Symantec releases new NetBackup

Disk-based protection gets 6.5-ier

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Symantec today released Veritas NetBackup 6.5, the company's latest data protection software and cornerstone of its football (*cough* soccer)-themed Storage United business initiative.

We've already covered the software's new widgets and what-nots back when it was announced at the Symantec Vision conference in June (which you can take take a peek at), but here's a little refresher:

Shiny new features include native disk-based backup, data replication, integration with intelligent disk appliances and virtual tape libraries and heterogeneous snapshot management. NetBackup 6.5 also includes file-level and image level-recovery recovery for VMware environments, along with deduplication for VMware backups.

Microsoft SharePoint systems will get the database and document-level recovery from the same backup, removing the need for multiple backups on the same system. Microsoft Exchange receives an instant recovery feature, which allows admins to recover from a disk-based snapshot.

NetBackup 6.5 also includes a new SAN client that drives backup and recovery jobs, which Symantec claims will dramatically reduce the time required by traditional LAN backup.

Symantec has introduced a capacity-based pricing option for 6.5, giving customers the choice of licensing the software on a capacity-based model or using their traditional per-server model. ®
