What was your reaction when you got your first phone call on a smartphone? If you’re like me, it was something like:
"Oh yeah, this makes sense. The caller’s name appears on the screen. My music stops playing. With one click, I can respond with a text message. That’s how a phone should work.”
If you’re like my colleague Joel Martins, your reaction was:
“Can I manage a NetBackup restore like this?” No joke.
Joel runs the development group for NetBackup. He’s as "NetBackup" as it gets – he started as a green engineer in the NetBackup 3.2 days and he even named his first child bprestore (joke…). More importantly, Joel was the first person to realize that we could apply the lessons of the iPhone-age to data protection.
Backup is the backbone of any datacenter – it maintains data integrity so that the application infrastructure can do its job. We believe the best way to ensure data integrity is to make backup intuitive. The more intuitive the tool, the more likely customers will successfully protect their data.
If the mantra of NetBackup today is, “Industry-leading performance and flexibility”, we aim to make it, “Simplicity without sacrifice” in the next few years. This is not a retreat from providing best-in-class performance – part of simplicity is to “just work” in the largest datacenters in the world.
Simplicity starts with NetBackup 7.6, which we released this past January. Let me walk through the goals driving “simplicity without sacrifice” and talk about how NetBackup 7.6 advances our customers’ goals:

Stay tuned for more! Coming releases will continue our drive towards simplicity without sacrifice.
