Is your data protection solution vCloud Director AWARE? The introduction of VMware's vCloud Director included a new IaaS offering that layers on top of the existing vSphere product suite. This means yet additional challenges for backup and recovery professionals to work around.

Symantec experts will be addressing this topic on an On Air Google+ Hangout on Wednesday, August 7th.

Tune in to this Bonus Session of our Google+ Hangout Virtual Vision series to learn more about backup and recovery challenges with vCloud Director.

As you may already know, NetBackup Accelerator does not currently support backup to tape. It has to go to OptimizedSynthetic-capable storage units such as NetBackup PureDisk, Cloud storage plug-ins, and qualified OpenStorage devices. 

The NetBackup Accelerator framework however, doesn't extend to duplication, so you can duplicate the image to tape, either manually or automatically via Storage Lifecycle Policy. No extra configuration is necessary and data can be restored from either original copy or duplicate copy as per normal as long as they have not expired.

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!
