Latest NetBackup Appliance Doubles Capacity and Turbocharges Performance
Veritas Technologies LLC, a global leader in information management solutions, today debuted NetBackup™ Copilot, a revolutionary new way to protect Oracle databases. Available with the latest release of Veritas NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1, Copilot provides unmatched visibility into backup and recovery processes and is a robust extension to Veritas’ enterprise-class product portfolio. Today’s announcement continues to strengthen the company’s role with key partners like Oracle.
A New Way to Protect Oracle
With NetBackup Copilot for Oracle, Veritas is significantly improving the backup and recovery of Oracle databases. For the first time ever, Oracle database administrators (DBAs) can maintain control over primary backup and recovery operations using native Oracle tools while secondary operations and policies are managed by NetBackup administrators. This allows Oracle DBAs to manage backup and recovery through tools like RMAN while NetBackup administrators oversee operations such as deduplication, replication and cataloging. In addition, the feature provides full visibility into and awareness of other administrator’s activities.
“As the size of databases continues to increase, IT organizations are challenged to keep up with the demands it places on staff, storage and network resources. NetBackup Copilot for Oracle offers a fresh, new approach to simplifying Oracle database backup and recovery,” said Scott Anderson, Senior Vice President, Appliance Solutions, for Veritas. “Standardizing on NetBackup, a single, unified, data protection platform, helps ensure customers’ critical data is secure and always available.”
