The company is among the leading players in the market because of its strong product portfolio, of which 80% products are growing rapidly.”
In today’s business, data plays the most critical part in any decision-making, but unstructured data rate is growing faster than structured data. As per the company information, only 1.5% of zetabyte of data backed up today is actually actionable information. Many a time, companies do not know about the owner of the data after backing it up over various hybrid clouds. It results in data fragmentation. It is a challenge for Veritas to make the companies use its storage management technologies as they move more of their data to the cloud.
