Synchronizing remote office data with headquarters is the goal of the new remote office back-up solution that combines Sun StorageTek hardware with a Symantec appliance.
The Sun StorageTek Ready Solution for Symantec PureDisk Remote Office Back-up Appliance combines Sun FireTM x4100 servers, Symantec's NetBackup PureDisk Remote Office Edition and Sun StorageTekTM 6140 modular disk arrays.
"Working with Symantec, we've created an easy-to-deploy backup and recovery solution built on Sun's award-winning x64 servers and storage systems that enables customers to secure and centralize remote office data while mitigating risk and managing cost," said Julius Lukacs, Sun's senior director of market development.
The unified solution simplifies and centralizes data protection, explained Matt Kixmoeller, senior director of NetBackup Product Management at Symantec. "The tight integration between Symantec software and Sun hardware provides greater online data history and enables faster recovery in meeting compliance requirements for data protection," he said.
It improves performance and reduces the storage consumption of backups and the cost of tape and back-up administration by as much as four times over typical costs. Data volume is consolidated into as little as 10 times less than the original volume with a "global data de-duplication." The solution reduces the volume of backup data running over the wide area network (WAN) to the data center by up to 90 percent versus traditional backup methods.
