In case anyone missed the news, with the recent release of NetBackup 7.5.0.6, one of the new features included was certified backup support for SAP HANA. 

We've done a lot to promote this functionality with webcasts, Google+ Hangouts and collateral.  If anyone has missed anything, here are the important links to all the information around of HANA integration, including our newest technical whitepaper:

My how things change in only 3 months since I wrote “Are we witnessing the transformation from Target to Integrated PBBAs?” The local Blockbuster was closing down, and now there is no evidence of its existence. The strip mall repainted the blue and yellow interior and exterior to match the rest of the mall, and is now awaiting the new tenant. 

Within the PBBA market, there have been dramatic changes in the last three months as well. IDC reported their Q1 2013 results, Worldwide Purpose-Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) Market Experiences Robust Growth in First Quarter of 2013. Symantec continues to lead the industry with 149.3% year-over-year growth, and outpaced both the industry (16.5%) and its competitors (EMC 8.4% and Quantum 2.5%). One surprising...

Have you ever visited the Common Topics page for NetBackup Enterprise Server?  (I hope you have - its URL is in the signature of every reply I've left on the NetBackup forum!)  If you HAVEN'T, go ahead and click on this link right now...don't worry; I'll still be here when you get back:

Symantec is excited to announce that our certified integration with SAP HANA will be available to our customers Monday,June 24th as this is the official release date for the new NetBackup 7.5.0.6!

SAP HANA is a high performance In-Memory Database (IMDB) that takes Business Intelligence and Analytics to a whole new level.  Companies can do real-time analytics on huge amounts of data with lightning speed.  What used to take weeks to church through so much information has been whittled down to minutes.  But with so much data, how do you back it up?

NetBackup has become the first vendor to certify with SAP HANA’s BACKINT process.  This means that SAP HANA Studio which manages the HANA database can stream backups live to NetBackup.  There are many benefits to this method over the dump-to-disk method all other vendors must do.  Here are some important points to know:

  • Certified is different than “supported”. ...

NetBackup Appliances have been enjoying great success. I recently wrote about the tremendous growth of NetBackup Appliances, “Are we witnessing the transformation from Target to Integrated PBBAs?” by examining the purpose-built backup appliance market data as reported by IDC. 

While it is great to see market data highlighting our success, we need to peel away the layers and understand what is truly driving this growth. It is our Customers! NetBackup Appliances address the challenges organizations have to deal with today, and need to be prepared for in the future. 

Let’s look at how four (4) customers who are using NetBackup Appliance to solve their challenges; Arsys, CSX, PostFinance, and State of Michigan. The customer stories are detailed n...
