Speed and Simplicity for Backup and Recovery

Backup and recovery technology is a key element of integrated data protection—one of NetApp’s eight key purchasing criteria for enabling a flexible and efficient shared IT infrastructure.

SnapVault®, our flagship D2D backup solution, safeguards NetApp® data faster and more cost effectively, leveraging block-level incremental replication and Snapshot® copies for reliable, low-overhead D2D backup. SnapVault is one reason that Gartner positioned NetApp in the Visionaries Quadrant of the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Disk-Based Backup/Recovery.

SnapVault protects data at the block level–copying only the data blocks that have changed since the last backup, not entire files. This means that you can take more frequent backups during the day. And it reduces the storage footprint because no redundant data is moved or stored.

NetApp SnapVault changes the backup paradigm, enabling you to better adapt to data growth and virtualization, and to streamline management of terabytes to petabytes of data. SnapVault D2D backups take place directly between NetApp systems, minimizing the need for external infrastructure and appliances.
