EMC NetWorker helps protect your applications and data by simplifying and centralizing backup and recovery operations. With NetWorker backup software, you get a common platform that supports a wide range of data protection options including backup to disk, replication management, continuous data protection, and deduplication across physical and virtual environments. NetWorker's versatility makes it the ideal backup software for a range of environments, from large data centers to remote offices. NetWorker Network Edition delivers high-volume, enterprise-level protection.
Sometimes, a large file server or database server may be configured as a storage node primarily for the backup of local data. Such a configuration prevents data from traversing the IP network, maximizing backup and recovery performance and reducing network congestion. Dedicated storage nodes provide this capability for SAN environments. A dedicated storage node does not provide service to network clients. Instead, a dedicated storage node is configured to back up its data directly to a SAN-attached storage device, such as a tape library. Multiple dedicated storage nodes can share a single storage device.
