The Public Pension Agency organization in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wanted a turnkey approach to blending NetBackup with deduplication. NetBackup 5200 backup appliances provide up to 99 percent rates of deduplication, efficient, storage-optimized data protection, and significantly reduced total cost of ownership. This approach enabled the PPA to reduce the backup window from six hours to 30 minutes. Storage Foundation is driving down costs further: delivering highly available, scalable, non-disruptive storage, server, and application management.
