Increase operational efficiency

Meet stringent service level objectives with reduced planned and unplanned downtime

Operational availability becomes a major concern as the volume of data that an enterprise depends on grows toward the petabyte scale. Service level objectives demand that both planned and unplanned downtime be minimised. The NetBackup Appliance High Availability (HA) solution provides the reliability needed to meet the most stringent service level objectives for large data sets. Compared to a non-HA configuration, Appliance HA achieves:

  • 10x increase in uptime per year
  • 80% improvement in system through-put
  • Reduced operational costs

Streamline database protection

Protect databases and workloads where no agent or back-up API exists

A common procedure to back up databases is the “dump and sweep” method in which the database is “dumped” to an intermediate storage location and is then “swept” into the back-up deduplication pool. NetBackup Universal Share eliminates he intermediate step and allows the dump to go directly into the NetBackup appliance deduplicated storage.

  • Supports all commercial/open source databases and workloads
  • Reduce costs by eliminating intermediate storage

Simplify collaboration between Oracle database and back-up administrators

Database and back-up admins depend on different tools to protect databases, resulting in inefficiencies that prevent them from understanding the complete picture. Veritas NetBackup for Copilot for Oracle creates an optimised solution for the protection of Oracle databases.

  • Better co-ordinate workflows between database and backup teams
  • Increase savings with improved storage utilisation and reduced network bandwidth

Simplicity, manageability and performance
