Symantec has announced the latest version of its NetBackup solution, bringing new functionality to protect the largest scale VMware-based environments as enterprises move to a software-defined data centre architecture.
NetBackup 7.6 is designed for enterprise level scale, which Symantec says can accommodate hundreds of thousands of virtual machines and petabytes of data while giving customers 400x faster virtual machine recovery than a standard restore.
The solution’s NetBackup Instant Recovery for VMware environment powers on virtual machines from within NetBackup, and NetBackup Accelerator leverages integration with VMware Changed Block Tracking.
It also features multi-tenant hosting options for channel partners and managed service providers, and automated disaster recovery from a physical to a cloud platform.
“As organisations continue to realise the benefits of the software-defined data centre, we are pleased to work with Symantec to empower customers to protect their IT infrastructure,” said Sanjay Katyal, Vice President, Global Alliances & OEMs. “VMware Symantec’s data centre, with NetBackup 7.6 and VMware vCloud Suite, is a strong example of a transformative software-defined data centre.”
