Introducing NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1: Increasing Visibility and Scaling for Growth

As the sheer volume of data continues to multiply, businesses and their IT departments are managing and protecting more information, applications and environments than ever before, with less time to do so. As if managing this data wasn’t complicated enough, companies also need to implement high performance solutions across a variety of different platforms that can readily scale with growth.

With that need in mind, Veritas is unveiling its latest NetBackup Appliance, release 2.7.1. This solution provides an extraordinary level of visibility during the backup and recovery process with Oracle databases, empowering administrators to independently complete their tasks while remaining aware of what’s happening elsewhere in the environment. The appliance release also provides double the amount of previously available capacity for the NetBackup 5330 Appliance, allowing companies to scale as their data grows.

Among the key features within NetBackup 2.7.1:

  • NetBackup Copilot for Oracle: The NetBackup Copilot feature helps database administrators (DBAs) and backup administrators better manage and protect Oracle databases in a coordinated way, alleviating existing frustrations between the two groups around a lack of visibility and control. Under existing processes, only one administrator can be in charge of backing up the data – leaving the other without insight into what’s being done, thus potentially creating a corporate governance risk. The two groups often have to email or call each other in order to stay in the loop, complicating and elongating the process.

But with NetBackup Copilot, Oracle DBAs have the opportunity to actually act as “co-pilots,” using the NetBackup Appliance as the landing pad for their data. DBAs are able to independently manage backups using native Oracle tools on their own schedules while having confidence that the data will progress through the appropriate tiers of storage based on pre-established storage lifecycle policies (SLPs). At the same time, the backup team can see the DBA performing the backup and know their pre-established SLPs will manage the storage, retention and movement of copies to disk, tape or cloud storage tiers.

For the first time, both backup and database administrators have full visibility during the entire backup and recovery processes, giving them the access and control they desire, while helping to ensure they meet their companies’ governance policies. Copilot also dramatically reduces backup times with NetBackup Accelerator for Oracle, a feature designed to achieve full backups in the time it takes to do incremental backups.

  • NetBackup 5330 Appliance: Veritas has made a plan to increase the appliance performance and capacity every 12 to 18 months.  NetBackup 5330 doubles the usable capacity and deduplication pool size to 458 TB – addressing the needs of customers who require both enterprise scalability, high performance, and resiliency.

 NetBackup 5330 maximizes storage capacity, reducing operating and capital expenditures.  Having greater density and thus delivering more capacity in less space, enables data centers to reduce the required amount of floor or rack space devoted to data protection. It’s also an integrated purpose-built backup appliance that is ENERGY STAR® certified, delivering greater power and cooling savings.

These enhancements build on top of the recently announced features of NetBackup 7.7.1, including Accelerator for NDMP and support for the new Amazon S3 Standard – IA cloud platform.

As Veritas moves toward becoming an independent company, we look forward to continuing to bring innovative products to market.

In todays world information is everything and know how to manage it is the key to using information. And I do agree businesses gain a lot from gathered information. But are regular citizens as satisfied as business? Doubt so. For example I personally hate when unknown number calls me and starts asking some questions related to their product. I just politely hang up but then start wondering how these guys got my phone number?

Also, once I had to buy argumentative essay on cyber security and there was mentioned that every time you go to a website they mine your system for cookies from other sites that you have visited. Every time you go into a store and buy something with a "bonus" card or "reward" card they are taking your purchase information and dumping into the data pool on your profile. There is too much intrusion into our lives. I can actually understand the government being concerned about terrorist activity a bit more than other people making a profit on our profiles. 
 
Three years ago it was revealed that the Apple iPhone keeps a list of all of your locations. Is this supposed to enhance your navigation, or is it designed to tell people where you go and what you do? I would imagine that with advances in WiFi the iPhone will be able to track where we went in the store and what we looked at. This level of intrusion is unprecedented and uncalled for. While you can turn off this feature in the iPhone, the feature is buried under seven layers of menus. I also wonder if it is eye candy in that they could theoretically collect the data without your knowledge. What assurance do we have that actually turning off the option means that Apple does not have some secret way of still tracking your movements? 
 
When will the intrusions stop? The internet and a connected society seemed great until this surreptitious collection of data occurred. Sooner or later people will find ways to use all of the collected data against others. The private companies collecting data will make the NSA collections look infantile by comparison. 
 
There is no reason for all of these cookies, reward cards, and phones that track our movements without permission.

I want to gather information about NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1 and for that, I am searching for tips online. I am glad I have found your post in which you have explained it in brief. I am searching for the winning numbers horoscope online. Can anyone here please help me in searching?
