Symantec announces a slew of products, Geminare enhances service

Enterprise Vault, NetBackup Cloud Storage, NetBackup 5000 dedupe appliance

Symantec recently announced Enterprise Vault 9.0 and its Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector technology, which combines e-mails from Microsoft Hosted Exchange with on-premise archived content into a central repository. 

The product, which integrates legal discovery with archiving, also now supports Microsoft Exchange 2010 Service Pack 1, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and Domino 8.5.1. Enterprise Vault Discovery Collector manages the discovery of unmanaged information from desktops and laptops and information that has not been archived. The new version of Enterprise Vault also includes deduplication technology which reduces the review and export of redundant files. Enterprise Vault now also supports Symantec FileStore and is integrated with NetBackup.

The company also announced a deduplication appliance for NetBackup and NetBackup Cloud Storage, which lets organizations store data within the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network (SDN) cloud. The NetBackup 5000 deduplication appliance allows for source or target-based deduplication and increases backup performance. It provides as much as 96TB of deduplication capacity and increases backup throughput to 4.3TB/hour per node. The NetBackup 5000 is now shipping.

NetBackup Cloud Storage allows the automation of data backup and recovery into the cloud. Symantec claims it will extend the capability to Backup Exec later this year.

In other cloud news, Geminare on Tuesday introduced a recovery as a service package for enterprise-size businesses that includes Cloud Recovery 2.0 Enterprise and Cloud Storage Assurance (CSA) 2.0 Enterprise. The two solutions are combined with file and e-mail archiving, search and audit capabilities.

Geminare's recovery as a service includes replicating a customer's server environment to a a cloud vendor such as AT&T Synaptic or Amazon S3 and allowing for failback. The company has added support for Linux, Unix and AIX-based servers, as well as encryption and support for 250 servers per site.
