Veritas 360 – CloudPoint

Following a presentation by Veritas at Cloud Field Day, Ned Bellavance wanted to try out CloudPoint, their cloud-native backup solution.

Ned sees a lot of interesting ideas in CloudPoint, and hopes that Veritas will continue to invest in it to get it production ready.

ThinkPiece: Cloud Field Day: Can an old dog, learn new tricks?

At Cloud Field Day Michelle Laverick saw some encouraging sign from established companies adapting to the reality of the cloud. NetApp, Oracle, and Veritas all showed that despite being incumbent companies, they have identified how to be competitive against newer cloud-focused startups. This often involved spinning up entirely new teams that can operate with agility. Not every company was convincing in their cloud play, but Michelle was definitely impressed to see older companies making moves to stay competitive with the cloud giants.

At Cloud Field Day last month, Chris Evans got to see three companies showing different facets of how to deliver backup. Veritas, Rubrik, and Druva all have different visions of how organizations should handle data management and protection. Chris takes a look at how some are transforming to handle new workloads, while others are expanding to add new functionality, scale, and scope.


Cloud Field Day 3; Day 3 – That One Thing….

Chris Porter finishes up his rundown of each day of last week’s Cloud Field Day in this post. That Friday saw two companies present, Druva and Veritas. Chris was intrigued by the possibilities Druva’s cloud-native data management as a service provided, particularly with running VMware workloads on VMC, effectively keeping all your infrastructure inside of AWS. Veritas’ CloudPoint stood out to Chris because of its unique support for native snapshots on EC2, Azure, and GCP instances.
