NetBackup allows customers the freedom of choice for how they want to leverage the cloud for data protection. When it comes to storing data in the cloud, NetBackup can connect to Amazon S3 via cloud connector. In addition, the Amazon Storage Gateway can be presented to NetBackup as a disk target, which allows access to either S3 or Amazon Glacier. Through this approach, customers can dramatically lower storage costs without sacrificing unified management of their information or by creating additional silos.
In some cases, enterprise customers are using Amazon EC2 for hosted workloads, which also need to be backed up. In this scenario, customers can deploy a NetBackup media server in EC2 that can protect all their cloud-based workloads. Data can be stored within EC2 for local access and quick restores, but then moved back to on-premises and to less expensive cloud storage tiers like S3 or Glacier.
For added disaster recovery readiness, the management of the NetBackup environment (master server) can also be located in the cloud, reducing DR costs and eliminating the need to maintain a secondary DR site. Whatever your unique situation, NetBackup provides your enterprise the heterogeneous, scalable, backup and recovery options you need.
