Symantec NetBackup

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.

Case Study: 7-Eleven Stores Download this Customer Case Study Now.

One of the things we wanted out of a disk-based backup system was a 'set it and forget it' type of product. The ExaGrid has more than lived up to our expectations. Each day, we quickly check the ExaGrid to ensure that everything ran smoothly and then double-check the amount of available disk space, and that's it. We're confident in the system and it's taken the hassle out of our backups.

Backing up to ExaGrid instead of tape saved us thousands of dollars in license and maintenance fees. We didn't need any additional licenses or maintenance to back up to disk because the ExaGrid simply looks like any other Windows server. That was a tremendous cost savings. There are many different things we can do with the ExaGrid/NetBackup combination that we couldn't do with tape. For example, we can now easily mix retention policies and be more flexible with our data than ever before.

Now, with the addition of Symantec and ExaGrid's joint OST capability, we have complete visibility into both our on-site and off-site copies of backups.  In the event we need to restore from a DR copy of a backup, we can seamlessly do so without any additional catalog operations as the ExaGrid appliance has informed NetBackup of the replicated copy, thus saving us time during critical restores.
