Backup & Recovery

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

All email solutions used by modern businesses are based upon a server infrastructure hosting an email software system. Whether hosted locally on physical or virtualized servers, hosted by a partner, or hosted in the cloud, these email software systems support the incredible amount of email transmissions that happen every day, and can be implemented in many different sizes and configurations. One of the most common and popular email systems used in the industry today is Microsoft Exchange.

Because Microsoft Exchange plays such a critical role in the ability for organizations to conduct day-to-day business, it’s equally critical that companies employ protection solutions that enable them to quickly and easily recover their Exchange system should a data loss or disaster event occur.

Organizations continue to experience an increase in data growth year over year. With this, the IT environment consisting of storage and backup infrastructure must be scalable and robust to ensure effective data protection strategies. Additional workloads and applications result in lower RPO and RTO objectives.

Symantec NetBackup has provided deep integration with the Microsoft Exchange application to provide entire application protection. There is specific functionality called Granular Restore Technology (GRT) that allows specific items such as mail messages, contacts, calendars, etc. to be restored.
