance, intelligent automation and centralised management, the platform can protect any workload at scale, eliminating the need for point products.

NetBackup integrates with dozens of server operating system (OS) versions, including Microsoft Windows, Linux and Unix files. It also integrates with leading hypervisors including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, Red Hat Virtualization, Docker, Azure Stack and OpenStack. NetBackup integrates with leading relational database and application platforms, including IBM DB2, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Oracle RAC and SAP.

NetBackup protects data at the storage system level by integrating with various snapshots and the Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) supported on Pure Storage, Dell EMC, HPE, Hitachi, IBM, NetApp and others. Using snapshots enables a fast point-in-time recovery and helps perform efficient backups. NetBackup supports the backup and recovery of workloads within cloud environments by leveraging cloud-native snapshot technology on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
