Organizations are looking to cloud-based solutions as a way to offload all or part of their IT operations. One of the most common use-cases for cloud storage backup in enterprises is to replace or augment tape-based off-site storage for disaster recovery readiness. The NetBackup Platform can provide you with that capability today.
NetBackup currently supports four of the industry-leading cloud storage providers: Amazon, AT&T Synaptic, Nirvanix SDN, and Rackspace. The NetBackup Platform includes the plugins to attach any of these cloud storage backup targets to enterprise. Just enter the credentials to authenticate and an easy to follow NetBackup cloud setup wizard will do the rest for you.
For those who want a private cloud backup solution, but don’t want to install NetBackup, you can bring in a NetBackup 5220 Appliance - the industry’s first primary heterogeneous cloud gateway for backups.
The primary show stopper in using cloud storage backup is the need for a large pipe to accommodate backup traffic. Symantec is committed to providing innovative ways to solve that challenge. With NetBackup Accelerator, you can perform full backups only using the bandwidth that’s normally required for an incremental backup. No need to compromise on recovery point objectives.
NetBackup 5220 has WAN Optimization driver built in to provide 2x faster throughput over and above the performance gain from NetBackup Accelerator.
