Veritas Launches Resiliency Platform 2.0 Boosting VMware Integration to Power Single-Click Resiliency Across Complex, Hybrid Environments

Veritas Technologies, the leader in information management, today announced the release of Veritas Resiliency Platform 2.0, featuring a built-in VMware certified data mover that achieves a significantly lower Recovery Point Objective (RPO) compared to VMware's native data mover VMware vSphere Replication.

Resiliency Platform empowers organizations to maintain critical business uptime across complex, multi-platform and multi-vendor private, public and hybrid cloud environments by delivering predictability for all resiliency operations, including workload migration, failover, failback, data protection, and non-disruptive recovery testing. The built-in data mover in Resiliency Platform 2.0 simplifies uptime management for critical services by integrating seamlessly into VMware environments, so organizations can gain greater benefits from their existing VMware investments.

In addition, organizations can achieve increased benefits from other IT investments with Resiliency Platform's support for industry-leading high availability solutions, third-party hardware-based data movers and other virtualization platforms such as Microsoft Hyper-V. The new built-in data mover in 2.0 further strengthens Veritas' commitment to empower organizations to architect their IT postures with freedom of choice.

"Hybrid cloud architectures are the new norm as organizations move beyond their traditional on-premises data centers into the cloud," said Mike Palmer, GM/SVP at Veritas. "Resiliency Platform 2.0 helps businesses ensure resiliency for their critical business applications and associated data across their constantly evolving IT environments with a single solution no matter what the underlying technologies are."

Predictably managing business uptime in a 24/7 world is a major issue as applications are often running across multiple platforms, operating systems as well as rely on various storage vendors for hosting application data. The Enterprise Strategy Group states that 51 percent of organizations have a downtime tolerance of less than one hour, but only 22 percent of them have the assurance that they can recover predictably with more than a 90 percent success rate for their recovery tests1. In some cases, business applications may even have individual tiers running in different locations.

In such complex environments relying on manual processes, spreadsheets or point tools to manage resiliency leads to a lack of centralized visibility, inefficiencies, unpredictability and, most importantly, an increased risk of downtime. With this new release, Resiliency Platform 2.0 allows organizations to implement a business resiliency strategy that provides predictability in meeting Service Level Objectives (SLOs) like Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and RPO across complex, multi-platform and multi-vendor private, public and hybrid cloud environments.

Key capabilities of Resiliency Platform 2.0 include:

  • Ease of management for business resiliency across multi-platform, multi-vendor environments with a single solution
  • Comprehensive visibility via a single dashboard into real-time health of all applications, virtual machines, multi-tier business services and data movers across sites
  • Lower RPOs and flexibility of data mover choice with new VMware certified built-in data mover
  • Predictability of meeting RTOs and RPOs via automation and orchestration for all resiliency operations

The latest release of Resiliency Platform helps ensure that businesses can meet their SLOs for all their business applications, whether they need to protect their most mission-critical applications from any downtime or less-critical systems from extended downtime.
