Symantec is reintroducing the Veritas brand with a new release of its NetBackup application, which for the first time unifies Symantec and third-party functions in one platform.
Veritas NetBackup 6.5, unveiled Tuesday at the Symantec Vision conference in Las Vegas, combines tape and disk backup, virtual tape libraries (VTLs), data de-duplication, continuous data protection (CDP), data snapshots and replication under a single licensing and pricing system, with an aim toward enabling storage to be delivered as a service.
Symantec is currently referring to some of its products as "Veritas NetBackup" and "Veritas PureDisk," said Marty Ward, director of product marketing for NetBackup. "The Veritas name still has a lot of recognition," he said. "You'll be seeing it a lot more."
