NetVault Backup 9

Enterprise-class backup & recovery unleashed

It’s now easier than ever to simplify data protection while protecting critical applications in physical and virtual environments. The latest version of NetVault Backup, the enterprise-class data protection software solution from Dell, extends and enhances its platform support, and gives organizations of all sizes greater flexibility and performance in storage and disaster recovery.

Extended and enhanced platform support

NetVault Backup has always offered extensive support for many different platforms (physical and virtual), messaging applications, databases, processor architectures, and networked storage topologies. In NetVault Backup 9, we’ve extended support to Windows Server 2012, Novell OES 11, Ubuntu 11 & 12, and Microsoft SQL Server 2012. And we’ve enhanced protection for VMware, Hyper-V, MySQL and Oracle.

Greater flexibility and performance in storage and disaster recovery

Organizations are trying to manage more data than ever before. And their customers and employees have become less and less tolerant of data loss and service interruptions. As a result, many organizations are turning to disk-based backup, deduplication, and replication to save on storage costs, reduce recovery times and quickly restore operations in the event of a disaster.

NetVault Backup 9 gives customers greater flexibility and improved performance in storage and disaster recovery with support for the following storage technologies

  • Software-based deduplication : With the latest release of NetVault SmartDisk 2.0, customers can replicate and catalog deduplicated data from a primary SmartDisk instance to a secondary SmartDisk target. Since only unique bytes are sent over the wire, replication is super-efficient. In the event of a disaster, data can be recovered from disk faster and with more reliability.
  • Hardware-based deduplication : NetVault Backup 9 has been tested and certified to work with Dell deduplication appliances, beginning with the DR4000. Through the use of innovative Dell deduplication and compression technology, the DR4000 can help NetVault customers achieve a data-reduction level up to 15:1. This reduction in data means more backup data can be retained longer and in the same footprint.NetVault Backup 9 will also offer plug-and-play integration with EMC’s Data Domain “DD Boost” software. DD Boost significantly increases performance by distributing parts of the deduplication process to the NetVault client. You’ll benefit from accelerated backup performance, enhanced replication control, and simplified administration.
  • Tape library management: NetVault Backup 9 also adds support for Oracle ACSLS Managed Virtual Libraries, which allows organizations to share tape libraries securely with other applications. This helps to centralize the management of tape libraries for easier administration, increased utilization, and a lower total cost of ownership.
