Too much data? Rethink storage with Symantec NetBackup

Servers, Storage and Networking | Posted on August 4, 2015 by Jeremy Bandley

If you’re like many organizations, you’re seeing the amount of data you deal with grow at unprecedented rates. While this may be true, it doesn’t mean you need more of the same old solutions to manage it.

In fact, in order to overcome this enormous challenge, organizations need to re-invent the way they look at data in order to succeed, stay compliant and remain productive in this new era of information-overload.

Read on to learn more about these new perspectives, and how Symantec’s Veritas solutions reduce the complexity of data protection.

3 fundamental new ways to look at data

In the following video, our expert Matt Sirbu outlines three important concepts when when it comes to re-defining your approach to storage.

 Essentially, we’re suggesting three primary beliefs:


 1. Data doesn’t equal information
Companies rightfully assume their information is valuable. However, the amount of value they can get out of it does not depend on how much of it they keep and store.


2. More data doesn’t equal more value
Organizations are accumulating vast stores of data simply because it’s easier to store it than to make sense of it. High value – or “target rich” – data exists within enterprise data stores but companies are struggling to determine what is valuable and what is not. In 2014, the majority of IT budgets were spent solely on maintaining existing infrastructure and half of enterprises kept their IT staff levels the same or decreased them.


3. Information is more important than infrastructure
While many enterprises have traditionally invested in infrastructure to help manage their data center environments, increasingly, they are recognizing that additional infrastructure does not address the issue. Heterogeneity is a requirement. Hypervisors, storage media, legacy applications, operating systems and cloud platforms are all just means to an end.


Find a solution with Symantec’s Veritas NetBackup

Having the new concept in mind is great, but what about actually choosing a solution that can get you there? While there are a number of vendors attacking storage problems in similar ways, it is Symantec that originated those three bullets above.

Symantec NetBackup offers a solution that enables you to free up valuable data, and get rid of the junk.

The Symantec NetBackup Platform simplifies the protection of your information by automating advanced technologies and standardizing operations across applications, platforms, and virtual environments.

That means being able to protect completely, store efficiently, recover anywhere, and manage centrally across heterogeneous operating systems and storage hardware including tape and disk.

Integrated de-duplication, replication, and virtual machine protection helps improve storage efficiency, infrastructure use, and recovery times. A single console offers multi-site monitoring, analytics, and reporting, which allows customers to standardize operations and risk management.

And unlike other offerings, Symantec’s products help 86% of the top Fortune 500 companies with their storage needs. With the ability to derive insights from data, to inform the right decisions, Symantec customers are agile, productive, and profitable.
