Back up to disk and tape – NetVault Backup supports a wide range of targets for storing backups, including different types of disk-based devices, virtual tape libraries (VTLs) and shared virtual tape libraries (SVTLs), as well as third-party deduplication appliances, virtual and physical tape libraries, autoloaders, and tape drives.
Data deduplication – NetVault integrates seamlessly with the Dell DR family of disk backup appliances, enabling you to take full advantage of the appliance’s powerful deduplication, compression and replication capabilities. Shrink backup windows and improve restore times, use source-side deduplication to reduce network traffic and efficiently send copies of your backup data offsite for disaster recovery.
Virtualization support – Extend advanced data protection to VMware and Hyper-V environments. NetVault Backup gives you consistent, reliable, point-and-click backup and restore for virtual environments without requiring you to be an expert.
Application protection – Ensure availability of business-critical applications such as Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, MySQL, DB2, PostgreSQL, Domino, Informix, SAP and Sybase. No scripting is required to run “hot” backup and recovery jobs.
Network-attached storage support – Get advanced data protection for information stored on network-attached storage (NAS) devices, including those made by Dell, EMC, Hitachi, IBM, NetApp, and Sun. You can reduce traffic over the LAN and maximize performance by transferring backup data over NDMP. NetVault Backup supports many different storage topologies and configurations.
Bare metal recovery – Recover servers faster after a catastrophic failure. NetVault’s Bare Metal Recovery option simplifies and expedites the bare metal recovery process by automating most of the manual processes in rebuilding a server.
Enterprise-wide control – Define, manage and monitor jobs from remote locations of your choice. Plus, NetVault Backup’s automated features for global event notification and policy-based job management allow you to simplify your tasks across heterogeneous storage networks.
Strong security – Meet regulatory requirements without sacrificing backup windows or deduplication performance with support for CAST-128, AES-256 or CAST-256 encryption. Flexible job-level encryption lets you easily select which data to encrypt.
Flexible storage attachment – Avoid data transfers over the network by attaching a target storage device directly to a source server. With LAN-free backups, you can easily distribute the workload throughout the backup domain.
Dynamically-shared device – Share stand-alone and library-based tape drives among backup servers and source servers in SAN or shared-SCSI environments. This allows you to optimize workloads and maximize your equipment investments.
Simple, straight-forward licensing – License NetVault Backup by capacity or by component, giving you incredible flexibility to choose the model that best meets your needs — now and into the future.
