Introducing the Veritas Enterprise Data Services Platform!

Were you one of the thousands of people who watched us launch our largest solution of that last 10 years? Let's just say it was a show stopper.

Our Enterprise Data Services Platform offers solutions in the three areas that matter most: availability, protection, and insights. It’s the most versatile and extensible platform available to enterprises and represents the perfect IT foundation. It’s built on a NetBackup 8.2 core and supports 500+ data sources, 150+ storage targets, and 60+ clouds—and it can be deployed in any form factor today.

Watch our Keynote to learn more.

Veritas Access Achieves IPv6 Certification

Access and Access Appliance 7.4.2 (currently shipping) now have full IPv6 certification.

Data Protection Product Positioning for Virtual Workloads

Effective July 1, 2019 Veritas is making some changes to license offerings. In January 2019 we removed NEVC from our price lists, but allowed sales of NEVC, under specific conditions. Starting July 1, 2019, we will no longer sell NEVC to new customers.
All future NEVC sales will require a valid Veritas approved Quote.
In lieu of NEVC, position Backup Exec V-Ray or the new NetBackup Complete Edition with Flexible Licensing offering Veritas introduced on June 3rd, 2019. For additional details refer to the Data Protection for Virtual Workloads positioning guide available on PartnerNet at the following link.
