Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced the latest edition of Symantec NetBackup 7.6 FA to help enterprise organizations overcome their data protection challenges. The current approach to backup modernization offered by other vendors is broken. Data growth has been exponential while backup performance gains thus far have been incremental. At the same time, backup teams are frustrated with missed backup windows and non-integrated solutions for physical and virtual backups, deduplication and snapshots. Ultimately, organizations face a situation where recovery, the end goal of why backups exist, is complex and unnecessarily expensive.
Symantec is also continuing our expanded partnership with NetApp to integrate with NetBackup Replication Director, enabling customers to unify Snapshot and backup management, and remove the cost and risk associated with multiple backup and recovery tools. Replication Director enables organizations to reduce costs and complexity by recovering and managing backup and replicated Snapshots from a single, NetBackup management console.
NetBackup 7.6 will deliver the following benefits:
o Simplifying data protection operations with the freedom of storage choice to meet SLAs while optimizing CapEx and OpEx
- Replication Director
- V-Ray Virtualization
- VMWare Instant Recovery
- Targeted Auto Image Replication
- Centralized NetBackup Appliance Monitoring
- Physical to virtual recovery with Bare Metal Restore
- Improved Pre-Upgrade Checker
- Support for Windows 2012
NetBackup Support assistance for installations and upgrades is available for NetBackup 7.x on the Symantec Operational Readiness Tools (SORT) website. These tools will help determine the requirements for master, media, and clients.
