3 Build Your Own Media Server AcquireInstallAdminPatchSupportBackup ApplicationServer PlatformBy offering an appliance, Symantec simplifies our customers lives through OpEx savings. This is evident in five key areas: Acquisition, Installation & Integration, Administration, Patching and Upgrades, and Support.Compare this to the complexity of building and supporting your own media server. There are numerous components which must be ordered, interoperability of the components must be verified, install and integration takes hours sometimes days, configuration is tested and performance tweaked. For administering the media server, the customer is faced with multiple components to manage, multiple patches, firmware updates that are separate and need to be tested. And lastly, support often turns into the finger pointing game with 3, 4 or even 5 vendors.As a fully integrated, tested, performance optimized solution, Symantec appliances provide significant benefits by reducing cost, complexity, and risk.StorageOperating SystemSymantec NetBackup AppliancesAdd-on ComponentsSupport

6 Benefits of Single Solution Protection Organizations need a holistic protection strategy, a single platform or solution, to handle the variety of data types and workloads as opposed to integrating a number of disparate point solutions, which proves to be costly and time consuming.Dave RussellGartner Vice President of Storage Technologies and StrategiesInsert Course Title
7 Benefits of Purpose-Built Backup Appliance PBBA systems provide more value and utility to customers than solutions cobbled together with general-purpose disk and software…. In addition, integrated PBBA solutions allow customers to extend their data protection and recovery infrastructure quickly and easily by allowing them to add media servers.Symantec has listened to its customers and developed the NetBackup appliances to assist in lowering their operating expenditures.The need for fully integrated appliances is also supported by industry analysts, such as Robert Amatruda at IDC.Robert AmatrudaIDC White Paper: The Evolution and Value of Purpose- Built Backup Appliances, March 2013, #239730Insert Course Title

9 What Is the NetBackup Appliance? vSphere Backup IntegrationNetBackup with intelligent deduplicationVeritas Storage Foundation™ from SymantecSymantec™ Critical System ProtectionBuilt-in WAN optimizationWhat is NetBackup appliance? Is it just NetBackup pre-installed on hardware?The answer is both yes and no! You may ask why?Yes, NetBackup appliance is simply backup in a box if you are looking for a solution for your data protection and disaster recovery readiness. That is the business problem you are solving with this turnkey appliance that installs in minutes and reduce your operational costs.No, NetBackup appliance is more than a backup in box if you are comparing it with rolling your own hardware for NetBackup or if you are comparing it with third party deduplication appliances. Here is why I say this…NetBackup appliance comes with redundant storage in RAID6 for storing your backupsSymantec worked with Intel to design the hardware for running NetBackup optimally for predictable and consistent performance. Eliminates the guesswork while designing the solution.Many vendors will talk about various processes running on their devices to perform integrity checks, some solutions even need blackout windows to do those operations. NetBackup appliances include Storage Foundation at no additional cost. The storage is managed by Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) and presented to operating system through Veritas File System. Why is this important? SF is industry-leading storage management infrastructure that powers the most mission-critical applications in the enterprise space. It is built for high-performance and resiliency. NetBackup appliance provides 24/7 protection with data integrity on storage provided by the industry leading technology.The Linux based operating system, optimized for NetBackup, harden by Symantec eliminates the cost of deploying and maintaining general purpose operating system and associated IT applications.NetBackup appliances include built-on WAN Optimization driver. Replicate to appliances on remote sites or to the cloud up to 10 times faster on across high latency links.Your backups need to be protected. Symantec Critical System Protection provides non-signature based Host Intrusion Prevention protection. It protects against zero-day attacks using granular OS hardening policies along with application, user and device controls, all pre-defined for you in NetBackup appliance so that you don’t need to worry about configuring it.Best of all, reduce your operational expenditure and eliminate complexity! One patch updates everything in this stack! The most holistic data protection solution with the least number of knobs to operate.Symantec hardened operating systemOptimized hardwareRedundant storage
