Latest NetBackup Appliance Doubles Capacity and Turbocharges Performance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Oracle OpenWorld 2015 – October 26, 2015 — / — Veritas Technologies LLC, a global leader in information management solutions, today debuted NetBackup™ Copilot, a revolutionary new way to protect Oracle databases. Available with the latest release of Veritas NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1, Copilot provides unmatched visibility into backup and recovery processes and is a robust extension to Veritas’ enterprise-class product portfolio. Today’s announcement continues to strengthen the company’s role with key partners like Oracle.

A New Way to Protect Oracle
With NetBackup Copilot for Oracle, Veritas is significantly improving the backup and recovery of Oracle databases. For the first time ever, Oracle database administrators (DBAs) can maintain control over primary backup and recovery operations using native Oracle tools while secondary operations and policies are managed by NetBackup administrators. This allows Oracle DBAs to manage backup and recovery through tools like RMAN while NetBackup administrators oversee operations such as deduplication, replication and cataloging. In addition, the feature provides full visibility into and awareness of other administrator’s activities.

“As the size of databases continues to increase, IT organizations are challenged to keep up with the demands it places on staff, storage and network resources. NetBackup Copilot for Oracle offers a fresh, new approach to simplifying Oracle database backup and recovery,” said Scott Anderson, Senior Vice President, Appliance Solutions, for Veritas. “Standardizing on NetBackup, a single, unified, data protection platform, helps ensure customers’ critical data is secure and always available.”

The Copilot capability combines industry-leading NetBackup software and NetBackup Appliances to deliver breakthrough performance within a self-service operating model. NetBackup Copilot allows DBAs to independently manage backups on their own schedule, maintain visibility across all storage tiers, and recover from any available copy. Backup administrators can implement policies to manage the storage, retention and movement of database backup copies to disk, tape or cloud storage tiers. In addition, Copilot dramatically reduces backup times with NetBackup Accelerator for Oracle, and increases database backup performance.

Reaching New Heights of Scalability
In addition to the Copilot feature, the new NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1 software doubles the storage capacity of the NetBackup 5330 Appliance series. This appliance series will support an additional storage expansion shelf along with higher capacity disk drives to increase usable capacity and the deduplication pool size to 458TB. The expanded capacity will enable customers to further reduce OpEx and CapEx.

By using these new features, companies can minimize cost and complexity of their data protection environment while improving the quality of service by expanding into the cloud, embracing as-a-service modes of operation and having greater insight into their data protection operations.

“As many IT environments struggle to achieve better data protection, preservation, availability and storage management, Veritas is delivering on its vision of information availability and insights with exciting new features like NetBackup’s Copilot. It is exciting to watch Veritas build on its data protection and data management pedigree with new storage insights and intelligence that recognize the cooperative requirements of workload administrators (like Oracle DBAs and backup admins) by delivering solutions that align with tomorrow’s IT challenges,” said Jason Buffington, Sr. Analyst on Data Protection, Enterprise Strategy Group.

Veritas NetBackup 7.7.1 is available now and NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1 will be generally available for customers in December, 2015, through the company’s channel partners, as well as directly through Veritas. For additional information on these releases, click here.
