Latest NetBackup Appliance Doubles Capacity and Turbocharges Performance

by October 27, 2015 0 comments

Veritas Technologies LLC debuted NetBackup Copilot, a revolutionary new way to protect Oracle databases. Available with the latest release of Veritas NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1, Copilot provides visibility into backup and recovery processes and is a robust extension to Veritas’ enterprise-class product portfolio. Today’s announcement continues to strengthen the company’s role with key partners like Oracle.

With NetBackup Copilot for Oracle, Veritas is significantly improving the backup and recovery of Oracle databases. For the first time ever, Oracle database administrators (DBAs) can maintain control over primary backup and recovery operations using native Oracle tools while secondary operations and policies are managed by NetBackup administrators. This allows Oracle DBAs to manage backup and recovery through tools like RMAN while NetBackup administrators oversee operations such as deduplication, replication and cataloging. In addition, the feature provides full visibility into and awareness of other administrator’s activities.

The NetBackup Copilot capability combines industry-leading NetBackup software and NetBackup Appliances to deliver breakthrough performance within a self-service operating model. NetBackup Copilot allows DBAs to independently manage backups on their own schedule, maintain visibility across all storage tiers, and recover from any available copy. Backup administrators can implement policies to manage the storage, retention and movement of database backup copies to disk, tape or cloud storage tiers. In addition, NetBackup Copilot dramatically reduces backup times with NetBackup Accelerator for Oracle, and increases database backup performance.

In addition to the NetBackup Copilot feature, the new NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1 software doubles the storage capacity of the NetBackup 5330 Appliance series. This appliance series will support an additional storage expansion shelf along with higher capacity disk drives to increase usable capacity and the deduplication pool size to 458TB. The expanded capacity will enable customers to further reduce OpEx and CapEx.

By using these new features, companies can minimize cost and complexity of their data protection environment while improving the quality of service by expanding into the cloud, embracing as-a-service modes of operation and having greater insight into their data protection operations.

Veritas NetBackup 7.7.1 is available now and NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1 will be generally available for customers in December, 2015, through the company’s channel partners, as well as directly through Veritas.
