I'm very pleased to announce that NetBackup 7.5 is now available!

The marquee features of NetBackup 7.5 include:
  • Replication Director

    This feature offers a unified, policy-based management of backups, snapshots and replication.

    NetApp Plug-in for Symantec NetBackup Replication Director” and an hotfix for NetBackup 7.5. Both will be available beginning mid-March 2012. The hotfix for NetBackup will be available on Symantec support web site and the plug-in will be available on the NetApp NOW Site.

  • Deduplication

    This release offers improved deduplication integration, scalability, performance, and stability.

  • Virtualization

    NetBackup for VMware and NetBackup for Hyper-V have both been improved. If you are still running agents "in the guest", it is time to leverage the benefits in these built-for-virtualization solutions.

  • Accelerator

    This feature offers intelligent, streamlined backups to disk. It addresses the increase in the amount of data to backup and the need to reduce the backup windows.

  • Search

    This feature provides an Information Management solution that couples backup, recovery, archive, and discovery.

  • Cloud

    This release contains a new Cloud-based storage that features Encryption.

  • Telemetry

    This feature provides data collection and upload capabilities for NetBackup and OpsCenter installations.

  • New platform support has been added to provide automated Bare Metal Restore of more platforms and configurations; expand embedded deduplication, and expand support to address market needs for database agents.

Where might I find the md5-sum values for the 7.5 binaries? Someone here downloaded them without the readme files. NBU v7.5 is not showing on our licensing portal since we have purchased the upgrade to v7.6. Thanks.
