Cloudian HyperStore Selected for Symantec Veritas NetBackup 7.7

As cloud storage platform

Cloudian, Inc., a provider of enterprise-grade storage solutions, has been selected by Symantec’s Veritas NetBackup 7.7 as a supported cloud-based backend on-premises data store.

The new Cloudian cloud connector for NetBackup 7.7, designed on Amazon S3, allows organisations to leverage the cloud as a new storage tier, or as a secondary off-site location, for backup and recovery, at a reduced cost, with increased agility and ease of use.

Enterprises running Cloudian HyperStore count on its leading flexibility and scalability to build a full-featured 100% Amazon S3-compliant private cloud, on-premises, and to tier data to a public cloud,” said Paul Turner, CMO, Cloudian. “More and more enterprises are adding cloud storage to their backup storage strategy; the combination of Cloudian HyperStore with NetBackup 7.7 enables IT organisations to reduce costs while gaining elasticity and agility by using an integrated, scale-out object storage for backup and recovery.

As IT organisations wrestle with increasing storage costs, many are turning to cloud storage to supplement their backup needs, so it was natural to align ourselves with Cloudian, a proven leader in cloud storage services,” said Judy Kay, VP, product marketing and solutions management, Veritas. “As an integrated solution, NetBackup 7.7 software and Cloudian HyperStore cloud storage provide enterprises with an easy way to extend their data protection strategy into the cloud.

The Cloudian cloud connector takes advantage of multi-streaming and other techniques to utilise network bandwidth, reducing backup and recovery times when compared to previous releases.

The integrated solution helps deliver an automated and policy-based backup and recovery solution, centralising all an organisation’s backups across the globe on a single storage platform.

The Cloudian connector for NetBackup 7.7 works straight out of the box – no additional software installations or plug-ins required.
