by July 8, 2015 0 comments

Veritas, Symantec’s information management business, announced the latest release of its enterprise-class data protection solution, Veritas NetBackup 7.7. Among its new capabilities, the solution includes features that expand the effectiveness of backup and recovery operations that utilize cloud storage services, adding support for new cloud providers and increasing performance by up to thirty times.

This latest release enhances the performance and interoperability of backups directed to cloud storage services such as those offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), Verizon, and Cloudian. NetBackup 7.7 also introduces integration with VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes, Microsoft Hyper-V, NetApp clustered Data ONTAP (cDOT), and Microsoft SQL Server, and delivers enhanced self-service capabilities that allow both IT and non-IT users to independently manage and control backup and recovery activities using intuitive interfaces combined with native tools.

The new cloud connector introduced in NetBackup 7.7, designed on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), is optimized to significantly improve backup and restore times for Amazon S3-compatible cloud storage targets. The new connector takes advantage of multi-streaming and other techniques to fully utilize network bandwidth, significantly reducing backup and recovery times when compared to previous releases. In addition, NetBackup 7.7 supports cloud gateways from NetApp and AWS using a tiered approach to replicate backup data to cloud storage.

NetBackup’s innovative Auto Image Replication (AIR) feature is also integrated with cloud services – enabling businesses to efficiently replicate catalog and backup data in a cloud environment, while efficiently preserving the de-duplicated state of backups. New Intelligent Policies for Microsoft Hyper-V and Microsoft SQL Server help enterprise IT organizations scale faster, increase flexibility, and provide the appropriate controls to the right people.

Veritas NetBackup 7.7 converged platform simplifies infrastructure management and has advanced automated processes and controls to protect complex physical and virtual environments.

Veritas NetBackup 7.7 is available now through the company’s channel partners, as well as directly through Veritas.
