“Given the current landscape in which admins are constantly being asked to do more with less, the ability to implement backup and recovery solutions that lower costs and reduce complexity is of the utmost importance,” said Walter Angerer, senior vice president and general manager of data protection with Quest.
“NetVault Backup enables users to leverage their existing storage investments while delivering the speed, scalability, and ease of use they need to simplify cross-platform data protection and minimize business risk in the process,“ added Angerer.
NetVault Backup 8.6 will deliver increased speed and platform support improving enterprise backups and recovery. Some of the other features include:
- Increased speed of data restoration from incremental backups. Internal test results indicate that data restores with NetVault Backup are now 50 percent faster on average.
- Significant scalability enhancements, as customers now have virtually no limit to the number of files they can process in a single backup job.
- The first backup solution to support block-level, incremental backup for BlueArc“™s high-performance NAS systems, delivering users significant improvements in performance and scalability.
NetVault Smartdisk 1.5 supports backups from network-attached storage appliances. Additionally when used with NetVault Backup, the solution can send backup data from a NAS source to a SmartDisk storage repository, meaning customers can now get enterprise-wide deduplication for all of their protected systems.
