Web-based apps require new protection.

Protect data today and tomorrow.

Traditional relational databases (RDBMS) were designed for complex ERP applications, but most organisations have moved to web-based applications that require new management and protection techniques. To meet these enterprise demands, Open Source databases have emerged as a viable alternative already used by 95 percent of IT organisations for their mission-critical applications.

Veritas NetBackup provides data protection for Open Source workloads with a future-proof data protection strategy that eliminates extra steps and reduces resources.


With NetBackup 8.2 and MySQL agent, you can:

Lower costs

Simplify backups

Improve RPO

  • Eliminating unnecessary space, management and procedures can lower your storage costs by 50 percent. 

  • NetBackup + MySQL agent integration delivers strategic, next-generation data protection. 

  • Reduce management resources by one-third by simplifying backups. 

  • NetBackup’s agentless framework replaces the previous lengthy process of backing up a database, dumping backup files into intermediate storage, and then sweeping them into backup storage. 

  • Eliminating multiple methods and third-party tools can improve RPO/RTO by 50 percent. 

  • NetBackup uses an efficient framework that catalogues and indexes data for fast retrieval of point-in-time historical data.
