The New Backup and Recovery Paradigm

Data backup and recovery technology is a key element of NetApp Integrated Data Protection portfolio—one of NetApp's eight key storage purchasing criteria for enabling a flexible and efficient shared IT infrastructure.

NetApp® core Snapshot® and disk-to-disk replication technologies change the backup and recovery paradigm. Our customers leverage these technologies to modernize backup and recovery, adapt to data growth and virtualization, and streamline management of terabytes to petabytes of data.

These technologies are among the reasons that Gartner included NetApp in their Enterprise Disk-Based Backup/Recovery Magic Quadrant in the Visionaries Quadrant[1].

Customers are increasingly choosing NetApp backup recovery solutions to safeguard critical data and drive greater operational efficiencies by reducing backup time, improving data recovery, and cutting infrastructure, tape, and administrative costs. NetApp backups transfer only new or changed blocks to shrink backup windows, minimize network traffic, and reduce disk capacity requirements by as much as 90%.

NetApp also integrates with advanced management solutions from CommVault and Syncsort to streamline data management across disk and tape, physical and virtual, and NetApp FAS or third-party environments. These integrated solutions combine the speed and efficiency of NetApp core Snapshot copies and replication technologies with application-integrated catalogs that span disk and tape for fast search and recovery.

Customers are increasingly choosing NetApp backup and recovery solutions to safeguard critical data and drive greater operational efficiencies to help their business go further, faster.
