Hitachi Data Systems Corporation will resell Symantec NetBackup data protection software and Enterprise Vault information archiving software.
The extended agreement with Symantec enables HDS to offer the best information management, software and services.
Symantec NetBackup and Enterprise Vault are available to HDS customers in North and South America, EMEA and Asia Pacific through existing Hitachi TrueNorth Partners or directly from HDS. Through a phased strategy for data protection solutions, HDS and TrueNorth Partners will work with customers to build a more advanced data management-based protection and recovery solution.
“The combined solution of Enterprise Vault and Hitachi Content Platform enables customers to reduce overall storage costs, reduce backup windows, and achieve regulatory and corporate governance mandates,” said Mike Walkey, senior vice president, Global Partners and Alliances, Hitachi Data Systems.
Enterprise customers want an end-to-end solution from a single vendor to solve their data protection and retention problems. Businesses want to know their data is protected today more than ever before. The rise in big data analysis and the competitive advantage it brings has made that data more valuable to business. As a result, the need to protect data is increasing along with complexity, while budgets are decreasing.
