I wanted to share the latest updates on the new version of CatMan toolset. We have now re-architected the data transfer portion of the tools to make it more resilient and reliable. The version with this feature set is 2.5.4. The main changes are as follows:

  1. Bi-directional communications between the source and target: We now use two ports 9998 and 9999 to communicate between the source and target machines. With this bi-directional communications, both the source and target are in sync with each other and each side knows if there are any failures on the other side.
  2. Multiple Re-tries for data chunks: As you already know that we break the data up into multiple chunks of max 10 GB for each chunk. We have implemented multiple re-tries to make sure that if a chunk fails the first time due to network issues, it will re-send that chunk until it succeeds. If after several re-tries, the chunk fails to tranfer to the...

We’ve pushed the backup performance envelope so that you don’t have to! VMware Backup Benchmarks have been around since 2007 and continue to be an important part of keeping data centers running smoothly.

Tune in to the next installment of our Google+ Hangout Virtual Vision series for a more in-depth discussion and lessons learned from a panel of experts on a best practice framework and performance benchmarks based on VMware’s vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). We’ll show you how to protect 4 TB of virtual machine data an hour, and prove how easy this can be done with minimal hardware and a small budget.

Tune in and get your questions answered live by our expert panelists during the event by submitting your questions to the hashtag #SYMCHangout or Google+ events page.

IDC's new report has shown that NetBackup Appliances experienced a 149.3% growth year over year at the end of Q1 2013. Symantec outpaced both the industry growth (16.3%) and it's competitors (EMC 8.4% and Qunatuum 2.5%). This is excellent news and I'm happy to share the press release here with you all. I want to thank all the partners and their sales team to help position NetBackup Appliances to the customers. Please remember that we have tools and certified partners available to help our customers to migrate their existing NetBackup Catalogs to the NetBackup Appliance masters. This is indeed an exciting time at Symantec!

An account executive I work with recently asked me for two questions to start discussions with his customers on backup and recovery issues.  Limiting this to only two is a challenge so this post is the first two questions I would suggest.
 
Two simple questions to ask yourself (or your customers)
 
1.     How are you positioned for Disaster Recovery?
2.     Do you want to be tape free?
 
Both of these are intertwined with the trends in the data protection space, driven by  Deduplication appliances and replication.
 
Let’s hit the second question first.  Tape has its place for longer term retention.  That has not disappeared for most organizations.  “Cloud” based archiving services are starting to...

Didn't get to attend a session at Vision 2013 that you wanted to? 

Or maybe this year you didn't get to attend Vision at all?  We've decided to take some of our top non-security Vision sessions and make them available through Google+ Hangouts On Air. Topics will focus on backup and recovery, archiving and eDiscovery, and business continuity and disaster recovery.

Each session will be broadcasted free to give you an opportunity to hear about the technology from the experts, get some insight into the roadmap and futures, and get your questions answered live.

Here's what you should do:
