Protecting multi-hypervisor environments

NetBackup continues to deliver industry-leading scalability, performance, intelligent automation, and choice for protecting both virtual environments and the heterogeneous businesses.

As your virtual environments grow along with your business, eliminating manual steps with intelligent policy-based automation ensures new, changed, or moved VMs are protected and available around the clock.

  • Follow simple, intuitive setup for set-and-forget protection
  • Automate protection for VMware and Hyper-V hypervisor environments
