Symantec NetBackup*: Scalable Purpose-Built Enterprise Backup
Scalable Purpose-Built Backup Appliance for Enterprise
The Data Deluge
As the demand for data increases by more than 50 percent every year, organizations are struggling to manage, maintain, and secure their data, according to the IDC Predictions 2011: Welcome to the New Mainstream report. IT departments often turn to a host of multiple vendor solutions to help manage the ever-increasing flow of data, while others continue to rely on tape-based solutions. These measures have added another layer of complexity for IT departments including slower bandwidth, sluggish network performance, higher capital costs for more storage, and increasing operational expenses for data protection.
Powerful and Scalable Data Protection Solution
Symantec, the world-leading security and storage solution provider, has confronted the worldwide data growth and protection challenge with the Symantec NetBackup* 5220 Appliance. This single-vendor, purpose-built, enterprise backup appliance from Symantec decreases backup storage up to 50 times and bandwidth consumption by up to 99 percent.
The NetBackup 5220 addresses the complexities and challenges associated with traditional data backup by enabling fast, efficient, reliable, and content-aware deduplication of data across data centers, remote offices, and virtual machines (VMs). It is equipped with Symantec NetBackup powered by V-Ray technology, which provides unique visibility into virtual environments that speeds recovery and reduces storage costs. The built-in replication engine for deduplicated data makes it possible to securely replicate to other Symantec NetBackup appliances and NetBackup deduplication pools, which helps organizations prepare for disaster recovery in case of a site outage.
While other deduplication devices require integration with traditional backup software, the NetBackup 5220 Appliance is a complete data protection solution, purpose-built for full protection. Symantec’s Front-end Terabyte licensing model helps customers pay for the amount of data being protected, rather than what the appliance is capable of protecting.
