  • Point of the slide: What are the big trends affecting the data protection space.Everybody’s doing it, it’s complicated, and we can help
  • Point of the slide:
  • With a combined 40% market share, Symantec is the leader, with more market share than the next three largest suppliers combined. We dominate both Fortune 500 enterprises and as well as global 2000 industries and are strong across telco, healthcare and financial services where all of the top 10 businesses are Symantec customers.
  • One Size Does Not Fit AllSymantec’s comprehensive tailored solutions address the needs of the smallest businesses to the largest enterprisesNorton Online BackupBackup ExecNow with software, cloud, & appliances for SMBsNet BackupLive replication for SAN replication, Linux/Unix system recovery, 100s of terabyes of data or moreEnterprise VaultMore good stuff!
  • VMware Agent Example Configuration 1This basic example of a VMware environment with a single ESX server being protected by Backup Exec is meant to illustrate the following points: Backup Exec can discover ESX hosts and their VM resources by either hostname or IP address in the Backup Exec console VMware discovery events occur over the LAN Backup data captured through Backup Exec’s VMware Agent and the vStorage API does not necessarily travel over the LAN, but more commonly travels from the datastore directly to Backup Exec-managed storage over the SANAgent SummaryvStorage API for Data Protection IntegrationOptimized Virtual Machine DeduplicationvSphere Block Level Differential/Incremental BackupApplication Granular Recovery (Exchange, SQL, AD) from a Single-Pass VM BackupSymantec Backup Exec™ Management Plug-in for VMware® vCenter and vSphere clientDynamic Inclusion of Newly Found or Created Virtual Machines
  • Some of the implications of poor visibility include:Seeing half the picture with two separate solutions for physical and virtual backups adds to complexity.Recovering files is a shot in the dark because you don’t know where they are. With virtual machine aware deduplication, backup storage requirements are greater than they should be.When you can’t see new or moved machines, you can’t protect them. This in turn can low rollout of virtual machines with lots of labor intensive backup administration.
  • V-Ray is the name for a group of Symantec technologies that give customers additional visibility and insight into their virtual environments as well as transparent backup and recovery across physical and virtual environments. V-Ray provides visibility into virtual systems that enables customers to more confidently secure, protect, run, and recover business-critical systems as well as reduced complexity and costs.In a few minutes, I’ll cover how V-Ray improves unified protection, single file and application recovery, deduplication and automated protection.
  • Backups can affect performance and availability of the virtual environment if a traditional backup application agent is installed on each and every virtual machine. With multiple virtual machines on the same physical host, network bandwidth is much more limited than in physical environments. Thus, moving backup data across the network can quickly exceed available bandwidth. In addition, backup agents on virtual machines consume virtual machine memory and processing resources and require administrative overhead to maintain. NetBackup’s off-host image backups accomplished through virtual machine API integration virtually eliminate the overhead of backup processing on virtual machines and network bandwidth requirements. This translates into greater backup performance while removing the need to install, maintain and upgrade agents on every virtual machine. NetBackup supports full and incremental backups of virtual machines and works with any backup storage. In addition to VMware, we also support Microsoft’s Hyper-V.
  • Deduplication designed specifically for VMwareEnhanced virtual machine “vmdk aware” deduplication*NetBackupdeduplicates VM data based on what is inside the vmdkGlobally deduplicate data between virtual systems and physicalSo, why is this better?Competitors have no idea what is inside virtual machineThey deduplicatevmdk files like any big file – less efficientGlobal deduplication from virtual to physical, virtual to virtual
  • Netbackup supports stage-less file level recovering , meaning that only one backup pass is required – data is written to backup storage just once. Competitors often imply that they provide instant single file restore. This is not possible with most competitors as they only index the backup of the entire VM (vmdk file). They do not index what is *inside* the VM. This is a significant competitive advantage that NBU provides.NetBackup supports single file recovery directly from a VM backup or backup storage. All files are cataloged so that you can locate them in minutes as opposed to hours or even days.Our capabilities are available for Linux and Windows.
  • Siloed data protection solutions for physical and virtual infrastructure only show you half the picture, adding to complexity, unnecessary backup storage growth, backup problems and slower recovery. Point solutions are dead. They no longer serve a market need and represent a risky investment.
  • Earlier we heard VIC discuss the realities of running both physical and virtual servers for the foreseeable future. Vic realized that two separate systems for backup and recovery simply wouldn’t cut it. NetBackup Data Protection is designed to work across both Physical and Virtual environments. So the benefits to customers include More standardization and consistent policies and SLAs Backup and VM guys are no longer Duplicating work Eliminates Redundant storage pools Lowers licensing, training, and operational costs Now you’re in keeping with the drivers and benefits of a consolidation strategy
  • Slide 9 - Granular Recovery of Virtualized Application Servers (Animations)The release of Backup Exec 2010 truly helps your customers virtualize with confidence by providing first to market granular recovery for virtual applications including Exchange, Active Directory and SQL.When customer VMware environments are protected with the Backup Exec 2010 Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructure, an administrator can easily restore an entire application/database or granular SQL, Exchange or AD application objects. Other vendors on the market today can do thisonly through a second application backup – lengthening backup windows and utilizing more storage space for redundant data.
  • Virtual machines by design are easy to clone and deploy which explains why virtual machine sprawl is a growing management challenge within IT organizations today. Many IT managers would be hard pressed to give an accurate count as to how many virtual machines they’re running or whether or not they’re all being protected. And as the number of servers being virtualized grows, management of backup and recovery becomes more problematic. With Virtual Machine Intelligent Policy – backup admins can automatically discover new, cloned or moved Virtual Machiness and easily protect them without having to edit backup policies. Customers have been asking for this feature! It basically let’s you put virtual machine protection on “auto-pilot”Virtual machine Intelligent Policy automatically adjusts for any other changes that VMware technologies such as VMotion, Storage Vmotion, Distributed Resource Scheduling (DRS) etc. have made to every virtual machine. Virtual Machine Intelligent Policy is currently only available for VMware in the NetBackup 7.1 release….but support Microsoft Hyper-V is planned for future release.Another exciting feature within VM Intelligent policy is how you apply resource limits for load balancing and efficient throttling for better backup performance. Let’s look at that more closely (NEXT SLIDE)
  • So why should a customer be interested in VIP? Traditional backups can create unbalanced overhead on ESX servers if the host name of each Client is used in the Policy. For example, basic backups would have a number of hostnames in the Policy and while the number of Clients that can be performing backups at any time can be limited in the Policy, if all those clients reside on the same ESX <click> that system will be overloaded while the other systems are not being used. It is difficult to prevent this using traditional backup methods. This is where VMware Intelligent Policy comes in<click>
  • The basic backup Policy is recreated and it communicates with vCenter. Basically, NetBackup gets a list of Clients from vCenter and it doesn’t matter which system they are on, then, using filters, NetBackup can instruct vCenter to send data based on any number of criteria. Some of the filters that can be use are things such as: Backup all the machines in Power On stateBackup all the machines where OS type is Windows 2008Backup all the virtual machines for which display name starts with VMprodOr, we can get even more granularBackup all the virtual machines that are on Power State On in data store Storage 1 if the OS type is RedHat LinuxBackup all the virtual machines in folder Dev if they belong to cluster Cluster03In addition, this filtering can allow vCenter to balance the backup load across the various ESX servers thus improving performance while reducing impact.
  • Symantec NetBackup™, Cisco® Unified Computing System, and VMware® vSphere™Joint Backup Performance BenchmarkStarts with VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB).
  • Supports mixed environments – With NetBackup 7.0 engineering now extends this functionality by supporting the same functionality for media server deduplication pools (MSDP) within the same NetBackup domain. Now optimized duplication is supported between media server deduplication pools (MSDP) and even supported from an MSDP to a PureDisk deduplication pool, providing more flexibility. In case of the PureDisk pool or the MSDP, the optimized duplication process is performed by NetBackup’s built-in replication technology, and as such independent from the underlying storage or hardware infrastructure, making cross platform duplication finally possible.  Follows the most efficient path – Storage life cycle policies have always leveraged the most efficient path when duplication is configured between two similar deduplication pools or OST devices. For the first duplication run the underlying replication technology of the OST device or deduplication pool was leveraged. NetBackup 7.0 now extends this for the automated job retries as well. Originally the default behavior for optimized duplication was set to failover to a regular deduplication when the first attempt failed. In NetBackup 7.0 every automated retry will now continue to retry over the same optimized duplication path, reducing the impact on the network.
