NetApp Driving Disk-to-Disk Backup, Archival, and Security Discussions at Symantec Vision 2006


Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) will make a splash at Symantec Vision 2006 in San Francisco May 8-10 with speaking opportunities, exclusive customer activities, and live product demonstrations-all in an effort to showcase and illustrate the value and powerful capabilities provided by its suite of world-class disk-to-disk (D2D) data protection solutions, as well as the unique benefits customers can realize through its collaboration with Symantec.

NetApp will focus on how advanced D2D solutions with Symantec® NetBackup™ software can be used to back up multivendor storage environments to NetApp® storage systems-helping customers simplify management, eliminate redundant data, and maximize data access.

NetApp will also highlight easy-to-manage archival and compliance solutions that leverage Symantec Enterprise Vault software and help users better manage e-mail and file growth, increase e-mail performance, reduce downtime, satisfy records retention regulations, and minimize electronic document discovery costs.

NetApp will conduct hands-on demonstrations of its advanced D2D backup, archival, and security solutions. NetApp representatives will be on hand to discuss the business benefits and technical details of the various solutions.

Additionally, NetApp will present at the following breakout sessions:


"From Vision to Reality: NetBackup and NetApp Disk-Based Backup in the Real World" will be presented by Stephen Manley, technical director of data management at NetApp. Manley will address the key findings and trends uncovered from the joint NetApp and Symantec initiative that was launched one year ago in an effort to help customers simplify backup management, optimize data recovery, and minimize the cost of data protection. This will be a real-world discussion of true backup strategy accomplishments.

  • Monday, May 8, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. PT, room 2018


"Simplify Enterprise Vault Archival with Network Appliance™ Storage Solutions" will be presented by Mike Riley, solutions architect for data protection, ILM, and compliance at NetApp. Riley will address how NetApp storage solutions simplify the deployment and operation of Enterprise Vault by utilizing a single infrastructure for both primary and secondary storage and by leveraging open standards for security, data protection, and data immutability as well as for the interface to the vault stores. Attendees will learn how the simplified NetApp architecture and data integrity features help data to remain accessible in a timely fashion in real-world environments.
