Symantec NetBackup 5220 is a single-vendor enterprise backup appliance that installs in minutes, with expandable storage starting and deduplication for physical and virtual systems. Only Symantec appliances deduplicate on both the client and target. Equipped with V-Ray technology, they provide unique visibility into virtual environments that speeds recovery and reduce storage costs. Content-aware deduplication reduces the size of backups by up to 50 times and network bandwidth utilization by up to 99 percent, so you can backup and replicate faster. Pay once for deduplication and replicate securely to any number of targets.
Operational simplicity and easy integration
The NetBackup 5220 comes pre-installed with software and can be set up in a matter of minutes to start a NetBackup deployment or may be integrated into existing NetBackup deployments. The appliance can be easily managed via an existing instance of the NetBackup OpsCenter management console. Pre-installed NetBackup can be managed through familiar administration consoles. Symantec provides end-to-end technical support for the appliance, reducing operational overhead on IT teams.
Advanced virtual machine protection
NetBackup 5220, enabled by V-Ray technology, breaks down virtual versus physical silos and delivers simple, yet comprehensive backup and recovery. This award-winning unification allows for more standardization and consistent policies, reduced duplication of effort, eliminates redundant storage pools and lowers licensing, training, and operational costs. Protect your virtual machines through deeper integration VMware vStorage Application Programming Interfaces (API) for Data Protection (VADP), end-to-end SAN transport through VMware backup hosts, block level incremental backups, Automated Virtual Machine (VM) discovery and backup (VMware Intelligent Policy), content-aware deduplication, and much more.
Storage and bandwidth efficient backups
With built-in deduplication technology, NetBackup 5220 appliance eliminates the backup of duplicate data offering storage savings of up to 50 times. This allows for cost efficient, long-term retention of data on disk, resulting in faster and more reliable backup, and recovery of data.
Inline and post process deduplicationProduct Highlights
The appliance supports both inline and post-process deduplication. The disk subsystem on the appliance can be partitioned as deduplicate or non-deduplicate storage or a combination of the two. When used in a combination mode, backups can be sent to the non-deduplicate partition for fastest possible backups. The non-deduplicate partition acts as a staging area for the backups. The backups can then be moved to the deduplicate partition during off-peak hours for maximum storage optimization. This feature is especially useful for users that are looking to solve the problem of backup windows and backup storage growth via one single backup solution.
