Symantec introduces new approach for modernising backup and recovery

Drives out 80% of the operating costs, claims Symantec

By CBR Staff Writer

Security software firm Symantec has introduced a new approach for modernising backup and recovery, enabling 100 times faster backup, eases management and simplifies recovery if a disaster occurs.

The key components to Symantec’s new approach to data protection are the NetBackup 7.5 and Backup Exec 2012 software and cloud offerings.

Symantec says that its new strategy eliminates 80% of the operating cost of backup by delivering an integrated platform that replaces multiple solutions typically used in backup today and can achieve 100 times faster backup with NetBackup 7.5, compared to traditional approaches.

With the new backup search capabilities in NetBackup, IT can separate out what is relevant to legal or compliance investigations while keeping the rest of the backup infrastructure running on a typical 30-60-90 day backup cycle.

Symantec NetBackup technology enables organisations to modernise their disaster recovery strategies and stop the practice of shipping tapes by truck.

Symantec NetBackup Auto Image Replication (AIR) allows customers to eliminate volumes of physical assets and prioritise files that can be sent over the network, while reducing the chance for human error.

In addition, the new strategy reduces operating costs around virtualisation with patent pending Symantec V-Ray technology that enables organisations to have deeper visibility into their VMware and Hyper-V machines for virtual backups with a single product.

Backup Exec simplies the user interface, utilises insights from millions of users, policies and licensing to eliminate backup management complexity.

Symantec Information Management Group senior vice-president Deepak Mohan said, today, Symantec unveils a radical new plan to modernise data protection that will drive out 80% of the operating costs associated with backup over the next five years.

"Symantec is announcing a new set of solutions that address the problems in backup – from the most complex of enterprise data centres requiring a true tiered-recovery strategy to the smallest business that needs the confidence that they can easily recover their data," said Mohan.
