NetBackup at VMworld 2015

Level 3


Pop Quiz:  Which of the following statements is true about NetBackup?

  1. NetBackup is the only backup product to win Best of VMworld four times in the Data Protection and Business Continuity category, more than any other product in its category.
  2. NetBackup was the only leading backup product in the industry to support VMware vSphere 6 on the same day that it was released.
  3. NetBackup won in a head-to-head performance benchmark against three other popular VMware backup products in a simulated VMware environment of 1000 virtual machines.
  4. All of the above.

Of course the answer is (4). Ever since NetBackup introduced its V-Ray technology in 2007, allowing VMware disk images to be backed up without agents while still allowing file- and object-level restores from within the VM, NetBackup has continually raised the bar for excellence in VMware data protection. Built for the enterprise where thousands of virtual machines are the norm, we focus on the kinds of problems that are unique to these environments.

If you’re at VMworld 2015 this week, please stop by and say hello. This is the first conference where you will see the Veritas name in lights, side-by-side with Symantec. We can share with you some of the latest improvements we have made to NetBackup that further reinforce our capabilities for large-scale vSphere deployments, such as:

  • Comprehensive integration with VMware, including the VMware API for Data Protection (VADP), vCloud Suite, and now VMware Virtual Volumes in NetBackup 7.7

  • Unmatched scalability for the world’s largest VMware environments, now proven in a 3rd party benchmark

  • Self-service access for VMware administrators with a vSphere console plug-in, now available from within the vSphere web client in NetBackup 7.7

  • Instantly recover up to 10 virtual machines simultaneously, now actionable from the vSphere console in NetBackup 7.7

At the booth we will be giving away the first-ever Veritas swag and hosting mini-theater presentations showcasing the latest innovations from Veritas and Symantec. In addition, we will be presenting three breakout sessions, all relating to VMware backup and recovery. Don’t miss them:
