Future-proofed data protection for PRIMEFLEX with Veritas Software

FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX is your fast track to modern data center infrastructures, whether converged, hyper-converged or hybrid-cloud. Find out how Veritas NetBackup™ Software can help to protect your business-critical assets in PRIMEFLEX environments.


Partnership between Fujitsu and Veritas

In 1991 Fujitsu and Veritas established a partnership to deliver a consistent set of powerful tools for use across physical, virtual and cloud environments. Joint data center solutions help you accelerate data transformation and migration, extend data protection to the Cloud, and ensure availability for mission-critical applications.


Veritas NetBackup Software

Long recognized as the market share leader in enterprise backup and recovery software, Veritas NetBackup™ eliminates the cost and complexity of point products while keeping your data secure, compliant and available — no matter where it lives. It offers rapid recovery of business-critical data across hybrid, physical, virtual and multi-cloud environments.


NetBackup Licensing structure

Veritas’ statement helps you to understand the simplified licensing concept: ‘You only pay for what you have chosen to be protected by Veritas NetBackup during the past 90 days’. If you know what and where your “active, in use, hot or new data” is, and you have the ability to analyze and clean up this data, you easily can control costs and optimize investments.

The core benefit of using NetBackup to protect your data is having the peace of mind that you will always be able to access all non-expired data you have ever protected and backed up — no matter how much there is, or how many copies of “secondary, not-in-use, cold data” exist.


Innovations and investment protection

Veritas NetBackup combines innovative design with the latest technical advancements to deliver impressive performance numbers with minimal impact. The software provides some specifics for data protection in converged and hyper-converged infrastructures, perfectly fitting FUJITSU’s Integrated System PRIMEFLEX.

Advantage of NetBackup Capacity Meter Model

This license model provides a single key for all existing NetBackup features and functions as well as offering investment protection for upcoming future developments. With the recently introduced flexible element in the data type count in the form of the NetBackup Capacity Meter, you can protect either 1 FETB (Front End Terabytes) of data on physical servers or 1.5 FETB on virtual servers, using the ‘1 TB NetBackup license’. Veritas calls this “Flex-licensing”, which means a big bargain for Fujitsu’s PRIMEFLEX offering for virtualization and cloud.

Erasure coding

With this feature you not only no longer have to install and maintain the software on all nodes and check for dependencies, but can also potentially plan maintenance and downtime windows.

NetBackup Parallel Streaming™

This new technology eliminates performance bottlenecks and optimizes storage for big data environments providing agentless API-based backup and restore of multi-node and scale-out clusters such as Hadoop. With NetBackup Parallel Streaming you can protect large scale-out multi-node clusters, such as Hadoop and HBase much more quickly by streaming data from every node simultaneously.


Deployment options

Regardless of whether you protect the data in a physical, virtual or cloud environment, NetBackup itself can also be deployed in any form:

  • From choosing a physical server like FUJITSU PRIMERGY in a build-your-own approach;
  • Combined with FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS appliances;
  • As a NetBackup Appliance model as well as a virtual appliance;
  • In a virtual machine;
  • In the Cloud.

That level of independence and flexibility is a perfect match for the Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX Integrated System characteristics. Choosing Veritas NetBackup provides such a holistic solution that customers have the peace of mind to be able to run even multiple PRIMEFLEX solutions.
