of data from the premises to a growing list of cloud storage providers.
Also, new platform support to provide automated Bare Metal Restore of more platforms and
configurations, to expand embedded deduplication, and to address market needs for database agents.

Why should existing customers upgrade?

Unite physical and virtual machine backupsBy upgrading to the latest version of NetBackup, customers
will quickly discover how easily they can protect their entire infrastructurephysical , virtual, applications,
and serverswith a single, integrated backup and disaster recovery solution.
Reduce management and storage requirements for virtual serversIntegrated virtual and physical
deduplication capabilities in NetBackup dramatically reduce backup storage requirements by up to 50
percent and reduce bandwidth consumption up to 99 percent.
Meet recovery objectives with flexibilityRapid granular recovery of entire virtual machines,
applications, or files/folders from a single-pass backup helps meet the most demanding requirements.
Recover quickly in the event of disasterIntegrated disaster recovery and physical-to-virtual (P2V)
conversions enable customers to get systems backup up and running quickly, whether to same hardware,
dissimilar hardware, or a virtual environment.
Efficient application recoveryRecover individual files in seconds with patented Granular Recovery

Ask your customer

1. Are you running VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V in your environment?
NetBackup 7.5 with V-Ray provides deep visibility into VMware and Hyper-V environments for fast and
efficient backup and recovery. V-Ray enables backups of entire VMware or Hyper-V guests, with the
ability to recover at the virtual machine, virtual disk, application, and file/folder level, all from a singlepass backup.
2. Do you use multiple applications to protect your physical and virtual environments?
NetBackup 7.5 unifies physical and virtual protection with a single console that can protect your
entire environment. This enables you to take advantage of deduplication across physical and virtual
environments, thus reducing network bandwidth usage even further, as well as further reducing storage.
3. Would you like the ability to complete backups within the allotted window AND reduce the amount
of storage consumed by backups?
NetBackup 7.5 uniquely offers integrated deduplication and archiving technology to optimize any
backup environment. Client/source deduplication can make backups significantly faster, enabling you
to complete backups well within your backup window and to reduce the amount of storage used for
backups. Also, with NetBackup Accelerator, traditional full backup times are reduced to the speed of
incremental backups, lowering the stress of achieving RTO/RPO of the most demanding SLAs.
4. Can you recover individual files all from a single-pass backup?
NetBackup 7.5 includes patented Granular Recovery Technology. Recover just the information you need
in seconds from a single-pass backupan individual email in Exchange, a document or list Item in
SharePoint, or even a single user attribute in Active Directorywith no need to reboot or spend hours
restoring everything.

5. Do you have a disaster recovery strategy in place?
NetBackup 7.5 is a seamless, automated solution that can be used to quickly restore systems, even
to dissimilar hardware. NetBackup 7.5 can also convert backups of physical machines into virtual
machines, enabling instant disaster recovery in a virtual environment.

Granular recovery of data can be performed only after staging the original backup to an alternate location.
NetBackup does not require additional staging and can perform granular recovery from a single-pass backup.
CommVault requires twice as much storage for VMware backups. Single-file restore functionality requires
double the amount of storage space as VMDK and single file data stored separately.

What to Sell?

vs. EMC: NetWorker, Avamar, and Data Domain

Please contact your channel partner or Symantec sales representative for SKUs and pricing for NetBackup 7.5.

vs. Veeam Backup and Replication v5
A backup application for VMware virtual environments.
NetBackup unifies physical and virtual protection with a single console that can protect your customers
entire environment, including physical, VMware, and Hyper-V. Today Veeam can only protect virtual
environmentsthis means that the physical server Veeam resides on is not protected unless you have a
separate backup solution.
Deduplication is also an advantage for NetBackup. Veeam cannot deduplicate across backup jobs. Veeam
puts backup job data into separate backup containers which cannot deduplicate across one another.
For file/folder recovery, Veeam requires mounting of VMDKs and the copying of data across the network.
Also, in order to index, Veeam has to go back and scan the backupindexing cannot be done in a single
pass. This is a very complex and slow process.

NetBackup Platform protects completely, stores efficiently, and recovers anywhere. EMC needs three
different, loosely integrated products to deliver all that NetBackup Platform offers.
NetBackup offers the most flexible choices for deployments, form factor (software or appliances),
deduplicate anywhere (source, media server, or target), and type (in-line or post-process deduplication).
With NetBackup appliances, you are not locked into a hardware platform, unlike EMCs Avamar and
Data Domain offerings. If needed, the software license from the appliance can be transferred to another
hardware platform and vice versa.
NetBackup Intelligent Deduplication is integrated into NetBackup where the unique V-Ray visibility
into data streams makes it possible to see the actual object boundaries. This visibility enables efficient
deduplication data streams unlike EMCs processor-intensive approach.
