Deduplication Customer Testimonials
“We saw NetBackup 7 as the ideal vehicle to unify the storage infrastructure and management—bringing high availability, deduplication, and virtualization management into a single management console.”
–Martin Hughes, Senior Network Engineer, Herefordshire Council
“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.
“The financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 hit us hard just like everybody else, and we deter¬mined that it was necessary to find products that help our customers do more with less,” says Klein. “NetBackup 7 is helping our cus¬tomers to stop buying storage, reduce head¬count, and optimize their environment in many ways. And we see the product differen¬tiating us from competitors like CommVault or some of the EMC offerings. Our customers are clamoring for this technology.”
–Kurt Klein , President and CEO, CMT
“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
“I’d rather optimize what I have in place. Many competitive products require me to buy an expensive piece of hardware for deduplication, but with Backup Exec I already have it built-in. It’s a no-brainer for me.”
–Joe LaGrosse, Director of IT, Pepperweed Consulting
“With deduplication running within Backup Exec 2010, we’ve trimmed our backup times from up to eight hours down to as few as two hours per night”
–Sumeet Lakhaney, Director of IT, Fourth Wall Restaurants
“We don’t track network traffic regularly, but there’s no question we would have bandwidth issues without the deduplication option, which is reducing the backup traffic across our WAN by nearly 90 percent.”
–Bryce White, Director of Information Technology, Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc.
