NetVault: Backup DataCenter Edition is the ideal backup and restores solution for midsize heterogeneous UNIX, Windows NT/2000, Mac OS X, Linux and NetWare environments. A modular architecture allows NetVault: Backup DataCenter Edition to combine with BakBone's plugin modules for enhanced features such as application data protection, disaster recovery, NDMP and open file protection.
The policy management tools allow job templates to be created and easily applied to a single client or an entire group of clients simultaneously. Once defined, policy-based administration allows you to monitor, manage and edit a group of jobs as a single entity.
User level access
The user level access feature allows users to be defined with a specific set of privileges on an individual or group basis. User level access is ideal for extending a subset of NetVault's features to other members of the IT staff as well as end users.
The improved reporting feature enables the administrator to schedule reports on many aspects of NetVault's operation with several output types available. In addition, a powerful report-editing tool has been provided to allow user-defined reports to be created.
Notification tool provides the ability to notify a user of a NetVault: Backup event, improving NetVault's ability to support automated, lights out operations. This feature promotes awareness and reduces potential data loss by providing an early warning system.
To meet your ever growing business needs, NetVault: Backup DataCenter Edition is a scalable solution that easily upgrades to NetVault: Backup Enterprise Edition.
To ease administration and reduce training requirements, NetVault's easy-to-use graphic user interface presents the same look and feel on all supported Windows and UNIX operating platforms.
Large capacity libraries and high speed tape devices are easily shared within a domain. With DirecSAN support you can share media and libraries between multiple nodes to distribute backup operations while increasing data throughput and reducing network load.
Virtual Disk Libraries (VDL)
Backups can easily be sent directly to a local hard drive or SAN attached disk subsystem for improved performance during backup and recovery. VDL staging can minimize the impact on your network and act as a buffer, to ensure device streaming, when it's time to copy staged data to tape.
NetVault's advanced architecture speeds backups directly from servers and clients to tape drives across a SAN. Share all of your library tape drives among multiple backup servers and clients. NetVault: Backup also allows LAN-free backups for non-SAN environments.
TurboVault is a performance enhancement typically only found in enterprise level solutions and provides the user with the ability to allocate the amount of memory shared between the CPU and NetVault: Backup according to available memory and native speed of the backup tape device.
Consolidated file system backup
NetVault's consolidated file system backup feature uses incremental backups to create a full backup and index. This user-defined feature allows you to take any number of incremental backups and build a full file system backup based upon the last incremental and last consolidated backup.
