SnapCenter backup management software: Protection perfected

Think data protection should be easy? We couldn’t agree more. NetApp® SnapCenter® software simplifies backup, restore, and clone management across disparate applications and infrastructures.

Why NetApp SnapCenter for data protection?

Enterprise-ready, easy-to-use, oh-so-reassuring

NetApp SnapCenter software is an easy-to-use enterprise platform to securely coordinate and manage data protection across applications, databases, virtual machines, and file systems.

SnapCenter simplifies backup, restore, and clone lifecycle management by offloading these tasks to application owners without sacrificing the ability to oversee and regulate activity on the storage systems. And by leveraging storage-based data management, it enables increased performance and availability, as well as reduced testing and development times.

Key benefits

Leveraging storage-based data management, SnapCenter enables increased performance and availability and reduced testing and development times.
