Enhanced administrator productivity
NetVault: Backup Disk to Disk allows the administrator to freely design any number of customized virtual libraries - each with its own specific number of tape drives, tape slots, and tape sizes to precisely fit the situation at hand. NetVault: Backup Disk to Disk sorts multiple data streams from multiple clients from the LAN, concurrently into single, complete data streams on disk. In turn, these data streams can be easily and smoothly migrated or duplicated to real tape for offsite storage, ensuring a fast restore from either tape or disk.
While NetVault: Backup Disk to Disk can stand on its own as a backup solution, when coupled with a real tape library and NetVault: Backup and its value added plug-ins, the potential of NetVault: Backup Disk to Disk is astounding. Backup sets can be automatically migrated or duplicated to real tape media, allowing optimal data transfer to the tape drive. This eliminates the need to wait for packets from a LAN and the speed of processing incremental backup consolidations can be increased dramatically. This combination allows administrators to have the best of both worlds: keeping offsite backups elsewhere, while retaining fresh backups on disk for ultra-fast restores!
