VERITAS said its Backup Exec for Windows Powered Server Appliances leverages the Web-based management user interface (UI) in Windows Powered server appliances, resulting in an easy-to-use backup and recovery solution. Dell will be the first company to integrate this new edition of VERITAS Backup Exec with its PowerVault NAS servers.
“Windows-based NAS devices are taking the market by storm. They are inexpensive, easy to install and easy to manage, but they need a solid backup and recovery product to be a complete solution,” said Arun Taneja, senior analyst, Enterprise Storage Group. “With the support of VERITAS Backup Exec, the customer gets a premier backup solution optimized for the NAS environment.”
According to the company, the incorporation of VERITAS Backup Exec into the Web-based management UI in Windows Powered devices makes it easier and quicker to deploy and manage self-contained data protection solutions for Windows Powered server appliances, including NAS devices. The UI framework enables administrators to back up and recover NAS data via high-performance disk, direct attached tape devices, or even shared tape devices deployed within a storage area network (SAN), all from a centralized console.
