More details

FeatureBenefits
HyperFactor deduplication technology
  • Patented deduplication algorithm (not hash-based) designed to reduce storage needs by up to 25 times or more, radically reducing costs while maintaining enterprise-class data integrity
Backup performance: Sustained inline deduplication throughput rates up to 500 MBps or more
  • Improves the speed and reliability of backup operations to protect business-critical data
Even faster restores
  • Restores data faster to get mission-critical systems back online quicker
Capacity: Scalable to 36 TB of useable capacity which could provide up to 900 TB or more backup storage capacity
  • Enables easy scaling of capacity to meet ever-increasing requirements over time
Clustering
  • Allows two nodes to be clustered within a single system for higher performance and availability
Native replication
  • High-speed automated electronic replication of backup data between multiple data centers and remote office locations
  • Leverages deduplication to lower network bandwidth requirements
  • Avoids risky hashing algorithms to ensure enterprise-class data integrity at all sites
  • One-to-one, many-to-many and many-to-one replication support for enhanced disaster recovery capabilities
Virtual tape library Emulation of up to:
  • 12 virtual libraries
  • 256 virtual drives
  • 128,000 virtual cartridges
Symantec OST application programming interface support
  • Provides tighter integration with Symantec NetBackup
  • Improves the manageability and control of backup images
  • Simplifies administration of backup, restore and replication operations
FSI-CIFS
  • Provides new backup interface—FSI-CIFS for Microsoft Windows-based network attached storage backup environments
  • CIFS access control supports:
    • Microsoft Active Directory Domain: managed by existing company domain controller
    • Workgroup Domain: users created/managed through PT Manager
Data Integrity: Non-hash-based deduplication technology
  • Eliminates possibility of hash collisions which have historically caused data loss, corruption and disruption of operations
Non-disruption: Easily integrates without making radical changes to the environment
  • Improves performance and reliability of backup and recovery operations
  • Qualified with leading enterprise backup applications
Configurations can be optimized for performance, hardware redundancy and specific disk storage needs
  • Customized configurations for your environment
Acquisition cost can be up to 80 percent lower than other disk-based data protection solutions
  • Lower total cost of ownership versus standard “first generation” non-deduplication solutions across many customer scenarios and user profiles
