Symantec Unveils NetBackup 6.5

LAS VEGAS -- Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq:
SYMC) today announced the latest release of Veritas NetBackup, the market-leading enterprise data protection solution (1). Veritas NetBackup offers the industry's only platform to unite leading next-generation data protection offerings including tape, virtual tape libraries (VTLs), disk backup, data deduplication, continuous data protection (CDP), snapshots and replication - across all major vendors. To support this platform, NetBackup
6.5 introduces a host of new features and enhancements including native disk-based backup, data deduplication, deep integration with intelligent backup appliances and VTLs, heterogeneous snapshot management, granular recovery for critical applications and virtual machines, and innovative new licensing and pricing programs.

"Our goal is to maximize IT resources and reduce costs while improving performance. As part of our initiatives, we increasingly leverage disk in our backup environments and Veritas NetBackup provides us with a single, integrated platform for disk-based protection and data deduplication," said Brian Glowacki vice president, lead architect, JPMorgan Chase Global Storage Technology. "NetBackup 6.5 will help reduce data loss and speed recovery, while driving down operating costs and improving the accessibility of our data. With Symantec, our critical information is secure and available."

NetBackup Platform Delivers Next-Generation Data Protection Symantec has unified its enterprise data protection technologies into a single flagship offering - the NetBackup platform, a single solution for centralized, end-to-end management of heterogeneous data protection technologies. Many enterprises are interested in deploying next-generation data protection technologies, but have been reluctant to do so because of the complexity introduced by numerous disparate point products - each with their own agents, policies, schedulers, recovery processes, user interfaces and reporting tools. With the NetBackup platform, enterprises get the best of both worlds: unprecedented choice and flexibility to select best-of-breed technologies in replication, snapshots, CDP, data deduplication, encryption, virtual tape and traditional tape - either from Symantec or leading third-party storage vendors. In addition, the NetBackup platform provides a single tool to manage all these various vendors and technologies, which means a single approach to agents, policy management, recovery processes, security, backup reporting and the data catalog.
