The future of enterprise-class virtual data protection is here. Traditional backup and recovery won't survive in a virtual world. Symantec NetBackup™ 7.6 with V-Ray Technology delivers the performance, automation, and manageability necessary to protect virtualized deployments at scale – where thousands of VMs and petabytes of data are the norm today, and where software-defined data centers and IT-as-a-service become the norm tomorrow. That's why, for over a decade, the world's largest enterprises have trusted NetBackup to protect their information on a multitude of virtual and physical platforms with their choice of disk, tape, snapshot, or cloud storage.
- Better Backup for Virtual Machine Sprawl: Speeds and feeds won't be enough to keep pace with your ever increasing number of virtual machines. NetBackup Accelerator for VMware® and Replication Director for VMware® replace traditional full backups with change tracking and snapshot technologies, shrinking an eight-hour backup window to less than fifteen minutes, while NetBackup Instant Recovery for VMware® reduces recovery time to a few minutes as VMs are booted directly from backup storage. As shifting demand causes VMs to be added or removed, NetBackup Elastic Automation adapts to these changes without requiring manual intervention or compromising data integrity. By leveraging the NetBackup Appliance, managing your backup and storage infrastructure becomes far simpler allowing you to manage more with the same staff.
- Better Backup as a Service: Whether offering backup or recovery services to external customers or to your own users internally through an IT service model, NetBackup has the tools to get you there. Build your service on the NetBackup platform with NetBackup Appliances to achieve rapid deployment and time-to-value. Take advantage of self-service restore, capacity license metering, chargeback reporting, multi-tenant 3rd party integration with Biomni, and special MSP pricing features to flesh out a backup service offering. For disaster recovery, combine NetBackup Auto Image Replication (AIR) with P2V Conversion to offer DRaaS within a cloud based on VMware.
- Better Backup for the Software-Defined Data Center: While the SDDC remains a future goal for many organizations, smaller testbeds and pilot projects are taking place now. NetBackup 7.6 is already integrated with the VMware® vCloud Suite to protect the "DNA" of the SDDC, and has proven capable within the Symantec Lab Cloud, one of the world’s largest SDDC deployments based on VMware vCloud Director supporting over 200,000 virtual machines.
