Veritas Technologies has released Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 with a ‘radically improved’ user interface and enhanced ways of backing up and restoring data on premise and in the cloud.

With the new intuitive interface that enables authorised employees to easily protect and monitor their own data, on premises or in multi-cloud environments, Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 ‘simplifies day-to-day operations and empowers employees to play an important data management role in their department’. All authorised users, including backup administrators, will now be able to securely access and manage the backup and recovery of their company data with just a few clicks using their mobile device.

Through integration with the ‘Veritas Smart Meter’ web service, users can easily identify any issues, view a report of capacity usage and take action to keep their backup environments running smoothly.

Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 unifies data protection for multi-cloud, virtual, physical, and next-generation workloads with petabyte-scale performance, all managed from a single console. It offers increased functionality and enterprise-scale backup for VMware customers, as well as integration with other modern workloads. This is achieved through instant access to their systems with the new interface and the ability to restore a single file without an agent. NetBackup supports Hadoop, Nutanix, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, SQLite, HBase and MongoDB.
