VMworld 2012: Storage Takes Center Stage (Part 1)


Symantec: Wide Range Of VMware Data Protection Options

Mountain View, Calif.-based Symantec unveiled several new solutions across its entire product portfolio to ensure higher levels of data protection for VMware virtualized environments.

They include NetBackup Instant Recovery for VMware, which allows virtual machines to be started from its backup image without restoring the full version and later using VMware Storage vMotion to move it back into production; VM Ready NetBackup Appliances for easy deployment of the company's NetBackup recovery solution to protect up to 4,800 virtual machines; a new version of Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing for VMware, which integrates directly into VMware ESX to improve SAN storage I/O, performance and availability for VMware vSphere; and a new beta version of its Veritas Cluster Server with automatic application failover for VMware virtual machines.
