This IDC Perspective analyzes upcoming changes to Veritas NetBackup pricing to support a growing range of backup workloads and better respond to these changing buyer demands. Enterprise software pricing strategies constantly evolve. For modern technology buyers, the "SaaSification" of IT solutions, from applications to infrastructure, has changed the way buyers look to procure and manage their IT solutions.
"Enterprise software pricing strategies are constantly evolving," said Andrew Smith, research manager, IDC's Enterprise Infrastructure Practice. "The 'SaaSification' of IT infrastructure solutions has changed the way buyers look to procure and manage their solutions — particularly for archive, backup, disaster recovery, and replication. Veritas NetBackup, one of the largest players in the market, is adapting to this trend with a new pricing strategy that will change the way buyers and partners leverage NetBackup for a range of secondary storage workloads."
