ExaGrid Systems partners with Symantec to ensure compatibility with the latest features available in Symantec NetBackup. As a result, customers deploying ExaGrid disk backup along with their NetBackup software can dramatically reduce backup windows, get faster restores, and significantly ease backup management burdens.
ExaGrid's support of NetBackup OST allows both onsite and offsite backup data stored on the ExaGrid system to be managed from within the NetBackup console. The backup catalog is also kept up-to-date for the replicated offsite backups. This makes it easier for users to monitor the status of their onsite and offsite backups through NetBackup reporting, and also facilitates disaster recovery as backup data from the off-site ExaGrid system can be easily recovered directly from within the NetBackup console. This deep level of integration provides joint ExaGrid/NetBackup customers with a faster, more powerful, and more easily managed solution for disk backup with data deduplication.
