Hot on the heels of Amazon Web Services' announcement of its AWS Outposts on-premises systems, Veritas said it has validated its NetBackup backup software on the new equipment.
"Veritas has tested AWS Outposts and can help to deliver positive customer outcomes at scale through re-architecting complex workloads to run on AWS," company officials said.
Just as AWS Outposts provides a consistent platform for organisations that want to run some workloads in the cloud while keeping some on premises, Veritas NetBackup provides a single backup environment for both.
Veritas's testing included deploying a NetBackup Amazon Machine Image to AWS Outposts and the backup and recovery of workloads for mission critical applications between AWS Outposts and Amazon S3.
"Today's announcement is a testament to the continuous expansion of the relationship between Veritas and AWS," said Veritas executive vice president of enterprise data protection and compliance Deepak Mohan.
"Supporting AWS Outposts with Veritas NetBackup provides our customers with proven solutions while ensuring that data is available and protected at the edge and across cloud and on-premises environments.
"With NetBackup, customers can protect enterprise workloads regardless of where they are running."
