Veritas announces support for AWS Outposts

09 Dec 2019

Veritas Technologies can now support AWS Outposts, hailing a new era of enterprise workload protection for end user customers, no matter where they are running.

AWS Outposts are fully managed and configurable compute and storage racks built with Amazon Web Services (AWS)-designed hardware that allow customers to run compute and storage on-premises, while connecting to AWS’s broad array of services in the cloud. 

“Basically, think of it like running AWS Services in your own data center,” says Veritas’ Karthik Ramamurthy in a blog.

Veritas says it has tested AWS Outposts and can help to deliver positive customer outcomes at scale through re-architecting complex workloads to run on AWS.

Veritas explains that AWS and Veritas customers may have certain workloads that need to remain on-premises for several years, such as applications that are latency sensitive and need to be near on-premises assets. These customers want to be able to run AWS compute and storage on-premises, while easily and seamlessly integrating these workloads with the rest of their applications on AWS.

Until now, customers lacked the same APIs, tools, hardware, and functionality across on-premises and cloud to deliver a truly consistent hybrid experience. AWS Outposts solves these challenges by delivering racks of AWS compute and storage—the same hardware used in AWS public region data centres—to customers, bringing AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models on-premises.

With AWS Outposts, Veritas can help AWS customers overcome the challenges that exist with managing and supporting infrastructures in both on-premises and cloud environments and deliver positive outcomes at scale.

 “Today’s announcement is a testament to the continuous expansion of the relationship between Veritas and AWS,” says Veritas executive vice president of enterprise data protection and compliance, Deepak Mohan.

“Supporting AWS Outposts with Veritas NetBackup provides our customers with proven solutions while ensuring that data is available and protected at the edge and across cloud and on-premises environments. With NetBackup, customers can protect enterprise workloads regardless of where they are running.”

Veritas adds that it worked closely with the AWS Outposts team to be one of the first AWS Partner Network (APN) members to successfully test and validate its solution with AWS Outposts. This included the deployment of a NetBackup Amazon Machine Image (AMI) to AWS Outposts and the backup and recovery of workloads for mission critical applications between AWS Outposts and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

Validating Veritas NetBackup on AWS Outposts provides the enterprise scale data protection that Veritas is known for to newly extended on-premises environments.
