SYDNEY, Australia – October 20, 2022 -- Veritas Technologies, a leader in multi-cloud data management, today advanced its Autonomous Data Management strategy with the launch of Veritas Alta, a cloud data management platform that helps enterprises transition mission-critical workloads to the cloud. Veritas Alta harnesses the benefits of the cloud to reduce costs, strengthen ransomware resiliency, and ensure data is protected, available, and compliant. Veritas also introduced Veritas Alta View, a cloud-based management console that provides a unified view and control of the entire data estate—across edge, data center, and cloud—from a single pane of glass.
The rise of multi-cloud creates a transformative infrastructure and application development platform for enterprises. However, customers own the security, protection, compliance, and availability of their data within the cloud as part of a shared responsibility model with the cloud service provider (CSP). Tools offered by CSPs deliver basic functionality, but mission-critical applications require enterprise-grade capabilities, optimised cost management and cross-cloud data mobility and visibility.
Pete Murray, Managing Director, ANZ at Veritas said, “The rippling effect of massive cyber attacks underscores the importance for businesses to have visibility across their entire data estate—on-prem or in the cloud—for swift remedial action if anomalies are detected. With more than 30 years in enterprise-class data management innovation, our approach to multi-cloud will help to address the unique needs of the cloud for Australian businesses. Veritas Alta advances our mission to empower customers to own and control their data no matter where it resides, while reducing the operational complexity and costs associated with managing multi-cloud environments.”
Veritas Alta: Ultimate Control in the Cloud
Veritas Alta delivers a unified cloud data management platform that provides the broadest array of enterprise-class data services in the industry and brings together the entire cloud portfolio from Veritas.
Veritas Alta focuses on three key areas:
Veritas Alta View: Control Data Anywhere
Veritas Alta View provides a cloud-based management console that allows customers to manage their entire data protection estate, on-prem and in the cloud, from a single pane of glass. Rather than oversee multiple solutions for disparate on-prem and cloud workloads, customers can leverage a single management console for data in any location across multiple domains.
Veritas Alta View integrates the Veritas analytics engine to provide customers with complete reporting, actionable insights, and a full view of their cybersecurity posture across their entire data estate. It harnesses AI and machine learning to drive autonomous data management actions, freeing the IT team to focus on transformational activities. With the Veritas analytics engine, customers have reduced their IT management costs by 90%, and realised a 28% reduction in IT resources consumed in the cloud.
Christophe Bertrand, practice director at Enterprise Strategy Group, said, “Organisations are often confused about their data protection SLAs when they move their data and/or applications to the cloud, and may think that their responsibility to ensure the protection of these digital assets is somehow mitigated or just the vendor’s responsibility. The reality is much different: the data is in fact always the organisation’s responsibility. In a multi-cloud environment, which is becoming the norm, this data protection disconnect can easily become exacerbated, in particular when organisations use many different and poorly orchestrated data protection and data management mechanisms. Limiting the number of standalone, bolt-on solutions is much needed, which is the challenge that Veritas is taking on with its Alta unified management platform.”
