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...

AutoSupport provides proactive and automated support experiences for appliance customers. When enabled, AutoSupport proactively monitors appliance hardware components, automatically creates support tickets if necessary and forwards them to partners/support teams to expedite issue resolution. With AutoSupport, appliance issues get resolved even before the customer becomes aware of the issues.

Dear NetBackup Users,

 

I came across an awesome story about how one company used NetBackup AIR to save them in a disaster recovery scenario.  I was pretty impressed with how they used the technology, and more so by how much it saved them in a real DR situation.  Here's the super consolidated and simplified version (or watch the VIDEO):

Super Cool Industries (real names have been changed) had recently upgraded their backup solution to NetBackup 7.5, which features a slick replication technology called AIR (Auto Image Replication).  They immediately began using AIR to replicate backup images from one of their plants to another.  One day, a crazy ice storm knocked the power out at the first plant, which left both it, and another plant that relied on one of its servers, stranded.

Now, previous to this upgrade, their old...
