Getting a handle on data

Getting a handle on data 

With more and more data being uploaded to on-premises and cloud platforms, it may seem that information is not as secure as it once was.  A portfolio from Symantec’s newly separated information management business, Veritas, is aiming to bridge this gap between companies and their data.

The update is tackling unchecked data growth and fragmented storage through an unconventional lens.  By simplifying the management of hybrid cloud infrastructures and providing extended protection for VMware and Microsoft virtual environments, businesses are able to control, categorize and prioritize their own information.

“To make sense of tremendous volumes of data, we know that traditional infrastructure-centric approaches alone no longer work,” says Matt Cain, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer for Veritas. “These new offerings will help our customers realize information availability while gathering the insight critical to supporting their business goals.”

Understanding and capitalizing data value is critical: it is estimated that only 1.5 per cent of an organization’s data is truly valuable, and that this data is often lost in the masses.

“Businesses and individuals are creating more data than ever – and IT organizations are struggling to manage the increasing scope and size of their data storage needs,” says Laura DuBois, Program Vice President, Storage and GRC Infrastructure, IDC. “Veritas is well positioned to help companies tap into their data to gain more value, as well as ensure the availability and recovery necessary in today’s ever-changing business marketplace.”

The portfolio is headed by the release of Veritas NetBackup 7.7, Symantec’s backup system. The latest installment features enhanced datacenter integration and cloud performance. Other updates include the company’s InfoScale, Resiliency Platform and Data Insight applications.

In such dynamic spaces and times, it has become clear that only when knowledge is reliable can businesses begin to exert its power.
