Veritas Technologies has 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 the management of critical services’ uptime 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, 3rd 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 premise 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% of organizations have a downtime tolerance of less than 1 hour, but only 22% of them have the assurance that they can recover predictably with over a 90% success rate for their recovery tests. 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 like Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives across complex, multi‐platform and multi‐vendor private, public and hybrid cloud environments.
