Are you one of those IT folks that believe in the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” philosophy when it comes to your backup environment? Maybe it took a while to get the entire backup and restore procedure, tuning, policies and internal SLA’s all set and defined, and now you are content that “it’s running”. Or, maybe you fear the unknown, downtime and complexity of the upgrade process itself, and so you “leave well enough alone”, even if it means not taking advantage of some of those nice features that caught your attention in the new release.
Coming up next week, May 7th through 10th at Vision 2012 in Las Vegas, we can share with you what others have experienced with their upgrades, and some valuable information from the Symantec experts.
March 2012 saw the release of NetBackup 7.5 with new features such as NetBackup Accelerator, NetBackup Replication Director, and NetBackup Search. This session looks at the upgrade process of moving to NetBackup 7.5 and the associated catalog format conversion. In addition, hear an update from the Symantec Technical Support Organization on feedback they are receiving from customers, as well as a first-hand account from one Rapid Adopter Program customer about their upgrade experience.
Understanding the best practices, do’s and don’ts, functionality changes, etc., you can come away with a solid strategy on how to upgrade to 7.5 in your environment, and how to put those old worries and fears to bed.
Are you ready to learn more? If so, please take a few moments to visit our website or in person at Symantec VISION 2012 in May, and find out how upgrading to NetBackup 7.5 can benefit you!
