“We absolutely wanted the backup appliance model because we can deploy it in less than a day. A traditional solution of separate backup software, server, and storage would take far longer and would not be practical for us.”Richard Morris, Solution Line Manager, Colt Technology Services
Choosing an Appliance
Choosing between a virtual and physical appliance for a remote office
Remote offices can range from an unattended server in the back room of a retail store to the branch office of an enterprise that supports hundreds of users. Each presents a unique set of challenges for a data management system.
Small Remote Offices
Small remote offices struggle to protect their data without a dedicated technical staff and IT resources. The data management system must be easy to install, maintain remotely, and efficiently transfer data to a central office for long-term retention. The NetBackup Virtual Appliance for Remote Offices is an ideal solution to meet these needs:
- Combined master and media server
- Fits into existing VMware virtual environments
- Maximum capacity 2 TB
- Features deduplication to minimize storage and transfer bandwidth requirements
- Optimal for locations with limited space
Large or Midsize Remote Offices
Large or midsize remote offices often need a data management system that can scale easily and support users with demanding applications such as Oracle databases. A compact configuration of the NetBackup 5240 Appliance offers the best performance and scalability to meet these needs:
- Master and/or media server
- Compact configuration with 4 TB, 14 TB, or 27 TB of storage
- Scales to 201 TB with additional storage shelves
- Features optimized deduplication
- Simplifies database backup with NetBackup Copilot for Oracle
"Our recovery scenarios are complex, but VRP simplified them. And I was impressed that Veritas was able to provide the technology support we needed so quickly and smoothly."Jose Newman, Disaster Recovery Program Architect at Oncor
“The IPCC environment is very large, covering four regions of nearly 11,000 seats. Veritas NetBackup Appliances help us minimize costs because they support source or target deduplication, and also let users choose inline or post deduplication. This flexibility maximizes IPCC backup storage capacity utilization, significantly reducing costs by eliminating the necessity of point products such as target-based deduplication appliances, tape, or a VTL (Virtual Tape Library).”Seung Man Yang, Customer Service Center Operation Team Senior Manager, KT
