Connect Symantec Backup Exec to Cloud Storage with TwinStrata CloudArray
Limitless storage space, no more tapes, fastest data recovery
Symantec Backup Exec offers many advantages to businesses struggling with the complexities of data protection and backup. Backup Exec supports backup to disk to eliminate the need for local tape. In combination with CloudArray, backup copies of data can be easily pushed to a choice of cloud providers extending data protection off-premise and enabling robust disaster recovery strategies.
Backup Exec also supports Deduplication, which will reduce the overall amount of data sent to disk. Additionally, overall bandwidth and offsite storage requirements are greatly reduced.
CloudArray is an enterprise-class data protection solution that enables organizations to create affordable and secure data protection and disaster recovery plans that include online remote storage for backups, archives and critical business data. In the event of a disruption or outage, the data can be restored on-site, off-site, or in the cloud. CloudArray seamlessly integrates existing applications to the storage cloud while providing secure, anywhere, anytime application accessibility
For companies that are using tape systems or disk-to-disk backup for data protection, they can now select CloudArray as the target backup solution. CloudArray eliminates all the logistics and costs typically associated with media transport or tape vaulting services and does not require large capital investments in infrastructure whenever expansion is required.
Data Availability and Security
For increased data protection, CloudArray offers data copy policies that replicate data across local storage and a variety of third party storage cloud providers to ensure high data availability. CloudArray also enables replication between service providers. CloudArray compresses and encrypts data prior to transporting it to public cloud storage to ensure data security and privacy. CloudArray leverages the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), adopted by the U.S. government and also used to secure top secret information.
Optimize IT Operational Efficiency
Companies can now instantly respond to changing business requirements by taking advantage of an adaptable infrastructure and adding resources as needed. Storage cloud infrastructures eliminate barriers and streamline IT operational processes that exist in most mid-sized enterprises today.
CloudArray is available in several configurations to meet customer needs and requirements. It is available in a virtual appliance supporting VMware ESX/ESXi, Citrix XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V platforms. It is also available in a physical appliance for customers that want a dedicated physical server to run CloudArray.
