Veritas InfoScale Enterprise 7.3 released

Veritas has announced the General Availability of InfoScale Enterprise 7.3

Veritas InfoScale is a software-defined storage (SDS) offering that simplifies management of storage and applications across the data center. It's an efficient application-aware storage management solution that can be used across heterogeneous storage and server environments. It gives administrators the flexibility of managing their storage assets with file systems and block storage, protects their data with high-performance mirrors, provides application visibility, and simplifies the orchestration of multi-tier business services.

In particular, this release builds on InfoScale's key ability to enable mission-critical Tier 1 apps to maintain predictable high performance and high availability on premises or in the cloud.

InfoScale Enterprise 7.3 Agile enhances support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) by enabling customers to move their enterprise workloads to the public cloud, adds Azure cloud support in Storage Foundation for Windows (SFW), and provides an ability to consume cloud object storage as a tier.

Other highlights include:
  • Enhanced cloud deployment for mission-critical applications: Helps customers lift and evolve mission-critical enterprise workloads to public clouds such as AWS and Microsoft Azure; ensures efficient and intelligent data migration, as well as disaster recovery in multi-cloud environments.
  • Easier SDS adoption: Supports commodity hardware; ensures storage performance, and enables customers to take advantage of enhanced security features.
  • It beats or displaces the competition: Allows customers to perform online and non-disruptive migrations; replaces VMware, enabling the InfoScale stake development on Linux virtual machines running on Hyper-V 2016; reduces storage costs.
We provided a preview of InfoScale 7.3 to a broad range of stakeholders in preparation for this release and continue enablement activities to ensure that our field, sales engineering, renewals teams, and partners are armed with the information they need for their customer conversations.
