The Technical Services team for Backup and Recovery have produced a number of documents we call "Blueprints".

These Blueprints are designed to show backup and recovery challenges around specific technologies or functions and how NetBackup solves these challenges.

Each Blueprint consists of:

  • Pain Points: What challenges customers face
  • Whiteboard: Shows how NetBackup solves the customer challenges
  • Recommended Configuration: Shows recommended installation
  • Do’s: Gives detailed configurations suggested by Symantec
  • Don'ts: What configurations & pitfalls customers should avoid
  • Advantages: Summarizes the NetBackup advantages

NetBackup Accelerator facilitates intelligent, streamlined backups to disk by increasing the speed of full backups. The increase in speed is made possible by change detection techniques on the client. The client uses the change detection techniques and the client's current file system to identify changes that occurred since the last backup. The client sends the changed data to the media server in a more efficient backup stream. The media server combines the changed data with the rest of the client's data that is stored in previous backups to create a new full backup image without needing to transfer all the client data.

NetBackup Accelerator addresses the issues of increasing data volumes requiring protection and shrinking windows available to backup those data volumes. It provides a unique solution to the problem by identifying reading and transferring only changed files or blocks. NetBackup Accelerator significantly reduces the amount of resource (time, network, and storage) that a full backup requires. Using NetBackup Accelerator, a very large file system can be fully backed up in the amount of time previously taken by an incremental backup.

Note: NetBackup Accelerator requires storage that supports Optimized Synthetic Backup.

Using NetBackup Accelerator benefits customers by providing:

  • Significantly faster backups
  • Reduced CPU overhead on the client
  • Reduced utilization of network resources
  • Reduced utilization of storage resources
  • Faster recovery (restores) from a single source rather than multiple backups
