Symantec weighs in with low-risk, big-data appliance
Symantec has announced the availability of the NetBackup 5220 backup device, an all-in-one scalable appliance for organisations to protect information in physical or virtual environments.
“The Symantec NetBackup 5220 is an all-in-one, scalable backup appliance for midsized to enterprise organisations,” says Gordon Love, Symantec’s regional director for Africa. “These innovative solutions include Symantec’s content-aware deduplication, which can decrease backup storage up to 50 times and bandwidth consumption up to 99 percent, eliminating backup window problems and enabling cost-effective replication of data to other sites for business continuity.”
For many customers, the challenges with protecting virtual and physical servers have been heightened by the proliferation of different backup solutions in a single environment and the integration problems between the hardware and software. Symantec’s backup appliances deliver an end-to-end integrated backup device for servers, storage, and software.
“While many solutions require the IT team to integrate multiple solutions for tape, disk, dedupe, physical, virtual snapshots and backup, Symantec NetBackup appliances are typically installed in less than 30 minutes and deliver integrated hardware, software and dedupe storage, providing customers with simplicity and performance from one vendor. The NetBackup 5220 appliance is a modern approach to backup,” continued Love.
Earlier this year, Symantec announced its new approach to delivering better backup to its customers. The company introduced groundbreaking new features to replace outdated and complicated approaches. Beyond features, Symantec is changing the market with technologies like this purpose-built appliance that unites physical and virtual backup, tackles data growth and eliminates complexity. Naturally the marriage of the purpose-built device and the NetBackup software leads to simplicity and standards, supported by a single vendor and Symantec’s strong partner community.
