Today, at the Dell Storage Forum in Paris, we proudly unveiled NetVault Backup 9. This release is the culmination of months of hard work from our product management and engineering teams.
The latest version of Quest’s enterprise-class data protection software provides organizations of all sizes greater flexibility and performance in storage and disaster recovery. Let me tell you how:
Extended & Enhanced Platform Support
IT systems have evolved into a thriving yet complicated ecosystem. Virtualization can further complicate things, especially when it comes to backup and disaster recovery. Organizations need a backup and recovery solution that offers comprehensive protection that will meet their needs today and into the future.
NetVault Backup has always offered extensive support for many different platforms (physical and virtual), messaging applications, databases, processor architectures, and networked storage devices. In NetVault Backup 9, we’ve extended and enhanced this platform support. (And you may notice that NetVault Backup 9 benefits from some of the cross-pollination occurring between the NetVault and vRanger product teams.)
Greater Flexibility & Performance in Storage & DR
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.
With NetVault Backup 9, we are giving customers greater choice while improving the performance and utilization of their disk storage in addition to improved disaster recovery solutions.
It’s should be no surprise that many IT professionals are unhappy with their backup and recovery solution(s). In a recently survey of more than 200 IT professionals, we got a glimpse why:
NetVault Backup 9 offers a serious alternative. It offers simple, scalable, and reliable protection for most major operating systems (physical and virtual), processor architectures, applications and networked storage topologies (NAS and SAN). They’ll benefit from greater flexibility and performance in storage and disaster recovery.
NetVault Backup 9.0 will ship in December 2012. If you are a NetVault Backup or vRanger customer and are interested in becoming a beta tester, please let us know by filling out this short form: https://www.quest.com/
