This ESG Lab review documents hands-on testing of the Symantec NetBackup 5230 appliance, a backup solution for physical and virtual environments. Testing focused on getting started with the appliance and data protection efficiency.
Evaluate virtual backup software to end the arguing between virtual and backup admins
In this white paper, ESG Senior Analyst Jason Buffington validates the claim that NetBackup 7.5 can perform backups up to 100x faster than traditional backups through testing and audits.
You cannot effectively manage, recover, dedupe or protect what you can’t see. NetBackup with V-Ray breaks down virtual vs. physical silos and delivers simple, yet comprehensive backup and recovery.
Hear existing customers discuss how NetBackup, NetBackup Appliances, and Backup Exec are helping them drive down backup costs and drive out complexity in this white paper from Cascade Insights.
With cost pressures and complexity frustrating many backup teams, a platform approach across physical and virtual environments is becoming the new normal, especially as virtual workloads become mission-critical in nature. Hear existing customers, interviewed by Cascade Insights, discuss how Symantec delivers as a continuing leader in the backup space, with solution innovation that exceeds their emerging needs.
This paper discusses several different backup and recovery mechanisms including source deduplication, target deduplication, virtualization-aware backup, near-CDP, and CDP.
This paper provides a structured approach to assessing the advantages of the appliance model.
VMware’s vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) has revolutionized virtual machine protection, however, to fully realize these capabilities you need the proper tools. Symantec and Cisco have teamed up to show how using Symantec NetBackup 7’s native integration with the vStorage API and Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) architecture can protect terabytes of virtual machine data.
