NetApp, Symantec Team on Archiving

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) today announced integration of its archive and compliance solution with Symantec Enterprise Vault™ 8.0. Together, NetApp and Symantec enable customers to maximize storage efficiency and optimize protection of enterprise archived data to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of archive environments by up to 60%.

Symantec and NetApp collaborated extensively to develop a joint archive solution so customers can take advantage of the following key capabilities:

Industry-leading deduplication—Enterprise Vault has optimized its support of NetApp® deduplication. The combination of NetApp deduplication with Symantec Optimized Single Instance Storage gives customers a powerful solution to eliminate redundant data and dramatically reduce storage costs.

Improved protection—Joint customers can take advantage of NetApp’s unique cascading Snapshot™ approach for end-to-end replication across the entire archive application stack. Customers can now increase application availability, dramatically reduce backup downtime, and significantly improve recovery times of archive applications and content.

Simplified management—NetApp’s unified architecture enables customers to radically simplify their archive storage infrastructure with one management platform to reduce overhead and improve scalability and flexibility. Together with Symantec, NetApp is making critical archives more affordable and easier to manage.
