Veritas 360 data management embraces cloud, dedupe, NoSQL

LAS VEGAS – Veritas Technologies today launched data deduplication for cloud data protection in NetBackup, new parallel streaming to protect NoSQL, Hadoop and Cassandra workloads, and a strategic cloud partnership with Microsoft.

The product upgrades came during the first day of the Veritas Vision 2017 user conference. The expanded application and cloud support are a part of the Veritas 360 data management strategy to protect data wherever it resides.

The cloud deduplication is part of NetBackup 8.1 enterprise backup software. The dedupe will be available either as licensed software or a NetBackup Cloud Catalyst 5240 Appliance. Customers can dedupe when they store and manage data in multi-cloud environments such as Amazon Glacier and the Microsoft Azure Blob. NetBackup is Veritas’ flagship backup application and it is the basis to the Veritas 360 Data Management Suite.

Veritas has included deduplication inside NetBackup for years, but this is the first dedupe engine certified for cloud providers, Veritas chief product officer Mike Palmer said. While others, such as Commvault Systems, also dedupe data going into the cloud, Palmer said Veritas dedupe speed gives it an edge.

“With the Cloud Catalyst Appliance, customers can integrate their NetBackup backup data to Amazon Glacier or the Azure Blob Storage,” Palmer said. “This is a proprietary deduplication engine.”

Veritas 360 data management supports cloud workloads, hyper-convergence

The Veritas NetBackup parallel streaming enables faster data protection capabilities for cloud-based, scale-out big data applications and workloads. Palmer said Veritas recognizes that creating and protecting scale-out stores for applications such as NoSQL is different than protecting a standard, standalone server.

“We can stream data back consistently from multiple servers in a backup solution and represent data across multiple stores,” he said. “We think our obligation is to protect data regardless of the workload that the customer has chosen. We see cloud workloads as an obvious example. NoSQL is another obvious example. Another one we are announcing is support for hyper-converged like Nutanix.”

The Veritas 360 Data Management platform first launched during Veritas Vision 2016, its first conference as an independent company after it was sold by security giant Symantec to the Carlyle Group private equity firm for $7.4 billion last year.

Veritas aims to build a broad management portfolio that goes beyond data protection to include orchestration, data analytics, data mobility and automated policy management for virtual, physical and cloud tiers, all managed from a single console.

Veritas, Microsoft partner on hybrid cloud support

The partnership with Microsoft is another step in Veritas’ quest to become a data management vendor. Microsoft now supports the Veritas Resiliency Platform, orchestration software that helps data recovery of multiple virtual machines in multi-vendor hybrid clouds.

Customers can monitor and do failover and failback of multi-tiered applications to and from Azure with one click. Customers can use the cloud as a recovery target in disaster recovery setups while automating DR testing.

Veritas also announced a Veritas Information Map connector for the Azure cloud. The information map gives customers visibility into their unstructured data inside Microsoft Azure Blob storage and Microsoft File Storage. That follows an Amazon Web Services S3 Connector for unstructured data in the Amazon cloud that launched in June.

Mark Russinovich, chief technology officer for Microsoft Azure, said the connector can give customers more control while migrating data into the cloud.

“One of the first tests when you talk about cloud migration is data classification,” Russinovich said. “You need to understand where your data is and what it is doing and what applications are doing because when you move data to the cloud, you need to keep in mind the data gravity problem. And you need to keep in mind the type of controls you put in place in the cloud to keep it secure and keep the costs under control.”

The Azure connector was among more than 30 new connectors for Information Map in Veritas 360 data management, including those for Box, Google Drive and Microsoft Office 365. The Veritas Information Map visualization tool helps identify risk, waste and complicated migration paths in multi-cloud environments. The ability to identify and delete data will be particularly important as organizations work to meet the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation requirements by May 2018.

“We will focus on classification engines so that unstructured data gets automatically classified instead of users having to go put metatags on data,” Palmer said. “We will talk about index engines and object stores so that when data goes into an object store, it can understand what the content was. We are about intelligent storage.”

Wanted – Any Xeon based kit or Server for sale?

Hi all,

As I’m a fulltime carer for my wife at home, I’m hoping to get back into remote support from home but I haven’t touched Windows Server since SBS 2008 so I’m hoping to find a Xeon based Server ideally so I can run ESXi along with Server 2012 eval and maybe more.

Has anyone got any kit for sale? I’m based in Bristol and have family in Plymouth and Haywards Heath.

Thanks in advance

Location: Bristol

Wanted – 34″ or more 21:9 monitor

I could be interested in selling my X34A ultra-wide. its just not getting used . as i purchased to use it for racing games and to use with my 2x980ti cards but now gone single 1080ti . I will just go back to my 32in 4k screen if i do sell .

its only a few months old bought for £905 from Very.co.uk . (email invoice available on sale) and didn’t even unbox it until mid july as it was in my hallway for a while debating whether to send back . to be honest i do like it and i will miss it but i don’t use it as much as i should . As im in process of selling most of the bits from the PC as i have high end laptop with GTX1080 .

the screen still has all the protective covering on the feet still and have the box and all accessories .

I have sold a few monitors on here with no problems .

monitor does have a bit of IPS glow in top right and top left of the screen but does not stop it from performing as it does .

100HZ works as it should as does the Gsync .

This is the updated model that swivels on a pivot .

let me know if interested .

P.S no dead pixles .

for me to sell also and every other screen i have sold the buyer arranges courier .

OneNote Class Notebooks get iPad updates, everyone gets new sticker packs |

With the new school year underway in many places around the world, we’re releasing a set of updates to help teachers save time, be more organized, and have fun.  Here are the updates for OneNote Class Notebooks, rolling out now:

iPad Class Notebook Toolbar

The OneNote Class Notebook toolbar is available on many platforms already, including OneNote Desktop, OneNote for Windows 10, OneNote Online and OneNote Mac.  One of the top requests we’ve heard from you is for this capability to come to iPad.  With today’s update, we have started rolling out the Class Notebook toolbar for the iPad, adding teacher time-savers like page distribution, reviewing student work, and shortcuts to quickly launch and manage the Class Notebook.

OneNote on iPad now supports stickers

One of the most popular features of the Class Notebook has been the ability for educators to easily give fun and personalized stickers to students. Today, we’re bringing those same stickers to the iPad platform – you’ll find them waiting on the Insert tab.

New sticker packs in all Class Notebooks

Last July, the Education team put out a social media call through @OneNoteEDU to help our team figure out the next type of sticker packs we should design.  After hearing from so many teachers across the world, we are excited to announce the two “winning” selections:

  • Dinosaur Sports
  • Unicorns

Here are a few, fun examples from each of the new sticker packs:

Both of these sticker packs are rolling out this week and should show up in your stickers options soon. We plan on having more opportunities to work with the education community to help guide our next sticker packs, so stay tuned and watch the @OneNoteEDU Twitter handle for more.

New OneNote Online user interface rolled out

As announced last May in the OneNote blog, the core OneNote organizational user interface has been improved and updated.  These improvements came after gathering feedback from teachers and students across the country, and to support our ongoing effort to make OneNote more accessible to all.  Now, the OneNote Online web app looks and acts much like the other versions of OneNote, including OneNote for Windows 10, Mac, iOS, and Android.

Updated Class Notebook add-in for OneNote Desktop

We have also just updated the Class Notebook add-in to version 1.8.3.0, which includes some useful assignment and grade integration improvements, along with other bug fixes.  To see release notes for this update and others, visit our Class Notebook add-in Instructions page.  And be sure to click the Update button in your toolbar.

We hope you enjoy these new updates. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at @OneNoteEDU, or get help from classnbk@microsoft.com.
