Symantec and NetApp deliver any data, anytime, anywhere.

T he Challenge: Achieving Manageable & Available Data Protection 

Explosive data growth overwhelms traditional data protection. Expanding the existing environment does not reduce backup and recovery times, but it can increase the management burden with multiple data protection methods and increase storage consumption with stale, redundant data copies.

The Solution: Unleashing the Potential of Disk-Based Backup 

Imagine centrally managing consolidated disk and tape backups. Imagine eliminating redundant data and administrative tasks. Imagine recovering data quickly and reliably. Imagine end users recovering their own data. Now imagine seamlessly integrating this solution into your existing NetBackup™ or NetApp® environment. Stop imagining. The solution exists.

Customers with Symantec™ NetBackup clients 5.0 or newer, NetBackup Media Server 6.0, NetApp NearStore® secondary storage, and SnapVault® software will enjoy enterprise data protection that integrates industry-leading backup management and disk storage. The solution improves backup performance, minimizes media consumption, simplifies recoveries, and enables end-user restores while seamlessly moving backup data across tiers of storage. Symantec and NetApp integrate NetBackup agents, backup, and media management with NetApp Snapshot™, SnapRestore®, and SnapVault technology to simplify data protection and increase data availability.
