  • Compare metrics across NetBackup Appliances to gain insights and optimize your NetBackup data protection environment.

NetBackup Virtual Appliances combine the ease of use of an appliance with the economies of a virtual environment. We are expanding the NetBackup virtual appliance family with new NetBackup CloudCatalyst and Master Server virtual appliances. Along with the NetBackup Virtual Appliances for Remote Office and Data Center you can now provide complete data protection from the remote office to cloud. Just download and install the NetBackup virtual appliances in your existing virtual environment and you are off and running. No need to add new infrastructure.

Need to quickly restore a file from a virtual machine? With new NetBackup Instant Access, you can quickly boot up a VMware vSphere® virtual machine on a NetBackup Appliance, browse for what you need, and get your data back.
