Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructures Solution Brief
VMware's Virtual Infrastructure 3 (VI3) and now vSphere 4.0 have become widely adopted in organizations looking to virtualize their IT
environments to save cost. As a result of larger numbers of systems becoming virtualized, companies are looking for ever more efficient backup and quicker recovery of
their virtual systems to maintain business productivity and cost savings that server virtualization delivers.
This includes not only the guest virtual machines, but also
the applications that have also been installed on those guest virtual machines such as Microsoft Exchange®, SQL Server®, and Active Directory®. A lost VMware server could
impact productivity up to several hours, or even days, for multiple departments while the IT administrator struggles to recover the virtual environment and the individual
guest virtual machines.

Symantec™ Corporate: Holyoke Medical Center Success Story
Reclaiming Over 6,000 Hours a Year for Patient Care with Solutions from Symantec and Dell - Managing 45,000 emergency room visits and 7,200 inpatient discharges per year used to generate a lot of paperwork for Holyoke Medical Center.
Using an endpoint virtualization solution from Symantec to streamline access to personal workspaces, the center’s 150 doctors are using a new electronic medical record system.
Less than a year after deployment, 80 percent of the hospital’s records are being entered digitally.
Secure login is achieved by putting a finger on a biometric pad at
any terminal in the hospital. Seconds later, doctors are logged into their own workspace, saved from the last point in time they used it. Powered by Dell PowerEdge servers,
the solution is saving the hospital 10 minutes per doctor per day, adding up to more than 6,250 hours a year reclaimed for patient care.
Symantec™ Endpoint Virtualization Product Review by DABCC
Symantec established the Endpoint Virtualization Group, bringing together technologies from Altiris, AppStream and Nsuite
under one umbrella with the goals of giving users a flexible rich desktop experience, while keeping a handle on costs and enhancing control of the desktop environment. With all
the right components in place, the Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite (EVS) is becoming a compelling option for enhancing virtual and traditional desktop implementations.
Not to be confused with the client side hypervisor initiatives from Citrix (XenClient) or VMware (vClient), this technology is best described as a workspace management solution.
EVS virtualizes the endpoint, providing users a common desktop experience regardless of whether they use a rich (fat) client, thin client, or web browser.

Virtual Machine Protection with Symantec NetBackup™ 7 - There’s little question that server virtualization is the
single biggest game-changing trend in IT today. Budget-strapped IT departments are racing to embrace the promise of virtualization for many reasons:
Extends current IT server investment—maximizes each server’s compute capacity
Optimizes server utilization—one server can run multiple operating systems (OS) and applications
Allows for flexible platform dynamics—run Windows® today, Linux® tomorrow
Smaller server footprint—very green IT that reduces energy and IT real estate costs
Because of the obvious total cost of ownership benefits of virtualization, and the maturing of the technology, virtual machines
are assuming more business-critical roles in the data center. In a recent Symantec data center survey, more than 75% of all
small, medium, and large enterprise companies listed server virtualization as one of the top technologies they are adopting.
Symantec NetBackup™ 7 award-winning backup technology - Since the 6.5 release, Symantec NetBackup™ software has featured an
award-winning backup technology designed specifically for VMware® virtual machine protection. In addition to providing integrated support for virtual machine
backups, NetBackup engineering also created a unique single file restore solution. NetBackup Granular File Restore
provides the unique ability to index, search for and restore anything including a single file (Windows®) or an entire virtual
machine from a single backup pass. And this is accomplished with no modifications to the existing backup environment.
With the release of VMware vSphere™ 4, VMware has created significant improvements in the area of virtual machine data
protection through the vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). The NetBackup 7 release natively supports all of the new
features provided by this API and provides additional patent-pending enhancements that no other backup vendor provides.
NetBackup™ 7 Feature Overview of VMware vSphere Integration - When Symantec NetBackup first released its patent pending NetBackup VMware virtual machine protection technology, it garnered a number
of awards including the first "Best of VMworld" award handed out during VMware's popular VMworld user conference. NetBackup won because of the simple and straightforward
integration that NetBackup provided for protecting VMware. This technology is called NetBackup Granular File Restore. NetBackup Granular File Restore provides the unique
ability to index, search for and restore anything including a single file (Windows) or an entire virtual machine from one backup pass.
With the 7.release, NetBackup provides
even better virtual machine protection. Utilizing VMware‟s new vStorage API for Data Protection, NetBackup 7 can perform a clientless backup that truly provides all the
capabilities that normally require client software installed inside the system to be backed up (Windows). Efficient block level incrementals are now possible and there is no
longer any requirement for a Backup Proxy or additional holding tank storage.
