Illustrates how NetApp backup software reduces backup times and capacity requirements.
First point: At a basic level, NetApp backup software behaves like traditional backup software. It copies primary data to a backup target (NetApp storage).
NetApp’s backup software provides three primary benefits over traditional backup applications—performance, capacity savings, and simplicity of management. The first thing to understand is how we can help customers increase the performance and capacity savings of their backup and recovery operations. At the top level, it’s a very basic premise—we transmit only changed data, not entire changed files. Competitors like Data Domain must still receive all the files from the server, which takes time. NetApp, however, transfers only the changes, giving us a significantly faster backup and recovery time. This is done via Open Systems SnapVault and SnapVault
