QNAP have announced that it has become a partner in the Veritas™ Technology Ecosystem. With in-depth cooperation, QNAP and Veritas provide a comprehensive storage solution tailored for the data and system backup needs of small and medium businesses. An all-in-one backup NAS appliance solution is also made possible for users to deploy and configure their backup infrastructure faster and easier, providing a higher-performance and highly-scalable backup storage for users running the Veritas Backup Exec solution on QNAP NAS.
Veritas Backup Exec 16 features an intuitive and user-friendly interface, allowing users to streamline their backup tasks across virtual, physical and connected cloud environments. Through deep integration with Microsoft® Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and VMware vStorage™ APIs for Data Protection (VADP), the Veritas application effectively minimizes the impact on the CPU, memory, and I/O performance of the virtual host. Coupled with global deduplication and changed-blocks tracking technology, the recovery time and disk space required for backup files are greatly reduced. Veritas Backup Exec also supports the instant recovery of VMware® and Hyper-V® virtual machines, providing an immediate usable copy of the server and data for disaster recovery, testing, and application deployment.
In the past, professional IT staff were required to deploy enterprise-level IT infrastructure and plan correlating backup solutions. With the integration of Veritas Backup Exec and QNAP NAS, these staff can now easily use QNAP NAS as a high-performance backup storage. Moreover, by installing Veritas Backup Exec™ on Microsoft® Windows Server® running in QNAP’s Virtualization Station, users can instantly turn the QNAP NAS into a backup appliance and immediately perform virtual machine or physical machine backup tasks on the QNAP NAS, providing users with a more cost-effective, high-performance, and highly-scalable backup storage solution.
