Data protection company Veritas Technologies has unveiled the Veritas Flex 5150 appliance, a complete data protection solution purpose built for the edge of enterprise networks.
The Flex 5150 is the first appliance from Veritas to bring the NetBackup enterprise-class data protection to edge, branch, and remote offices.
Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 50 percent of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside the data center or cloud.
However, while data at the edge requires the same enterprise-class protection as in the data center, remote and branch locations have cost and space constraints that are unique to those environments.
Veritas executive vice president Phil Brace says the Flex 5150 is an exciting first step in extending the reach of the Enterprise Data Services Platform beyond just the data center and the cloud.
“Trends such as 5G and IoT are leading to a more decentralized IT infrastructure. And while the need for data to always be available and protected, no matter where it lives, is not going away, ‘how’ this gets done needs to adapt in light of these trends.”
The Benefits of the Flex 5150 for enterprise data protection include protection and restoration of data at the edge, where it is created and seamlessly integrates with NetBackup in the data center and in the cloud through a modern containerized architecture among other features.
The Flex 5150 will be generally available before the end of the year.
