Web Hosting NewsMOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced rapid adoption of Backup Exec 2010 and NetBackup 7 by organizations and partners worldwide, largely due to their need for solutions that reduce data storage growth through deduplication and archiving. According to a recent Symantec survey, 81 percent of respondents stated that data/storage growth was their biggest data protection challenge.

Through integrated deduplication at the client and media server, Backup Exec 2010 and NetBackup 7 help mid-sized and enterprise organizations take control of information growth as this technology eliminates redundant data and reuses existing storage resources. Symantec’s deduplication technology also allows customers to improve their broader infrastructure by reducing network utilization by up to 99 percent. Symantec extends storage savings by delivering the benefits of deduplication to the archive environment with Enterprise Vault or with the new Backup Exec Archive Option, allowing administrators to easily consolidate data and maximize disk as archive storage for management and resource savings. In addition, NetBackup and Backup Exec deliver comprehensive virtual machine protection that improves backup performance and further drives down operational costs.
