From Symantec – August 27, 2012 – Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced new solutions and technical integrations with VMware across its product portfolio to provide higher levels of protection for virtualized environments. Together, Symantec and VMware enable SMBs and enterprises to use the benefits of virtualization without compromising protection.

IT administrators are seeking flexible solutions to help accelerate virtualization as a first step in moving toward a cloud service delivery model. Symantec can address this transition with leading solutions now tightly integrated with VMware cloud infrastructure. As companies move business critical applications from physical to virtual, Symantec can help to:

  • Provide deeper visibility and control of virtual applications
  • Reduce impact on performance due to backup and recovery operations while increasing protection effectiveness
  • Execute high performance security and compliance trusted across virtual and cloud infrastructures
  • Improve application storage performance and availability

Backup, Recovery and Archiving

Symantec Backup Exec and Symantec NetBackup help organizations of all sizes make the shift to virtualization faster, easier and smoother by giving IT administrators the agility and confidence to automate further and faster. By archiving and offloading stale data, Enterprise Vault enables customers to further reduce their data center footprint and scale the applications and systems that are targeted for virtualization.

NetBackup 7.6, scheduled to release later this year, plans to include NetBackup Accelerator now for VMware cloud infrastructure that provides up to 100 times faster backup while new NetBackup Instant Recovery for VMware cloud infrastructure will recover virtual machines 800 times faster. Planned new features for VMware vCloud Director and VMware vCenter Server will make management and automation even easier.
