Symantec Solutions for Nirvanix

Make using the cloud for backup and recovery as easy as managing on-premise storage, while lowering costs, with Symantec solutions for Nirvanix.

Reduce Complexity and Cost

For most businesses, data continues to grow by about 50 percent annually. The impact of spending more every year on storage, and on protecting and managing information has often pushed IT departments to their limits. Combined with longer mandated retention periods, today’s information management challenges are forcing IT staff, from the vice president to the systems administrator, to reduce complexity and cost without putting their organization’s infrastructure, information, and intellectual property at risk.

Symantec Solutions for Nirvanix

Nirvanix’s fully managed storage service is more economical than the total cost of on-premise storage and can be used as part of a tiered storage strategy or for disaster recovery. Two cloud storage connectors from Symantec allow you to integrate with the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network for backup and recovery as reliably and easily as if you are managing on-premise storage:
NetBackup and Backup Exec further reduce storage consumption and network transportation costs with compression and patent-pending single pass backup technology. Additional operating efficiencies and simple administration is achieved by using the existing NetBackup and Backup Exec consoles for the management and reporting of both on-premise and off-site information.
NetBackup Cloud Storage for Nirvanix delivers a reliable and simple way to drive down information management costs. The connector, along with the Symantec OpenStorage API enables integration between NetBackup and the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network (SDN) to deliver an automated and policy-based backup and recovery solution.
