NetBackup 7 Reduces Complexity by Delivering Complete Protection for Physical and Virtual Environments From a Single Platform
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, Sep 20, 2010 –(MARKETWIRE via COMTEX)– Symantec Corp. (SYMC) today announced that Symantec NetBackup 7 was recognized as a “Best of VMworld” 2010 Gold Award winner for the Business Continuity and Data Protection category by TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization.com. NetBackup 7 helps organizations protect, store and recover information from both physical and virtual environments through a single, unified platform to reduce overall complexity, reduce backup times and save operational costs.
The award was announced at the VMworld North America 2010 Conference in San Francisco on Sept. 1. In the past four years, NetBackup has been recognized three times in this category.
According to SearchServerVirtualization.com, “Symantec NetBackup 7 is a trusted product that lets you restore to multiple hypervisors and storage platforms, both on premise and in the cloud. It’s easy to use, always works and has strong hypervisor integration.” An independent team of experts and editors from SearchServerVirtualization.com evaluated and judged more than 200 entrants over eight categories according to innovation, value, performance, reliability, and ease of use.
“Symantec NetBackup 7 delivers comprehensive virtual machine protection that allows organizations to leverage a single solution to protect their information — regardless of where it resides — within physical or virtual environments,” said Brian Dye, vice president, Information Management Group, Symantec “As the adoption of virtual technologies increases, so do backup complexities and NetBackup solves this challenge for our customers through innovative technology validated by this recognition.”
According to Symantec’s 2010 State Of The Data Center survey, virtual machine protection continues to be a focus for enterprises. However, only 27 percent of companies include virtual machine backup as part of their data centers’ disaster recovery strategies. In addition, 36 percent of respondents listed granular data recovery as the biggest challenge in providing data protection for virtual servers. As organizations increase the number of production applications in virtual environments, the need for a simple and comprehensive approach to backup and recovery becomes more important. NetBackup 7 simplifies virtual server data protection by integrating with VMware vStorage APIs for data protection to increase the backup speed and by enhancing the VMware vSphere Changed Block Tracking capability to enable individual file recovery from block-level incremental backups. NetBackup 7 also adds built-in deduplication to further decrease backup bandwidth, time, and storage for virtual and physical machines from a single solution.
At VMworld North America 2010, Symantec partnered with key industry leaders to present recent benchmark testing results for NetBackup. The testing results highlight the ability of NetBackup to protect more than 3,200 virtual machines on a single backup host, deliver effective media server throughput of 600 MB/s, and provide deduplication rates of more than 98 percent.
