Symantec Enhances NetBackup PureDisk

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced the latest release of its innovative Veritas NetBackup PureDisk product and unveiled the results of a survey outlining key issues facing organizations in protecting data outside the data center. The survey findings underscore the need to employ data protection strategies which leverage innovative solutions such as NetBackup PureDisk and highlight the need for effective data protection technology in the remote office. PureDisk delivers data deduplication technology that reduces the capacity of disk required for backup in addition to more efficiently using bandwidth that exists between the remote site and the central data center.

Survey Substantiates Need for New Microsoft and SQL Server Features in NetBackup PureDisk According to a recent survey commissioned by Symantec, respondents indicated that distribution of data occurs mainly via database data, such as Microsoft SQL Server. In addition, 25 percent of respondents said applications such as Microsoft Exchange are part of the data being backed up at the remote office. The latest release of NetBackup PureDisk provides Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server agents that deliver PureDisk storage and bandwidth efficiencies for two applications quite common at remote sites.
Additionally, PureDisk delivers its first integration point with NetBackup.
Users can now export PureDisk backup data to tape as well as direct recovery from tape using NetBackup, simplifying disaster recovery and the long-term
management of backup data.

The latest release of NetBackup PureDisk is immediately available through Symantec's certified value-added resellers and direct sales force.
