NetBackup Appliances: CSX Technology

CSX Technology Eases Backup Management with Symantec NetBackup Appliances
"By achieving up to 90 percent deduplication rates with Symantec NetBackup 7 software and Symantec NetBackup 5000 appliances, we project we'll save more than $400,000 over the next three years on backup hardware and media."
–Albert Chin, Network Engineer, PerkinElmer, Inc.
"Our deduplication rate for backups is around 40 percent on average. Being able to pack more data onto the appliances is a huge benefit."
"Restores from the NetBackup appliances are 14-fold faster compared with tape, and have been 100 percent successful."
–Jesse Determann, Director - Distributed Architecture, Continuum Health Partners, Inc.
"Symantec's recent release of the NetBackup 5220 Appliance truly provides a 'backup in a box' approach to data protection. DLT recently test drove Symantec's Netbackup 5220 Appliance and had remarkable results. Not only did the appliance receive high marks for ease of use, but the NetBackup software product and startup of the actual appliance made the deduplication rates and backup speeds the top in industry standards."
–Rick Marcotte, President and CEO, DLT Solutions
"We only wanted to use deduplication and a virtual tape solution when the technologies were integrated with NetBackup; otherwise it simply means we have yet more hardware to manage. With the NetBackup 5000 Series appliances, that straightforward, turn-key integration has arrived."
– Terry Fenn, Implementation Design Manager, Xchanging
"By standardizing on Symantec across the storage infrastructure, the PPA is able to provide hundreds of thousands of citizens across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with fast and reliable pension services. The PPA itself also benefits from a significantly lower total cost of ownership, coupled with reduced capital and operational expenditure."
