Veritas offers onshore cloud services

By

Information management vendor Veritas Technologies has begun offering cloud services running in Australian data centres.

Some Australian organisations want to make sure their data stays onshore, whether that's a matter of internal policy or the need to comply with externally-enforced regulations or laws. Consequently, Veritas Technologies has begun offering its cloud services from local data centres.

The company is using Equinix data centres, with its primary site in Sydney and the backup in Melbourne. These systems will not be linked to offshore sites.

The first Veritas service to be offered this way is the archiving and e-discovery product Veritas Enterprise Vault.cloud.

Veritas Enterprise Vault.cloud can be used with on-premises email servers such as Exchange or Domino, or with Microsoft Office 365.

It captures, stores and indexes business-critical information, including emails, attachments, Microsoft SharePoint, Box files, as well as content from unified communications and instant messaging systems, into a single, legally searchable, online repository, according to Veritas.

"Customers are asking for cloud solutions that allow them to leverage the flexibility of the cloud while maintaining their on-premise and private cloud investments. However, our hybrid cloud research shows that 24% of organisations are concerned with moving workloads to the cloud in order to keep confidential data in-country," said Veritas' senior vice president and APJ sales leader Chris Lin.

"Email is a top workload moving to the cloud and this investment enables us to bring our data centres to our customers' doorsteps to give them peace-of-mind that their data is retained within the country. We envisage strong demand for our Enterprise Vault.cloud solution as it simplifies customer infrastructure and lowers costs while providing data protection and advanced compliance including litigation-ready e-discovery capability."
