In the Symantec official blog “A Vision for Converged Backup Infrastructure” published late last year, Matt Cain announced the upcoming availability of our next generation converged backup platform, the NetBackup 5330 appliance. The 5330 is an integrated media server and storage system designed to deliver high performance, scalable capacity, and resiliency to address the most aggressive backup and recovery objectives in the data center. As an integrated backup appliance, it addresses the OpEx and CapEx challenges organizations face today while laying the groundwork for a modernized data center.
In preparation for this event, NetBackup 7.6.1 was released earlier this month to supply the necessary enhancements to make this platform really sing. In particular, our intelligent deduplication technology (MSDP) has been turbo-charged to support the larger dedupe pools that will now be possible with 229TB of raw 5330 capacity. While we were at it, we hardened our MSDP catalog to heal itself, and added a number of other enhancements that might come in handy even if you don’t have a NetBackup appliance. The nitty-gritty details can be found in the 7.6.1 Release Notes, but if you’re just curious here are the highlights:
New in NetBackup 7.6.1
Intelligent Deduplication (MSDP)
Activity Monitor Usability
